    There was a thread started awhile back that listed what was believed to be the rarest of ALL the Oakleys. I know there were a fair amount of radars listed.

    I would say yes personally, but some think customs are a totally different category. I guess it depends if the OP is considering customs also.

    Well they were custom for the various riders on the tour, not sold to the public etc, but still churned out by HQ. so yeah, depends on what the OP's criteria is I guess.

    The rarest official Radar releases are the following, NOTHING else comes even remotely close:

    Pearl White - Slate (Path) 24-160 SEUNG YEOP LEE (Korean exclusive)
    Team Blue - G30 (Path Vented) 24-161 EUN HEE JI (Korean exclusive)

    Others that could be included among the rarities would be:

    Metallic Red - +Red (Path) 09-672, and Metallic Red - +Red (Range) 09-666, both withdrawn upon release
    Polished White - G30 (Path) 12-799 THOMAS FRISCHKNECHT
    Jet Black - Black (Path) 12-770 CSC (European exclusive)
    24-098 Italy, and 24-135 - 24-140 (France/Norway/Germany/Spain/Holland/Sweden) European country Radars
    Blue - Black (Path) 24-327 YUVRAJ SINGH (European exclusive)

    Additionally, you could consider the following that was sold via the Livestock website in a quantity of 8 pairs additional to the few some cyclists were given, it did not have a sku, but the handful of pairs were available to the public.

    Polished Black - Fire (Pitch) LIVESTOCK

    There will be an unknown number of pairs manufactured in very low quantity that were never sold to the public, many of which would have been given to sports personnel.
