    The temples on my Flacks go straight to rear like most Oakleys. I ride a gravel bike, endurance gravel road events, and the frames make contact with the side of my helmet. Due to the bumps in the road the helmet contact makes my glasses jump around a bit. If I could bend the temple pieces down slightly it would solve the problem. I asked my Oakley dealer and he couldn't think of a solution. Have tried other helmets and similar problem. I just need to bend the temple pieces down a bit. Any suggestions? Thanks.

    Welcome to the forum.

    Maybe try to heat them up and bend them slightly.

    are you trying to bend it down vertically?

    Yes, bend them downward. I read where heating these will have no effect.

    Heat and bend. I've never tried bending arms downwards vertically as that's the strongest axis by design. Maybe a pic of your flak and a doodle of how you want to bend would help visualise
