Just picked up both pairs at a great price. How many Anti freeze radars did they make?
How much? And pics!
Don't quote me on this but I believe they made a total of 3,000. Again I'm not 100% sure but I believe I have heard that.
I heard 1500 path. 3000 xl.

Limited Edition RADAR PATH Sunglasses
They say it’s the color of the word “go” and it screams of freedom, nature and endurance. We don’t know about all that touchy-feely crap. We just think the color is sick, and you can only get it with these Oakley RADARS designed for cycling. The green hue is a rarity called Anti-freeze made only for this Limited Edition frame and we matched it with JADE IRIDIUM® lenses, a little something we’ve been cooking up in the lab for years.
True performance eyewear goes back to the days when athletes had zero choices and a company called Oakley began addressing their needs. We grew up supporting cross-country cycling and downhill racing. We were there at the birth of Free ride and we’ve been part of the Big Tour and Classic segments for decades. Radar eyewear is now essential equipment for anything with two wheels and no limits, and this is one of the first designs to come with Jade Iridium lens coating for truer color recognition, especially in bright sun. (It doesn’t make the world look green; it just makes the other riders green with envy). Put it all together and you’ve got unbeatable performance and rare style.
Get this Limited Edition cycling combo now because once it’s gone, it’s gone for good.
It's now an annual tradition for Oakley: As the Tour de France rolls around they release a small run of, um, garish-color shades for their sponsored riders. In 2007 it was the Neon Yellow "Retina Burn". In 2008 it was the "Atomic Orange." And now for 2009 they've unveiled "Anti Freeze" Green. Why Green? It's because Oakley has a full house of contenders for the maillot vert -- the coveted Green Jersey worn by the top sprinter in Le Tour. Count on seeing Mark Cavendish and Edvald Boassen-Hagen of Team Columbia, Heinrich Hausler of the Cervélo Test Team, and an on-the-mend Robbie McEwen of Team Katusha all in the Radar Anti Freeze.
Another tradition with Oakley's Tour de France shades is that they're tough to come by and that they don't last long. Oakley says they're only making 1,500 worldwide. Demand always outstrips our ability to track more down. So if you're keen on them you'd best not sleep on it.
The Anti Freeze is a standard set of Oakley Radars with two extra details of note: One is their translucent green frames. The other is their Jade Iridium lens that transmits 17% of available light, making them an ideal lens choice for medium-to-bright days. But even more important, perhaps, is the fact that the lens color is a shimmering Blue/Green that complements the electricity of the frame to perfection.
We sell the Radar Anti Freeze in the Path lens size only (this is the "small" size lens in the Radar family -- Pitch and Range are larger). We like the Path because it's large enough to protect your eyes from debris, while being small enough so it doesn't overheat the head and seal your eyes off from the world. The Radar has interchangeable lenses. Not only can you change tints, but sizes as well.
Like all Radar models, the lens is hydrophobic with a new oleophobic coating for better vision. Sweat won't streak your lens and muddy up your field of view. Rather these coatings cause moisture to run off the lens with no residue.
The frame is made from Oakley O-Matter. There is soft Unobtanium at the temple ends and the nose to better grip the face. Unobtanium is slightly hydrophilic, so it will grip better when wet and sweaty. The lens is made from Plutonite and has Oakley's famed High Definition Optics (HDO). The Radar comes with a zipper case that has room for a spare lens and a custom microfiber bag designed by Hans Mortiz, useful both a lens cleaning cloth and soft storage.
