A few people were asking about this so I figured I would throw up a few pictures of it as requested. It is the last Carbon Fiber C-Six ever made and was supposed to stay in Oakley's possession so they would have it in their museum. So much for that idea...

No 1 is apparently the one that they did keep in their museum. Would definitely be an awesome piece to add to any collection. Love the C-Six. I wear my aluminum regularly...

To be exact... The weight of the aluminum C-Six is exactly 2.00 oz. The weight of the carbon fiber C-Six is exactly 1.600 oz. So to be completely honest there isn't much of a weight difference. You can feel a very slight difference but not enough to say wow that's a huge difference.

That work for ya?

No it's not carbon fiber... sadly. I believe it is the same material that the pit boss's have on the frames. not 100% sure though. I absolutely love my aluminum c-six. It fits great and with the beta titanium core on the stem it makes for a nice sort of spring hinge against itself. They stay really cool too because of the aluminum frame so its really nice. They don't seem to fit anyone with a wider face that I have seen at least. All in all I think they are an amazing glass look, fit, feel and as a collectible...


As for #250 and where it is... It will be in my possession for a while. It is in a locked safe inside my stores vault that no one except me and the owner have a key to. It's a cool feeling though to have them in hand and to have tried them on...
