In 1975, a technology company looked at a product and saw an opportunity. The result was an innovation, a motocross handgrip with a unique orbicular design. The company was Oakley. It began a legacy of seeking out problems and solving them in ways that redefine product categories. This discipline requires an unyielding drive to defy convention and invent a better solution. It is based on three fundamentals: Find opportunity. Solve with technology. Wrap in art.
Oakley Government Sales has been selling Oakley to the military for over 20 years. Over time, Oakley's military line has transformed from a few models to a highly specialized division within Oakley.
Today that same passion generates product prototypes in SLA liquid laser tanks. It sculpts in the virtual world of CAD/CAM engineering and renders innovations with 3-D digital mastering. New generations of products are constantly developed at Oakley’s California research and production facility.
Oakley's partnership with the U.S. Armed Forces began in the 1980's. The alliance was formed to develop new technologies that improve the safety, performance and comfort of our soldiers. This initiative in research and development continues to produce combat ready equipment for those whose lives depend on their gear. From the billions spent each year on defense, these are just a few of the dividends.
The SI Line (Standard Issue), is designed exclusively for government customers. It is not available in retail stores. The Government Sales office is a division of Oakley's main office in Foothill Ranch, California
