Felt like it was up longer than that, but I still passed initially. Then I had a change of heart and luckily someone is willing to help out.

I think it hit Oakley.com at midnight PST. I bought mine about 6am PST and it was available for several hours after that before it was sold out (at least the first sell out before it came back online a few more times).

The two new colour ways coming out for R3:

I was hoping they would match the Ferrari colour way on the Ruby pair, minus the lens and badging.

Can't wait! Thanks Oak.

Any idea if they'll be limited?

Limited to 10k. I assume that is in total. So I think 5k each rather than 10k each.

Correct 10k total world wide. Not sure iits an even split though.

RE Ferriari I think that license got switched form Oakley to Ray-Ban.

Documenting the differences between the SF16-C vs. the Carbon Prime to the end of 2017:

1) CF-injected O Matter - The SF16-C has both upper and lower potions of the orbital made of CF-injected O Matter, whereas only the top portion on the CP is made of it (the bottom half is regular O Matter).

2) Nosebombs - The CP has black Unobtainium nosebombs while the SF16-C has red nosebombs (or frosted clear in the case of the athlete prototype).

3) Lens etching - The CP's left lens is etched with "Prizm" or the MotoGP logo while SF16-C has the Scuderia Ferrari logo.

4) Earstem badging - The SF16-C has the Scuderia Ferrari badging on both earstems (or blacked out badging on the athlete prototype) while the CP has no badging.

5) Piston colour - The SF16-C comes with either silver or black pistons while the CP has only silver pistons (for now).

6) Earsock - The SF16-C has red earsocks while CP has black.

7) Icons - The SF16-C has Ferrari red icons on the earstem (black on the athlete prototype) while the CP has white, silver or red.

8) Nosepiece - The metal nose piece mount that holds the nose bombs is a slightly different shape at the portion that connects to the orbital.

9) Earstem laser etching - Each are etched with their respective model name and number. Some SF16-Cs will not have any etchings in the inside of the earstems.

10) Screws - The CP screws will be black while the SF16-C might be silver on some (especially at the hinges).

11) Serial number - Most, but not all, of the SF16-C have a serial number engraved on the underside of the CF-injected O Matter near the left hinge (in the form of SS123). The all-black SF16-C prototype and Carbon Primes do not have serial numbers.

Let me know if you see any other differences.

I wonder why only the top portion of the CP is CF-injected? Cost?

I could only guess they wanted to keep it sub-$600 MSRP.

Thanks, I would have assumed it was only just the color and branding which would have differed.
