Perhaps. Glad they're including ways to prevent people from passing off things as vintage. - Dann


Triangle: 3 sides
Pentagon 5 sides

35th anniversary?? Just a guess - M


Just confirming 10000% that the triangle and pentagon does stand for 35th Anniversary!

For the NFL fans, there are 3 other models that will be coming down the pipe for the Superbowl/after the Superbowl:
1) Matte black Holbrook for the AFC Champion. Limited to 200 pairs on Oakley.com (will have a tampoprint on right lens of Chiefs logo)
2) Matte black Holbrook for the NFC Champion. Limited to 200 pairs on Oakley.com (will have a tampoprint on right lens of 49ers logo)
3) Silver Gascan to celebrate the Superbowl champ (supposedly bringing back the padprint on the stem - one stating Super Bowl LIV and the other stating NFL 100).

As an aside, HNBL = Hannibal. At least that's what some of the SI reps are saying. I'd like to see that in writing from Oakley before believing it is official.

Yes, I haven’t seen it written as “Hannibal” yet, at least from Oakley proper. Please do share a link to it for our reference if you’ve seen it. I’ve seen it in the link below, but I’m looking for Oakley’s official writing of it:

Celeste / black arms / Prizm black
Red / black arms / Prizm black
White / neon yellow arms / Prizm black.

I think I'm missing something. The video didn't connect HNBL to mean Hannibal, or spell out Hannibal, or something else like "High ___ Ballistic Lens", or some other marketing jargon. I know in a different video posted afterwards, Eric used the words "Hannibal" verbally, but I'm looking for it in actual writing for "Hannibal" so that I can screen-shot it.

This is a similar situation to how when the XX X-metal came out, Oakley produced a PR release that specifically called it "Double X" so that people wouldn't confuse it with X-metal Twenty. I think I still have a screenshot of them specifying the naming convention for that; I'm looking for a screen shot of the naming convention for this.

Guys - I can easily do this custom vented lens on the Sutro with lens etching too! On any colour you like.

Yep, that video was also on IG the day after the HNBL reveal. I think that's where we universally all found out that HNBL translates to "Hannibal" rather than some acronym.

I think I'll have to wait for the eventual Product ID sheet or the official press release this Spring to see if they officially put "Hannibal" as the pronunciation down on paper.

That won't happen because Hannibal is trademarked/copyrighted that's why it's written the way it is. (or so I was told) So they can't spell it out in full.
