Still not going to get a pair for $2,300 though.

Sepp has been wearing these at the Vuelta.

Ok thanks Andrew! I was wondering if that was the case but wasn't sure.

Random question... do new Kato's still have the Factory Pilot etching on the inside of the lens or did only the first batch have them? I recently got a pair of sapphire from a reputable store and just happened to notice that they don't have the etching on the inside of the lens. I've compared them to my 2 other Kato's and I can't find any evidence that they are fake but it made me wonder if somehow they were sent some fake ones.

If Oakley is still etching the inside of the lens then I want to send these back and get a legit pair!

Geesh... that's terrible! How can they make a mistake like that?!?!

one more...

These are the first web images of the updated earstem/lens attachment that I've seen.

Would you return glasses with a lens imperfections like this? - jhuff79

No cause they are sold out and you won't be able to get a replacement.

I like the black/gold better.

Thanks MicahS and O_taj1242 for the pics! This new design/update isn't reflected in any of the pics of the Kato on Oakley's site.

Curious to know if the glasses fundamentally look the same as the original ones? Also, wonder how the lens snaps into the arms?

From what I heard/read there were 5000 of each color made of the Sub Zeros. Since the non-frosted planet X was never in any of the promotional pics do you think it is a mistake on Oakley's part that they got out?
If you think it's a mistake which do you think is rarer, the frosted or non-frosted?

If you don't think it's a mistake do you think there are 5000 frosted and 5000 non-frosted out in the wild?

Just curious as to people's thoughts...

This kind of crap never happened when Jannard was running the show.

I'm not 100% sure I want to keep these non-frosted, so if anyone receives frosted in the US and wants to possibly trade let me know.

My ETA is tomorrow, so I'll see what ends up coming. - Dann

I'll be curious to see what you end up getting...

My Planet X / Prizm Road just arrived, ordered directly from Oakley in the USA and they aren't frosted! Kind of pissed and they had this smudge on them but thankfully it wiped off.

I just ordered Plant X/Prizm Road!
Jan 27, 2022 1:24 PM
It seems like they've raised the price on quite a few styles.

One question, Are two different tone colors for the 24k?? I bought one pair and was very very gold, but they have a problem, and changed it for other pair, and are more dark.
- Galvez1978

Do you happen to have pics of both of them? I'd love to see the difference...

It's not cool to blame it on high temperatures, they have to know what temps products will experience throughout the shipping process and even what the user may put their products through. It's not like this is the first time Oakley has shipped a pair of glasses ever. Just down to poor design/adhesive material choice and I see it being a larger problem in the future. They should definitely warranty anyone's glasses that this happens to.

They are a little big for my face (need a KATO S version) but oh well. I love them regardless. :)

Has anyone heard if there will be a Kato S?

Finally got to test out my KATO's!

Apr 27, 2021 4:35 AM
That is definitely a little worrying... I hope that doesn't happen to my pair. I think it would be cool if they used 2 Torx screws to secure the arms to the lens like a fashion Kato with metal arms too. It would be much stronger and more durable.
Apr 20, 2021 9:24 PM
Does anyone have an idea as to why my box is different than others? Curious as to why it doesn't have the gold Factory Pilot writing on it.
Apr 17, 2021 3:06 PM
Has it been confirmed that only the first 2000 pairs of Kato's have the Factory Pilot etching on the inside of the lens? If that's true I'm guessing that will make them more "collectible?"
