Oakley are one of the world's most iconic sports brands, primarily associated with their legendary sunglasses ranges, but also known for sports apparel such as clothing and bags. Founded in 1975 by James Jannard (with just $300 in his back pocket), the company was born - named after his dog Oakley Ann. Their first product was a set of motorcycles grips, manufactured using the trademarked Unobtanium material. Quickly expanding, Jannard increased Oakley's range to include number plates, elbow guards, gloves and then goggles. This was the first set of eyewear by the company, christened the O-Frame, and featuring a prominent Oakley logo on the strapping. Their first actual sunglasses were the 1984 sports related Factory Pilot Eyeshades, which were followed in 1985 by the casual Frogskin. To this day, Oakley supply many of the world's top cyclists, with their products aimed at the high-end of the market in both casual and sports eyewear.

This deal was originally found at Evans Cycles website, a bike shop which can trace it's roots back nearly 100 years! Evans Cycles is a London based chain of cycle shops, complete with an extensive online shop. Founded in 1921 by Frederick Evans in Kennington Road, SE London, the business traded for 30 years before being acquired by Joseph Smith in the 1950s, selling a range of cycles and toys. By the 1970s, focus was diverted solely to bicycles and cycling related equipment, and in the following years several franchised shops were opened. These were later brought back under the control of the main Evans company in the 1990s, at which point the famous Evans mail order catalogue was launched, complete with the traditional green and yellow colour scheme. With the growth of the internet, a website was launched in 1999 to help increase sales further, the latest incarnation of which can be found at www.evanscycles.com.
Since the early 2000s' the company has been steadily expanding, regularly opening new stores each year. By 2012, Evans employs 1100 members of staff, and currently has over 50 stores in the UK, making it one of the biggest cycle retailers in the country. In addition to selling a wide range of popular brands, Evans has also produced product ranges under "Pinnacle" and also currently has an exclusive deal with the "Hoy" brand.
