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.

Amazon famously started off as a book shop operated from a garage in Bellevue, Washington. Founded by Jeff Bezos in 1995, the company rapidly expanded it's product ranges, from books to CDs and DVDs to eventually include pretty much everything under the sun. This is highlighted in the recognisable logo, where the orange arrow points from "A" to "Z". The low pricing and fast delivery (if you use their popular Prime membership) results in Amazon being a popular retailer for cycling products, both from Amazon directly and the 3rd party sellers as well.
So what does this mean for me as a bargain hunting cyclist?! The good news is that Amazon regularly have ridiculous discounts on individual items. Whereas most retailers will discount a product equally in all sizes and colours, Amazon have the unusual trait of reducing a single size at 70-80% off, whereas the rest of the sizes will be at full retail price. If you're prepared to hunt for deals, then you can grab some amazing bargains - I've bought £160 cycling jackets for £25 - and once the item has been purchased, the price has immediately returned to the original RRP again. There doesn't seem to be a great deal of logic to what is reduced, it's not just certain sizes or ugly colours, but if you're prepared to put a bit of work in, you can save hundreds.
Please note: With designer or expensive goods, it is worth only buying products directly from Amazon or third party sellers with excellent feedback, to ensure that they are genuine models and not cheap copies.
