Six months after they first broke cover at the Vuelta a España, Oakley has officially announced the launch of its Kato sunglasses. 

Claimed to be the result of decades of product research and development, the Kato is designed with a uniquely shaped lens, which follows the contours of the face much more closely than traditional sunglasses, including a bridge which is moulded around the profile of a rider's nose. 

The Kato sunglasses will retail at £231.00, and are available to buy at Oakley today
