white2 540x253 Oakley x Shaun White | Holbrook
Since bringing back the Frogskin, the ridiculous demand for these once simple, almost throwaway glasses has gotten to the point where Oakley has had to figure out ways to satisfy their lifestyle consumer with a slightly more performance oriented frame. Last year it was the Jupiter, which although well-received for the most part, didn’t quite satisfy everyone. For round two, Oakley tapped brother wunderkind, Shaun and Jesse White to come up with the Holbrook, a newer school take on classic American frames. We like em. Get your preorder on right here. Full colorways after the jump. Via Lasse Anderson.

The other standout piece at the Oakley booth at Agenda were these transparent slime green Frogskins. Dubbed, “Anti Freeze,” there is a rumor that if you were tapped in the backcountry with a stalled out sled, you could melt these down for one last chance at getting the engine started. They will be sold out before they drop. Another look after the jump.

tac 540x264 Oakley Arctic Challenge Postponed
In some news that is sure to be disappointing to everyone from riders to environmentalists to the shred dogs counting on a “Blonde Avalanche” New Year’s party, it’s just been announced that the Oakley Arctic Challenge has been postponed until March. The format change to slopestyle didn’t help things but it seems most likely that humanity’s continued disregard for global warming is the true culprit. The official statement said this:

To protect the partners investments in TAC, the organization decided today
to postpone the event to March. Warmer temperatures than normal in both
November and December has made it impossible to produce enough snow.

Hopefully they are back in business for the new projected date of March 5.
