Oakley Flight Deck XM was released in 2015. The abbreviation XM means Extra Medium - little bigger than medium size but smaller than oversized Flight Deck. They are also fully compatible with other helmets, such as Bolle, Giro, Anon, K2 or Smith. Oakley Flight Deck XM has an anti-fog coating on the inside of the lens preventing from fogging too. Unlike Oakley Flight Deck, these are mostly designed for women, but it is possible to wear them by men with smaller heads and faces.

I always wanted to experience as many places, people, cultures and tastes as I can possibly fit into my lifespan. Ever since I founded eyerim, it is becoming increasingly difficult, so instead I read a lot. Recently I climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro and already set my eyes onto conquering Aconcagua. With eyerim I want to climb even greater heights.
