About Oakley Blade Boardshorts in Black

World Champion Tour surfers are now discovering the performance and recovery benefits of compression technology. We set out to maximize that innovation with an ultra-premium design, and the goal was to create the best performance board short on the planet. The result is Oakley BLADE™. Even if you don’t compete in the ASP World Tour, you can still experience the power, endurance and balance that world-class wave riders rely on in competition, and get it all with signature Oakley style.

Oakley BLADE is engineered with an inner compression short that improves muscle awareness and focus. Those are crucial issues when your sport demands perfect balance, controlled movement and precise positioning, and this board short brings the best of all three. With critical messages from your muscles getting through to your brain, you’ll have a better chance of staying on the board when you’re pushing beyond your limits.

The compression short of Oakley BLADE has even more benefits. It increases muscle power for stronger moves, helping you get the most out of the wave. During the ride, it reduces micro vibrations that can damage your muscle fibers. It also enhances blood flow to feed muscles with vital oxygen while taking away lactic acid, a byproduct of exercise. That way, there’s less chance of cramping and faster recovery after the session is finished. You’ll have more power with less fatigue, and every sinew will stay primed.

All that unbeatable technology comes in a durable saltwater-ready design of O Stretch ripstop fabric, a resilient material that stretches to over 120% and returns to its original shape. O Stretch absolutely eliminates chafing, and it frees movement for superior agility and comfort. We even welded the seams for a streamlined fit that would make an aquatic mammal jealous. On top of that, we utilized a Teflon® treatment that repels water so you won’t be carrying added weight from the wet stuff. If you’re ready to get serious about the sport, get the ultimate in performance. Oakley BLADE is a state-of-the-art board short that leaves ordinary designs in its wake.
