  • The problem with training alone is that we're in a vacuum.

  • And you think that you've got to train harder, you've got to train faster.

  • And that's not really what training's about.

  • When an athlete hits the wall,

  • it's a mixture between a physical and a mental block

  • that they've come upon.

  • Athletes need guidance to figure out how to get past those blocks.

  • They need a voice. A coach.

  • What's my pace?

  • It's 7 minutes 32 seconds per mile.

  • Radar Pace isn't a pair of sunglasses, it's actually a coach.

  • It's a voice in your head that's watching you and guiding you.

  • The biggest benefit of Radar Pace is that accountability,

  • the coach being there with you.

  • The early conceptual part of it was really challenging,

  • because of the packaging of all the elements.

  • How do you make it look like we didn't do anything?

  • We can call it an Intel collaboration, but really Intel challenged us.

  • Oakley comes at their products from a design-first perspective.

  • So we had to invent completely new technologies,

  • we had to invent new manufacturing techniques.

  • We put 50lbs of tech in a 56-gram frame.

  • When you put it on, you literally don't know that there's technology on your head.

  • It's a piece of invisible technology.

  • So that's really when the art hits the science.

  • We've been going through this thing for the last two years,

  • rounds and rounds of tests, we've dunked them in water,

  • we've actually dropped them from a couple of metres

  • over and over and over again, and tightened the entire design up.

  • Okay, Radar, what's my stride rate?

  • Your stride rate is 88.

  • Intel Real Speech lets you have conversations.

  • You're just talking to it, and it's talking back to you.

  • The real big magic is when Intel brought this coaching engine to us,

  • we saw what the athlete would use this for.

  • What Radar Pace does is it allows you to define that goal,

  • and then gives you the tools to actually do it.

  • It's this little coach on your shoulder that, in real time, tells you

  • what changes you have to make to your training at that moment,

  • so that you get the most out of your workout.

  • Start workout.

  • We're going for 20 miles.

  • Training an athlete is an art, it's a science.

  • It's a little bit of both.

  • And you just want to keep the wall advancing for them,

  • so that they keep reaching it and keep raising their ability.

  • Nice job, balancing your effort. Keep it up.

The problem with training alone is that we're in a vacuum.
