Juliets and the 'bridge wobble'

Some buyers of these iconic Oakley frames report issues with the bridge piece, which seemed to wobble instead of flex. The problem centres around the flex coupler and the rubber bush inserts, which can perish over time. Many owners failed to spot the problem until long after the warranty expired, which led to them persisting with 'wobbly' Juliets or paying for expensive repairs.
Oakley Juliet frames are manufactured individually, so every structure is different, even though they look the same. Instead of the loose, wobbly feel that can afflict Juliets over time, the nose bridge will once again be stable but flexible.

Fixing the Juliet bridge yourself

Oakley Juliets are precision-engineered products. There are reports on the internet of Juliet owners trying to fix a wobbly bridge themselves, with some even chopping up rubber fan belts to wedge into gaps in the X bridge. The most significant problem in repairing X Metal frames in this way is that they lose their elastic properties and, although they may not wobble anymore, they sit rigidly on the face and are far less comfortable to wear. DIY repairs on Oakley sunglasses are not something we would recommend. Another reason not to tackle repairs yourself is the subtle sizing difference between different years and models. It can make the correct fit and pin alignment a challenging task.

Juliet repairs for the experts

Oakley Juliet frames are difficult to take apart and reassemble. The pins need a clear path of travel for proper alignment, and they must fit snugly into the bridge cavity to provide the excellent shock absorption that the Oakley flex coupler system offers. AlphaOmega can carry out a complete nose bridge rebuild and repair on the Oakley X Metal frame, including disassembling, cleaning, and installing pins, flex couplers and orbital gaskets for all Oakley X Metal Juliet, XX, Penny and X-Squared sunglasses frames. Your Oakley Juliets will also get an ultrasonic clean that thorough check to ensure your restored collectors' frames are as good as new.

Safe, reliable and guaranteed

Using specially designed tools and experienced staff, AlphaOmega can offer eyewear repairs in our workshops that are not just safe but are guaranteed not to damage or permanently alter your Oakley sunglasses frame. X Metal Juliet sunglasses are one of Oakley's best-selling models with a 25-piece metal frame that has an unbelievable strength-to-weight ratio and is sculpted to fit the face thanks to their flexible frame temple shocks, the interchangeable nose bombs, the contoured lens orbitals and other Oakley innovations.
