Frames

The majority of our range consists of two main material types:

Polycarbonate

It’s strong, light weight and depending on the frame design can also be slightly adjusted for fit, co-moulded with rubber compounds will provide a lightweight and extremely comfortable fit.

Nylon

No big secret to this material – bend it, stretch it, and twist it – it’s almost unbreakable. Depending on the level of humidity, nylon frames will also naturally absorb atmospheric moisture making them softer and more flexible.
