Outline

Carbon fibre almost defies the laws of physics. The material is light as air yet very strong. It is used in Formula 1 racing cars, aircraft, luxury yachts - and now in the new FLEYE eyewear. Carbon fibre is lightweight and strong - but it cannot easily be adjusted. So in order to ensure a world-class comfort and perfect fit, flexible Japanese beta-titanium is used for temples and for the thin wire that loops across the nose bridge. The wire holds nose pads and can be adjusted to fit any. Colourful temples and wire serve as an eye-catching and sophisticated contrast to the dark carbon fibre.

Evaluation

This product is valued for its design combining light carbon fiber with titanium. The pattern of the frame, the color of the titanium temples and the form of the nose pads are designed to respectively have forms and colors suitable for the materials used. Furthermore, the combination and contrast is pleasant.
