Silhouette Urban Lite. Reduction to the max was the aim at the development of the Urban Lite frame. By pushing the limits of injection molding combined with a new integrated screwless snap hing it was possible to design the lightest and thinnest fullrim frame. Using high-tech SPX+ plastics for the front and titanium temples provides flexibility and stability where needed. The result is perfect wearing comfort and a light and translucent esthetics, highlighted by the use of color. The frame merges technical functionality and refinement, seen at the clever integration of the hinge, that becomes a formal part.
