Traditional glasses suffer from a design fault in which the hinge loosens over time, resulting in the separation of the spectacle frame from the arms. As a result, the screws in the hinge need to be tightened from time to time. The Tapole series solves this problem as the laser-cut titanium alloy is bent to form a unique hinge structure that requires neither screws nor welded joints. The use of titanium alloy for the nose bridge and temple sections also ensures excellent adjustability and flexibility. The specially developed adjustable nose pads also help to provide comfortable, long-lasting wear. Finally, eyewear that stays where it's needed.
