Local Supply FAQs: Lightweight Frames

By Alexander Wu-Kim | LS News Product News | 17 Jun 2018

Anyone whose picked up or worn one of our frames will know just how lightweight they are. But how do we do it? Here's Jade to tell you a little more about it.

Our frames are made out of Skylon, which is as clever as Skynet, but unlike the fictional neural net-based conscious group mind and artificial general intelligence villain from Terminator, it won’t kill you and your loved ones. Skylon is a specialized type of injectable nylon, which is (a) durable, (2) super lightweight, and (d) flexible.

It’s so flexible that it eliminates the need for a wire frame that adjusts to your face, making the overall frame lighter and more economical to produce.

During the design process we stripped back all unnecessary elements without sacrificing quality, and we pass those savings on to our customers. Let them know!
