Set aside for years, the world was first introduced to this memory metal material in 1988 when Flexon eyewear harnessed the power of its unique properties. With the creation of remarkably resistant and flexible frames, an optical revolution that changed the face of eyewear forever was born.

Feather light, flexible, and titanium strong, Flexon fits, feels and forgives like no other conventional metal frame on the market. Never underestimate the power of flexibility.
