Sunglasses


How we envision the Future

Designed to be shockproof, the hinges were the focus of a year-long development process. Multiple tests, 3D printing, a touch of gumption and a lot of perseverance... today our groundbreaking hinge is light, steady and long-lasting.

Lenses

Polyamide by Carl Zeiss AG

Made of a transparent polyamide that is ultra-light but offers great impact resistance. The pureness of the material gives high optical quality, while still filtering the entire range of UV rays. Scratch-resistant, oleophobic and hydrophobic treatments seal the deal!

Hinge

High quality shielded magnets

A unique patent pending system allows the temple bars to stay in position and safely detach when put under extreme stress conditions. These specially chosen magnets are shielded to prevent any magnetic fields from interfering.

Frame

Durable eco-friendly material

A polyamide that is composed of 58% renewable resources, and is produced using castor plants and bio-mass energy. It offers high fatigue strength, chemical resistance, but also lightness. The frame was designed and is entirely built in Italy.

Hi, it's Lucio and Francesco here.
We were tired of fragile sunglasses with cheap or low-quality features and we decided to tackle the problem from the source.
And so, Francis Pike found its calling: re-think the modern sunglasses.

One night, our friend’s glasses broke at the hinge. His attempts to fix them were short-lived and, not to mention, very frustrating because they weren’t cheap. We couldn’t stop thinking about it and, over the coming days, we started brainstorming to help him out. That’s when we realized that he was not the only one; it has happened to us, family members, as well as other friends: it was time to address this issue once and for all!

Hinges loosen up, temple bars bend and frames break too easily, too often. Even more expensive and resistant frames have this same weakness: the hinge. And that’s what we focused on.

Our objective is to offer a durable pair of sunglasses, excellent in every aspect. No compromises.
