Changing the world of eyewear

Flexon’s secret to the success

Flexon, pioneers within the eyewear world, have been paving their way since 1988, crafting their glasses from technologically advanced memory metal and revolutionising the way that modern eyewear is built.

The metal alloy used by Flexon in their eyewear was actually destined for a very different path when, in 1961, US Naval Scientists creating a missile heat shield discovered that the alloy they were using automatically returned to its original shape, even after being hit by a hammer. It was from this discovery that Flexon saw a unique opportunity and, by making use of the alloy’s unique properties, began creating their signature, flexible eyewear.

Flexon’s secret to success

The Flexon glasses and sunglasses collection features a range of classic shapes, with choices for both masculine and feminine preferences. The collection is ideal for those who prioritise practicality and embrace all of life’s challenges with confidence!

Made from a titanium nickel alloy, Flexon glasses and sunglasses not only weigh a fraction of similarly designed frames, but they can also withstand most accidental, day-to-day mishaps (although they’re not indestructible!). Their incomparable technical features and superior build quality have been expertly designed to meet the demanding needs of those living the most active lifestyle.

The secret to the success of Flexon's frames is the material's amazing flexibility. The bridge on most styles can repeatedly twist up to 90 degrees without breaking. Likewise, wrap most Flexon temples around a finger and they will spring back into shape.
