THE MATERIAL A thermoplastic polyamide, this Grilamid TR90 was developed exclusively for Aspex. It's 20% lighter than traditional plastics and incredibly durable and flexible. Like other Aspex products, you can bend and twist it without breaking it. Grilamid TR90 is easy to color, which provides intriguing color possibilities. UV blocking means colors won't fade and temperature resistance means it won't lose fitting characteristics. Gilamid TR90 is hypo-allergenic so there's no need to worry about skin reactions.
EasyClip Style No. EC217
Manhattan Design Studio Style No. S3255
Takumi Style No. T9946
Aspex introduced Grilamid TR90 into all three of its frame lines: EasyClip®, Manhattan® Design Studio, and Takumi® Magnetic Eyewear. That means you’ll find TR90 frames with sun clips as well as some without clips offered for women and men in various styles and sizes. Aspex produces both matte and translucent TR90 finishes with a rainbow of colors.
A CLOSER LOOK The metal-front EasyClip Style No. 217 features Grilamid TR90 on its temples where there are swirling lines upon lines and color upon color. It’s available in satin brown, satin dark pinkish red, and satin plum.
Manhattan Design Studio Style No. S3255 is a stylish men’s semi-rimless with a thicker metal side that leads to a temple with what looks like a flying checkered flag as it works its way down the line. This style is available in satin brown, satin dark gray, and satin royal blue.
Takumi Style No. T9946 (semi-rimless) and its brother, Style No. T9945 (full-rimmed), have four slits cut into the sides of the temples at varying lengths for a very sophisticated look.
All frames come with matching polarized magnetic clips.
