To boldly go... The Riker represents the Next Generation of wire frame technology. These frames feature an anodized stainless steel frame, layered wooden front section, adjustable ear and nose pieces, polarized lenses, and of course our integrated spring hinges.
Early on, we began a search to find the best materials to use for each part of our frames. As a result we chose to marry our designs with world-famous, Italian acetate from Mazzucchelli.
Acetate is known for its strength, durability, and lightweight characteristic. Unlike plastic, acetate is derived from organic elements, free of petroleum, and hypoallergenic.
Johnny Fly has always been known for our high quality, polarized lenses. But, we are taking it a step further. As of now, Johnny Fly frames will now feature the latest in sunglass lens technology: Enter Nylon…
Nylon lenses are light, flexible, resistant, BPA Free, and guarantee 70% better optical quality than what you see from most lenses on the market. Not only that, but nylon lenses sensibly reduces the impact of production compared to other lenses which in return, reduces our carbon footprint.
This is one of our favorite features in our eyewear, and makes our frames the one of the most comfortable on the market.
This technology allows for your frame to hug you comfortably, without squeezing too tightly, or loosing shape after wearing them up on your head. Flex your glasses however you need and watch them take back to their original perfect fit.
