Francis Pike is designed by Lucio and Francesco who were tired of fragile sunglasses with cheap or low-quality features and they decided to tackle the problem from the source. 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 they focused on. their objective is to offer a durable pair of sunglasses, excellent in every aspect. To address the problematic issue of hinge, Francis Pike presented a unique patent system which 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.
