Are titanium eye wear frames the lightest ?

At Evershine Optical, we often get people asking for eyewear made of titanium materials. When we asked them why they wanted titanium frames, the most common reasons given are it’s light weight and it’s strong and won’t break easily. This is far from the truth as we have seen many people come in with broken titanium frames.

When we show them a pair of ic! berlin eyewear which is already very light in weight, most weighing less than 20g, they ask what material is it. When we tell them it’s made of stainless steel, they immediately get the impression that it’s heavier than titanium frames.  ic! berlin frames “are made of very flexible 0.5 mm thick stainless steel”
