Smith Attack Max At Ray-Ban, their Aviator Blaze features “cutting-edge style and unbreakable spirit” to help redefine the brand's icon of icons. Smith IO In terms of how it is made, there are many types of rimless glasses, but the Attack frame provides enough structur- al integrity for Smith engineers to utilize it as the foundation of the glass. “With Attack, we engineered the lug area specifically to allow for fast ChromaPop lens swapping for varying light conditions with Smith MAG interchangeable temple technology,” he says. “Smith MAG technology uses two neodymium magnets that intuitive- ly slide on to the lug area with a locking mechanical engagement that can be done without getting fingerprints all over the lens.” The Blaze features a steel front and bold upper double bridge, with a pilot shape taking the innovative, rimless lens-over-frame construction of Blaze back to its origins. New flat gradient or G-15 lenses are featured on classic gold, silver and gunmetal, which take the classic style into a new dimension. “Completing the selection, electric mirror shades and a demi-gloss black version make sure modern statement style, mixed with a high-energy profile, shouts fun with attitude,” the company says. “A true original, the Aviator Blaze changes the game once again - for the first time ever in the Blaze series, this style is available with stunning gradient lenses.” Optical Prism | November 2017 21
