Meticulously engineered to harness the ever-changing properties of light, Rikton - Type 402 employs an innovative photochromic dual-lens construction for an unparalleled visual experience. The third in a triad of innovative concept frames for Spring 2018, Rikton - Type 402’s muscular style frame is the first to make use of a stacked flat-base lens system, consisting of an interior tinted lens and an exterior photochromic lens; as ultraviolet light conditions change, the interplay of color between the two creates a chameleon-like visual effect.
Whereas a standard single photochromic lens does not allow for a tinted lens experience, this lens system offers the best of both worlds: photochromic+color. Informed by adaptive reaction to light in the natural world, the Rikton - Type 402 is DITA’s first concept deploying two lenses into a single frame.
Achieving this feat required extraordinary precision at the design level: Rikton - Type 402’s titanium chassis contains slots for both lenses, as well as a small titanium spacer to resist friction, dust, and scratching; a tonal bridge bar containing the temples is then affixed over the top of the frame, securing its components in place. Exquisite details, from custom titanium nose pads to sculpted acetate temple tips, offer uncompromising comfort and style for the most discerning eyewear enthusiasts.

The Rikton Type-402. This is a new concept frame that is created with titanium multilayered intricate construction using twin lens technology.
The lenses are coated with additional layers of specialty coatings to further enhance both the optical and mechanical performance.
Due to the unique construction of Rikton Type-402 there are specific care and lens replacement instructions.
• To clean the exterior surfaces of the lenses, use only optical solution and a microfiber cloth
• Keep the frame dry and avoid submerging into liquids
• Use low pressure air to remove fine dust that could collect between the lenses over time
• Removal of lenses should only be performed at DITA authorized retailers
• Prescription lens can only be fitted in the place of the back lens, the front lenses are photochromic
• If the frame is fitted with prescription lenses, AR and Oleophobic coating is recommended
Before begining to remove the lens unit from the frame, prepare a thin piece of ribbon or tape.
Lift up the metal end piece to create a space under the middle nylor thread.
Slide the prepared piece of plastic ribbon or tape under the middle nylor thread.
Starting from the end piece, gently lift the middle nylor thread over the metal groove while sliding the plastic ribbon or tape towards the nasal. This will release the lens unit from the frame front. Repeat to release the opposit lens unit.
Slide the plastic ribbon or tape between the metal rim and under either nylor thread.
The lens will release when the nyor thread is lifted from the metal rim.
Repeat the same procedure for the opposite lens until all 4 lenses have been released.
