Brand new, out of the box, Lightec Alpha Sun is the first-ever sun collection from Morel in the Lightec line.
MADE IN THE SHADE
The Alpha Sun collection offers six models with gloss or matte galvanized finishes. The collection’s gray and green category 3 polarized lenses are made of nylon and all the frames are manufactured from 100% stainless steel. This makes them light and flexible, tough and corrosion-resistant. In keeping with Lightec’s advanced technology design philosophy, the frames are 100% weld- and screw-free.

SQUARES AND AVIATORS
For a clean, consistent look, the temples of all the frames have the same design while the eyewire shapes vary from model to model. Square Style No. 7175L has a thick single bridge while Style No. 7174Lis a sleek aviator with a slim curved double bridge. Style No. 7173L has a square shape with a thin double bridge; Style No. 7172L is another aviator but with a thick single bridge. Style No. 7171L uses a square metal shape with a thick single bridge with sharper, squarer corners while Style No. 7170L is a

modified square with angular corners and a medium-size single bridge.
TEMPLES AND HINGES
All the temples are medium thick and taper to a sleek, curved end. The tips feature injected gray or black rubber inserted into the temple core with the word “polarized” hollow-molded on the inside of the right tip and “registered design” on the left tip.
As with the entire Lightec line, the sun collection features a patented springless and screwless “Alpha Hinge” that allows the temple to be removed by pushing down on the endpiece to release a metal loop attached to the temple which then lets the

eyecare practitioner lift the eyewire away from the temple.
With all its advanced features, the new Alpha Sun collection is just in time for the spring season.
