Dita Rikton Type 402

Dita's got a new beast of a frame called the Rikton Type 402, a frame that features a stacked flat-base lens system that contains two lenses. They've done this to add a hit of color to a photochromic lens, which typically isn't available with a color tint. They've achieved this by placing an exterior photochromic lens over a color tinted lens with a titanium spacer to avoid any friction, dust, or scratching. The frame itself is made out of lightweight titanium, right down to the nose pads.
