Dita - Endurance 79
This turbocharged aviator pays homage to the breathtaking feats of sport car endurance racers, who rose to international prominence in the 1970s by participating in grueling competitions that can last up to 24 hours. Endurance 79’s muscular titanium exoskeleton and temples resemble the pristine hardware of performance racing vehicles, while its etched acetate face recalls the sleek, reflective eyewear made iconic by champions of this daredevil sport.
Though it cuts an imposing figure, Endurance 79 delivers with an array of carefully considered design features—most notably the clever use of monofilament in the frame’s construction. Monofilament traditionally serves a single purpose: to hold lenses in place. Endurance 79 employs an innovative construction method that uses monofilament to hold three of the frame’s critical components in place: the molded plastic brow, metal rim, and the lens—a technique that’s noteworthy for a frame of retro descent. Finishing details, including a mechanical fastener behind the brow held together by a custom titanium crossbar, nod to the bold minimalism of 70s design and architecture in a way that captures the unbridled thrill of the open road.
