THE FIRST TURNING POINT WAS IDENTIFYING A MATERIAL THAT WAS BOTH ULTRA-LIGHT AND RESISTANT, I.E. ABLE TO LITERALLY BEND TO ENSURE COMFORT FOR THE BIKER WITHOUT COMPROMISING ON PERFORMANCE.
301 STEEL AND BETA TITANIUM.
The next challenge was to find how to weld it. This is where Ergal came in: an aluminium alloy borrowed from the world of motor racing, Ergal teams light weight with impressive resistance, making it an ideal alternative to steel in certain types of components. It also allows for plenty of colour options using the anodizing technique.
But beta titanium and Ergal cannot be welded together, so we had to seek an alternative method, used in the leather industry: riveting. So thanks to a combination of technical assembly solutions and the initial tests with the anodizing of the Ergal, we produced the 900 series, the first pair of Emblema glasses. And the rest is history: the history of our brand.
