Briot Attitude

Tackle any complex design

The Briot Attitude features a new technological concept which allows tracing of extreme wrap frames with ease. The Briot Attitude is one of the first edging systems to incorporate a true angled shelf bevel for fitting high base-curve frames.

Wavefront technology

  • The Briot Attitude combines the best of both worlds with parallax free centering and wavefront technology.
  • With the Shack Hartmann technology, the actual lens design is visible.
  • With this information, the best visual correction for the wearer can be taken into account during the centering and blocking process.
  • By selecting any area of the lens, the optical power and prism is shown taking away the mystery of even the most advanced digital custom lens designs.

Intelligent shape modification

  • When performing modifications to the shape, Briot Attitude shows the actual lens map in the background. This allows the user to see where the power channels will be with the new shape or size, and enhance the wearer’s visual comfort and lens performance.

Truescan: true high curve tracer

  • The Briot Attitude features a new technological concept which allows tracing of extreme wrap frames with ease.
  • Tracing is geared for speed while the mechanics allow a very soft touch on frames avoiding any type of deformation.

High curve finishing

  • To ensure a perfect fit for wrap frames, Briot Attitude offers a step bevel finishing.This feature is customizable on any area of the lens and can be combined with any bevel curve, including the mini bevel. This advantage allows for high quality results and facilitates the treatment of frames with thick nasal or temporal areas.

Real step bevel

  • Certain wrap frames can sometimes require a special step bevel on the lens edge to ensure proper fit and safety for the wearer. The Briot Attitude produces customized step bevels with ease ensuring the perfect fit with variable width and depth options.

Smart design technology 2.0

  • The Briot Attitude is capable of processing even the most complex shapes and custom designs with the enhanced
    Smart Design (SD) 2.0 Technology. Smart Design 2.0 allows for full finishing of the lens without removing it from the chamber, resulting in the final shape or design being perfectly made.
