Your Perfect Lens

Awesome Clarity meets serious style

Using technology developed by one of the world’s top lens manufacturers, the Alleycat features lenses from ZEISS’s Trail Performance lens range. Developed with riding clarity in mind the trail performance lens range filters light to give you the optimum view of the trail. By reducing green and orange light you get greater clarity of the environment as well as improved depth perception, meaning you get a view of the trail like no other lens can offer.

FAQ’S

The Alleycat has easily interchangeable lenses and comes with a Zeiss low light lens included. If you want to grab some extra lenses, you can do so here and if you need just an extra low light lens, you can grab it here. You can see how to change your Alleycat lens here

The Alleycat lens ratings are as follows:

Low-Light = S0 (86% VLT)
Amber = S2 (29% VLT)
Violet Chrome = S2 (25% VLT)
Red Chrome = S2 (28% VLT)
Silver Chrome = S3 (19% VLT)
Smoke = S3 (19% VLT)
Photochromic = S0 – S3 (85% – 18% VLT)

The higher the category (and lower the VLT %) the more light the lens blocks, so an S2 lens is often good for if you’re riding in varying light conditions, whilst an S3 lens will perform best if you’re mostly riding bright conditions. You can check out our in-depth video on the lenses further up this page or you can access it here.

Our photochromic lenses are not made by Zeiss, as Zeiss currently doesn’t make a photochromic lens in a shield option. However, they are from one of the worlds leading photochromic lens makers and the optical quality is also fantastic.

We offer a lightweight, low profile optical clip that connects to the Alleycat nose bridge. This can be purchased on its own or with prescription lenses from Zeiss included. You can check all of our prescription options here

The main difference is in the lens technology. The Alleycat trail lens optimises for orange/green environments whereas the snow lens filters out more blue light, as there is a predominance of this in snowy environments. As a result, you’ll get much better definition, contrast and depth perception when in the snow. Also, the snow version doesn’t come with a low-light lens included, which the Alleycat Trail version does.

Great quality lenses, but too big & uncomfortable behind the ears

I was so stoked for the arrival of these glasses when I ordered them. I live in Canada and there is no dealership where I could try them on. I've tried them for one long ride (3+ hours) and I sold them locally. They were uncomfortable for me behind the ears (too tight and the pressure became a sore spot the longer I wore them). The lenses are absolutely fantastic. Great quality and such good visibility. I purchased the red chrome and they are perfect for trail riding. The frame is too big for an average female face I believe and the glassed rattled in my helmet, very annoying.

I would purchase again if nose + ear pieces are adjustable, and if they make them in two sizes (large & medium).
