Awesome Clarity meets wild style

How the Lens Tech Works

Using technology developed by one of the world’s top lens manufacturers, the Alleycat features lenses from ZEISS’s Performance lens range. Developed with trail and road riding clarity in mind the performance lens range filters light to give you the optimum view of the environment ahead.

If you’re a MTB or gravel rider, you’ll want to check out our trail lenses. These are perfect for when you’re riding trees, tracks, or around vegetation, where the environment has a predominance of green and orange light that can overwhelm the eye. The trail lens filter reduces green and orange light, giving you greater clarity of the environment, improved depth perception and view of the trail like no other lens can offer.

If road is your vice, you’ll want to check out our road lenses (no surprises there!). In these environments there is a lot of neutral light reflected from the tarmac and a predominance of blue light from artificial lights that can overwhelm the eye. Our road lens filters out some of the blue light, whilst providing an equal distribution of neutral light, improving the road definition, your ability to see potential hazards and levelling up your colour balance perception.

FAQ’S

Yes, you are buying a pair of Alleycat sunglasses including an optical clip + prescription from Zeiss

After you complete your purchase, you will receive an email from Melon with a no-hassle form, where you can add your prescription information. As soon as you complete the form, our team will be automatically notified and your prescription information will be submitted to Zeiss for production of your lenses.

Absolutely! If you’d prefer to do things with your regular optician rather than have Zeiss fit your lenses, you can buy the Alleycat optical clip only here and buy a pair of Alleycat sunglasses separately here

Whilst we can provide a refund or exchange for your Alleycat sunglasses if for instance if they do not fit you well, we are unable to offer returns for the prescription optical clip itself as the prescription is custom made for you

At this time we are able to offer prescriptions from +6 to -6

Current lead times are around 7-10 working days after you have submitted your prescription information to us.

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

Le classement des lentilles Alleycat est le suivant :

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.

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.
