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.

The Alleycat has easily interchangeable lenses. 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.

Alleycats - Awesome Eye Gear

I recently purchased a set of Alleycats and I am very pressed by the fit and comfort of them whilst on the trails. I took the option of the photocromic lenses which react to the light and were brilliant throughout. A piece of eyewear you will buy, use and never be without again. Superb

Stoke Restored

After having to hit the brakes and come sliding to a stop to wipe that pesky Stoke killing piece of mud from my eye for the millionth time I finally took the plunge on some riding glasses - specifically the Alleycats. The website and customisation process is intuitive, easy to use and the range of choice is killer. After finalizing my choice I clicked the order and waited. A few days later they came, neatly packaged in a solid case, spare lens and bag. The first thing you notice, apart from the killer looks is the quality and feel of all the components, these things are light, strong and incredibly well put together.

Out on the trails the alleycats are your go to essentials, they sit under my Troy Lee A3 and I can even wear my earshots and they don’t interfere. You simply forget they are there until that moment where the puddle tries to kill your run and dampen your Stoke - no more dampened Stoke or eye infections, these things rock.

best riding glasses I've owned

I'm super happy with my Alleycats. I got the photochomatic and low-light lenses. The low light lens is great, but to be honest, the photochromatic is so good that the low-light lens is unnecessary. I can see how there might be clearance issues with some helmets (particularly fullface) but these work great with my current helmets, so no complaints (giro manifest, fox proframe RS and leatt enduro).

Best of the Best

I’ve had a few pairs of glasses 🤓 over the years but after purchasing my Alleycats I wouldn’t use anything else!!! They fit absolutely perfectly and they are probably the most comfortable shades I’ve ever owned… A+ from me and looking forward the the season ahead 🚴‍♂️🚴‍♂️🚴‍♂️
