High Quality Sunglasses!

I was super excited to get a pair of the kingpins trail knowing the great reviews, high quality and passion invested in this product. I was also concerned about the fit, style considering very few all frames fit my weird head/mtb helmet combo. I’m glad I grabbed a pair. The look is amazing and the clarity, quality of the lenses is superb. I gotta admit they feel a little tight but as soon as I start riding I really forget about that, so it’s not a big issue. I’d say change the design of the arm temple and maybe the end shouldnt point outward.

Kingpin Trail Rx

The Kingpin Trail w/ Optical Clip with Rx lens are legit. I’ve used Rx inserts in googles for years and The Kingpin is the best alternative. When not wearing the googles it left me without vision correction. I’m able to wear the Kingpins even when climbing with a DH helmet. Absolute game changer. They stay put, are very comfortable and fogging is minimal. If you need vision correction these are a great option. I’ll be wearing these way more often than my old google setup.

Melon optics are an awesome Brand what I love about them is their independent style seamlessly coupled with technical excellence - they don’t fog, they stay planted even when shredding the trails, they somehow manage to offer the perfect level of protection no matter the changing light conditions. Blown away 👍 🍉 👌

Kingpin trail

Hi Melon optics, I purchased a set of kingpins to take to the Alps. I used them on the Trans Savoie 50/50, and they were amazing!! When everyone else had Goggles which steamed up my glasses did not and even with very dry dusty trails no dust got into my eyes. Love them and would recommend to anyone👍

The Stoke is high!

They fit my face and poc helmet well. Feel super light on my nose. Have recently purchased an extra lense for the 1 or 2 days of sun in Scotland haha. The Photochromic lense works great! People actually notice them getting darker at times.....mind blower!
Thanks to the melon team!
