How the Lens Tech Works

Using technology developed by one of the world’s top lens manufacturers, the Kingpin 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

The Kingpin 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.

The Kingpin lens ratings are as follows:

Low-Light = S0 (86% VLT)
Amber = S2 (29% VLT)
Violet Chrome = S2 (25% VLT)
Red Chrome = S2 (28% VLT)
Green Chrome = S2 (22% 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 Kingpin 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 Kingpin 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.

King of the trails!

Prior to owning these glasses, I was just a mere peasant that showered only three to four times a year. I had no air in my tires, my chain was rusted, and it felt better to ride without a seat installed. Then one day in an outcry of desperation, my mom bought me these glasses in hopes that I would not hit my 45th birthday without kissing a girl. The moment I put them on, I could feel the electricity in the air striking down any mere mortal that was within a slight distance of my hands. Birds swooped down from the trees and landed on my shoulders, mushrooms grew under me to provide a plush throne to sit upon. Mammals and lizards alike flocked to bask in the presence of my newly reinvented persona. It had finally happened, I bursted out of my shell in a monimentous triumpheny war cry and screamed "I'm the king of the trail Bitches!" Now whenever I roll up to the trail head, the rocks move out of the way for me as I effortlessly shred as if I were on an ebike. One would ask me if I would recommend these to a friend and I would say that yes. Yes you should, now kneel before me you shuckeling swine and pay tribute to the king baby!

King pin glasses

These glasses are by far the best trail riding glasses I have used and I’m not just saying that because use are supporting me with melon products because I have used other brands in the past including Oakley and pit viper and these are by far the most comfortable, customisable and best all round glasses for a good price.

I love these glasses

I’ve got 2 pairs of Melon glasses. The Alleycats and now the Kingpins. And they are both just great.
I use the prescription insert on both and the vision is crystal clear. I’ve tried cheaper makes, but they were just awful. Melon’s are just brilliant.
Love love love these glasses 🤓
