FAQ’S

The Kingpin 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.

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. Also, the snow version doesn’t come with a low-light lens included, which the Kingpin Trail version does.

Happiness

I am super happy with the product and the service. I enjoyed the attention to detail with the customer sales journey - everything from the packaging to the personalized follow up email. The Kingpin Trail glasses are great and I found the low light lens useful for wooded areas.

Awesome product with equally awesome customer service

Honestly these glasses are the real deal, not a millimetre of movement when on the trails and they look absolutely stunning. Fantastic quality overall and great customisable options.
Customer service was great in providing me with the option for a narrower nose piece to fit my face.
Couldn’t recommend enough, I might even have to buy more!

Brilliant

Thought these glasses were pricy and never spent on proper trail glasses, but have to admit these are brilliant. Lenses are spot on and work even in low light. Comfy after hours of wearing too. Everything I want. Look sick too 🤜
