Performance riding gigs that don’t break the bank and look rad as hell, yes please! Melon Optics have been making affordable performance eyewear for the snowsports world for almost 10 years now, in the last 4 years have been developing eyewear for mountain biking shenanigans.
The Alleycat is a bold pair of riding glasses. Using ZEISS lenses is proof that Melon is striving for high quality. Zeiss lenses are shatterproof, trail-specific and in the Alleycat interchangeable meaning there's a lens for every condition, come rain or shine (or more rain). The trail performance lenses from ZEISS are developed to give you the best clarity and optimise your view of the trail, green and orange light is reduced to improve depth perception and give you a view of the trail like no other lens can offer.
The Alleycat frame is built from a super flex, super tough TR90 with rubberised nose piece and arms. Each pair of Alleycats comes with a low light lens and microfibre bag, all packed into a hard carry case.
