“It’s all about the lens” is our mantra here at Zoran. While other competitors may focus on color or style we focus on the lens. To provide perfect vision on all rides in all conditions the lens we use to manufacture Zoran Sunglasses is critical.
As cyclists our goals are simple. To develop a lens that defeated the sunglass challenges cyclist’s face: The lens had to:

To ensure the highest quality, we take a different approach in almost every aspect of sunglass production than our competitors.
Transitions®️ Signature®️ GEN 8 Photochromic Lenses
The best Photochromic lenses on the market:
Back-Side of Lens Moisture Control Assistance
An important feature designed into the frame is the frame’s ability to provide airflow over the nose bridge that flows over the back of the lens. This airflow enhances the hydrophobic coating on the lens itself and helps with moisture control on the back of the lens including the prevention of fogging in very humid conditions. The airflow also acts as a self-cleaning feature so there really is no need to wipe the lens during your ride.
Maximize Visual Area for Cyclist and Safety
The frame was designed to provide maximum forward and peripheral vision without obstructing any aspect of the cyclist’s vision regardless of their position on the bicycle. We designed the frame to sit above the cyclist’s eyes and still wrap around the rider’s face to provide maximum protection. This feature maximizes the rider’s peripheral vision and prevents any obstruction that might interfere with the rider’s vision when they turn or lower their head. We made the nose piece adjustable so the rider can adjust the height of the sunglasses on their nose. This feature is very helpful if the rider is in the drops or on the skis on a tri-bike.
The frame was designed with long hours in the saddle in mind, so it was designed to be very comfortable and light. The frame is designed to bend under pressure and contour your face comfortably. The extended and curved temple arms mentioned above ensure a contoured no pressure fit, eliminating pressure points. The soft nose piece does not dig into your skin and is extremely comfortable. Even though certain of our lenses may be a little heavier due to prescriptions the frame is light enough to compensate. We have only had positive reports concerning our prescription sunglasses. Our sunglasses are so comfortable, we have had reports of racers forgetting they had our sunglasses on, only to knock them off their head when they removed their helmet!
The frames are made of a thermoplastic material called Grilamid TR 90. The frames are very flexible and strong. The TR90 material is known for its anti-fading and color retention properties. We did not make our hinge or any connections out of a plastic material. We used a three-barrel metal hinge imbedded in the frame to provide maximum strength and durability. This type of hinge also allows for some adjustment. For example, if the frame stretches to a larger or wider head continuously the screw adjustment may have to be tightened over time.
The Type of Lenses We Use
All our sunglasses come with photochromic or light sensitive lenses. That means the lenses automatically darken or lighten depending upon time of day and light levels. This feature affords the cyclist a huge amount of flexibility and ease of use. Put them on and forget them any time of day or night.
The way we manufacture our lenses.
All our sunglasses are manufactured to individual order. The reason for this is we manufacture all our sunglasses to prescription eyeglass standards. We process your regular sunglass order exactly same way we process prescriptions. We start with an unaltered lens blank and shape the lens to order. In the case of regular sunglasses, we surface the lens to a zero power. With prescriptions, we surface the lens to the prescription order. All our sunglasses are then hand assembled and inspected.
The standards we apply to our lens production.
The same high-quality standards and precision manufacturing processes apply to all our sunglasses because we make them all to ophthalmic prescription standards.
Where we manufacture our sunglasses.
Our sunglasses are manufactured in an optical laboratory that also manufactures orders for ophthalmologists, optometrists and other eyecare professionals.
A focus on corrective lenses for visually impaired cyclists.
When you place your prescription order with Zoran it does not go to a 3rd party. As noted above, prescriptions are what we do. We just make your regular sunglasses to a zero prescription and the prescriptions to the eyecare professional’s order!

When you first try them on you are a little startled by how crisp and sharp you vision is. Then you walk outside into the sunshine. At first you think there is something wrong. These sunglasses cannot be working, because it is not darker outside, like with regular sunglasses. You take them off to look at them and are hit with the full force of the sunlight and start squinting and shielding your eyes.
Have you hung your sunglasses or on the back of your kit recently? Maybe because of:
Originally eyewear showed up in the peloton, not for protection from the sun but protection from the dirt, grit and bugs that resulted from riding on unpaved roads. In the early twentieth century, post-World War I military surplus flying goggles made from glass and leather seemed to provide the necessary protection.
How Zoran Lens Coatings Works
Our coatings are converted to a gaseous state and literally infused into the lens utilizing heat and pressure. Each coating has a very specific purpose and are applied in a very specific order to maximize effectiveness. We apply 14 different coatings to each lens. We call them coating “stacks.” We apply some coatings to both the front and back of the lens. Other coatings get applied to one side or the other depending upon the purpose of the coating.
We use this advanced lens coating technology to defeat all weather conditions–rain, sleet, heat, humidity, moisture, and sweat.
