Clear or Yellow.

Clear won't be any good during the day.

Although it may be gay, pink lenses work for me in sun and dark conditions.

If it helps, you can call them rose rather than pink. And yes, they are good for low light because they increase contrast.

Orange is typically the best for any kind of conditions you may face. Rose is generally better for foggy/overcast days. As far as I know any kind of chrome is only good for days with lots of light, which means garbage for night.

Oh goodness. This is the last time I'm posting this.

* Clear lenses are best for extremely stormy conditions or for riding at night
* Lemon (yellow) lenses are best for stormy conditions and overcast days. They increase contrast and brighten up the landscape
* Vermillon (pink) lenses increase contrast in most conditions. This lens with a silver mirror is ideal for most riding conditions
* Citrus (orange) lenses also increase contrast and are great for bright days. Choose an option with a mirror to get a darker lens for the brightest conditions
* Purple lenses are good in low-light conditions such as overcast and snowy days, because they bring out shadows and contours in flat light
* Modulator or photochromic lenses change from a light pink/orange to a dark pink/orange depending upon the light conditions. They are a very light, high-contrast color for stormy weather and dark enough for the brightest days
* Polarized goggle lenses can cut the glare that reflects from snow or ice

Enjoy. Oh, and pink goggles are VERY good lenses for almost all riding condition. If you think they are "gay" then you're just another idiot who puts appearance or trivial things in front of common sense. Enjoy your jet black mirrored lenses at night. You'll crash into a tree and die, but you'll look like a real champ when they haul your frozen corpse off the mountain next morning. "My God, he looks like a badass!" they'll say as they throw you in the meat wagon.

I was just making a joke, I find pink is great which is why I said so. I have the biggest, pinkest goggles on the mountain.
