That's interesting that the high intensity yellow have a greater amount of light transmission than the clear.

Don't bother with the Oakley charts.

For night riding:

Oakley - Pink Iridium, HIYellow, HIPersimmon, Yellow, Clear
Smith - Sensor Mirror, Gold Sensor Mirror, Yellow, Clear, maybe get away with Rose
I'll have to dig around for my post on Spy's night lens options.
For other companies, it's basically Yellow or Clear.

THERE ARE SPECIFIC REASONS AS TO WHY I AM MORE LOCAL THAN YOU

I have Oakley wisdom grey polarized for bright conditions and wisdom's with the h.I. Intensity yellow lense for cloudy and night riding. Both work great for each condition

I have fire (red) mirrored for bright -> cloudy days, and an old pair of rose (no mirror) for low light, but I'm planning on buying some HIyellow or yellow to replace the old rose ones.

i have normal persimmons on my crowbars and they suit me pretty well for all conditions. maybe my local night place just has good lighting, but i've never had problems wearing them at night.

I havent had many problems with my persimmon either on overcast cloudy Oregon days, but i cant help but wonder what Hi-Yellow would be like...except its 50-70 dollars to find out for my A-Frames...I wish i could demo goggle lenses for a run or two lol.

I have the pink iridiums, and they suck at night
