Default night boarding goggles

i have a Scott goggle with orange-reddish tint lens, which is great for bright sunny days. but once the sun goes down, i lose all ground surface details. which is bad when im going off jumps and cant see my jumps/landings clearly.

any recommendation on brand / lens tint / model for a pair of goggles for night riding? usually in a park with big lights

thanks

Clear or yellow lens for night, although some people find that pink works well too. As for brand and model, just try some on and get whatever fits your face.

any of those (clear, pink, yellow) would also work for daytime?

ideally i want to spend money on one pair of goggles and have it be multi-functional. instead of having to shell out more for extra lenses and such.

yellow will be the best option for a multipurpose lens except for in very bright sunny conditions

for transitioning from day to night, I would say yellow works very well. Not sure about the persimmon, sorry.

Persimmon is for bright conditions as far as I know. I had the spy soldiers with the persimmon mirror and they were very dark. I couldn't even wear them on partly cloudy days.
