best goggles for low light / night?

heyo,

I haven't figured out how to search the forums, so sorry if this is a repeat.

I want to buy the best goggles for low light / night visibility. (also don't want them to fog up either)

Any idea what goggles might help me see at night?

It's not so much the goggle as more the lens. If you want brand names, take a look at Oakley, Spy, Von Zipper, Anon, etc...

Just make sure to get the correct lens...

Who makes the best lens then for low light / night visibility

(I understand the colors, but all brands styles can't be equal - I'm sure spherical is better than cylindrical)

Has any goggle maker gone out of their way to make a lens for low light?

Yes, they all make lenses meant for night riding.

Most are either plain Clear or plain Yellow.

Some make tinted lenses that have mirror coatings.

There are many goggle lens threads here.

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

yes all brand styles can be equal in terms of tech and lenses. They all make cylindrical lenses, they all make sherical ones too. They all make clear lenses and yellow lenses.

just find ones that fit your face...

Night riding your basically just looking for something that keeps the wind out of your eyes and maybe give some contrast like a Hi-yellow lens depending on the lighting..
If a $20 pair of Scott goggles from Sports Authority are comfortable and have clear lenses, use those...

IF you get a pair that is towards the higher end performance wise of a particular brand, some of them come with 2 lenses, one is usually for day, and one for night. I know Von Zipper has them.
