Best EG2 Lens for coudy/overcast conditions

I currently have the orange with silver chrome but it is really too dark to ride in low light conditions. So I want to buy a new lens online but I'm not sure which one would be best. The options without chrome mirror are orange, rose, and bronze. What one would be best for creating contrast on cloudy days.

You want yellow. I know you did not mention that choice here but its the lens of choice out here in the PNW IMO... I suppose orange given the choices you offered.

Yellow is the way to go. I have also heard that a clear lense with a light blue tint is good.

Yellow over rose? I've honestly never heard of anyone using a yellow lens. I thought that it was strictly for night riding

A plain yellow lens is good for heavy overcast/blizzard/night conditions. I have a yellow lens with a blue mirror finish that works well on the lighter overcast days too since it has less VLT than plain yellow. I don't think Electric has such a lens so I voted for rose since it's the perennial cloudy lens. My cloud lens was rose before I picked up these yellow/blue ones.

Best lens for low light, flat light and no light.. IMO It is the standard out here in the PN west.

only lens for me that really provides contrast while allowing as much light as possible to pass thru the lens to your eyes.. Nothing better out here.
