anything with a gold or rose tint and a hint of mirroring, the mirror well help when its bright and the gold or rose tint helps with discerning the snow contours

Spy Lens Options:
Clear -- Allows 92.5% light transmission. Lenses for Night. This is pretty much a no-brainer, if it's dark out, your best bet is a clear lens.

Yellow -- Allows 86.6% light transmission. Low light. Excellent contrast-enhancing lens offers contrast and increased depth perception in flat light.

Clear Silver Mirror -- Allows 54.6% light transmission. Neutral shade that keeps color distortion to a minimum and lets you see most naturally. Use for very low light conditions and flat conditions.

Persimmon -- Allows 54% light transmission. Overcast. Excellent contrast-enhancing lens for partly sunny conditions.

Blue Orange Spectra Mirror -- Allows 51.2% light transmission. Overcast. Excellent all-purpose contrast-enhancing lens for partly sunny conditions. Features an mirrored coating for maximized glare reduction.

Rose -- Allows 37.2% light transmission. Overcast. Excellent contrast-enhancing lens for partly sunny conditions.

Rose Silver Mirror -- Allows 37.2% light transmission. Lenses for Mostly Sunny Light. If it's sunny, but not guaranteed, you want to stick with a lens with a medium base tint and mirror coating to reflect the sun's rays and reduce glare. If it's leaning to the sunny side of the spectrum, go with a darker base tint and/or more mirror treatment. Rose based tints offer good depth perception.

Salmon Blue Spectra Mirror -- Allows 35.7% light transmission. Lenses for Mostly Sunny Light. If it's sunny, but not guaranteed, you want to stick with a lens with a medium base tint and mirror coating to reflect the sun's rays and reduce glare. If it's leaning to the sunny side of the spectrum, go with a darker base tint and/or more mirror treatment.

Bronze Red Spectra Mirror -- Allows 32.9% light transmission. Bright light. Excellent all-purpose contrast-enhancing lens for mostly sunny conditions.

Persimmon Silver Mirror -- Allows 30% light transmission. Lenses for Overcast/Partly Sunny Light. On less-than-perfect days, use a lens with a lighter base tint that gives increased contrast. Orange based tints offer increased contrast and definition.

Bronze -- Allows 23% light transmission. Lenses for Full Sunlight. For bright and sunny days, use a lens with a dark base tint and/or a strong mirror coating to filter the brightness, reflect sunlight and reduce glare. Bronze based tints offer increased contrast and definition.

Gray Silver Mirror -- Allows 16% light transmission. Lenses for Full Sunlight. For bright and sunny days, use a lens with a dark base tint and/or a strong mirror coating to filter the brightness, reflect sunlight and reduce glare. Gray based tints offer true color perception. What you see is what you get.

Bronze Silver Mirror -- Allows 10.8% light transmission. Lenses for Full Sunlight. For bright and sunny days, use a lens with a dark base tint and/or a strong mirror coating to filter the brightness, reflect sunlight and reduce glare. Bronze based tints offer increased contrast and definition.

Bronze Gold Mirror -- Allows 10% light transmission. Lenses for Full Sunlight. For bright and sunny days, use a lens with a dark base tint and/or a strong mirror coating to filter the brightness, reflect sunlight and reduce glare. Bronze based tints offer increased contrast and definition.



Yellow/Blue Spectra Mirror isn't listed, but IMO that's their best all-round lens tint. It has a VLT of ~60%. I rock em any day (or night) that isn't bluebird.

I would say Persimmon or this Yellow/Blue people are talking about..Yellows are great lenses though for most riding conditions unless as someone mentioned previously you have sensitive eyes then when its really bright it might be too much...
I just have a set of Hi-Yellows Oakley A Frames for most riding days and a set of Persimmon A frames incase it looks to be a super bright day.
