Oakley has a High Intensity yellow that is very light and is what I use for boarding at night under the lights. Oakley also has a clear lens available for their goggles as well.

If your looking for good peripherals you should look into goggles with a spherical lens like the Oakley A Frame or something along those lines. As for the clear lens they are better for night riding. Certain colors of lenses are better for certain conditions. A yellow or gold lens may be a happy comprimize.

I have used the Oakley A-Frame before and I found them to be too narrow. I now use the Wisdoms and find them a lot better. I've also heard that the crowbars have an excellent field of vision as well.

As far as vision goes, get von zipper googles. Those things have very nice peripherals. They look quite big and some people dont like them do to "style" but I think they are great for boarding because they don't restrict your vision much at all compared to other goggles. I like von zippers because other goggles made me feel boxed in and I coulden't really ride with them on, so I went goggleless and ended up going snowblind one season, will never do that again, von zippers were a godsend.

I second the VZ suggestion. Also as an FYI you can buy a clear lens for your Dragon DX's as well...

I second the wisdoms...I have a pair and even with wearing wide glasses they fit well and my perif is good.

Are clear lenses the best for night?

That or Yellow... I prefer yellow myself as I feel it brings out some of the definition in the snow but others swear by clear
