Whats better Persimmon or iridium? I heard somewhere that Persimmon is good for both low light and sunny conditions, wrong?

Also are Oakley O frame goggles or Dragon DX goggles any good? just trying to weigh up my options.

Thumbs up Oakley A Frames

Oakley A frames with the persimmons lense is the most versatile / bang for the buck. Like the picture below -

If you get the iridium you could be screwed if you find yourself stuck in flat light, shadows or night riding conditions. The best bet is to get 2 pairs of oakley a frames - one with each lense. Of if money is tight get the iridium and buy an extra persimmons lense.

Im sooo sold on the A frames I've been wearing them for about 7 years now. I've got 3 pair.

The O frames are wider, and you can't change the lense out like you can with A Frames.

Dragon DX is good, but the A frame is better.
