Best Goggle Lense for Night

I was planning on buying a clear lense for night but I was talking to a guy at the local shop that said the sensor mirror lense I have on my Smiths is even better than a clear lense. He said it let alot of light in and cut down on the glare from the lights.

Anyone used the sesor mirror at night?

I heard the same thing, and have been asking the same question.

What is Spy's equivalent of Smith's sensor mirror lens?

Depends on which sensor mirror it is. But a clear is really the way to go.

not sure about the sensor mirror lens, but I've tried a couple of different tinted glasses and they were all way too dark for being out on the mountain at night. Let me know if anyone finds out something different but I say stick with the clear.

On the smith website, it says that the sensor mirror allows more light to pass through than yellow. I am personally looking to get the smith phenom with the sensor mirror so that I have a lens that will work at night, and the few times I will go during the day. Even then, it will probably be cloudy.

I've worn the same Oakley's for like seven years with a yellow lense. I love it and I've done mostly night boarding. The yellow seems perfect for me.

Guess I'll just have to try it out. I've been using orange lenses at night and it works fine but I know that clear, and maybe the sensor, will be much better.

I had the Phenom's with a sensor mirror and that was a great all around lens. For night I still think the clear or yellow is better because it hilights the changes in terrain better than the sensor mirror did, but his point about the lights is very accurate.
