You don't want black lenses. You might think you look cool now, but when it's overcast or past sunset you'll be running into trees. Or be prepared to buy another lens and change them often.

A couple of coats of spray paint and you'll have black lenses and you can't see through them.

Seriously, any of the major brands have a dark lens available. Go to a shop and check out a few.

For ease of changing lenses, you can't beat the Oakley Airbrakes.

I would have to be very sunny - the really dark lenses are generally too dark for almost all conditions, including most bluebird days.

But hey, lots of people put looks over functionality... Just count the number of the Fire Iridiums on your mountain - they look cool but are too dark for the vast majority of conditions.

I ride sunny days with one of the lightest tint lenses out there fine... You really don't want to use a black lens.

i have oakley air brakes with a black lens, they are fine for me even when it is not a full on bright blue bird day, get what you want and don't worry about people telling you that its not right, go with what you want.
