The eg2? Or spy platoon?

Banjo I have 3 lenses for my Oakleys:

Hi Yellow used 75% of the time
Pink Irridium used 15% of the time
Fire Irridium Used 10% of the time

When its partly cloudy and i wear the pinks, when the sun comes out, im fine....if you had to pick two, definitely the Hi Yellow and then you'd be safe with anything btw 30-60 vlt for your non- low light.

I would like to get a set of VR50 Pink and only run 2 lenses...i think somewhere in between my two irridiums would be perfect for anything but low light.

I too ride mt hood and was looking at the pink iridium lens( good for all conditions) how large is this goggle? I wear an xl protec helmet and need something with good peripheral. Would it e similar to the electric eg2? What are your opinions?

Thanks

Argo When it's going to be sunny I take an extra lens, start with yellow, go to fire iridium. When it's overcast I stick with just yellow. I also have a clear lens for night riding. I find myself riding with the yellow about 60% of days.

extra0 yeah, unfortunately Oakley doesn't list the VLT of their lenses. If you can find out what they are, I recommend something in the 25% VLT or less range for bright sunny days (anything higher and sensitive eyes will be squinting) and 60% VLT or more to see the very best possible in stormy and flat light days. For me, these overlap plenty.
