Default Goggles 4 ...flatty...flat?

Best..... without a doubt......hands down.....favorite lens color for the flattest days? You know,......cloudy, snowing, blowing sideways in a big white out. The kind of conditions when you don't even realize your sliding down the fall line. Using yellow now, sometimes I wish I could get a little more contrast. Thoughts.........opinions.........?

I picked up Oakley's pink iridium and its worked well for some pretty dark days. I think hi yellow is a better option, but the pink iridium was my only choice at the time.

I just picked up a pair of Oakley Wisdoms with the H.I. Yellow lense the other week. I rode them last week in the flattest of flat light. They worked pretty goddamn good. Definitely better than the Amber lense on the old Anon's I was using, and better than the blue tinted clear lense on the VZ Phenom's I borrowed to ride one time.

The Smith Sensor Mirror works really well in flat light, but there's a difference between flat light and vertigo inducing whiteout.

I need BA in here. He's got a pair of Spy Trevors that have a lense in them that are brighter in sun that not wearing them. Amazing flat light lense. Its like a green/blue solex with a yellow base I think.

Another Smith Sensor Mirror vote! I have the Oakley HI Yellow lens too but the Sensor Mirror worked so great that I never had a reason to waste time changing goggles
