A light yellow or light rose tint lens. I like the Smith sensor mirror lenses and in the worst white conditions I like the yellow sensor mirror. I really want to like, and need to give it more time, the red sensor mirror.

For me, if I had to buy one I'd buy either the yellow or rose sensor. Bluebird doesn't bother me as much as white out conditions.

Agreed, I can see fine on bluebird days with my yellow lens, but I can't see shit if I had a dark lens on snowy/overcast days.

+1. Pet peeve of mine that many people ride with lenses that are much too dark - just look at all the Fire Iridium and similar lenses which are bluebird tints but which people are sporting in all kinds of conditions (presumably because the look cool).
