Smith IO Lens Question
 
There is an Ebay store from the GTA that sells Smith IO goggles.

Most of them come with the Ignitor Lens plus an extra lens.

Here are a couple examples:

Ignitor Lens + Sensor Mirror

Ignitor Lens + Green Sol-X

Ignitor Lens + Red Sol-X

Given that they all come with the Ignitor Lens, what is a good 2nd lens that I should look for that would allow me to change between the two to account for the majority of boarding conditions (bright sunny, cloudy, snowing, night, etc)?

Sensor Mirror.

Seriously, best most versatile goggle lens ever.

Yep Sensor Mirror would be my vote for sure.... That price seems too good to be true.

Yeah, the price is almost too good to be true, but the seller has a 99.7% positive feedback with over 30,000 feedbacks. That's as close to a sure thing as you're gonna get on eBay.

Can't go wrong either way. I actually think that Ignitor is most versatile if you could truly only have one lens. Rod Sol-X is my favorite bright light lens ever, and Sensor is a killer low light lens. I think Red Sol-x and Sensor is really the most ideal combo.

Has anyone had a chance to try the Gold Sensor versus the Blue Sensor? They have the same VLT of 70% that the blue ones have. I have the standard blue ones and they are good, but in really flat light they still could be better. I can't find any store that has them and they are sold out online from Smith.

I'd like to hear a comparison if anyone has any experience with them.

I'd also be interested in hearing about this. I'd love to pick up a pair of the I/OX's, but the Blue Sensor Mirror lens isn't an option - gold is.

I love the Blue Sensor Mirror in flat light. Flat light conditions are just tough and that lens hangs in there with the best of them.

I have some cheap Oakley goggles and want to upgrade to something more versatile.

This seems like the best deal I will find around.

idk if you wanna wait a day or two but i was gonna put a smith i/o white frame with green sol-x lens and blue sensor mirror up on ebay. Just got an extra pair and was gonna sell them... let me know if you're interested

blue sensor is the standard in pnw with all our cloud, fog and flat light.
