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.

Pink Iridium for me on 90% of the days in the PNW. Works well in overcast to bluebird, and HI yellow for fog/night

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

I can only find the vr50 pinks but no pink iridium is there a difference between the two, im guessing from the previous post there must be because its 40% and 57%.

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've neen running the Emerald in the Canopy and love it. It's a pretty hard lens to find though. That lens and the Hi Yellow are my combo.

How would you compare the canopy size to
The eg2? Or spy platoon?
