Need help choosing OAKLEY lens

I'm really interested in picking up some oakleys but not sure which lens to get.

I'm thinking either

vr28 pink iridium
vr50 pink iridium
high intensity persimmon
high intensity yellow


I need something good in low light conditions but also want a really reflective lens.

If anyone has any pictures of these goggles it would really help me with my choice.

Thanks

I don't think they make a vr28 pink iridium. VR50 pink iridium or HI persimmon are going to be the best options for an all around lense

Well, generally speaking as the reflectivity goes up, the VLT of a lens goes down. This isn't always the case, Pink Iridium is definitely the most reflective that you have listed.

Where are you riding? In the PNW there are only a few lenses I would recommend for every day goggles.

13/14 days
60/75

14/15 days
let's not talk about it
