The work an office job 8-5pm so the vast majority of my riding has been on weeknights(probably 85% or more) and I rock clear lenses , yellow worked good for me too but I just liked clear as they let the most light in.

I actually found it kinda difficult to find clear lenses in shops here. Seems that the trendier colored lenses are everywhere. Guess its not quite as exciting to buy clear over some silver iridium xenom flazer monsters

I used to wear goggles until I was trained to ride a snowboard by a blind kung-fu master.

Now I just shut my eyes and use my other senses to shred the gnar like my teacher.

Yep had to lenses order online, they were super cheap(25$) because they can't charge you for some fancy lens coating.

Thumbs up

The only thing I don't like about owning several lenses and one frame is the change-out. You get used to it on your particular goggle but still. Having two pairs is better IMO. I could buy another pair of Ashburys... but then i'd have like 6 lenses and two frames. No riding for me, strictly goggle maintenance day today

i hate changing lenses so i have 3 pairs of goggs

clear smith phenoms for night. i used to wear yellow which are 85% vlt. clear is 100%vlt, so for me i want 100 percent so i can see perfect. its true these clear ones are hard to find but well worth it.

i have smith phenom ignitor lense for cloudy/poor viz. they are 70%vlt

i have zeal sppx light sensitive adjusting/polarized for bright to mixed conditions. i think they are 28% through 60%vlt. these are awesome multipurpose but a shitty face fit.

its a timeless topic... i think most riders have only one pair of goggles.. you see them at nightime wearing dark lenses looking like a cyborg or something Hmmm, lets see... its nightime, snowing... some low cloud as well... theres sections on the mtn where the lighting is sparse. Your wearing dark goggles. Can you see where your going my friend?

its not nessasary to only own one pair of googles.
or one board.... "quiver killer"
or one pair of socks.

Spend spend spend people, and stimulate the economy not yourself
