Been looking around and trying to find a good night lens to use while riding. A lot of people bring up the Pink Iridium but I can't seem to find the lens for the Oakley Splice goggles. Are the VR50 Pink Iridium good for night as well? What about the Emerald Iridium? If those don't work I'm thinking about just going with clear or persimmon. Thanks for your help.

for night? Thats not a good choice. Pink is good for sun/bright overcast.

you should go for H.I. Yellow Iridium at night.

Hmmm I have read just about everywhere that the Pink Iridium is great for night. Actually a really good all around lens. Maybe I will go with the Hi Yellow.

What can I say... "just about everywhere" was wrong. Not surprising cuz most people are wrong about most things, and I find myself consistently having to educate the ones that are as dumb as they are stupid.

For pure night use Yellow is your best bet.

One last note. I would really try and stay away from using just one lens for all conditions. You will end up compromising. Pink is a good day lens for varying weather conditions. Yellow is great for night, or dark overcast and Fire Iridium is ideal for blue bird conditions.

I like going with Yellow and one of the many other options good for bright days (including pink).
