    I was wondering what peoples opinions were for the best lens to use while riding in the woods. I am making a pair of jawbones to match my bike and I want to get the right lenses to go in there. One set I have to have is fire iridium but only because it is going to look sweet. So I am looking for the right lens when you are in the darker areas.

    According to a new oakley email, VR28 is.
    My personal goto lens for mountain trails is VR28 Blue Iridium. I carry clears and persimmons for JBs in my pack too.

    I use photochromic lenses on my Radar. That is just me.

    For mountainbiking, in and out of shade and sun, I prefer VR28.
    For road riding, you can't beat Fire iridium for it's contrast..

    Personally I usually opt for Persimmon, or if it's is quite sunny Gold Iridium.

    I use the photochromic lenses in my Radarlocks and absolutely love them. They are great when transitioning from heavily dark wooded areas to wide open sunny areas. It's the only lens I use now.

    P42, light +red or g40 would be my picks for wooded single track, maybe VR28 Blue or Blue Iridium for brighter trails.
