    Hi Guys i currently own a pair of Flak 2.0 xl polished black/sapphire iridium. I would like to buy a second pair of Flak's which i can use for driving. I like the look of the Prizm Road. Can you tell me would these lenses be ok for driving or which would you recommend as i don't like polarized could you bear this in mind when offering me some suggestions. Thank you in advance for your time.

    Prizm road has 20% light transmission which is a bit much on very sunny days (at least for me). I prefer polarized lenses while driving, but that's just me.

    Tungsten or Titanium (slightly darker) are great lenses for driving as well.

    Sapphire is 20% transmission, while Tungsten is 15%, and my personal favourite all-condition driving tint.
    Tungsten's bronze base gives it the ability to increase contrast which, brightens the view, as opposed to the grey base of sapphire which is a neutral base.

    I'm partial to Black Chromes, SKU 24-119 came with Tungsten polarized, if you're in a gifting mood...
