    I have a pair of Carbon X Squared coming in a few days. They already have the black iridium polarized lenses in them but I'm thinking I will want something that wil stand out just a LITTLE more.

    I'm thinking emerald would look good.

    What do you guys think would look best. I don't want fire because my other pair has fire lenses.

    Emerald would be a good combo, but ice is another killer alternative.

    A lot of ruby these days looks for "fruby", close to fire.

    Emerald is a good choice or you could go jade for a more intense green. I agree ice would be a good choice, and so would violet. Probably the first question to ask, though, would be if you want a neutral tint for bright light or a contrast tint for more cloudy days. Of emerald, jade, ice, and violet, only violet is contrast, the rest are neutral. (Your fires are contrast but with a low light transmission, making them pretty good all-around).

    Personally, with carbon frames I really like +red polarized for neutral / bright light or oo red polarized for contrast / low light. Throw on some LG red or white rubbers with one of those two lenses and they'll look sick...

    I like the ice look in the carbon frames. That is what I currently have in my carbon Juliet's

    I had ice in my carbon and the frame seemed to over power the lens and it did not look very vibrant to me. I currently have ruby in it and that seems to be quite nice and bright. Defiantly stands out like I wanted. Fire also looks nice in the carbon frame as well.

    I ordered a pair of emerald lenses (Oakley oem). Those ice iridiums are looking very tempting too!
