    A bunch of years ago when working in a bike shop I picked up a couple of pairs of original Frogskins. one pair had a purple iridium coating and the other had an orange iridium coating on the lenses. The purple pair had what I remember being a grey base lens and the orange pair had what best can be described as a Rayban green base to the lens. I'm going off memory and could be wrong but I really liked the base tint of the orange pair. Is something along this lens still offered? TIA

    The two lenses tints your referring to are Violet and Orange Iridium. Violet has a grey base lens and Orange had a amber, Fire is now the closest thing to Orange there is.

    Fire has a sort of greenish base as you describe, though it's often more yellow than orange now. Violet now has the same base so either will fit your wishes.
