    Help Identifying Oakley Lens

    Yesterday at a ski swap, I bought some Oakley "ski" goggles as a gift and when I got home, I realized that they are not ski goggles.

    I identified them as the Oakley Airbrake MX Podium Checkout i cannot figure out the lens.

    The lens is clearly not what came with it. It is purple for one. It says, "Whiskey" where it would usually say Prizm. I removed the lens and it seems nice. No rough edges. It is exceptionally clear and crisp.

    Any ideas on what lens it is? I really like it but I don't ride Motocross or downhill so I have no use for them. I would like to be able to tell a buyer what they are when I go to sell them.

    I poked around a little but could find nothing with "whiskey" on the lens. Oakley did have a model called the "Whisker", but those were glasses. I've seen some non-Oakley aftermarket lenses and glasses with the wrong model number or the wrong name on them. They may just be aftermarkets cut to fit in the goggles???

    That may be the case. I have done all sort of searches from "Oakley whiskey" to "oakley purple Whiskey" to "whiskey goggles". The lenses have nice contrast so at least I'm not sitting around with something cheap.
