    What Oakley lenses to use for MTB?

    The trails will be thick and woody, with the occasional sunlight peeking through. I was thinking of the VR28. Does anyone have any recommendations? Thanks

    The Golf Lense is awesome... I think it's G30? I have both Persimmon, and Golf, and the Golf lens is better for not having to constantly change out. You can wear it for pretty much anything instead of having some goofy orange lenses in all the time.

    I prefer just Grey Polarized for a solid all rounder in my prescription Oakleys. Good enough in the Colorado midday sun, yet wearable at dusk and indoors. Plus no weird color tint. I forgot to pack my regular glasses for an evening ride once and was able to wear them until it was almost dark.

    Medium to bright light. Excellent all-purpose lens that cuts blinding glare while offering truer color perception.
    Gotta get up to get down.

    I am buying Oakley lenses for MTB trails which are mostly in shade but there are also few sunny parts. I am choosing between photochromic lens and prizm trail. Which one would you suggest me? Thanks.

    I'm really digging the new Prizm trail lenses as well as Prizm road lenses for super bright days.

    I also like the Tungsten Polarized lenses.

    I have the trail prizm. Just awsome. Really good contrast. Even in shade.

    I'd go with persimmon or HI persimmon. I found the trails. VR28, and G30 too dark for the forest, especially on cloudy days. If they had a photochromic trail or persimmon, I'd be all over it.
