#####How to Choose Lens Colour:
VLT - Visible Light Transmission; this is the amount of light the lens lets through. The higher the number, the more light penetrates through.
Oakley sets out to provide goggles with the highest level of optical clarity and protection. The different lens tints offer the greatest combination of colour balance, filtering and visual contrast to boost performance in any light conditions.
Whether you're heading into bright sunshine or overcast light, you can rely on unrivalled performance, protection and clarity with Oakley's High Definition Optics™.
Prizm™ is Oakley's ground-breaking lens technology. Heading out in overcast and flat light conditions? The Prizm™ lenses provides supreme management of light transmission so that you can ride in confidence. Consequently, colours become specifically tuned to improve contrast and visibility, so that you can see those textures and contours in overcast light, bright sunshine, or any conditions in between. As 4x World Cup alpine skiing champion Lindsay Vonn explains: '[With Prizm] I'm able to see those holes, bumps and little details in the snow that I normally wouldn't be able to see'.
The lenses are designed to work over a wider variety of light conditions than traditional snow lenses. This reduces the need to change lenses if the conditions switch while you're out on the mountain.
