    I am looking at getting new goggles and am wondering what lens colors to get. In different types of riding conditions, what color lens is best? Not sure if I should get yellow, blue, etc.

    Just get light sensitive goggles and have the best of everything. Mine change from yellow to orange to red and no matter what the condition I always see great.

    I've been a fan of the Amp Blue lenses for the past couple years. I wouldn't mind trying the light sensitive ones though...

    Don't get blue lenses unless it's for full bright sun. A light gold tint is best for any light conditions where it isn't bluebird out.

    I personally like blue lenses. They cut down the glare the best and they give the best contrast, making it easier to read the terrain.
    Different light conditions call for different lenses though. Clear lenses are best at night, yellow lenses are good for flat light.
    Light sensative lenses are nice too, but if you go from riding in the woods (where the lenses will be clear) to riding in an open area, you will be blinded for a bit until the lenses darken up.
