What is the best goggle lens color? It is mostly personal preference, but here are a few attributes to certain lens tints that can help you make the best choice for your eyes and skiing conditions.

General Lens Color Guide

*Blue light limits the eye's ability to focus and creates blurriness, especially in snowy environments. Many lenses are designed to reduce the amount of blue light that reaches the eye.

Lens Color Benefits
Yellow/Orange Provides greater clarity in fog and low-light, high contrast and depth perception by blocking blue light.
Pink/Red Improves depth perception, provides the best contrast, reduces eye strain (alters perceived color).
Blue/Purple Reduces glare, helps define contours and color perception.
Green Good all purpose tint, even color perception, dims glare while brightening shadows, improves contrast in low-light.
Brown/Amber/Bronze Ideal in variable conditions, enhances contrast and depth perception, cuts the haze for crisp vision.
Gray/Black Reduces eye fatigue, provides true color perception while minimizing glare in bright-light conditions, block the brightest rays.
Mirror Coatings Greatly reduce glare - the base tint lends the greatest visual benefits to the lens while the mirror tint is for glare protection.
Blue mirror specifically reflects away blue light, increasing visual acuity while minimizing glare.

Lens Categories

Category VLT Range Tint Conditions
0 80-100% None or Very Light Tint Very low light or night skiing
1 46-79% Light Tint Low light or overcast days

VLT - Visible Light Transmission

VLT is a measurement that specifies the percentage of light coming through the lens and reaching your eyes. A totally clear lens for dark conditions typically have around 90% VLT and a very dark colored lens with mirror for sunny conditions may have down to 10% VLT. Most all round lenses will be found between 30 to 60%.

Technical Info

5K LENS

The new 5K Lens tone formula was developed for the alpine environment. 5K enhances contrast and boosts color brilliance by filtering specific wave lengths of the visual spectrum, therefore revealing more details and assuring a safer, less tiring on-snow experience in any weather condition.

TORIC LENS

Toric lenses are curved in a way that avoids optical distortion.

UV400 & ANTI FOG

UV400 & Anti Fog refers to the intense UV protective qualities of HEAD lenses and their ability to minimize fogging. The light on the mountain is intense so you need the best protection possible as well as anti-fogging qualities to maintain the best visibility.

LAMINATED DOUBLE LENS LDL

By connecting the inner lens to the outer lens through a lamination process, there is no gap between the two lenses. This increases the field of vision by 15%. A special anti-fog coating is applied to assure a clear vision in any condition.

EXTREME WIDE FIELD OF VISION

HEAD's goggles with an extra-wide field of vision are perfect for racers, allowing a tight aerodynamic tuck without impaired vision.

INTERCHANGEABLE LENSES

Interchangeable Lenses means that they can be changed to suit light conditions or when damaged. This increases the longevity of a goggle frame and allows for flexibility.
