Goggle Recommendation

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
What are the best goggles/lenses (helmet compatible) for flat light conditions, not just in terms of brightness but more so for contrast and seeing terrain features? I have tried several brands and colors and haven't been able to find one I'm happy with.

 +3 on the Sensor Mirror (and, yes, Faux Carnival - the goggles you linked have the sensor mirror lens).

The "Sensor Mirror" is a goggle lens. Smith uses it in their Motor-sports line as well as their Snow Sports line of goggles. I believe the Piston model is classified by Smith as a snowmobile goggle.

OK, I get it now. So, a Smith Piston goggle with a Sensor Mirror is suitable for skiing?

Go Smith Phenon (which is the frame) or Prodigy (Frame) with Sensor mirror lens..  I use Phenom for low light powder days and Zeal SPPX for everyday use, (love the Zeals).....

I bought a pair of Smith Prodigys with Sensor Mirror lens on line for $75 shipped, I can't wait to get them!

I received the Smith Prodigy's, I like the Sensor Mirror lens but can't say I was impressed with the styling of fit of the frames (helmet/face). I ended up returning them and picked up a pair of the Smith Phenoms and I/O's with the Sensor Mirror lens, both are a big improvement in fit and appearance.

Prodigy's don't fit with my helmet, keeps getting pushed down on my nose. A friend who has a bunch of goggles said he had the same problem, and he has a different make helmet.
