Are these good for nite time and cloudy days?

Responded on

hey , ive used a lot of goggles and all of them hve their disadvantages at night, but if ur rlly looking into these specific goggles u can see if they sell replacement lense for them. if so u can buy some clear lenses and you will be all set for those graybird conditions, also another option is to check out anon goggles, on their website they have a virtual lens tester so u can see what they look like at night and when its cloudy.

Out of the lenses we currently have in stock for the Chakra goggle, your best choice would be the Smoke Pink Chrome lens which is optimal for overcast and blizzard light conditions.

The best lens for night riding is either a yellow or clear lens. And right now, we do have a yellow replacement lens in stock on Dogfunk.com as Item# VON0148 (http://www.dogfunk.com/von-zipper-chakra-goggle-replacement-lens).

Here's a breakdown of how some of the VZ lenses perform:

Bronze Polarized = 9% VLT = Best for sunny, partly cloudy conditions.
Bronze Chrome = 13% VLT = Best for sunny, partly cloudy conditions.
Gold Chrome = 14% VLT = Best for sunny, partly cloudy conditions.
Fire Chrome = 20% VLT = Best for sunny, partly cloudy conditions.
Smoke Green Chrome = 32% VLT = Best for sunny, partly cloudy conditions.
Bronze Pink Chrome = 35% VLT = Best for sunny, partly cloudy conditions. OK for overcast and blizzard conditions.
Rose = 35% VLT= Best for partly cloudy conditions. OK for sunny, overcast, or blizzard conditions.
Smoke Pink Chrome = 44% VLT = Best for overcast and blizzard conditions. OK for sunny and partly cloudy conditions.
Yellow = 73% VLT = Best for blizzard and night conditions. OK for overcast conditions.

VLT = Visual Light Transmittance = A measure of the amount of light that passes through the lens.
*The lower the percentage, the darker the lens tint, and the better it is for sunny conditions.
*The higher the percentage, the lighter the lens tint, and the better it is for cloudy conditions.
