Having a hard time finding solid recommendations on what tint of lens works well for riding in the desert, living in las cruces new mexico, what do you guys think?

I really like the blue tint. However, it is not so good once the lens gets dusty or at dusk. But, overall it works really well and gives a good contrast while killing the over bright desert. Otherwise, I run a light tint.

I run the light blue tent for my Oakley Goggles. This color kills the glare but doesnt make it so dark that you feel like you need to slow down in the shady areas or when the sun goes down. I love it and never switch them out.

My vote ^^^


I had blue tint for sand dunes. Helps with contrast. In the sand, if the light is right, a 45 degree hill can look like flat stretch of ground lol.
