my personal opinion is they look good on a motocross ttack but on the trails they might look a bit over the top. you also have to think of their practicality, I spoke to heaps of riders when i was looking for the right set of goggles and when it comes down to it 9 out of 10 trail riders will tell you to stick with clear lenses unless your riding out in the open all day (ie desert riding)

On sunny days I run a normal dark tinted lense. I always have the clear lense in my backpack so I can switch if it gets too dark for the tinted lense. I always wear sunnies outdoors so am used to looking through tinted sunnies / lenses.

I didn't go for mirrored lenses because I assumed they would scratch and look shitty fast, like mirror sunnies do if abused.

Had a set.

was great but not straght mirrored lense but a filtered lense. cant remeber what type

I could see in very dappled light very well.

light to shade to light went well. If its straight mirror lense they will not be good in the forrest.

I dont really care what others think. prefere funtion over wank factor
