Oakley Prizm Snow Low Light Goggles
Low-light conditions on the snow pose a unique challenge. Terrain becomes tricky to read, increasing risks including obstacles and sharp changes in elevation making contrast enhancing lenses essential.
Prizm is a bioengineered lens technology, sport-tuned to enhance constrast and visibility in snowy environments. Snow environments are dominated by white and lack any particular colour. Prizm accentuates cyan and reds - colours we can best detect snow contrast with.
Three lenses sit in this category but are designed for slightly different purposes; meaning you're covered from whiteout conditions to overcast and dull conditions. There's a low light lens for all!
Prizm Rose was one of the first Prizm snow-specific lenses introduced by Oakley. Conceived as the choice for low-light skiing and boarding and with a visible light transmission (VLT) of 26%, this lens handles whiteout conditions well and is designed for the brighter side of overcast.
The original contrast enhancing colour, Orange. Prizm Persimmon has a VLT of 39% making it ideal for real low-light days and whiteout conditions. The contrast enhancement needed when the lights go out is vital and Orange is the go-to colour for most.
Prizm HI Pink Iridium
With a VLT of 46%, Prizm HI Pink Iridium was developed to hit the spot for the greyest days with no chance of the sun breaking through and full whiteout conditions. The iridium coating makes it suitable for night skiing and will help to dampen the brightness of floodlights.
