Oakley PRIZM Snow Lens Chart
We created this PRIZM Snow Lens Chart as a quick reference for you to discover the differences between all the PRIZM Snow lenses. The lenses are arranged from bright light to low light so you can find something for every condition you will encounter out on the slopes.
Picking up on all the details on the mountain is of utmost importance for advanced and beginners alike. The contrast needed to do so is exactly what makes PRIZM lenses more than just another lens. Whether you are navigating the bunny hill or charging down double blacks, the boost in contrast will make everything in your environment easier to see.
PRIZM HI-Pink is Oakley's answer for the ultimate low-light lens. It will bring you unbelievable contrast on white out or overcast days, allowing you to see every little detail. HI-Pink has a visible light transmission of 35-40% with boosted contrast. A higher VLT will allow more light through the lens than a darker tint so you can see more clearly. The increase in contrast from PRIZM lens technology makes picking up on details in the snow easier, giving you a safer riding experience.
- Conditions: low light, overcast, whiteout
- VLT: 38%
- Base color: pink
PRIZM Rose is very similar to HI-Pink, with a few key differences. PRIZM rose is also ideal for low light or overcast conditions but features a lower visible light transmission of 25-28%. This means that PRIZM Rose is a slightly darker lens than PRIZM HI-Pink. We also have a separate blog explaining the differences between PRIZM Rose and PRIZM HI-Pink.
- Conditions: cloudy/overcast, minimal sun, snow
- VLT: 26%
- Base color: rose
PRIZM Torch, PRIZM Jade, and PRIZM Sapphire are all similar functionally, but feature different aesthetics.
