Spy Goggle Lens Tint Guide


  • VLT - Visible Light Transmission. This is a percentage based on the amount of light that will come through to your eyes. Generally, a higher percent VLT makes it easier to see through the lens in low-light conditions. A lower VLT percentage will be more useful during very bright conditions, and when dealing with harsh reflective glare from the sun. VLT % may vary between spherical and cylindrical lens shapes.
  • HD+: Happy Definition. Dull landscapes vanish with HD+ lens technology, providing increased clarity, sharper focus and accentuated changes in terrain while reducing eye strain and improving your mood and alertness. Models: Legacy, Legacy SE, Marauder, Marshall.
  • S3: 12-15% VLT - Sunny days
  • S2: 15-46% - Mixed days that may be sunny to cloudy
  • S1: 46-54% - Flat light and low light powder days, and night lenses
  • Spectra: Multiple layers of mirrors that help reduce glare on bright days
