What will replace the spare?
Add another one of Oakley's Airbrake Prizm Ski Goggle Replacement Lens to your optical arsenal. Prizm lenses provide the ultimate control of light transmission to enhance contrasts in a wide range of conditions, meaning you'll see where the good snow is a lot faster. Made with Plutonite, this lens resists impact and filters out 100% UVA, UVB, and UVC rays. Oakley coated it with F3 to eliminate fogging, and some of the lenses feature an Iridium coating for enhanced glare reduction and balanced light transmission.

Prizm - One Lens Solution
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I have owned almost all the snow lenses from Oakley and I can assure anyone interested in these prizm technology lenses that they are the best lenses I have ever used.
I have used them now several times, during bright sunlight, overcast and snowing conditions.
Bluebird - I was a bit worried that they may not work as well as my darker tinted lenses because they may let in too much light but I was wrong. I was able to see everything clearly and it almost seemed like these are polarized.
Overcast - These things again performed admirably. It gives such great contrast that I was able to see every little detail on my runs.
Snowy - They are not as good as the HI-Intensity Yellow but I didn't expect them to be. They did however still give more contrast on the mountain than any darker tint lens I had with me.
My favorite of the three was wearing them during bluebird days because of the amount of contrast they give that make all the details just pop!
I experienced no eye fatigue from the tint of the lenses and I 100% would recommend these as they are just that exceptional.
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I can't say enough good things about Oakley's Prizm lenses. I had them for two seasons, ~50 days a season, and excellent vision is paramount to the experience. Prizm lenses let me par-down to only carrying two, the Black Iridium and Rose, and they work well for every situation I encounter (mostly ski in Utah's Wasatch front). I have a lot of other lenses, but nothing performs as well as my Prizm lenses, not even close. Can't count the times after I first got the Rose that I put on an Iridium Hi-Yellow in whiteout or badly overcast flat light and struggled to make out detail. More than once I dropped 2+ feet off a ledge I couldn't distinguish from above. Pop in the Rose and contrast is stark, terrain is far easier to read in the worst conditions than any other lense I've ever tried. Every ledge is starkly detailed, and the smallest textures stand out. I have a Jade as well, but I've found that the Rose works so well for me that I don't even bother to carry it. Even in full light the Rose does a great job so if you want a true single lense this is the one I would pick. Their targeted spectral filtering is highly effective!
Excellent versatility and contrast
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I am a lens hoarder, and have around 10 different tints from Oakley. The Prizm lenses have quickly become some of my favorites. I put them through the wringer on a Japan trip with the worst visibility I can remember as well as normal daily use in CO.
I find them significantly more versatile than most of the usual lenses. Typically I am a three lens type of guy: HI Yellow for low light, VR50 Pink Iridium for overcast, and Black Iridium for pure sun. The Prizm Jade has completely replaced both the VR50 and Black Iridium, while improving contrast.
The Prizm Rose is a capable low light lens that is versatile enough to use in mildly sunny conditions. The HI Yellow they replaced were not that versatile and basically burned holes in your retinas if the sun came out. My only complaint about the Prizm Rose is that they block too much light. It makes them more versatile, but I think they would perform better in fog white outs if they had a similar VLT to the HI Yellow, but keep the very high contrast Prizm red tint.
This season they have released the HI Pink Prizm, which sounds like exactly what I am looking for in a low light lens. I can't wait to get my hands on a pair and update my review.
If you want a do it all lens, you cannot beat the Jade Prizm. Pair it with a HI Yellow or HI Pink for storm days and you will have everything covered.
