Anyone here ride with 100% glasses? I got a secondhand set a while back that came with a clear lens and a 14% VLT gold lens. I'm finding the gold lens only really works for road rides on bluebird days, or ski touring.

What VLT should I aim for when getting a lens for trail riding in sunny/variable conditions? 100% has a 24% and a 52% lens that I'm tossing up between.

I would go 52 or photochromic, if exists

I love my speedtraps, I use the photochromic almost year round here in the PNW, only on the brightest days do i swap in the red mirror or the blue mirror lenses I have for them. the photochromic is perfect when you go in and out of shaded areas a lot, its adjusts a lot faster than transitions prescription lenses in my experience

Thanks for the help!

52 would complement what you already have. Still got the gold one for sunny days, 52% one for less bright days

Trying some new Contis.

Trying some new Conti tires that got dropped off. Super sticky rubber, like can hear it peeling against the floor when riding around the shop. 1205g confirmed weight. 2.4. Going to the lift on Sunday so hopefully these are dope.

230x65, im waiting on some spacers so i can run it on my altitude but i may just try it out beforehand and hope for the best. You can have first dibs when im done with it haha, too bad the spire is trunnion

I will say in terms of weight game, it is noticeably lighter than the Float X, so i'd be interested to get it on a scale

With the absolute shit communication Intend has, I wouldn't run their products if they were free.

Not really worried about that, i have other shocks to use when this one needs servicing and last time fox had my X2 it took them 3 months to return it, so its not like the big guys are any better.
