Yeah, you're not alone with the headaches from yellow lenses but it might be because you had them on in bright(er) light. I had hi yellows while snowboarding on Mt. Hood in the summer and I could barely open my eyes due to the brightness of the sun and its reflection off the snow. Mid-winter when it's overcast though is a different story, I used my hi yellows on the hill 90% of the time and love them.jaysc said:I'm just going to say that you ought to try yellow high-vis lenses before you buy them. I'm sure tons of people like them, but personally they give me a headache.
I might not be the only one.

The HI version has and iridium coating to squash glare, which might be important if you are doing stuff on snow or water, but for riding I do not think the HI persimmon or yellow really make a difference.
