Top Swim Goggles

The top swim goggles are those that are functional without weighing you down

Top Swim Goggles

during competition. Competitive swimmers know the traits of bad goggles, including loose bands and goggles that don’t sit flush with the skin, allowing water to seep in. The top swim goggles take all of these things into account during the design process, which makes a major difference when a swimmer is competing.

 Aqua Sphere Kaiman Goggles – These comfortable goggles are a favorite of competitive swimmers. Aqua Sphere Kaiman Goggles are made of super soft skin that never tugs or feels constricting around the eyes. These goggles also boast a watertight seal that doesn’t allow a drop of water in. This is important for distance swimmers and triathlons. The shape of the frames curve with the contours of the eye area for superior fit.

Swedish Goggles – Swedish Goggles are traditional competitive swimming goggles that have been around for decades. This is a testament to their simple design that has been modernized with the latest materials. These are a fuss-free pair of goggles that aren’t fancy, but have all of the elements of the best swim goggles. Swedish Goggles require assembly to ensure a custom fit for the individual swimmer. For swimmers who feel some of the more upscale swim goggles feel heavy or cover too much of the face, these are a great pick.

Tyr Flex 4.0 Goggles – The Tyr Flex 4.0 Goggles somewhat morph a snorkeling mask and swim goggles. Unlike a snorkeling mask, these goggles don’t cover the nose. They do conceal a large portion of the face, but some swimmers prefer this wide angle view while maintaining separate. It depends on the swimmer and what he or she is most comfortable wearing while in the water. The Tyr Flex 4.0 Goggles are ideal for beginner swimmers and new competitive swimmers. The Tyr Flex 4.0 is available in youth sizes.

Take into account what type of swimming you’ll do with the goggles. Many competitive swimmers have different goggles for practicing and competing. For practice, you want goggles that offer a wide view and smooth bands for a comfortable fit. For competition, many swimmers favor small frames with a wraparound style that completely shuts out water. Young competitive swimmers will benefit from small goggles that create a tight barrier for water and air.

Speedo Mirror Goggles for Outdoor Swimming

24 05 2010

Summer is here and outdoor swimming is going on everywhere. USA Swimming teams and summer league swim teams are now practicing and competing outdoors. This only means one thing…the sun. Yes the sun will be giving us all that great tan we like and making it really hard to see. This is unless you have some good mirror swim goggles. Metallic goggles are like sun glasses for swimmers and allow us to see when we are swimming, especially during the backstroke.

Back in the old days when I was a kid and the best solution was a smoke goggle and a squint of the eye, in order to avoid hitting the wall with my head. Now a days you can most likely find the same goggle you are using with a metallic lens. If you are not sure of some great metallic goggle I do have some suggestions. The best selling womens mirror goggle is by far the Speedo Women’s Vanquisher Goggle. This is a great fitting and super comfortable swim goggle, oh did I mention that they look pretty too. For guys you have your choice of the Speedo Vanquisher 2.0 Plus goggles, which is a new and improved version of the Speedo Vanquisher and the Michael Phelps goggle the Speedo Speed Socket Mirrored goggle. Let’s not forget about the kids, the Speedo Jr. Vanquisher Plus for kidos 8-14 years old or the Speedo Jr. Hydrospex Mirrored for the younger kids. This is a great goggle for kids, 1 piece frame design, easy adjustable strap system, and one of the all time best fitting kids goggles. Just a no brainer folks! I hope this helps and don’t forget the sunscreen!

The best-selling and best fitting goggle in the world for kids is the original Speedo Jr Hydrospex goggle. It features a soft 1 piece frame design with a nose piece that will not break and a split headstrap. The Hydrospex swim goggles also have antifog lenses so you can see in the water for your entire swim. But now Speedo has made this great goggle even better with the Speedo Junior Hydrospex 2.0. The 2.0 version has all of the same great features as the original version plus they have greatly improved the soft silicone frame and gasket system with even softer and more comfortable materials. This is by far one of the most comfortable goggles I have ever tried on. Speedo has also made the straps easier to adjust with the new Speedfit system that slides the strap loose or tight very quickly and effortlessly. So no more broken headstraps. The Speedo Jr Hydrospex 2.0 is a little more expensive but well worth the investment.

TYR’s Newest Goggle

Technoflex 4.0 Swim Goggle

Technoflex 4.0 Swim Goggle

One of the newest swim goggles now avaiable is a new take on a classic design. The all new TYR Technoflex 4.0 swim goggle is the next generation in the evolution of the Technoflex goggle line. TYR was the first brand to revolutionize the uni-body design of the swimming goggle with the original Technoflex goggle. It feature a one piece frame that was made of a soft pliable silicone gasket material. This unique design was quickly copied by many swim goggle companies because of the great comfort and fit that it provided to the swimmer. Over the years TYR has continued to develop their Technoflex goggle and they have made it more comfortable and better fitting. They have also extended the line to a junior goggle that is great for children. Now with the next release in the Technoflex line they have also created a female version called the Technoflex 4.0 Femme that is a perfect fit for women, who typically have narrower faces than men. The TYR Technoflex 4.0 goggle features a revolutionary dual injection manufacturing process. It incorporates differing harness densities of thermo-plastic rubber. The stiffer durometer material provides frame rigidy to prevent nose bridge stretch. The gaskets are injected with a softer durameter material to provide greater comfort and fit. This all combines for one of the most comfortable and best fitting swimming goggles on the market.
