Speedo Speed Socket swimming goggles compared to standard goggles have larger, rounded lenses for better peripheral vision, making it easier to look at the competition without lifting your head out of the water. When ammonia and other chemical wastes combine with chlorine, they form “disinfectant by-products”, chemical compounds such as dichloramine and trichloramine, which not only cause red eyes, but can also irritate the respiratory tract (and pool odor “chlor-y”). Like Aqua Sphere, Cressi engineers and builds most of his glasses (including the Baloo) in Italy, and we found quality control on this pair of glasses to be first class. Speedo FastSkin3 Elite Goggles One of the biggest fears that competition swimmers are afraid that their glasses will leak a massive leak from the dive of an important race. Your own saliva can work as well as baby shampoo if you apply it in a very thin coat (you should let the baby shampoo dry) — but according to Speedos Nate Tracy, these solutions will ultimately become the more technologically advanced chemistry that manufacturers sprayed onto the lens during manufacture. Over the years, they have had countless Olympic champions and world champions in the squad, from Michael Phelps (his very first sponsorship), Nathan Adrian, Missy Franklin, Florent Manaudou and many more. For the first tests of adult glasses, my wife and I spent half a day in the pool under the hot sun of South Carolina, where they examined fit, fogginess, adjustability, pressure points and visual distortions. They are divided into two categories, training and competition, but these are only proposals based on the price, since the competitive glasses are quite expensive. There, during a series of morning swimming, I tested the glasses by bathing on the beach in the surf zone and bodysurfing amidst quite large waves. From the moment we opened the durable case for our Aqua Sphere Kayenne glasses, both adult and child versions, we noticed the superior workmanship in everything, from storage boxes to closures to lens coatings, instructions and fixing points. Eyewear from Aqua Sphere, Cressi and Speedo have ratchet systems with buttons and pull switches for spontaneous adjustment, and in our tests all these ratchet systems worked as advertised, without transmission stripping (and we found them, frankly, game changer). The Speed Socket and Vanquisher share a lot of features I really like, including silicone bands, different-sized nose bridges and a rubberized seal that helps suck your glasses to your face for a leak-proof fit. Vanquisher pair is a solid choice for young swimmers, but considering its thin straps and traditional goggles fit, non-swimming team kids prefers our other options. According to Speedo Engineer Nate Tracy and Mirko Bosio of Aqua Sphere, this kind of distortion is something big manufacturers are trying to overcome hard — but it's still a problem for some people anyway. Interestingly, nine pairs of glasses from different manufacturers proved to be almost identical in their frame and lens design, with only subtle differences in the wearers, lens tones or eye convulsions. In our tests, the slightly curved triangular lenses of the Kayenne fit an impressively wide range of face types: my narrow face, my wife's wider face, and the smaller face of my 8-year-old son (whether he was wearing adult glasses or children's glasses). Glasses should easily make a seal, even without a strap, but they should not be so tight that they leave rings around the eyes,” says Dave Samuelsohn, player coach of the Westchester Masters Swimming Association. “Speedo Covert Polarized+ As they offer more coverage than most race pairs, Marx says, the Speedo Covert glasses are particularly special beautiful, “if you have sensitive eyes or do not like the feeling of wet skin under your eyes. “They will protect you when you open your eyes under water, and thanks to the mirrored lenses, sunlight will not dazzle you if you pull up during your blows to breathe,” he says. We tested glasses of this type, and although we didn't love any of them, we found that they were much more comfortable than those that might have been available a few decades ago. "The sleek, flat design eliminates the drag that swimmers can slow down — important if you shave seconds of your time — and includes other features Crisotomo is looking for in racing glasses, such as “wide frames for more peripheral.
