SWIM­MING GOG­GLES

Speedo Speed Socket 2.0 Mir­rored

$40 Com­bin­ing a sleek, low-pro­file de­sign with a wide panoramic view, you get the best of both worlds with the Speed Socket 2.0 – gog­gles that do a great job in the pool, but also pro­vide lots of vi­sion for open-water swim­ming, too. The clas­sic race fit (read, in­ner eye) will keep those with a swim back­ground happy. You can re­ally dial in the fit with the dou­ble head­strap to en­sure you have leak-proof work­outs. The mir­rored lens is per­fect for open-water swim­ming, as it re­duces glare and bright­ness, but isn’t so dark that you won’t feel com­fort­able us­ing these in a pool.

WHETHER IT’S A pool work­out, an open-water swim with a group, or a mass start in a race, pos­si­bly the most crit­i­cal com­po­nent of any swim is your gog­gles. Hav­ing a pair that doesn’t leak, is com­fort­able for long pe­ri­ods of time (even the fastest full-dis­tance swim­mers take 45 min­utes to com­plete the first leg of the race), doesn’t fog up and pro­vide de­cent vi­sion can make all the dif­fer­ence in the suc­cess and sat­is­fac­tion of your next swim­ming en­deav­our. We’re happy to report that there are lots of op­tions out there that will al­low you to en­joy your next work­out or race. Here are a few sug­ges­tions:

Arena Co­bra Tri Mir­ror

$70 De­signed with triath­letes in mind, the Co­bra Tri gog­gles are spe­cially engi­neered so that water doesn’t flow over the lenses, so your vi­sion re­mains clear. The mir­rored lenses are great for open-water swims, but aren’t so dark that you’ll be hes­i­tant to use them in a pool. 3D Ja­panese TPE seals en­sure a com­fort­able fit and that water won’t get in. You can dial in the fit, too, thanks to the ad­justable nose piece and ad­justable split strap. The durable lenses will get you through lots of work­outs, won’t fog up and also pro­vide UV pro­tec­tion for those out­oor ef­forts.
