SWANS VALKYRIE + MIT

220 Triathlon Magazine - - POOL SWIM GOGGLES -

£39.38 This is the top-end ver­sion of the Valkyrie from Swans, with Mir­ror In­ser­tion Tech­nol­ogy (MIT) used in the lenses car­ried over from their ski gog­gle range. The mir­rored lens with full UVA and UVB pro­tec­tion is sand­wiched be­tween two poly­car­bon­ate lay­ers, pro­tect­ing them from scratch­ing or dam­age. But you wouldn’t know there was so much go­ing on in the lenses to wear them, as they have a very low pro­file. Swans’ pre­mium anti-fog coat­ing ap­pears to work bril­liantly and the field of vi­sion is ex­cel­lent con­sid­er­ing they ap­pear quite min­i­mal (the curved lenses do a great job of pro­vid­ing pe­riph­eral vi­sion). The straps are ba­sic and you’re left with some ex­cess at the back (although this can al­ways be cut down to size), but we love ev­ery­thing else about the Valkyrie and it’s quickly be­come our new favourite gog­gle for rac­ing. swan­suk.co.uk
