Find the Perfect Swim Goggles for an Even Better Perspective in the Water

Whether for training or competition, indoors or open water - swimming goggles are part of the basic equipment for every ambitious swimmer. Goggles for swimming primarily have a protective function and prevent water from reaching the eyes. So neither chlorine nor germs can get in the eyes. Furthermore, visibility is much better and more comfortable with swimming goggles - so you are guaranteed to have a great view even underwater. read more

Find the Perfect Swim Goggles for an Even Better Perspective in the Water

The choice of the right swimming goggles always depends on the intended purpose. Do you swim competitions and need a focused view in the pool? Then you should put the Swedish goggles on your shortlist. If you are looking for goggles for training or leisure activities, you will certainly find them within our classical swim goggles or swimming masks.

Swedish Goggles for Professional Swimmers

The Swedish style is especially popular with competitive swimmers and athletes, for whom every second in the water counts. They are ultra-light, minimalist swimming goggles, without a silicone edge or rubber gasket on the hard eye cups. Thanks to their hydrodynamic shape, they offer extremely low water resistance and almost no restrictions on the field of vision. Since the Swedish goggles are placed in the eye sockets and are not just pressed to the face around the eyes, they cannot slip even when you are doing a flip turn or a dive. Nevertheless, these types of swimming goggles should only be worn during competitions. The pressure on the eyes can become very unpleasant in the long run and even lead to injuries.

The Classical Swimming Goggles for Recreational Swimmers or Training

With classic swim goggles, the eye frames are padded with silicone or rubber and therefore able to stick optimally on the face — like a suction cup. They come in many different shapes and colours, so every swimmer will find the perfect model for every easy swim or training session. The suction cup goggles are also popular with triathletes, because they are comfortable to wear over long distances and the soft outer shells significantly reduce the risk of injury in the starting line-up.

The Swimming Masks for Great Comfort in the Water

Unlike other goggles, swimming masks are placed on the cheek bones and forehead. The silicone rim is larger than that of the suction cup goggles, making them even more comfortable to wear. This model is therefore ideally qualified as swimming goggles for children or for long distances.

Open Water or Indoor Swimming, in Sunshine or on Cloudy Days – The Right Lens Colour

Swimming goggles are available in a wide range of lens colours: clear, mirrored, tinted or even polarised. To find the perfect one for you, you should consider where you spend most of your time in the water.

Outdoor Swimming in Very Good Light Conditions

If you often swim in open water and on days with plenty of sunshine, you should make sure that your swimming goggles have UV protection. Since sunrays are strongly reflected by the water surface, special protection is necessary. Dark tinted lenses with polarization filter out disturbing glare effects that occur on the water surface in open water. Mirrored glasses are also suitable for sunny conditions. They create a darkened view, but can also be helpful during indoor competitions, as they help you to focus and concentrate on your own swimlane

Swimming in Medium Light Conditions or Artificial Light

Clear or blue-tinted glasses are particularly suitable for training sessions or competitions in medium lighting conditions in the pool or in the swimming hall with artificial light. These change perception only slightly and protect the eyes first and foremost.

Swimming in Low Light Conditions or at Dusk

Coloured glasses in orange or yellow increase contrast in poor lighting conditions in dark indoor pools. In addition to improving visibility, they can also make it easier to find your way around if you are tempted to go back into the water at dusk.

When Buying Swimming Goggles, This Is What You Should Be Aware Of

If the glasses are pinched, fogged up or let in water, they ultimately do more harm than good. Therefore it is important to find the right size and shape.
There are three factors to consider: the head shape, the width of the nose bridge and the distance between the eyes. The nose bridge and headband of the goggles can usually be adjusted so that you can adapt them to your needs. In general, your swimming goggles should fit firmly without feeling uncomfortable.
With the suction test you can quickly and easily find out whether the fit of the goggles suits your face. Put on the goggles and press them lightly. It is important that you do not put the headband around the back of the head, but simply let it hang. The goggles create a negative pressure and should remain on your face for at least 3 seconds. If they fall off immediately, try a different size or shape. BIKE24 offers a wide range of swimming goggles for adults and children so that everyone can find the perfect size and fit. If the eye cups hold as described, you can now adjust the nose bridge and headband.

Despite the similarity of swimming masks to classic diving goggles or diving masks, you should never dive deeper than 2 metres with your swimming goggles. The resulting negative pressure can cause eye injuries.

 

Tips for the Care and Storage of Your Swimming Goggles

When the training or competition is over, you should not simply throw your swimming goggles into the sports bag. Rinse them out with cold, clear water after each use and then leave them to air dry. Always make sure that you do not touch the inside of the lenses or try to dry the glasses with a towel. This can very easily cause scratches or damage to the anti-fog coating. As soon as your goggles are dry, you can put them in a suitable hard-shell case — so they stay safe even outside the pool.

Why Do Swimming Goggles Become Fogged up and How Can This Be Prevented?

There can be several reasons why swimming goggles fog up. In addition to the difference in temperature between body and water, a common reason for fogged lenses is incorrect care and abrasion of the anti-fog coating. This is applied to the inside of the glass during production. Therefore, it is important that you do not touch or rub the inside of your lenses - neither with your finger, nor with a towel or any other object. Once the coating is damaged, you will no longer have a clear view. However, it is also possible to renew the anti-fog coating manually with a spray or liquid.

Swimming Goggles with Prescription

BIKE24 also offers the appropriate swimming goggles with common dioptre numbers for swimmers with visual acuity. These are usually exchangeable lenses that allow you to keep your eyesight and safety in the water — even with your visual acuity.
