A few years ago I got back into swimming. In my childhood I’d gone to lessons for years; represented my schools in competitions and my swimming club too. Then for many years I just swam for fun with friends or family. Pregnancy saw me back in the water for a while, as it was just so easy to move in the pool, but after my son was born I transferred my efforts into teaching him to swim well. Eventually though I felt the need to get back into the water and swim on a more serious basis for fitness, health and enjoyment. Now I swim three or four times a week and clock up 50 lengths a time in a 30+ metre pool. A key part of my swimming routine is wearing good quality goggles – it makes such a difference. When you swim with your face down in the water most of the time, you do need to protect your eyes. But, finding the right pair of goggles can take some trial and error. It’s so annoying to be always adjusting your goggles because water gets in or to find that your vision is impeded because the lenses keep misting up. Getting the goggles right though makes such a difference to your swimming, making swimming a much more pleasurable experience.
These Ninja Swimming Goggles from Phelps are very luxurious with their gold titanium mirrored lens. They are a streamlined racing goggle designed for ‘serious competition’ swimmers but obviously any swimmer may like to get their hands on it! I certainly would.
They are made in Italy using Aqua Sphere technology and were developed by Michael Phelps and his coach Bob Bowman. To get a perfect fit there’s a Race Fit Strap System for one-time low-profile strap adjustment. Simply fit it and forget it.
Curved lens technology for 180 degree panoramic view, so you can spot swimmers to the side without altering your head position and messing up your stroke. An ultra soft Softeril gasket provides watertight comfort and the four interchangeable nose bridges help ensure your perfect fit. Various lens options are available, including clear, smoke and mirrored. This gold titanium coated mirrored option offers ultimate glare protection for max visibility in bright conditions and also reflective glare conditions. Super for outdoor sun/cloud and indoor artificial light. FINA approved for racing.
