Goggles are like a second skin for swimmers: they must fit perfectly, provide perfect vision, be watertight, and fit neatly around the nose and back of the head, so that you can swim carefree.
The world of goggles is full of surprises; there are all kinds of different types designed for every possible kind of “homo amphibius”.

Are you ready?!
These goggles are designed for competitive swimmers, who see races as their favourite hunting ground. Compared to other models, racing goggles have hard lenses to provide better, clearer vision and small seals to fit better around the eyes and provide better hydrodynamics. They have a dual strap so the goggles fit around your head properly and are attached in two places. The interchangeable nose bridge and “fixed” clip mean they can be customised to fit your face perfectly.
You can choose your own favourites based on the type of lens you require: clear-coloured lenses, ideal for indoor or duller days, or dark lenses if you train in well lit pools or outdoor.
Swimmers who use Fitness goggles love to train in the pool, but also swim in open water, like, for example, triathletes.
Most arena Fitness Goggles also have an interesting special strap adjustment system: it allows you to alter the strap length without having to remove your goggles, so you do not need to interrupt your training. They usually have a split strap that makes them more comfortable and perfectly watertight.
If you have a small face, you can opt for a model with smaller eye gaskets, which will guarantee a perfect watertight fit. If you prefer having a wider field of view while swimming, choose a model with large lenses or a mask.
These goggles are an excellent choice for people who do not follow an intensive training plan in the pool, but are nevertheless looking for tough, comfortable and, above all, easy-to-wear goggles.
Perfect water-tightness is guaranteed by the flexible nose bridges and easy to adjust straps.
These really are the perfect goggles for people who swim for the sheer pleasure and fun of it.
