Why do you need to use swimming goggles?
The swimming (or pool) goggles are used as protective equipment by swimmers of all levels. They are waterproof and protect the eyes against contact with, for example, chlorinated water, and also salt water. They are anti-UV and provide comfortable vision both in and out of water. A pair of swimming goggles is made of several parts: - Lenses, more or less tinted - Seals - Flexible or rigid bridge - Elastic straps with adjustment system
Is fog in goggles unavoidable?
The fog on swimming goggles or masks depends on several factors (body-water difference, humidity level, perspiration, etc.). Our treatments delay the appearance of fog. The anti-fog treatment is a clear varnish applied to the interior of the lenses. It is sensitive to rubbing, which makes the treatment ineffective and leaves marks. To renovate your ageing product, we offer an anti-fog reactivator to be used at each session ensuring you fog-free swimming.
How to choose the size of your swimming goggles?

And how do you adjust your swimming goggles?
Worried about badly adjusting them, worried about overtightening them, impossible! We combined the technology of an adjustment wheel - similar to that of a cycling helmet - with swimming goggles. The challenge was in the design of the rigid arms and the challenge for engineers was to construct them to within a tenth of a millimetre. You also benefit from the patented EXTEND system, which lets you place goggles on your forehead whenever necessary, without having to slacken the adjustment wheel.
