One glance at the Speedo Fastskin3 Elite Mirrored Goggles and you’ll immediately notice that they are like nothing you’ve encountered before. Shaped to fit within the eye sockets, as opposed to around them, the Elite Mirrored Goggles help give an ultra low profile shape to your face frame.
The Elite Mirrored Goggles give swimmers an ultra low, hydrodynamic profile that’s able to produce an extra wide field of peripheral vision. They are ideal for competitive swimmers who want to cut down on drag but still need to keep an eye on the competition. The Speedo goggle’s unique lens shape is what allows them to work so differently than other, traditional goggles. Instead of fitting around the eye sockets, as most goggles do, the Fastskin3 Elite Mirrored Goggles fit seamlessly into the eye sockets. Not only does this attribute to the renowned streamline shape, but also ensures a solid, leak proof fit. And because the lenses fit snugly into the face shape, there is less need for uncomfortable, over-tight strap tension. The lenses’ mirrored finish helps reduce brightness and glare in both indoor and outdoor pools. For something a little less fitted, yet equally as effective, try Speedo’s more economical choice, the Vanquisher 2.0 Plus Goggle. They, too, are available in a mirrored finish and provide a low profile frame suitable for competitive swimming.
Comfortable, IQ Fit Strap
The Fastskin3 Elite Mirrored Goggles feature Speedo’s own IQ Fit goggle strap. This new, fully integrated one-piece strap helps eliminate dangling strap ends, which can produce unnecessary drag. It also features an easy-to-adjust tension scale system that allows swimmers to measure and re-find the perfect fit each and every wear. The flat strap reduces bulk under any swim cap, which helps to further cut down on drag. The goggles also come with 3 interchangeable nose bridges for an even more customizable fit.
More About the Fastskin3 Line
The Speedo Fastskin3 line is all about streamlining the body for optimal, drag-free results. It was specifically designed with high-level swimmers in mind and its system of cap, goggles and suit were engineered to act as one, friction-reducing machine. Used by elite athletes, such as Michael Phelps and Rebecca Adlington, the Fastskin3 line combines to produce a total racing system that allows swimmers to cut through the water with maximum efficiency. The Speedo Fastskin3 Swim Cap works in conjunction with the Fastskin3 goggles to create a perfectly streamline head shape. And both the Speedo Fastskin3 Elite Goggles and Elite Mirrored Goggles are low profile enough for any level competition. Throw your entire Fastskin3 system into the Speedo Mesh Equipment Bag after your swim. The bag’s ventilated mesh design allows proper airflow while your gear is in storage.
The AquaGear Opinion
The AquaGear pool was ready for testers to try out the ultra sleek Speedo Fastskin3 Elite Mirrored Goggle. Testers noted right away that this is a very tight fitting goggle. Instead of fitting around the eye sockets, it actually fits into them. Because of this, AquaGear swimmers warn other swimmers to be careful to let out the head strap and properly adjust the goggles before jumping in. The Speedo goggles definitely did not feel like traditional goggles, yet were ideal for the more serious swimmers in the test bunch. And everyone really enjoyed the Elite Mirrored Goggles’ stylish design and eye-catching streamlined appearance. And while tight fitting, the head strap's included measurements ensured a perfect fit each and every time it was adjusted.
The Bottom Line
If you’re a serious swimmer looking for a race day goggle that’s seriously different, then try out the Speedo Fastskin3 Elite Mirrored Goggle. It’s unique design helps keep your face streamline as you cut through the water with ease.
