The Speedo Rift Pro Goggle is a performance goggle at heart. Preferred by open-water swimmers, this goggle is streamlined, yet comfortable. Although this is not a race goggle, it is still an excellent choice for fitness swimmers.
Hybrid Design for Comfort and Performance
The Speedo Rift Pro Goggle is a hybrid design between a goggle and a mask. This allows the Rift Pro to provide the comfortable fit of a mask along with performance of a Speedo goggle. Still, the Rift Pro has a streamlined style and light weight (only 1.6 ounces) that makes it unique to the line of performance fitness hybrid swim goggles.
Speedo's Rift Pro is designed with high performance Biofuse technology. Speedo Biofuse products are engineered to perform in harmony with the body, offering superior comfort through fit. This flexible one-piece frame swim goggle is latex and PVC free, and boasts great visibility with an expanded side view great for recreational swimmers as well as a comfortable, soft frame that cushions the face to make long workouts more pleasant.
This is a terrific goggle for fitness swimmers. The hybrid design is incredibly comfortable and can be worn for extended periods of time. The Rift Pro is made from durable materials and designed to withstand the rigors of daily training.
Incredibly Wide Visual Field
A durable, polycarbonate panoramic lens provides greater peripheral vision. Cellulose proprionate, the lens material, is a transparent and glossy plastic with better low temperature impact properties than traditional goggle lenses. The Rift Pro features a mirrored lens finish to reduce brightness and glare outdoors, along with 100% UV protection and an anti-fog coating for a crisp, glare free, swim indoors and out.
A thermoplastic seal keeps the Rift Pro watertight, while increasing the masks overall comfort and durability.
Quick Fitting and Adjustments
A classic fit makes these an almost universal hybrid swim goggle. The speed fit silicone headstrap system is durable and allows you to easily adjust your goggle for a precision fit by simply pulling on each strap to tighten. These pulls are in the back of the goggle, and tighten as though tightening a ponytail by pulling in the opposite direction on each strap.
The Speedo Rift Pro Goggle is available in a blue lens with blue frame, gold mirrored lens with silver frame, and a smoke lens with black frame.
A Speedo Goggle Case will protect and prolong the life of your Rift Pros. This hard protective case shields your goggles from impact, and drainage holes promote quick drying. All Speedo goggles should be regularly coated in Speedo Antifog solution to improve performance and visual clarity.
If you like the Speedo Rift Pro Goggles, you might also consider the Speedo Rift Pro Swim Mask, which features the same hybrid design in a slightly bigger size than the Rift Pro Goggle. The Speedo Hybrid Swim Mask is another hybrid swim design great for open water swimming. The Hybrid Mask has a premium silicone skirt for a very soft but also very watertight fit.
The AquaGear Opinion
The Speedo Rift Pro Goggles fit very close to the face, near the sockets. Still, the vision is very clear, and the mirrored lenses make for exceptional visibility in bright light. Interesting to note: vision does seem slightly warped underwater, perhaps a side effect of the cellulose proprionate lens.
The Bottom Line
It can't be emphasized enough, this is an oversize comfort goggle for recreational and fitness swimmers. Grab your Speedo Rift Pro Goggle right here at AquaGear.com!
