Great For Competition
The Speedo Vanquisher Plus Goggles are an ideal pair for high-level competitive swimmers. Their low profile allows the goggle to lie close to the face and seamlessly mesh with the curves of the face. This performance goggle is streamline enough for race day, yet comfortable enough for everyday training. The Vanquisher Plus’ silicone gaskets not only lie flush with the eye sockets, but also cushion the delicate skin to remain comfortable for long duration swims. The goggle’s overall rigid feel allows the frame to create a watertight seal. These Speedo goggles were definitely designed for swimmers with a real need for speed.
Ideal Outdoor Goggle
The lenses in the Speedo Vanquisher Plus Goggle are mirrored to help filter bright light, from both indoor and natural sources. This makes them a great outdoor goggle, no matter if you swim in an outdoor pool, lake or ocean. Triathletes rely on this pair to not only protect their eyes from distracting glare, but to also provide them with an exceptional field of vision. The goggle’s expanded side view allows swimmers to keep a close eye on the competition around them. If you love the look and feel of the Vanquisher Plus’, but aren’t in the market for a mirrored lens, then try the Speedo Vanquisher 2.0 Goggle. It’s the exact same design as the Plus, only with clear, un-mirrored lenses. And, if you happen to need a little optical help to see clearly in the water, try the similarly designed Speedo Vanquisher Optical. They, too, are great competition goggles with built in prescription level corrective lenses.
Comfortable To Wear
The Speedo Vanquisher Plus Goggle comes with a double silicone head strap. This device helps keep the goggle firmly in place without too much tension. Between the gripping strap and soft silicone eye gaskets, the Vanquisher Plus provides a comfortable, yet streamline, fit. The goggle is made from 100% PVC and Latex-free materials. The mirrored lenses are coated with an anti-fog coating and the hypoallergenic lenses give swimmers up to 95+ UV protection. Because they are so easy to wear, the goggle can withstand endurance swims. Use them in conjunction with some of Speedo’s other devices for an efficient session in the pool. The Speedo Short Blade Training Fins are ideal for increasing both cardio and strength levels - two things that all competitive swimmers are always looking to improve.
The AquaGear Opinion
The AquaGear testers looked extra sharp in their Speedo Vanquisher Plus Goggles. They found that the goggles fit snugly, but not overly tight. The goggles remained watertight throughout the entire testing session, and their anti-fog coating really helped keep fog at bay. Testers also liked that the Vanquisher Plus came with interchangeable nosepieces in order to fit each and every face shape properly. The goggle’s slightly curved shape easily accommodates both large face and petite face frames without a problem.
The Bottom Line
No matter if you’re an avid open water or lap swimmer, the Speedo Vanquisher Plus Goggles with mirrored lenses will help you train more efficiently and help you see clearly all the way to the finish line.
