Australia-based Engine's Rockstar swim goggles are a streamlined, low-profile goggle perfect for competition, training or recreational swimming.
Designed for Competition
Their low profile design allows the Engine Rockstar to fit closer to the face, with the goggle's liquid silicone rim and gasket sitting primarily in the eye sockets themselves. This greatly reduces drag. Though their shape is streamlined, the Rockstar still features a mid-size lens for optimal range of vision.
The liquid silicone gasket of the Rockstar is soft, durable and the best material for creating an impenetrable waterproof seal. In fact, the silicone gasket is so soft that the Rockstar is one of few goggles comfortable enough to be worn over extended periods of time.
The Engine Rockstar Goggles are available in either a blue/green mirrored lens, a gold mirrored lens, a red mirrored lens, a silver mirrored lens, and a smoke mirrored lens. All lenses are best suited to brighter swim conditions, and are UV treated for full UV protection.
Four interchangeable nose pieces ensure a perfect fit and a seamless waterproof seal, or in case a replacement becomes necessary.
A quick-fit strap means simply pulling on straps at the back head to instantly tighten both sides simultaneously. This is quick, easy and can be done while wearing the goggle. Each Engine Rockstar Goggle comes with an extra head strap.
All Engine Rockstar Goggles are one-size-fits-all, and come with a zippered and soft-lined carrying case, guaranteeing maximum life from your goggles.
The Engine Rockstar Goggle is lightweight, weighing only 1.2 ounces.
If you like the Engine Rockstar Goggles, you might also like the Engine Princess Goggles, with all of the great low-profile features of the Rockstar and a female touch.
The AquaGear Opinion
Though the angled sides of the Rockstar lens can create tunnel vision, the mirrored lenses are excellent for blocking out the bright sun on an outdoor swim. Even with all of its nose pieces and its quick-fit strap, the Rockstar just isn't suited for smaller faces. The lens extends past the eye socket and ruins the seal.
The Bottom Line
Competitive swimmers with not a lot to look at underwater and a lot to gain from a pair of sleek, low-profile swim goggles need look no further than a pair of Engine Rockstar Goggles.
