At $3.00 a pair its the cheapest triathlon gear you will ever buy.

I Have had swedes for the pas 20+ years and tried others, I become my own gasket, I usually have those things so tight my eyeballs fill them, but that’s me. Nothing worse than a loose leaky goggle (eye cup?).

+15 (or whatever number we are on) for sweedes. They are all I have ever worn since my youth days of TYR socket rockets and I will never wear anything else. I have done everything from sprints to IM's in them with never a single problem.

With that said, most goggle problems like leaking and eye/face pain are from overtightening. I can't count the number of people I see at the Y that complain their goggles leak and they keep tightening the goggles until their face is about to pop. I simply loosen the goggle straps for them to a light tenision and the leaking problems stop.

I just got a pair of aqua sphere k180s. They fit my face really well and stay on consistently off the blocks (despite my pathetic excuse for dives) I've tried sweeds off and on and I never found them conformable.

I started with speedos then moved to aquaspheres and I have now been on tyr spec ops for the past year. I can't recommend these enough perfect in every way.

After three triathlon seasons, I finally decided that I wanted to actually see well during the swim portion. My vision is not so great. I had to find better goggles.

So here I was, a hard-working, respectable, just-turned-forty-six-year-old, who never considered herself athletic, lining up in my swim cap and goggles for my first triathlon.

Enter the new TYR X-Sight goggles. The X-Sights have been designed with a flexible nose bridge that (surprise, surprise) is shaped like an “X”.

Getting fall discounts on triathlon equipment is more difficult than finding the Great Pumpkin, right? Well, I’m here to say it isn’t so. Deals for triathletes are plentiful - you just have to look.
