FOR most regular and recreational swimmers, a set of goggles is a must have addition to your swimming kit, and I will admit to normally just picking the first set I see for sale, assuming they are all very much the same.
This is not the case, it would seem, with the Kayenne goggles from triathletes favourite Aqua Sphere.
Their goggles come packed with a number of unique features, most noticeably a larger wide angled lens that allows 180 degree peripheral vision.
In the real world, this greater field of up and down visibility allows you to better navigate your swim and avoid arms and legs in the face from rogue swimmers in busy pools.
The Kayenne also utilizes what Aqua Sphere call their Quick-Fit technology, which is basically a very simple to use buckle system which makes comfortable fitting a doddle, with a good water-tight seal around the eyes.
Like all the goggles in their range, Aqua Sphere equip the Kayennes with scratch and fog resistant lenses that offer complete UVA/UVB protection for those swimming outdoors.
The kayenne goggles retail at a shade over £20 and are also available for women and juniors too, with a variety of different colours and lenses to boot.
Aqua Sphere goggles are also available locally from Bannatynes Heath club on centrum 100 Retail Park, Wellington Road, Burton on Trent.
