The Speedo Speed Socket has received an upgrade. Welcome the Speed Socket 2.0. Retaining its classic Goggles Optics Inner Eye Fit, the 2.0 has merged with the Fastskin family to deliver the increased peripheral vision.
Since I started swimming a year ago, I tried many different types of goggles unable to find one that felt comfortable. Then a swimmer on the McGill Varsity team suggested I try the Speed Socket. I finally found a goggle that fit well and made me feel comfortable in the water. It’s comfortable inner fit means that the gasket rests in the eye socket. With its hypo-allergenic seals, it keeps the water out and is comfortable to wear.
When testing the 2.0’s, I was met with that same comfortable fit and improved vision. The mirrored lens does wonders in reducing the glare of the pool lights, while also delivering a clear view of the surroundings.
Listed as a high-performance goggle, the Speed Socket 2.0 is excellent for training in your local pool and delivers exceptional vision, even in the open water. The double strap, a traditional goggle feature, still does the trick when it comes to keeping your goggles secure.
When racing, there’s no worse feeling than having foggy goggles during the swim. There’s already enough stress before and during the swim. The last thing you want to be thinking about is, whether your goggles are clear. The anti-fog lenses on the 2.0 work and they feature UV protection. This means you can be confident that when the sun rises in your next triathlon, your eyes aren’t going to be blinded.
The Speed Socket 2.0 comes in four different colours: Vapor (pictured and tested), Dazzling Blue, Fiery Red and Black/Silver.
