220 Triathlon magazine, the UK’s biggest selling triathlon magazine, have declared Swans Valkyrie goggles the Best on Test. This follows the Cutting Edge award last year for the Valkyrie MIT anticscratch lenses..
Bagging a ‘Cutting Edge’ award in our 2018 test for the same goggle with MIT (mirror insertion technology), the Valkyrie is back again this year, yet in the slightly less-expensive version without the lens tech borrowed from ski goggles. Not that we’re going to penalise this model for that, as straight out of the hard plastic case these are instantly a stand-out goggle. There’s a very secure fit with no leaking and the ultra-soft gaskets fit like a dream. The curved lenses give a wide range of vision and the size is a neat halfway house between the tiny and bigger goggles on test – small enough to feel racy and hydrodynamic, but not so small they irritate the eye socket. That mirrored tint gives good clarity in bright pools, Swan’s anti-fog tech works perfectly and the double strap has a clever single ‘snap’ adjuster for added security and fit."
Instantly a stand-out goggle. Superb fit and clarity, stylish and very comfortable, plus not too expensive"
