Carbon-Fiber Swim Goggles

Gram-counting competitive swimmers have a new goggle to drool over. The Blueseventy CarbonRZR is a to-be-released carbon-framed goggle that weighs a mere 27 grams.

It is made from a polymer that mixes a nylon compound reinforced with carbon fibers to create a “super strong” matrix. The result is a frame touted to be “six times stronger and 2.5 times lighter than traditional polycarbonate frames,” according to the company.

For lenses, the RZRs use an anti-scratch polycarbonate with fog treatment. They’re made for forward focus, but have enough side view to use your peripheral vision.

The CarbonRZR will be available in March for $100. www.blueseventy.com

this is so unnecessary. There are olympic swimmers that prefer swedish goggles ($5.00) over any goggle on the market.
Why the carbon fiber? oh I got it…it’s because goggles are so heavy anyway. Morons.

$100 for a pair of goggles? Are you kidding? Who gives a crap how light they are? The only people who would buy these are cyclists looking to feed their carbon addiction, looking for the lightest piece of gear available. Real swimmers know the deal and won’t buy into the marketing. Who’s ever weighed a pair of goggle anyway?
