Head’s new Tiger LSR+ goggles use bi-silicone technology to ensure a super-soft fit with no leaking or fogging. Goggles typically use a harder material around the frame and a soft silicone around the eyes, but here Head get around that problem by developing a moulded gasket with two types of silicone. The result is a soft goggle ideal for pool or open water.
Although you can’t see it, the lenses follow the natural shape of the eye to provide great peripheral vision, while the buckle design is unobtrusive yet intuitive. The goggles themselves are large enough to offer a sense of protection in open water but small enough to be suited to pool training.
We tested a clear lens but the goggles are also available in smoke and mirrored lenses, with eight choices of frame colours. All come equipped with anti-fog, UV protection and a soft storage pouch.
