2012 Triathlete Buyer’s Guide: Goggles

5. Tyr Nest Pro $20

This goggle style was inspired by the bird’s nest-like architecture of the Beijing Olympics’ main stadium and features a crisscross design element ringing the lenses. The Nest Pro reliably creates a watertight seal without the commonly resultant raccoon-eyes effect. A highly durable silicone strap keeps the goggles firmly in place, and the wider lenses allow for expanded peripheral vision. The tinted lenses minimize the sun’s glare and protect the eyes against UV rays. Tyr.com
