To ensure that your session goes swimmingly, your goggles must be used properly, i.e. fitted and adjusted in the best possible way.
To help you with this, Nabaiji is here to give you its top tips on how to use your swimming goggles, for a session without any disruptions!
2. Adjusting Your Swimming Goggles
For optimal swimming comfort, it is important to adjust your swimming goggles to fit your face shape and based on how they feel. The nose bridge and adjustable straps allow the lenses to create a suction effect and not let any water seep in as you swim.
After adjusting, place your goggles on your face and position the head strap at an angle of approximately 45° from the top of your head. This will prevent the goggles from moving during your session.
Important: do not overtighten the head strap as this can cause discomfort and leave marks around your eyes.
If, however, your swimming goggles continue to do as they please, here is a simple trick used by competitive swimmers:
Put on your first cap and your goggles as usual, then add a second cap that will hold the head strap of the swimming goggles in place. It's as simple as that!
3. Fogging on Swimming Goggles
A recurring problem for any swimmer, fogging on the lenses of swimming goggles can be uncomfortable or even restrictive in some cases.
But how to solve this problem?
The first thing NOT to do is rub your lenses, whether with your fingers, a cloth or anything else. This would only make things worse, since you would deteriorate the thin film of anti-fog treatment present on Nabaiji swimming goggles. Do not fall into this vicious foggy circle!
If your session becomes tiresome due to the appearance of fog on your swimming goggles, simply take them off and dip them in the water. In doing so, you will get rid of that annoying fog without damaging your swimming goggles.
Please note: Even when impeccably used, maintained and stored, swimming goggles wear out and lose their effectiveness. So do not blame yourself unnecessarily... And do not hesitate to replace them as needed, so that your enjoyment of swimming does not suffer!
