Having owned and used Zoggs Predator Flex Reactor for over 6 months now I feel that I am in a great position to give you a honest review of one of the Zoggs triathlon goggles range. I was bought these goggles as I love to open water swim and had asked for these for Christmas… CHRISTMAS… What a tool I was to ask for a pair of open water goggles in the middle of the winter. So I waited… And waited… For the sun to arrive back in to the northern hemisphere, which is a pain fully long time when you have a Christmas present to try out.
I prayed for days when the sun was up and out either before, or after work as I am fortunate to have access to an outdoor pool in the Great city if Leeds. So on those days what did I think about the Zoggs Predator Flex Reactor Goggles Titanium in the pool. Well initially having not read any wiggle reviews on these goggles I was a little shocked how quickly they fogged up. But once I had spoken to the manufacture on social media they showed me how to get the most out of this 220 Triathlon best on test product.
Then came the triathlon season. These goggles really did help me enjoy every open water training session more and more each time. On race day they always delivered to give the best visibility so sighting was a dream. Could you find a better pair of goggles in the market at the moment? I really don’t think that you will.
To the price point, yes they are more than other goggles but if you are using these for the open water sessions and race days and you want to be the best you can be as a triathlete. Then this is a must have piece of triathlon gear for your race day triathlon box. I would give these 9 out of 10 purely because of the initially fogging issues that I had and will buy another pair when these ones bite the dust. After a solid year of swimming they are showing no signs of wear so I would hope that these would last two years as long as you follow the main instruction as with ALL pairs of swimming goggles. Wash them toughly in clean water before and after every swim to get the most out of them.

UV – Taking eye protection seriously with UV protection…
Zoggs love the sun but realise the importance of protecting your eyes from harmful UV rays when swimming. For this reason they have included UV protection as a standard feature on all goggles since 1992. As well as our standard UV360, Zoggs have introduced UV400 maximum protection (blocks 99% – 100% of UVA and UVB rays) to ensure swimming is as safe as it is enjoyable.
Anti-Fog – Fogbuster
It’s not much fun swimming blind so Zoggs developed Fogbuster anti-fog which offers consistent moisture control for real clarity of vision. For extreme climate conditions Zoggs Fogbuster impregnated lenses will give extra control and give a stress free swim. The inclusion in the Zoggs Predator Flex Reactor is one of the stand out points for these swimming goggles
Panoramic vision Curved Lens Technology
