A slight improvement to the Speedsocket, and still a good racing goggle.
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 11 August 2017
I already own the original Speedsockets, and they are a good racing goggle, so gave the Speedsocket 2 a try. The shape of the lens has been changed slightly, and for me this was a good thing, as it improves the field of vision. I was a little concerned that the mirror lenses (coloured) may be too dark for use in indoor pools, but they do not add a lot of tint so do not impact my vision. The coloured mirror lenses do have a bit of a rainbow effect, so the lighting in the pool can sometimes look a bit odd, but I didn't notice after a while.
A downside for me is that the nosepiece cuts into the bridge of my nose slightly, which was also an issue with the original Speedsockets, but that may be down to the shape of my nose, and I can live with it.
I haven't experienced any of the fit differences between the two versions of Speedsocket goggles that others have reported. I find that the suction on the goggles keeps them firmly in place, and I haven't had any issues with leaks. They also haven't fogged up whilst swimming at all.
