Wetsuit brand HUUB continue to expand their product range of swim accessories with the release today of their Aphotic swim goggle, featuring photocromatic lenses that adjust to the light conditions.

Here is their announcement.

HUUB launch new “Photo-Chromatic” goggle – Aphotic (meaning, no light).

The ever expanding line of HUUB products have been designed through Research, Science & Reality to ensure a product that delivers performance to meet the needs of the modern triathlete and swimmer.

This latest addition further strengthens the line of Wetsuits, tri clothing and accessories from the UK's fastest growing internationally renown Company.

Possibly the most important piece of equipment come race day is your swim goggles. A piece of equipment so many of us take for granted, yet without them, all of our preparation and training is wasted. It's time to take your goggles seriously, and really understand what is needed on race day.

Wouldn't it be great if most events started in the middle of the day, the sun high, everyone warm and the light as good as it can be. Sadly the length of events and road closure timings mean a 7am start isn't out of the ordinary, and as we all know the light 30 minutes after the gun goes off is very different and even more so as the morning progresses.

Aphotic” from HUUB, our first swim goggle that gets darker or lighter through Photo-Chromatic technology during the race without you even noticing. A self regulating lens that delivers the comfort and vision needed to maximise your sighting and assist your swim.

“Photo-Chromatic” Poly Carbonate Clarity of vision aids sighting and allows you to move around obstacles and other swimmers even when you swim into the sun, or with your back to the sun, these incredible lenses adjust perfectly and take only 160 seconds to go from clear to dark delivering ultimate performance for every turn of every buoy.

Special patented photochromic dyes that cause the lens to activate, or darken, when exposed to ultraviolet rays from sunlight. When the UV light diminishes, the lenses fade back. As light conditions change, the level of tint adjusts, offering the right tint at the right time.

Available in two colours at launch, the “Aphotic” swim goggle is the first step from HUUB to “Goggle perfection” suitable for use in door and outdoor and in any light condition.

Designed to fit the face perfectly with a density of silicon and TPR matched to create a perfect fit and non pressure feel even on the most interesting of facial profiles.

For a great swim you need a comfortable fit and the ability to see as much as possible while having as much light as possible blocked out when the sun is high or water refection is optimal.

Each pair of HUUB Aphotic swim goggles comes complete with a protective clam shell case.
