“The first time I used THEMAGIC5’s goggles I could not feel that I was wearing goggles. It was a surreal experience. I could feel immediately that the goggles were made for me, and that I didn’t have to strap them in as hard as I normally do. I have tried more than 30 different goggles and not one had the perfect fit for me. It’s been a compromise but it doesn’t have to be like that anymore.”

Giedrius is currently living and training in Graz, AUT, where his focus is on Tokyo 2020.
“For me, visibility is one of the most important aspects of great swimming goggles and I really like the visibility in THEMAGIC5’s goggles. I can see and feel the competitior next to me and the curved glass also allows me to see further ahead without changing my head position.”

“Since I started using THEMAGIC5’s goggles I have not felt the urge to adjust my goggles all the time. When you swim as much as I do, the irritation you get from your swimming goggles can seem as part of the game. I am happy that this problem has finally been fixed so I can focus my attention on the joy of swimming.”

He is deeply passionate about triathlon and will talk for hours if you get him started. Simon does not come from a swimming background, but he absolutely loves the challenge and enjoys stepping out of his comfort zone.
“This is the best swimming goggle I have ever tried. First time I put them on I could feel the difference in comfort and when I got in the water I was happy to see that no water was leaking into the goggles. Like most athletes I have been through many different goggles trying to find a pair that fit. With THEMAGIC5’s goggles that search is over.”

“I love how simple it is. I scan myself with my phone and shortly after I get a pair of custom fitted goggles - so cool! I think the big difference is in the details. Now I don’t have to worry about my goggles anymore in training and racing. Instead, I can focus on my technique and the joy of swimming.”

“Compared to normal goggles already on the market you feel a difference throughout the whole process. First, you scan your face. How cool is that? The goggles are made to fit you and only you. Secondly, when you get the goggles you can feel the quality of the product. Wearing the goggles feels completely different than any other goggles I've used in the past. No sharp edges, no pain, and no discomfort when you wear them for longer periods of time.”
