The Compressport R2 was the number one calf guard worn at the Ironman World Championships in Kona 2010. The Compressport R2 calf guard boosts your venous return, reducing the accumulation of toxins while increasing oxygenation to the muscles.

"Recovering from a calf strain. Their effect may be psychological but I have increased confidence on a hill-walk or run. Not quite as tight after 2-3 wears. Size guide was accurate."
Pros: Comfortable, High Quality, Good Fit
Cons: Expensive

A 45mm wide version of the Swan, the Swan road features the same unique fitting system, but is designed to blend better aesthetically with the narrower tyres on road bikes and sports hybrids.

"Easy to fit and remove. Keeps your back and saddle dry. Protects the guy/girl riding behind (removing your excuse to stay at the back!). Doesn't protect your brakes."

Cons: Unattractive

Utilising a unique construction of a one-piece silicone skirt and nose bridge frame combined with Aqua Sphere’s proprietary interchangeable lens retainer allows swimmers to purchase right and left high grade optical lenses to meet their specific vision.

"This does what it's supposed to and smells quite nice. The main ingredients look remarkably similar to regular emollients from the chemist for a 1/4 of the price. I'm not convinced there's much science behind 'ozonized sunflower seed oil' as a magic chafe-busting ingredient"
Pros: nice smelling
Cons: Expensive

How robust is it?

I commute 60+ miles a week on minor roads in the Lake District (lucky beggar, I know). The roads are pothole-ridden, rough and bumpy. Will this thing flap around, fall off or break (like my SKS one)?
I've been impressed so far. I site it about 1" above the wheel and I've not noticed it hit the wheel but even when 6" above the wheel, it keeps my backside dry.

The Eagle's range of antifog and scratch resistant curved lenses deliver amazing 180° visibility available off the shelf in half step increments from -1.5 to -6 diopters (prescription). To be used on with the Eagle goggles.
 

Which is the correct frame for Aqua Sphere Eagle Optical Lens?

Your website has two different Aqua Sphere Eagle Goggles. One is "Aqua Sphere Eagle Goggles with Clear and Tinted Lenses" and the other one is "Aqua Sphere Eagle Goggles with Clear Lens". Which is the correct frame for "Aqua Sphere Eagle Optical Lens"?
Both have removable lenses and can fit the optical lens. It depends if you want the 3rd option of the tinted lens as well.

Do the aqua sphere optical lenses fit aqua sphere vista goggles?

As far as I am aware, the optical lenses only fit the Aquasphere Eagle goggles
