The SWING is a legend. A living legend. Both in cycling and on the track. The most popular eyewear of the 80s is still here. And rightly so. The unique design, functionality, and high lens quality are age-old indicators of quality – and also the recipe for success for each new pair of goggles.
The SWING is back as the 5W1NG. The 5W1NG CM is equipped with a ceramic lens that provides 100% protection from UV rays. A Fogstop coating on the inside prevents the lens from misting up. The perforations on the upper edge of the lens provide great ventilation to the glasses and create a cool retro look. With the headband that can be locked into three angles of inclination and malleable nose pads, the 5W1NG can be individually adjusted to the face and for any intended purpose. The 5W1NG’s unique design is polarising, avant-garde, and inspiring. Simply legendary.

Fogstop is a coating applied to the inside of the lens. It is not smooth but rough – seen through a microscope it looks quite fissured. This makes it impossible for moisture droplets to form a covering layer, i.e. to mist up the lens, impairing visibility. This could only occur if the humidity level was such that all the fissures are filled with water. But before this can happen, the stored moisture actually condenses, keeping the lens clear.
