“2x not only signifies two pounds of weight but also the fact that it’s twice as fast as anything else out there with twice the anti-fog capability and twice the comfort, but for the same low price as the leaders.” said James Fike, founder of Fike Swim. “We used osmium, the densest metal on earth, to pack the weight into a small, sleek package and high-power CO2 lasers to craft the shape.”
The AR2x has been in development for nearly two years, with early prototypes ranging from one to four pounds. “Four pounds was a little heavy, particularly for kids under 8, but we hit the sweet spot at two pounds. This is more than a goggle, it’s a game changer.”
The weight of the AR2x has several benefits:
- Increases speed off the block and walls
- Pulls the head down into alignment with the spine
- Builds neck strength
