Zeal Optics Helix review

Zeal Optics is another new brand for us. First time I came across this brand was when I was reading a race report from the great Ultra runner Anton Krupicka. When checking out ZEAL website, I realized that this brand has a lot to offer, both for endurance sports and casual wearing. Zeal also make goggles for mountain sports.  

Overall Rating: Excellent 

Helix - Clear Blue Gloss / Copper

Fit: Very flexible and light, these glasses only touch on the nose an ears. These had a great fit for my face, and are the least noticeable when running. Helix stay in place, during all kind of workouts and does not move around. Nosepiece and earpieces are rubberized for added comfort.

Sun Blockage: Excellent. The lenses are brown tint and provide complete coverage of the field of vision. The brown lens tint offers a soft and smooth vision. No issues with sun glare.

Venting/Antifogging: These lenses have multiple vents and are only attached to the frame at the nose. This provides excellent airflow and prevents fogging in all conditions. Even during the most humid days here in NJ, Helix has stayed fog free. 

Interchangeable Lenses: No (at least, not provided for testing)

Best For: Racing, and everyday use for sunny days. Helix is a great looking product and can be used as an everyday sunglasses as well.

Drawbacks: None

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this review sample for free. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255: “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”
