Product Description

The shorts are designed as an alternative to a 'pullbuoy'. They give a more natural feeling of buoyancy and allow the swimmers additional trunk support. The latest version of these shorts offers a more comfort focused waistband and updated graphics.

"The Originals" are made from high quality SmoothSkin neoprene in and are sewn and bonded in the same way as a triathlon wetsuit. The shorts are made of 3 mm neoprene in the middle and 5 mm neoprene on the sides. The 3 mm provide additional buoyancy, while the 5 mm side inserts ensure a good rotation of the hips with every pull.

For beginners or advanced swimmers, the main factor that prevents them from swimming faster is the lack of stability in the torso and leg impact. For beginners or advanced swimmers, the main factor that prevents them from swimming faster is the lack of core stability and leg kick. Their arm strength and technique is good, but because they are not lying horizontally on the water surface, they create a lot of water resistance and therefore 'dead weight', which makes efficient swimming difficult.

With the swim pants the swimmer can get more used to swimming in the correct horizontal and streamlined position, so that he starts to form a "neural pattern" of how he should feel in the water. This allows the swimmer to concentrate on a more effective leg stroke and a better forward glide with each stroke of the arm, without the feeling of "sinking legs".

With the additional buoyancy support the swimmer can also concentrate more on the technique of his arm stroke without the constant struggle of keeping his hips and legs in a high position in the water. The results have shown that over time the position, speed and endurance of a swimmer can be significantly increased by training with the neoprene pants.

Suitable for every triathlete who wants to refine his swimming technique in open water in a pool. Swimming in a wetsuit during a triathlon is quite different from swimming without a wetsuit during a swim race. Most of your strength must come from your upper body, while your legs and torso provide the necessary control. These shorts will help you develop your open water swimming technique while you are in the pool where wearing a full wetsuit would either be too hot or prohibited by the lifeguards.

For use in open water training or races as an alternative to swimming in a full wetsuit (if the weather is warm enough!)

This product has received hundreds of positive reviews from swimmers who have experienced significant improvements in body position, speed and endurance through training with the wetsuit.
