  • 5mm Yamamoto Smoothskin side panels promote hip rotation allowing for increased reach with every stroke and therefore a more efficient swim.
  • Designed as a natural feeling alternative to a pull buoy.

  • Backed by over a decade of positive reviews.

Description

Why use our buoyancy shorts? 

To improve your open water swimming technique when training in the pool.

Swimmers of all levels can benefit from using buoyancy shorts. Swimming in triathlon requires your upper body to produce the majority of your power; your legs and core must remain streamlined to prevent your upper body having to work any harder than necessary. These shorts simulate swimming in a wetsuit when you are unable to due to the heat of the water or due to pool rules. If the open water you are swimming is warm enough, you may also wish to use buoyancy shorts as an alternative to a wetsuit – they will fit comfortably over the top of a swimming costume. 

For novice and intermediate swimmers, the main obstacle to increasing swim speed is poor core support. As a result, these swimmers often find themselves dragging sinking legs through the water. Buoyancy shorts help to place the swimmer in the correct horizontal position, allowing them to focus more on arm and stroke technique. Over time, a swimmer’s body position, speed and endurance can be significantly improved by using buoyancy shorts when working on technique.
