Zone3 The Originals 5/3mm Buoyancy Shorts
For novice or intermediate level swimmers the major factor which prevents them from swimming faster is the lack of core stability and leg kick. Their arm strength and technique are good but because they are not horizontal on the top of the water they create a lot of drag and ‘dead weight’ which makes it much harder to swim efficiently. With the buoyancy shorts the swimmer can get more used to swimming in the correct horizontal and streamlined position, so they start to build a ‘neural pattern’ of how they should feel in the water. This also allows the swimmer to concentrate on making a more effective leg kick and better forward glide with each stroke, without that ‘sinking leg’ feeling.
With the extra buoyancy support, the swimmer can also focus more on the technique of their arm stroke, without the constant battle to keep the hips and legs in a high position in the water. Results have shown that over time a swimmer’s body position, speed and endurance can be significantly increased by training with buoyancy shorts. These Zone3 Originals Buoyancy Shorts incorporate 5mm Yamamoto smoothskin side panels and 3mm on the front and rear panels.
Suitable for any level of triathlete who wants to refine their open water swimming technique whilst in a pool. Swimming in a wetsuit during a triathlon is very different to swimming without a wetsuit during a swimming race. The majority of your power needs to derive from your upper body whereas your legs and core provide the essential control. These shorts help develop your open water swimming technique whilst in the pool, where wearing a full wetsuit would either be too hot or banned by the life-guards
For use in open-water training or races as an alternative to swimming in a full wetsuit (when the weather is warm enough!). This product has received hundreds of positive reviews from swimmers who have seen significant improvements in body position, speed and endurance by training with buoyancy shorts. Despite the great feeling they give a swimmer in the water it’s best to only use these shorts during certain swim sets rather than the full session.
Neoprene shorts instead of a pull buoy? The innovative ideas just keep coming from Brit brand Zone3. These shorts place you into a position similar to wearing a wetsuit - just as a pull buoy might - but without the restriction of holding something between your legs. This allows you to spend time practising your slower wetsuit kick and perfecting the timing of your wetsuit stroke while in the pool.
Buoyancy is provided by 5mm neoprene on the sides, and 3mm neoprene on both front and back to aid with hip rotation, with the chlorine resistant smoothskin neoprene stitched and bonded the same way as any wetsuit. You wouldn't want to wear them for the whole session but to put them on for a pull set will encourage you to relax and improve your kick the wetsuit way.
