ZONE3 Unisex Buoyancy Shorts


The Zone 3 buoyancy shorts are designed to give an alternative to a pull buoy and give a more natural feeling of buoyancy.Made from top quality smoothskin neoprene and stitched and bonded just the same as a Triathlon wetsuit. Designed using 3mm neoprene down the centre and 5mm neoprene down the sides. The 3mm provides additional buoyancy whilst the 5mm side panels complement this by promoting hip rotation through each stroke.The shorts serve three main purposes:1. 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 is 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.Results have shown that over time a swimmer?s body position, speed and endurance can be significantly increased. The shorts are best to be used only during certain swim sets rather than the full session.2. For any level of triathlete who wants to train 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.3. For use in open-water training o

    Outstanding!, June 26, 2013
    This review is from: ZONE3 Unisex Buoyancy Shorts
    I got these in the mail today and was so excited I went straight to the pool. The fit was perfect, not too restricting at the same time letting in very little water. The bouyancy was amazing. I had a near perfect body position and was able to rotate through the stroke very well. The seller states the neoprene is chlorine resistant so it should hold up with many hours in the pool or open water. I am a triathlete who struggles with the swim and refuses to do open water races without a wetsuit. I have been using a pull buoy and fins to supplement my pool training but find I can’t get good core rotation with the pool buoy and the fins just wear me out. Now, the pull buoy and the fins are getting retired. These shorts are my go to swim training tool! The seller has a good return policy and even included a small treat in the package! Now that’s customer service.

    Great training tool. The extra buoyancy allowed me to focus on form, balance, and proper breathing. If you are having breathing issues, these shorts provide just the right balance and buoyancy to allow for proper form and relaxation. Great product!

    Just finished doing laps in the pool and these shorts worked great. They helped keep my body in the correct position an fit really well. I can not find a negative thing to say about them, I just wish I would have gotten them sooner.
