Neoprene Buoyancy Shorts 'Premium' Aerodome Elite 5/3mm

3 reviews

We invented buoyancy shorts back in 2007 to help improve our swim technique in a natural an efficient way. The original product was made using a 5/3mm thickness smoothskin material but due to their overwhelming popularity, we have now released a more buoyant and lower drag focused design called 'The Premium Option'.

Using 3mm Yamamoto #39 SCS on the front and back panels we have been able to produce a softer, lighter and more flexible fit, while the 5mm Aerodome side panels offer 30% more buoyancy than standard neoprene.

Size guide

Neoprene Buoyancy Shorts 'Premium' Aerodome Elite 5/3mm

Key Features

  • Highly buoyant design for heavy legged swimmers.
  • 3mm Yamamoto #39 SCS front and back panels.
  • 5mm Yamamoto SCS Aerodome side panels.
  • SCS Nano coating for drag reduction.
  • New comfort focused waistband

Key Benefits:

  • Improves your body position and swim technique.
  • Enhanced core support to aid with technique development.
  • Designed as a natural feeling alternative to a pull buoy.
  • A softer, lighter and more flexible fit, that aids the swimmer with more buoyancy and hip rotation.

Description

Buoyancy Shorts serve three main purposes:

For novice or intermediate level swimmers the major factor that prevents them from swimming faster, is the lack of core stability and their leg kick. Their arm strength and technique is generally good but they have poor body positioning creating a lot of drag and 'dead weight', which makes it much harder to swim efficiently.

Buoyancy shorts place the swimmer in the correct horizontal and streamlined position, helping to build a 'neural pattern' of how they should feel in the water. This also allows the swimmer to concentrate on a more effective leg kick and glide with each stroke, without that 'sinking leg' feeling.

The extra support also allows the swimmer to focus more on their arm stroke technique.

Results have shown that over time a swimmer's body position, speed and endurance can be significantly increased by training with buoyancy shorts.

Suitable for any level of triathlete who wants to refine their open water swimming technique while 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 while 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 water is warm enough!).

Sizes available are XS, S, M, L and XL. Each set of shorts has a drawstring so they can be tightened to any waist size but we would recommend the size XS for waist sizes XS 26– 30, S for 28-31, M for 31 – 33, L for 34 – 38, XL 36 - 40 and XXL 36 - 42 in.

Love them!

Favorite pair so far. Definitely help with my lap swimming. They run small so you will have to size up.

Great trainers for tri athletes.

Nice shape and fit. Just enough buoyancy. Waistline could be more snug. Little floppy and allows air to get trapped inside even with adjusting the waist string as tight as it can be.
