Designed with the long distance swimmer in mind, this buoy allows a swimmer to keep hydrated whilst swimming in open water whilst improving the visibility of the swimmer at the same time.
This is the only style of buoy which can allow you access to regular drink during long swims which is essential to stay hydrated especially when swimming in a wetsuit. If you drink regularly during cycling or pool swimming then you should keep that habit and transfer it to open water swimming as well.
It is essential to stay hydrated, especially when swimming in a wetsuit. This is the only style of buoy which allows access to regular drinks breaks during long swims in open water. Most triathletes drink regularly during cycling or pool swimming – it is essential that this is maintained when open water swimming too.
Once inflated the buoy forms a shape in the centre suitable for a 750ml – 1litre drinks bottle and has a half cover to allow a snug fit. However, this buoy should not be used in waves where the buoy can be flipped resulting in the drinks bottle falling out.
The adjustable dual belt design attaches securely around the swimmer’s waist and the leash ensures that the product remains outside of one’s stroke range whilst swimming.
The buoy is highly recommended to all open water swimmers who want to stay hydrated during a swim, or anyone who wants extra visibility when swimming in the open water.
When the buoy is lying flat the internal area of the bag measures 48cm x 36cm.
