SWIM AC­CES­SORIES

Triathlon Magazine Canada - - SWIM BIKE RUN TRANSITION -

Are they toys or train­ing tools? We’ll go with the tools op­tion here. When it comes to your time spent in the pool, uti­liz­ing some of these ac­ces­sories can be a great way to im­prove your stroke and tech­nique, while mak­ing your time in the pool a bit more fun, too.

MP Strength Pad­dle

$18 Pad­dles can be a great way to im­prove your strength and pull. The Michael Phelps (MP) Strength Pad­dle is de­signed to do all that while pro­vid­ing a nat­u­ral feel in the wa­ter be­cause of the unique shape, palm sup­port and vents. The er­gonomic wrist strap and fin­ger loop are fully ad­justable and the pad­dles are avail­able in three sizes.

DARE2TRI Mach3 Tran­si­tion Back­pack

$70 De­signed to make it easy to get all your equip­ment to your next work­out or race, the Mac3 Tran­si­tion back­pack has sep­a­rate com­part­ments to hold shoes, gog­gles, your hel­met, wa­ter bot­tle, cell­phone and other equip­ment. There’s even a large wet­suit com­part­ment that will en­sure you won’t get the rest of your equip­ment wet after the work­out or race.

HUUB Big Buoy

$34 When it comes to pull buoys, this one of­fers the most buoy­ancy we’ve come across – a whop­ping 34 New­tons, which is roughly twice as much as your typ­i­cal pull buoy might of­fer. For those who find a reg­u­lar pull buoy isn’t enough, this is the an­swer that will help you work on your po­si­tion and align­ment in the wa­ter. It’s also a great way to sim­u­late the buoy­ancy you’ll get from your wet­suit, with­out hav­ing to sub­mit your suit to the chem­i­cals in a pool.
