The most innovative paddles to hit the market, loaded with cutting-edge hydrodynamic features for the elite swimmer! SMAO Paddles are the answer to the elite sprinter's need to refine the drive-in phase of the stroke, demand an aggressive entry into the water, and reinforce a high elbow catch. Utilizing bio-mimicry, the Humpback whale pectoral fin was partly inspiration behind this unique design.
Promotes an early vertical forearm that uses the entire forearm and hand during the pull. Perfecting this technique with the Bolster Paddles encourages a high elbow and will lead to more efficient swimming. The Bolster Paddles are also a great way to build upper body strength. The wide paddle design offers resistance throughout the pull and can be applied to all four strokes. Using the Bolster Paddles overtime will improve entry, catch technique, pull and recovery.
Sold as a pair. Recommended for advanced swim classes, young age-group swimmers (ages 5-10), and for swimmers of all ages as finger tip paddles.
