Until now the buoyancy shorts on the market have simply lifted you higher in the water (much as a pull-buoy would) but offered you very little else to improve your swimming. The HUUB Kickpant not only lifts you higher (in fact the 3/4 length design lifts you higher than any other buoyancy short) but the clever addition of high density neoprene and modulus insertion over the knee actively controls knee bend pushing you into a straighter leg kick technique as you swim.
What's more, the Kickpant features the lower half of HUUB's clever X-O skeleton system from their full wetsuits to improve your alignment and reduce snaking through the core. The result is faster, more efficient swimming.
So if you sit in the water a little like this...
...as many strong/athletic body types do, then the new Kickpant is the perfect training tool for you to improve your swimming.
Use it regularly in your pool training over the winter to simulate swimming in your wetsuit (without overheating) and you learn a better stroke technique whilst adapting to the higher stroke rate from swimming more quickly. Don your full HUUB wetsuit on race day and you're perfectly prepared for maximum performance!
None Of The Disadvantages Of A Pull-Buoy
Training with a pull buoy also lifts the legs but it has two major disadvantages - because you have to hold your legs together to keep the buoy in place, it masks any problems with your leg kick. And secondly because you're not kicking at all, it causes your kicking muscle groups to decondition.
This is the power of the Kickpant - it lifts you up whilst allowing you to develop a natural stroke technique to get your stroke on track for next season.
