BUT we've heard from some swimmers who would prefer a conventional jammer-length buoyancy short and so we have developed the new HUUB Sphere buoyancy short:
As they are cut above the knee, the Sphere shorts obviously don't contain the active knee of the full Kickpant but they do still feature the X-O Skeleton stiffening system for improved kick alignment and contain full NBR panels for much greater buoyancy than a conventional neoprene short.
We have the new Sphere shorts in stock and on sale on our website here:
If you've been hanging out on any swimming groups on facebook recently, you might have seen this animated swimmer:
What's Wrong With This Animated Swimmer??
Without being rude, your first impression is probably that he's a little jerky compared to our own Mr Smooth freestyle visualisation (available as a free app on our website)! Aside from the jerkiness, the animation contains a number of elements which you definitely don't want to copy in your own swimming - in fact they might even give you a nasty shoulder or elbow injury as a result.
Our Head Coach Paul Newsome explored the pitfalls of this animation during a recently video analysis session of a very Smooth swimmer Christopher ### which you can watch in full here:
As you'd expect from someone with a significant swimming background, Christopher has a very nice stroke but has a few elements to tidy up in his stroke.
Although quite long, this is a great video to watch through as Paul explores good catch and pull technique - there's plenty to gain for your own swimming here including tips on how to tune up your own catch and pull technique.
