New Backstroke Starting Ledge Models now available:

The new Patented Anti Wave Backstroke Start Ledges range provide a durable and easy to use Adjustable Ledge for swimmers to undertake performance backstroke starts in both training and competition.

Two Backstroke Start Ledge models are now available; the Track Start Ledge Velcro Model (shown above) and the Backstroke Handle Model (shown below).

The Track Start Ledge Velcro model attaches to the rear of the TrackStart Wedge via 3M Velcro Attachments, and the height of the ledge in the water is easily adjusted by movement of the position of the TrackStart ledge on the blocks.

The Backstroke Handle model (above) is fixed onto the front of the Backstroke Handles, and the height of the Ledge in the water is adjusted by a durable and easy to use Marine Stayput system with three possible height positions as per current FINA regulations.

Designed for Competition and Training:

Both models are produced in Australia, and feature heavy duty nylon straps load rated to 13kN, custom Anti-slip traction surfaces, and are FINA/LEN compliant for use in top competition (as used at FINA 2019 WCH event).

The Backstroke Ledges are designed and produced in Australia in close collaboration with the Australian Backstroke swim team and top level Australian coaches. The ledges are simple to install and adjust by the swimmer or coach while in the pool or on the pool deck.

Both models of the Ledges lock securely into place once set, and are quickly removed from the Block when used in competition or training.

Anti Wave Starting Blocks:

Since 1972 Anti Wave has been at the forefront of Starting Block innovation and development, paving the road ahead for increased start times for top performance competition swimmers, and also providing a range of quality, top value starting block options for general training and club use.

First used at the 1936 Olympics in Berlin Germany, for may years Starting Blocks were simple box platforms which the swimmers began their swim. Since then, these platforms have undergone important and marked changes in design, materials and functionality.

Arguably the single most important and progressive innovation for starting blocks took place with Anti Wave’s development of the Start Block Track Start system in the early 2000’s. Inspiration was taken from track and field competition, and introduced into starting blocks through an angled and adjustable wedge at the rear of the Starting Block, from which swimmers push off from with their rear foot.

The Anti Wave Starting Block Moveable Track Start System was first developed in 2002. Anti Wave produced the first ever Track Start Block for Olympic competition at Beijing 2008 WaterCube venue.

The Movable Track Start System has now become the industry standard design for competition starting blocks around the world, and the design feature has been taken up by many starting block makers internationally.

Anti Wave are proud to have lead the way in world wide Starting Block innovation and development.

Anti Wave now export the SuperBlock 800 (left below) and SuperBlock 650 (middle below) and Anti Block 600 models (right below) around the world via an extensive network of Resellers and Licensees, ensuring the best product availability and value to all customers.
