FINIS’ yellow Snorkel has become increasingly more present on pool decks. The center-mount #originalsnorkel has been used for over a decade by some of the fastest swimmers on the planet such as Olympic gold-medalist, Anthony Ervin. And what makes this product such a staple for athletes of all ability? Why is removing the need for oxygen such a benefit to swimmers?
The answer is balance. Allowing the head to fall into a neutral position in the water will encourage the athlete to become more relaxed and to focus on other aspects of the stroke. Younger swimmers would otherwise contort their bodies out of alignment to grab a breath, while more experienced athletes benefit from the ability to “see” their catch and from the added hypoxic value during a swimming workout.
The Swimmer’s Snorkel is now available in FINIS Yellow and in Pink. The Jr Snorkel uses the same head bracket with a slightly shorter tube, and the Youth Snorkel includes a smaller mouth piece and a comfortable strap to secure the Snorkel in place.
