Product Details

The new Elite Pullkick in red from Speedo is a swim training aid that will give you optimum buoyancy, improve your strength and swim technique. This excellent design doubles as a pull buoy and kickboard giving you two training aids in one and gives superior wrist support. When using as a pull buoy, hold high up between your legs to give your body buoyancy in the water and to immobilise your legs. If using as a kickboard, hold in front of you to immobilise your arms giving your lower body a specific workout.

Features

Benefits of a pull buoy:

  • Improves Body Position: The buoyancy of the pull buoy brings your hips higher up in the water and teaches your body to swim more horizontally and streamlined, which will increase your efficiency, speed and endurance. Maintains balance so that you can focus on your arm stroke.
  • Improves breathing technique: Helps you to develop a bilateral breathing rhythm as you swim more relaxed and easily when you are not kicking.
  • Builds upper body strength: As your legs are not being used, you isolate your upper body muscles and, over time, will increase strength in your upper body. You can use a pull buoy in conjunction with hand paddles for a more challenging work out for your arms.

Benefits of a kickboard:

  • Improve balance and body position in the water: Rest your arms on the board and press your armpits down to bring your hips up in the water - if you just hold the kickboard your head will be up which makes your hips lower in the water creating drag. You should kick from your hips for a nice big powerful kick. Ankles should stay below the surface to create more leverage and forward motion.
  • Practice your kick stroke: Using a kickboard isolates your legs so that you can concentrate on your technique as you are not having to think about your arms. Some swimmers rely too much on their arms and drag their legs through the water. This will make you swim slowly and tire you out quickly.
  • Improve leg strength: using a kickboard gives your legs an isolated work out and will build up lower body strength and endurance.

    This product is amazing! I have only recently brought this product but I've managed to try it out quite a bit. I believe that as a kick board it is very effective and a lot better than your normal and standard kick board. It may seem rather weird at first when you use it but you will get to grips with it straight away. Another thing I like about this product is that it can also be used as a pull buoy and so in my opinion that makes this product even better as it is a lot more compact and easier to carry around rather than having a separate kick board and a separate pull buoy. So this is a great 2 in 1 item! However, the only negative thing I could say about this product is that it may take some getting used to as a pull buoy as it's not like your standard "figure of eight" shape pull buoy. Although saying that I got to grips with it very quickly and in my personal opinion it is just as comfortable as your standard pull buoy. I honestly recommend that you at least give it a try! - You won't be disappointed.

    This is a great 2 in 1 item and the shaped area for arms on one side is great. I think it's better than the figure of 8 style pull buoys but it has a tendency to want to escape!

    If you don
    If you don't want to haul around separate kickboard and pullbuoy, this is a very good, very portable compromise. The rough surface gives you good grip in the water. It is an excellent pullbuoy -- I found it more comfortable than the figure-8-shaped ones -- but harder work as a kickboard because less buoyant and because it's too narrow for you to keep your hands at shoulder width. But very, very convenient if you don't haul around a kit bag.

    A pullbouy does fit a bit...
    A pullbouy does fit a bit better, but this is a great compromise. Smaller than you think, so fits in you bag, and saves you hunting round at the pool to find some eqipment

    Great little kickboard
    Great little kickboard. I'm struggling to use it as a pull buoy (a bit too buoyant!) but I think that's my inexperience rather than an issue with the product.
