Speedo SMAO Paddles
Scalloped outer edges, like the Humpback Whale's fin, create greater surface area for water to pass over versus a smooth, straight edge. This technology creates enhanced propulsion, allowing the swimmer to pull more water during sprint drills. Lateral edge openings that are larger on the bottom-side and smaller on the top side. This creates a valve effect, in which water is captured on the underside and forced through the smaller opening. Thus, more resistance and buoyancy is created. Channels on the bottom of the paddles help guide water in the proper direction and toward the Blow Valves. The Flow Channels allow the paddle to move smoothly through the water. The Thumb Garage reinforces proper thumb position and allows greater control on the recovery phace of the stroke. The Thumb Garage allows the swimmer to use the paddles without either strap if desired. Extended forearm section prevents wrist joint flexion. By creating a stable plane between the hand and forearm, the swimmer reinforces proper hand and elbow positioning. Injection Molded EVA (IMEVA) Foam. Adjustable straps.
SMALL = Female (Moderate Resistance)
