FINIS paddles have gained world-wide recognition, not for what they have, but for what they have elected to go without.
The elastic bands that are included in traditional hand paddles are used to keep the paddle attached to the hand throughout the swimming set, regardless of whether or not the swimmer is using proper stroke technique.
A strapless design requires the user to maintain pressure against the palm of the hand throughout the entire pulling motion. Any loss of this force will result in the paddle sliding away from the palm, providing instant feedback to the user.
Not only do strapless paddles promote the use of perfect swimming technique, they will prevent the swimmer from generating large amounts of force while out of position, greatly reducing the risk of shoulder related injuries.
Finis strapless paddles are a safe and efficient way to get the most of your time in the water.
The ergonomically advanced design of the Agility Paddles helps teach swimmers the correct palm positive hand position. Due to the paddles strapless design, incorrect technique will cause the paddle to fall off the swimmer’s hand.
The Agility Paddles’ convex design also promotes an early catch and reminds the swimmer to maintain an early vertical forearm position. This versatile paddle works for all four strokes and accommodates most hand sizes.
Not only are the Agility Paddles durable, but the absence of straps makes them more comfortable for the swimmers and easier for coaches, who no longer have to hassle with broken straps during practice.
