New Wave Swim Buoy for Open Water Swimmers and Triathletes – Light and Visible Float for Safe Training and Racing – Nylon TPU
(as of Jul 20,2022 22:44:25 UTC – Details)
New Wave Swim Buoy is Brightly colored, lightweight, inflatable flotation device with a waist belt that visibly floats behind a swimmer in open bodies of water, making the swimmer more visible to lifeguards, boaters and other open water vehicles.
New Wave Swim Buoy can also be used as a flotation device, or to calm distressed swimmers.
New Wave Swim Buoy will not interfere with swimming, and now it is no longer necessary to leave valuables behind on the beach. A dry pouch on one side holds smaller items such as a wallet and keys in the medium (15L) buoy size, or larger items, shoes and clothing in the large (20L) buoy size.
New Wave Swim Buoy is excellent for open water swimmers, triathletes, or anyone else who would benefit from added confidence in the water.
What is Nylon TPU Material?
This buoy is made of high-performance durable TPU-coated Nylon Fabric. TPU stands for Thermoplastic PolyUrethane.
While the conventional swim buoys are made of PVC fabric, the TPU-coated Nylon fabric has enhanced tear and abrasion strength and is unaffected by sunscreen oils and chemicals like chlorine.
TPU fabric is will not degrade with outdoor exposure to bacteria and UV solar radiation. TPU is recyclable.
Dimensions for Large (26″ x 12″) Capacity: 20L Suggested for swimmers over 190 pounds.
Visibility in Open Water. The brightly-colored New Wave Swim Buoy is swimming safety float that exceptionally visible to boaters, jet skis, paddlers, and surfers. Improve your visibility to avoid getting decapitated by a jet ski or a speed boat. Swimmers in black wetsuits are virtually invisible in the open water – New Wave Swim Buoy will display your prominently in the murky waters of the Loch Ness Lake – even the Loch Ness Monster will not confuse you for a tasty harbor seal.
Safe Place to Float and Rest. Because of the natural buoyancy, the New Wave swimming safety float can be used as a flotation device. You have reassurance that in case you cramp up or simply need rest, you are able to grab the float.
Very light to bring with you on a paddle board or kayak trip. While the New Wave Swim Buoy does not replace personal floatation device (PFD) or a swim life vest, widely used by kayakers and standup paddle boarders (SUP’s), the New Wave Swim Buoy is very lightweight (only 10 oz) to bring along for a refreshing swim workout in the open water. Add a bike blinker inside the float and your aqua-visibility quadruples or maybe even quintuples!
Storage of Personal Items. The New Wave Swim Buoy is useful in point to point swims. Fastened to your waist by a belt with a tether line, the New Wave Swim Buoy has a storage compartment that is separate from the Inflatable Air Chamber. What do our athletes put in the buoy? Sunglasses, sunscreen, body glide, extra cap and goggles, running shoes, socks and clothes, snorkel, camera, water shoes, iPod… What would you take with you on a water-journey?
Improved Monitoring of Athletes. If you want to keep an eye on your swim buddies or make sure that other swimmers are still in the race, spectators, officials, and lifeguards alike will appreciate the ability to see the swimmers from afar with the New Wave swimming safety float. If you put your cell phone in a waterproof phone pouch, you can have your phone sharing your GPS location too to track exactly how far you swam AND to broadcast your location in the water.
