Designed with the long distance swimmer in mind, the all new Zone3 hydration buoy allows you to keep hydrated whilst swimming in open water, as well as helping improve your visibility at the same time thanks to its bright colour.
Hydration is key in all disciplines but is often overlooked in open water due to the impracticalities. This is the only style of buoy which can allow you access to regular drink during long swims which is essential to stay hydrated especially when swimming in a wetsuit. This is the only style of buoy which allows access to regular drinks breaks during long swims in open water. Most triathletes drink regularly during cycling or pool swimming – it is essential that this is maintained when open water swimming too.
The body of the tow buoy is inflated to form a donut shape with pocket on top. The specially designed 1Litre hydration reservoir sits neatly into this pocket with an extension hose and bite valve for drinking. Once inflated the buoy forms a reservoir in the middle which stores the 1 litre 0.3MM TPU bladder pack. This connects with a drinking tube with bite valve to allow quick and easy drinking of fresh water or energy drinks.
The adjustable dual belt design attaches securely around the swimmer's waist and the leash ensures that the product remains outside of ones stroke range whilst swimming.
The buoy is highly recommended to all open water swimmers who want to stay hydrated during a long swim, or anyone who wants extra visibility when open water swimming.
When the buoy is lying flat the internal area of the bag measures 48cm x 36cm.
