Zone3 Buoyancy Shorts
These unique buoyancy shorts are the only type available on the market. Designed to give an alternative to a pull buoy and give a more natural feeling of buoyancy.
They are made from top quality smoothskin neoprene and are stitched and bonded just the same as a Triathlon wetsuit. Designed using 3mm neoprene down the centre and 5mm neoprene down the sides. The 3mm provides additional buoyancy whilst the 5mm side panels complement this by promoting hip rotation through each stroke.

Zone3 Buoyancy Shorts – Training Benefits
- For novice or intermediate level swimmers: the major factor which prevents them from swimming faster is a lack of core stability and leg kick. Swimming strength and technique may be good in the upper body, however a huge drag caused by trailing legs slows swimmers down. By using buoyancy shorts swimmers can learn to swim in the correct position. Besides being more stramlined swimmers will start to build a “neural pattern” of how feel in the water. Furthermore swimmers leg kick technique naturally improves as a result of overall streamling. Overtime speed and ensurance improves as swimmer correct their body position in the water. Results have shown that over time a swimmer’s body position, speed and endurance can be significantly increased.Ideally swimmers will use these shorts during training sessions for specific exercises. There is no need to wear them throughout a full session.
- For any level of triathlete who wants to train their open water swimming technique whilst in a pool. Swimming in a wetsuit during a triathlon is very different to swimming without a wetsuit during a swimming race. The majority of your power needs to derive from your upper body whereas your legs and core provide the essential control. These shorts help develop your open water swimming technique whilst in the pool where wearing a full wetsuit would either be too hot or banned by the life-guards.
- For use in open-water training or races as an alternative to swimming in a full wetsuit (when the weather is warm enough!).
