ELITE EQUIP / Lifebuoy & training equip


Training and safety for open water swimmers

Elite Equip is a training product and a life buoy in one.
The unique open water buoy brings the personal training goal and the necessary safety in the water into harmony. Through its training function it strengthens muscle development and promotes learning the correct swimming technique.

The product mainly consists of a soft and flexible foam made of recycled plastic.
Only this material allows the swim body sufficient buoyancy for safety and the ability to bend for the greatest possible training effect.
