Speedo has come up with yet another way to incorporate cutting edge design into its swim gear. The Speedo Finger Paddles Biofuse technology allows for a more organic-feeling flex and increased feel for the water. This is due, in part, to the hand paddles’ softer edges. These finger paddles were designed to help swimmers become faster, stronger and more dynamic in the water by helping them focus on their stroke technique. If you happen to be in the market for a more traditional styled paddle, you might want to try the Engine Hand Paddles. Like the Biofuse, they feature a comfortable silicone hand strap for extended wear. And even though these full-hand paddles displace more water, their hole-covered design allows swimmers to really feel the water when training. The Aqua Sphere Ergo Flex Paddles are also full-handed paddles, but feature a flexible design for greater mobility. This, along with their rounded deign, gives them the ability to work with most strokes.
They’re Great For…
The Speedo Biofuse Finger Paddles are ideal for improving swimmers’ feel for the water. Recommended for intermediate to advanced swimmers, the hand paddles give a reference for hand positioning when pulling through the water. They work especially well with the breaststroke and sculling. While other, full-handed swim paddles might work against certain strokes and drills, the Biofuse Finger Paddles give swimmers a chance to work on the finer aspects of their stroke technique. Use them to develop speed, strength and efficiency in the water. Add them into your training routine to see what they can do for you and your stroke of choice. Pair them with the Speedo Vanquisher 2.0 Goggles, which fit securely and comfortably during endurance or extended practice sessions.
The Speedo Biofuse Finger Paddles are available only in one-size-fits-all and come standard in a black, red, and grey design. The swim paddles come with adjustable silicone straps for that perfect, long lasting, comfortable fit each and every session. To keep the Speedo Biofuse Finger Paddles looking great and lasting for as long as possible, keep them stored in Speedo’s own Mesh Equipment Bag. Its breathable design allows an ample amount of air circulation to properly dry all your swim gear while stored.
The AquaGear Opinion
Testers in the AquaGear pool strapped on the finger paddles and got to work. They immediately remarked how comfortable and ergonomic the Biofuse paddles felt on the hands and fingers. The material remained soft against the skin and could definitely be worn for endurance or long distance swims. Even though the paddles only cover the fingers of the hand, they still produced a great deal of forward propulsion for their size. Testers found that the finger paddles were ideal for breaststroke practice, as well as general strength training.
The Bottom Line
If you’re looking for a hand paddle that’s a little different from the norm, then try out the Speedo Biofuse Finger Paddles today. No matter if you’re a freestyler or avid breaststroker, these technique-enhancing paddles can help you become more efficient in the water.
