Emphasizes Proper Body Alignment
The Finis Center Mount Swimmer's Snorkel is designed to fit over the face and allows a swimmer to use goggles while swimming with the snorkel. A constant supply of air means that you're able to place greater emphasis on proper body and head alignment. The center mount snorkel helps swimmers to completely relax in the water and maintain an efficiently streamline horizontal position. When your head and body are in exact alignment, your stroke's efficiency will drastically increase. Other well-known swim gear brands, such as Speedo, also offer swimmer's snorkels in their product lines. The Speedo Hydralign Center Snorkel is similar to the Finis model and can also help swimmers achieve proper body alignment.
Allows Swimmers to Fine Tune
One of the best things about the swimmer's snorkel is that it allows athletes to slow down their speed and really focus on the finer aspects of their stroke. Being able to breathe throughout the entire swim gives you the option of adjusting your stroke of choice with the pinpoint accuracy. The Finis Center Mount Swimmer's Snorkel allows you to focus on the upper and lower body movements without the interruption of rotating your head to breathe. To better work your upper and lower body while using the center mount snorkel, try some of Finis' additional training devices. The Finis Agility Paddle can help correct arm and hand positioning, while the Finis Zoomers Fit Swim Fins help create more lower body resistance for a challenging cardio workout.
Comfortable & Easy To Use
While the snorkel allows you to fine tune your stroke, the soft flexible medical grade silicone mouthpiece is sure to remain soft and comfortable during your entire swim. The swimmer's snorkel is equipped with an easy to adjust head bracket that securely stays in place during starts, sprints, and even flip turns. The Finis product also features a one-way purge valve to help swimmers clear the snorkel's barrel after submerging. The swimmer's snorkel is a versatile training tool that can be used with all four major strokes. In addition to the Center Mount Swimmer's Snorkel, Finis also produces the Freestyle Swimmer's Snorkel, which is deliberately aimed at improving freestyle form.
The AquaGear Opinion
Testers in the AquaGear pool were ready to work on their body and head alignment with the Finis Center Mount Swimmer's Snorkel. The swimmers found that the unique training device was actually quite comfortable to wear. The mouthpiece remained soft and flexible, while the barrel was streamline and didn't interfere with the natural motions of any stroke. While flip turns were quite doable, many testers thought that it might be better to slow them down a bit while wearing the center mount snorkel.
The Bottom Line
The Finis Center Mount Swimmer's Snorkel is the ideal piece of equipment for swimmers looking to perfect their stroke.
