The Speedo Competition II Kickboard takes the concept of a traditional kickboard and adds a few bonus features to make the training device one of a kind. The board helps swimmers strengthen legs, add versatility to workouts, stabilize core and upper body positioning, and can even help with proper body alignment. It truly is an all-in-one piece of equipment.
You're going to love the results you'll get from this high-performance training board. Shaped more streamline than other kickboards, the Competition II cuts through the water better, and can do so in a wide variety of positions. The added cut-out hand holds give swimmers a better grip on the board while training. Because of its design, the Speedo board is ideal for single arm and sidekick workouts. And while your legs will get the workout of a lifetime, the ergonomic design helps reduce shoulder stress and can even gently promote proper body alignment. It's perfect for all ages and ability levels and has the ability to grow with you as your swimming workouts advance over time.
If your child swimmer loves the look and feel of the Speedo kickboard, consider picking them up a pint-sized version of this amazing training device. The Speedo Competition II Jr. Kickboard (now discontinued) draws on the same principles as the original, but is slightly smaller to fit kids' and teens' body frames. Because the product is scaled down, it does not include the hand holds as the larger version does, but it does perform up to always-impressive Speedo standards. The beloved brand also has the standard Junior kickboard, which is a traditional kickboard made from the same durable EVA foam as the Competition II.
The Speedo Competition II Kickboard is constructed out of durable closed-cell EVA foam. This material is non-waterlogging and known for its endurance over time. Plus, the heavy-duty construction is, in fact, extremely lightweight. This makes it the perfect tag-along gear to any training session, no matter where your swimming takes you. The training board is available in either blue or black. While there is nothing boring about working out with such a versatile board, if you feel that the colors are a bit too bland for your personal taste, try spicing up your sessions in the pool with Speedo's Tye-Dye Kickboard. This traditionally designed board is made from slightly more malleable foam and decorated with a funky tye-dye design!

The AquaGear Opinion
The AquaGear testers couldn't wait for the chance to try out this versatile training kickboard. Immediately, the swimmers commented on how thick and durable the material was. The foam felt extremely tough and hard, which was a plus when in the water. And because the kickboard has such a streamline shape, it was able to perform perfectly in a number of various positions. This makes the Competition II Kickboard a truly multifaceted training board. The testers also noticed that the kickboard had comfortable grips and aligned the body just right when their forearms rested on the top of the board.
The Bottom Line
See how the Competition II's streamline design and comfortable hand grips can take your swimming sessions to the next level. This high-performance board is a must have in your swim gear bag!
