      HUUB  – Kickpant

      huub-logo-latest.jpg

      A new, exclusive 3/4-style buoyancy pant that supports the hips and keeps your legs properly aligned

       

      You want your triathlon time in the water to be as smooth as possible – that was the starting point from which HUUB developed its new buoyancy pant, and designed it to keep your legs perfectly aligned in the water.

      Instead of creating a standard buoyancy pant design, which simply lifts your rear in the water, HUUB wanted to acknowledge that there was more to good body alignment than just feeling as though you are travelling higher in the water.

      Together with product development partners Swim Smooth, they set out to understand what a good swim kick felt like, and the difference between that and an inefficient kick, which results in unnecessary drag.

       

      Buoyancy shorts give a more natural feeling of buoyancy compared to a pull buoy and assist swimmers in developing their swimming with extra core support. They are often worn as open water swimmers return to the pool to provide some of the buoyancy of a wetsuit.

       

      The Product: 

      The result is the HUUB kickpant, a swim pant which not only gives you that extra buoyancy, but also actively improves your kick technique – holding your legs straighter and properly aligned. The efficiencies gained are greater than the sum of their design parts, unlocking untapped speed and efficiency through the water.

      HUUB’s three-quarter length, 5mm thick neoprene Kickpant offers much more, giving wetsuit-like swimming in the pool (without the overheating) yet at the same time helping you improve your kicking technique, further reducing drag and encouraging you to lift your legs even higher.

      An extra modular insertion over the knee actively controls your knee bend during kicking, giving a straighter leg, more akin to a ballet kick.

      By giving your this extra control over your leg kick, it means you can focus more closely on perfecting your arm action, and combining the two to achieve an optimum stroke.

      NOTE: After every use, HUUB recommends that you rinse your Kickpant thoroughly inside and out with clean, warm water and leave to dry naturally to help avoid any chlorine damage.
