The Buoyancy Shorts were first developed by Zone3 back in 2007. As the original inventors of this product, Zone3 thought it was appropriate to call their 5:3mm thickness, smoothskin shorts ‘The Originals’. They have eight years of fantastic customer reviews behind them and have helped thousands of swimmers to improve both their body position in the water and swim technique.
The shorts are designed as an alternative to a pull buoy. They give a more natural feeling of buoyancy and allow swimmers to develop their swimming with extra core support. The latest version of these shorts offers a more comfort focused waistband and updated graphics.
‘The Originals’ are made from top quality smoothskin neoprene and are stitched and bonded just the same as a triathlon wetsuit. The shorts are designed using 3mm neoprene down the centre and 5mm neoprene down the sides. The 3mm provides the additional buoyancy whilst the 5mm side panels complement this by promoting hip rotation through each stroke.
What makes this product different:
- Zone3 are the original designers of this product concept.
- Helped 1000’s of swimmers improve their swim technique and speed.
- New comfort focused waistband.
The shorts serve three main purposes:
1. For novice or intermediate level swimmers the major factor which prevents them from swimming faster is the lack of core stability and leg kick. Their arm strength and technique are good but because they are not horizontal on the top of the water they create a lot of drag and ‘dead weight’ which makes it much harder to swim efficiently.
With the buoyancy shorts the swimmer can get more used to swimming in the correct horizontal and streamlined position, so they start to build a ‘neural pattern’ of how they should feel in the water. This also allows the swimmer to concentrate on making a more effective leg kick and better forward glide with each stroke, without that ‘sinking leg’ feeling.
With the extra buoyancy support, the swimmer can also focus more on the technique of their arm stroke, without the constant battle to keep the hips and legs in a high position in the water.
Results have shown that over time a swimmer’s body position, speed and endurance can be significantly increased by training with buoyancy shorts.
2. Suitable for any level of triathlete who wants to refine their open water swimming technique whilst in a pool. Swimming in a wetsuit during a triathlon is very different to swimming without a wetsuit during a swimming race. The majority of your power needs to derive from your upper body whereas your legs and core provide the essential control. These shorts help develop your open water swimming technique whilst in the pool, where wearing a full wetsuit would either be too hot or banned by the life-guards.
3. For use in open-water training or races as an alternative to swimming in a full wetsuit (when the weather is warm enough!).
This product has received hundreds of positive reviews from swimmers who have seen significant improvements in body position, speed and endurance by training with buoyancy shorts. Despite the great feeling they give a swimmer in the water it’s best to only use these shorts during certain swim sets rather than the full session.

Transformed my swimming

These are a great product, well made and comfortable. And they have transformed my swimming, giving me extra buoyancy in the butt and keeping my body horizontal when swimming. Instead of wasting a huge amount of energy just lifting my butt and legs I can now focus on my technique and efficiency.

Fully satisfied. It definitely improve swimming position. No more lower back pain allowing longer swim sessions.

Excellent shorts !! Improved my hip fluctuation. With the dragging down, I'm making less force. Swimming was enjoyable !!

I love my zone 3 buoyancy shorts. I was using a pull buoy and these are much better since I can attempt to kick. Hopefully with persistance I can swim the necessary distances for longer swimming experience. Highly recommended. The seller earns 5 stars for on time delivery and a great price. The fit was as expected. I am 6 ft and 160 lbs. The medium was the correct choice. I will buy again from the seller

Terry - 20/12/2018
I am delighted at the product of the 5/3 buoyancy shorts. To swim in them is great. They are comfortable and fit well. The buoyancy level is perfect and swimming in the ocean as I do gives me so assistance, I am 76 years of age and still an active ocean swimmer. This new device is great for me. Add to this the service of the company was 100% as was the speed in delivery. Spain to Adelaide, Australia in 3 days was incredible.

I’ve just purchased the Zone3 Buoyancy Shots and was amazed with their ability to ‘lift’ me both in the Pool and in my first race on the weekend. I’m much faster and find they are very comfortable. Thanks. Fantastic product

I only used it once and I realized immediately that it was really this shorts I needed !! Excellent flotation, great mobility, sturdy and with the right size for me, I really enjoyed it! Thank you

This is an excellent equipment for training and crossings. It makes your hip float releasing and easing the hitting of the legs. It can also help train hip and trunk twisting to achieve better stretching of the strokes. One must take greater care to be neoprene, because scraping on something pointed can tear, identical to the care of beoprene clothes for triathlon ... Good for training in the pool of who is starting and also for who already participates in crossings in the sea or in lakes.
