We have created a system of weights to complement VoloBlades*. ZB weights are sold as an accessory to VoloBlades. In order to use them they must be paired with VoloBlades*.
ZB weights are made from an industrial grade high density felt that absorbs water, and adds weight to our paddles during above water recovery. Underwater, ZB weights maintain a neutral buoyancy and provide drag without adding any effective weight -- just like DragSox!
VoloBlades* plus ZB weights create a cycle of weight and drag throughout a swimmer's stroke, making for a great upper-body power training tool while promoting excellent technique.
Are there Different sizes?
Yes, ZB weights come in 2 sizes, 1/4" and 1/2" thickness. The 1/4" is about 3oz when wet, 1/2" is about 6oz.
Shipping: USPS Priority Mail. 2-3 business days within the USA, 3-4 weeks for International.
*Note: ZB weights are sold as an accessory to VoloBlades. In order to use them they must be paired with VoloBlades, AquaVolo's palm paddles. VoloBlades are sold separately.
How to care for ZB weights: Rinse or soak ZB weights in clean fresh water after each use. If you have a suit spinner at your pool, put your ZBs in there and give them a spin. Hang them from a clothesline or hanger by hooking them through one of the bottom holes to let them dry.
