Our inflatable Tow Float is in bright lime Green to increase visibility to other water users.
The Tow Float is pulled behind while swimming attached to a waist belt and short leash, and floats out of range of arms and kick zone.
The ultra-light Tow Float produces virtually zero drag and features two inflation chambers for added safety in the unlikely event that one chamber fails while in use. The efficient size and minimal drag make the Tow Float perfect for endurance competitions where Tow Floats are compulsory.
The Tow Float is made of high-quality durable PVC and includes a leash and waist strap which is adjustable.
Use the back of the valve cap to deflate.
Please note, this is not a buoyancy aid, it does not give any buoyancy whilst swimming. The tow-float floats behind the swimmer on a short leash.
Goes with my shortie wetsuit sleeves & hat! Great to rest on if you need a breather & doesn’t get in the way. Was slightly annoying in rougher sea 🌊 today when I was more jumping than proper swimming - incoming tide & wind combined - but sorted by twisting belt so it stayed on other side. Especially like red handle as can just get my fingers through it - useful entering/exiting water when waves breaking. Also some walkers yesterday said it showed up really well when I was some way off from the shore.
Very light, right size, no frills. Does not deflate while swimming like other buoys. And I love it green. I love it.
Nice to have another colour , the green is a refreshing change to pink
Perfect tow float for linger wild lake swims
On first glance it is a very basic, small, entry level tow-float, but that makes it perfect for open water race events. The bright green gives a pleasing contrast on the water.
It is definitely not a drybag. There are no attachment points or pouches for items such as night lights, phones, key cases etc. It's smaller size does make it hard for shore spotters in choppy water conditions and tall waves, so perhaps not suited for training in these conditions.
However due to being so small, simple and buoyant in design it makes it great for open water race events where tow-floats are mandatory and reducing drag is important. This is especially so in endurance events where safety support may be boat based rather than on shore.
