SWIMN has created a new powered swimming kickboard that allows you to propel yourself through the water in pool or sea. Incorporating an integrated electric motor the SWIMN S1 swimming kickboard has this week launched via Kickstarter and is now available to back with earlybird pledges from $169 or roughly £132 offering a considerable 32% saving off the recommended retail price which will take effect once the campaign comes to a end.
“With SWIMN S1, you can swim FAST without getting tired! With a power boost by the motor, it can take you anywhere in the water at nearly 2.5mph (4km/h) easily. Swimmers on average swim at speed of 1.8mph (3km/h). With the power boost from SWIMN S1, you can easily speed up to nearly 4.3mph (7km/h), almost catching up with Phelps! With SWIMN S1, you’ll never get bored of swimming! Designed with quick detachable nozzles, it can be turned into a powerful water gun to offer more swimming fun. Splash and beat them all!”
“With strong flotation, fence protection, and the two-step waterproof design, you can enjoy swimming fun without worries! (Please notice that this product will not protect against drowning and should be used under constant supervision.) The sealing ring and encapsulating adhesive provide two-step water protection to the built-in battery. It’s safe to use in the water. 5.5kgf buoyancy provides strong flotation. Adults can ride it safely. According to our test, SWIMN S1 can pull an adult weighing 80kg forward easily.”
