OSB11 presents a powerful new patented feature, revolutionising the way the swimmers start from their blocks. Diving from the starting block with the body propelled by the knee at a 90° angle drastically increases the explosiveness of the start. Physical tests undertaken by top level swimmers showed faster races versus a standard block.

OSB11 Starting Blocks have been tested by world-class swimmers, who have helped to specify the optimum angles of both the platform and the footrest for racing starts. Design research also applied to the top surfaces, very comfortable yet rough enough to guarantee the swimmer a feeling of total security. The length of the platform is extended to 74 cm to accommodate the new styles of start.

The diameter and position of the handgrips have also been carefully considered to respond to all the requirements of different hand positions. A door at the back of the block allows easy access to the interior to connect the cabling.

OSB11 Starting Blocks benefit from a new design and an attractive color scheme.
