IRONMAN ROKA Pro Swim Paddles
The ROKA Pro Paddles improve on the conventional style of stroke technique paddles that swimmers have come to know and love. The Pro Paddles are defined by their ergonomic design, durable construction, and their ability to be customized to fit the hands of every swimmer looking to increase strength and improve technique. With four different sizes available and multiple hole locations on each paddle, every swimmer will be able to find their perfect fit.
The contoured design molds to the shape of the palm to make swimming with the paddles feel more natural, especially through the critical early catch phase. The textured surface of the paddle helps maintain grip through the entire stroke, and the molded polypropylene material supplies the perfect amount of flex while maintaining excellent durability - perfect for everyday use.
A prominent feature of the Pro Paddles is its durable, comfortable, and customizable strapping system. Sturdy silicone finger and wrist straps spread pressure across the fingers better than a tube-shaped retention system and can be set at different lengths to customize the amount of tension on the fingers and wrist. Notches molded into the straps allow you to set and forget the tension setting, so you do not have to constantly tug your wrist or finger straps tight right before pushing off the wall. The Pro Paddles are patented internationally, with a US patent pending.
“Those are like an evolution of the type of paddles I like! Great grip for the hand and good to have the different sizes. The system to fix the rubber bands to the hand is great, easy to adjust and comfortable.” - Javier Gomez, 7x World Champion
“The strapping system is FANTASTIC. That is awesome. The flat section to distribute load, the little notches to adjust tension…what great little tricks. Overall, I’d buy them just for that. Way better than the traditional rubber tubes.” - Jordan Rapp, Ironman Champion
