The backstroke start device (patent pending) from Colorado Time Systems Helps to eliminate slips at the start of a race.

  • Anti-slip foot backstroke wedge
  • Easy to set up
  • Automatically retracts up and out of the water
  • Robust construction
  • Adapts to most Kiefer starting blocks
  • FINA 2.10 USA Swimming, and U.S. Masters compliant

The versatile design allows the device to attach to nearly any starting block with ether straps or anchors. Once in place, pull down the backstroke wedge to the desired location on the pool wall and lock into place. Once the swimmer has left the wall, the backstroke start device will automatically retract up and out of the water until the next swimmer sets up for the next race without interfering with turns and finishes.

The non-slip backstroke start device wedge measures 255.6" x 3.1" (65cm x 8cm) and features a 10° angle for foot placement at the race start.
