Powerbreather will change the way you swim and snorkel

Powerbreather Snorkel product

Swimming is an excellent exercise, but it scares a lot of people due to the lack of constant breaths of air and the fear of drowning. Forcing yourself to turn your head above the water during sidestrokes can sometimes feel unnatural, and when you use snorkels to help breathe, you have to keep your head straight so water doesn’t get inside the tube. With the new Powerbreather, you no longer have to worry about either issues.

The German product aims to be the “future in swimming,” as the Powerbreather wraps around your head with the air valve at the very top. This saves you the trouble of turning your head when you swim, and allows you to keep your face underwater and still receive fresh air. The circular, ring-like shape of this revolutionary snorkel helps to remove spent air by breathing out of the mouthpiece and also keep water out. The elastic material of the Powerbreather ensures the device stays firmly on your head and in place. Imagine finally being able to turn, tilt your head, and look around as your snorkel without dipping a traditional snorkel too close to water. New swimmers can benefit as well by focusing on the task at hand without worrying about head placement and swim freely.

Powerbreather prototype showing at ISPO Brandnew 2012Even older people, professional swimmers and anyone undertaking swimming training can train with the Powerbreather in a much more relaxed and effective way,” the product page states. Now, your neck muscles won’t ache either as you continuously train.

The Powerbreather was a finalist in the Accessories category at the 2012 ISPO BrandNew awards in innovations for sporting goods. While no pricing and sales information are currently available, we do anticipate the product to hit the market relatively soon since it does say that the design has been “patented worldwide”. For information, contact Powerbreather directly via its official website.
