SR Smith Offers Tuck Away Track Start With Velocity Starting Block

S.R.Smith’s Velocity Starting block features a track start that can be easily tucked away when the full block surface is desired. This provides an advantage for elite swimmers’ relay exchanges, as well as novice swimmers not ready to use a track start.  The unique TrueTread™ footboard surface, which is an alternative to traditional sand tread, provides an exceptionally good gripping surface.
