Description

OSB11 presents a powerful new patented feature, revolutionizing 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 are 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.

Top Features

  • Adjustable footrest
  • FINA & USA Swimming compliance
  • Anti-slip surface
  • Extended platform surface
  • Easy handgrip
  • Available versions: standard or with RBD (RelayBreak Detection)
  • Available in several RAL colors Blue (Default) (RAL5017) | Black (RAL9005) | Grey (RAL7010) | Ivory (RAL1014) | Red (RAL3002)

Available Versions

Two versions are available:

  • With Relay Break Detection System (RBD)
  • Standard version

Both versions have the same base and top, providing an affordable and evolutive solution: a basic system can be upgraded later to an RBD system. The footrest can be freely adjusted in length or disassembled with standard tools.
In a fixed cable installation, the various items of the timing system connect into a lane Deck plate which is installed under the center of each block. This offers physical protection for cables, connections, and speakers. An additional Start deck plate can be located next to the position of the acoustic start device.
