thesnorkelto a large degree hasn’t change much since the products invention. Sure, there are now versions that include an apparatus to help clear the tube of water, but to a large degree the function and the form has remained the same. And hence why we can’t over look the Powerbreather Snorkel.
atfirst blush, it resembles a contraption that would be found in a Star Wars movie, or some forward thinking scifi flick. But it’s actually a very simple design that allows swimmers to inhale and exhale without the fear of water entering their lungs at anytime, at least according to the company. This is accomplished using a set of of what is presumably a proprietary placed valve system. Needless to say, this is contrary to traditional snorkels. That being said, the Powerbreather adheres to the head using an elastic design and ensures that even when you dip below the water’s surface it stays on the head and doesn’t shift around.
So why would you get one of these? Apparently, rotating the neck during swimming can cause injury and also inhibits the swimmers ability to reach their max potential. The Powerbreather is said to resolve this quandary. It’s also ideal for kids or people who are learning how to swim.
