The Safer Swimmer™ Torpedo is our latest innovation. Based on years of experience with developing Safer Swimmer floats, we styled the Torpedo to feature a wider body flowing into a tapered, hydrodynamic point which helps to increase its stability and performance in the water. The air chamber of the Torpedo is on top, with a modest dry storage space underneath. This design reduces float wobbling, allowing it to remain laying flat and balanced on the surface while it trails behind you. Additionally, we have incorporated a new style of press-release valve that is easier to inflate and deflate for your on-the-go swim sessions.

Safe Swimming Without Hindering Performance - "Be Seen and Be Safe"
Don't be fooled by the knock off buoys out on the market today. This buoy was developed by the International Swimming Hall of Fame in 2010 and is proud of making swimmers safe all over the world.
The ISHOF Safer Swimmer™ float is specifically designed to provide a safety aide for open water swimmers, serving three important functions without hindering performance or hindering your stroke. When considering personal safety and peace of mind for you and those who care about you consider the following advantages of this device:
- It makes you visible to boaters, jet skis, kite boarders or other potential human hazards while you are swimming;
- It can be used as a flotation device when you need it in the case of cramps, dizziness or injury and it can also be used to rescue others;
- It can keep your “stuff” safe while you're swimming and allows you to take along your “stuff” on one-way swims across rivers or lakes.
- Unlike running, when a swimmer suffers a stroke, heart attack or unconsciousness you sink and disappear below the water. As an incident at Christmas Lake in Minnesota demonstrated, when observers saw the ISHOF Safer Swimmer Float not moving, it alerted them in time to revive and save the life of a swimmer who otherwise could have been added to the not insignificant number of open water swimmers who have drowned in recent years. Most notably, the great American open water swimmer Fran Crippen.
