The Velocity Advantage is the newest member of S.R.Smith’s Velocity Starting Block Series, with a marine-grade box style base similar to other elite starting platforms, which are particularly suitable for bulkheads. The blocks come with patent pending, integral backstroke starting ledges that can be adjusted from the pool deck to five positions per FINA guidelines. As with Velocity Single Post and Dual Post Starting Platforms, the Velocity Advantage features a large (28” x 32”) fiberglass footboard with a TrueTread™ non-slip surface. The footboard is also available with sand tread, which allows for custom colors and logos. The track start wedge is adjustable to five positions, and easily tucks beneath the footboard (without detaching) to clear the surface for relay exchanges.
