The Strength Paddle is a high-performance resistance tool that provides a natural feel of the water thanks to its shape and raised palm supports.
- Designed to mimic the natural bone structure of the hand for a more natural pulling motion
- Vents and palm risers enhance feel for the water
- Ergonomic wrist strap and finger loop are fully adjustable, durable and streamlined
“The Strength Paddles are one of my favorite tools that we've developed, because they basically give you the feel of the hand and the way it is when its swimming because of the raised portion under the palm of your hand. It’s not a flat surface. You’re actually in a much more natural position."
- Coach Bob Bowman

About MP Michael Phelps “MP” Brand Brings New Line of Technical Swim Products for Competitive Swimmers Aqua Sphere, the premier swimming equipment manufacturer for fitness and recreational swimming, aquatic exercise, and triathlons, and Michael Phelps, the most decorated swimmer of all-time, have together launched the “MP” brand.
"My decision to partner with Aqua Sphere and launch the MP brand was driven by the opportunity to enhance the technical aspects of swimming products available in the marketplace and I am proud to be a part of the development of our first competitive racing suit, the XPRESSO." said Phelps.
“From the fabric and patterning, to the compression and body coverage, every detail has been engineered to create a performance suit that is fast in the water, comfortable to wear, and looks great,” said Bowman. "I was most impressed by the team's willingness to take our feedback and fine-tune the XPRESSO to ensure the best possible performance."
