As watersports broaden their appeal, attracting new participants to accessible sports such as SUP, Kayak, small motor-boating and general watersports the need for flotation to be worn becomes even more relevant yet traditional lifejackets and buoyancy aids can often be disregarded as being too big, bulky, expensive or over specified.
In popular sports such as Fishing and SUP participants are often pushing themselves to take on greater challenges, venturing further out to sea or remote locations. With accidents not uncommon these groups are starting to become more interested in personal flotation and are now looking for a product which suits their sport.
The new ALTO Belt Pack Flotation Aid from Spinlock takes the benefit of an inflatable lifejacket and combined into the ISO12402 50N flotation category to offer a simple, compact, lightweight, waist worn flotation aid.
Pull, Inflate, Float. The small, soft cover bursts open, inflating a tough 75N horseshoe floating aid that can be worn either on the front when needed as an aid for swimming or on the back for the best floating support. Simple to rearm and repack, the ALTO can used over and over again.
Available in two colours, the small and lightweight ALTO will fit neatly into a kit bag, ready to be worn when on, or by the water. The ALTO is manually inflated using a regular 16g CO2 Cylinder
