Xcellerator Starting Platform, Dual Post (133171)

Starting Platform for swimming

Spectrum Aquatics® Xcellerator Dual Post starting platforms give swimmers an extra boost on starts by allowing the rear leg to start at a 90° angle. Every frame is constructed of high quality US stainless steel, but what really sets our blocks apart from our competitors is the superior nonslip surface. Xcellerator block tops are coated with a grit overlay that provides a level of traction not available in competing products, and our plastic block tops, which are made of low density polyethylene, contain a superior, treaded surface that surpasses industry standards. Our single post anchoring system features a unique heavy duty bronze anchor with a patented anti-wobble, locator pin design. This enables easy installation and removal of starting blocks with no tools required. Spectrum Aquatics blocks can accommodate nearly any deck and gutter configuration for both recreational and competition pools and can often be manufactured to fit into existing anchors. The Xcellerator Starting Platform conforms to FINA, USA Swimming, NCAA and NFHS rulings.

Spectrum Aquatics offers both single and dual post starting platforms, which include incredible non-slip tops and steps. Our stainless steel block tops are coated with a grit overlay providing an incredible level of traction not available in competing products. Our plastic tops are made of low-density polyethylene and contain a non-slip surface that surpasses industry standards. Plastic tops are a great choice for facilities that remove and store the blocks frequently – durable and able to withstand strong pool chemicals – resisting discoloration, fading and cracking.
