The Speed Vent Medium has a bit more resistance than the Speed Vent Easy, that now comes standard with all Powerbreather models. The Speed Vent Medium is equivalent to what was originally included with the Powerbreather until March 2017. We had requests to make the breathing easier (Speed Vent Easy) and requests to make it harder (Speed Vent Power) so we did both. It ultimately came down to the majority of swimmers want it as easy as possible, so that's what comes with it now.
Adding the Speed Vent Medium and Speed Vent Power to your Powerbreather can add a hypoxic effect to your workout. Easily interchanged on any Powerbreather model. Essentially, you are restricting your breather to create an effect of training at altitude. With the Powerbreather, you are still only breathing fresh air. This is very important.
There are many theories and even science on hypoxic training and the benefits. From Ironman athletes at Kona, to those with Asthma, people swear by it. In fact, the making of the Power Speed Vent was from direct feedback and requests from some of the worlds top triathletes. It is favored and endorsed by many, yet discouraged by others and not for everyone. It is recommended you consult with a swim coach, your doctor, and do your own research before taking on a training regiment that includes the Speed Vent Power.
