This high performance, full-foot fin is based upon the Slingshot technology coupled with the latest in materials innovation. The result is comfort and performance.,/p>

  • The blade is not directly attached to the front of the foot pocket. The fulcrum point is at the patented mid-foot location, known as the Mid-Foot Flex Joint. This takes the strain off of the toes and ankles, and allows the entire foot to be used, resulting in incredible comfort
  • To bridge the gap between blade and foot pocket an “Armadillo” membrane is used. The “Armadillo” is a patented, elongating membrane made out of superelastic rubber. It serves two functions:
    • Accumulates elastic energy during each kick and gives it back at the end of the kick
    • Make a complete connection between foot pocket and blade, eliminating hydrodynamic gap that water can move through
Foot pocket:
  • Made with different thickness zones for better transmission of power from leg to fin
  • Integrated power transmission belt keeps pocket from stretching on power stroke
  • Low profile eliminates drag and turbulence
  • Large rubber side ribs are high enough to channel water flow down the blade without letting water “spill” over the edges
Materials used:
  • Blade made of customized techno-polymer alloy that has high spring effect and flexibility to maximize acceleration
  • Strong side ribs and rubber inserts on blade are made with a elastomeric compounds, customized for Aqua Lung to provide maximum elasticity
  • Foot pocket made with rubber of different elasticities
