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.
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 super-elastic rubber. It serves two functions:
o Accumulates elastic energy during each kick and gives it back at the end
o Make a complete connection between foot pocket and blade, eliminating
hydrodynamic gap that water can move through
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.
