Mares X-Stream Adjustable Open Heel Scuba Diving Fins Flippers with ABS Straps
The X-Stream fin from Mares is a brand new, adjustable, open foot scuba fin which is lightweight and comfortable with a new foot pocket and new blade construction for less turbulence in the water. The X-Stream is designed to provide a greater thrust throughout the water but with less effort and this is achieved by allowing the blade to maintain an optimal angle throughout the kicking cycle along with a channel thrust which, inspired by marine mammals, allows for great channelling of water compared to other fins of the same size. The X Stream won the prestigious 2010 Red Dot product design award illustrating that it is a truly excellent product.Features foot pockets that prevent water f rom entering the space between the dive boot and the foot pocket which would normally create a parachute type drag. The perforations also make the foot pocket soft and flexible and means there is no longer a suction which can make doffing cumbersome. Optimized pivoting blade allows the blade to maintain an optimal angle throughout your kicking cycle. This provides a constant thrust which keeps fatigue to a minimum and provides fluid movement through the water. The blade has been designed with a large, flexible central super channel which propels water more efficiently down the fin blade instead of letting it spill over the sides for optimal performance and minimal diver effort. Channel thrust is inspired by marine mammals and this new technology maximizes the channelling of water and moves a much greater amount of water compared to other fins. This results in greater thrusting power but with the same amount of effort. ABS plus buckles allows quick opening and closing of the buckle even when wearing thick neoprene gloves. The double button release prevents the buckle from accidentally opening making it really user friendly. Open foot pocket provides maximum power and evenly distributes pressure over the foot to minimize tiredness. Internal ribbing inside the foot pocket improves fit and prevents foot suction and flexing of the foot pocket whilst transmitting great power to the blade. The Size guide above assumes that a 6mm Neoprene Wet Suit Type Dive Boot will be worn - if your boots are 3mm you should consider the smaller size if you are between sizes.
