Aqua-Hinge mechanism and highly efficient blade design
Flipfins™ revolutionary and durable Aqua-Hinge mechanism and highly efficient blade design provide an essential combination of performance and safety for divers at all levels. For swimming, no other fin can match the power and comfort provided by Amphibian Flipfins™, which features a prominent central web configuration contributing to increased propulsion and reduced load required during sustained kicking. A natural evolution within the dive industry, the Amphibian® Fin System by Omega Aquatics is designed to be strapped on prior to entering the water and removed after exiting. These fins have the heavy-duty springs that push the blade webbing up against the shin while on the surface. This makes walking, climbing boat ladders and other movements as easy as wearing no fins at all. Once in the water, Flipfins™ blades are flipped down into swimming position by simply kicking naturally in the water, and flipped back up by pushing back on the release levers prior to getting out. This efficient blade design combined with the revolutionary and durable Aqua-Hinge locking mechanism, provides an essential combination of performance and safety for scuba divers at all levels. Amphibian® Scuba Flipfins are available in Large and X-Large sizes. Medium will be available in early 2010. • Patented Amphibian® Fin system allows for easy transition from walk to dive mode. • Ultra-light weight and neutrally buoyant. • Blade’s design offers the unbeatable performance and efficiency with minimum effort. • Large, comfortable foot pocket with raised slip resistant thread design. • Extended sole plate acts like a lever to enhance power stroke. • Weight per pair: Large 4 Lbs (1.8 kg) & X-Large 4.4 Lbs (1.9 kg) Please contact us for availability in Europe.
