Atomic Aquatics‘ latest line of scuba diving fins — BladeFins — are now available at authorized retailers, the company announced this week.
“BladeFins are designed as a ‘paddle’ fin concept popular with divers who prefer a powerful swimming style to sprint through the water in the most demanding conditions. The addition of BladeFins diversifies the Atomic fin family and complements its well-established, top selling SplitFins™ product line. These two distinct Atomic fin designs offer divers a choice of fins best suited to their personal swimming style.”
Atomic‘s BladeFins sport a unique, two-frame structure that work in tandem to maximize kicking power:
“A ‘Power-Loop Monocoque’ engineering structure is paired with a specially-designed ‘Frame Rail’ design to give divers more power and thrust to move efficiently through the water with every kick,” the company says.
“Single-shell Monocoque engineering is often utilized in aircraft and Indy race car designs,” according to Dean Garraffa, Atomic Aquatics co-founder and president of Huish Outdoors Dive and Watersports group.
“When you use this technology in a diving fin, every part of the kicking motion is optimized,” Garraffa added. “The foot pocket Power Plate and Power Rail work in tandem while vertical stabilizers at the tip of the fin helps channel and control the water down the blade for an exceptionally efficient performance.”
BladeFins are available in the following sizes: Small (5 1/2 Men’s USA, 37-38 EU), Medium (6-6 1/2 Men’s USA, 39-41 EU), Large (9-11 Men’s USA, 42-43 EU), and XLarge (10 1/2 – 11 1/2 Men’s USA, 44-46 EU).
