Made with the exclusive Cressi-sub patented 3-material injection system, it fully responds to modern diving trends with moderate dimensions and weight and an excellent combination of strength, power, comfort and aesthetics. The main basis of the structure is the use of polypropylene as a material of excellent mechanical performance.
The combination of 3 different materials guarantees the optimization of the requirements of each area of the fin:
Main body of polypropylene: This material, inherited from the apnea fins, has as its main characteristic the very fast transmission of applied energy and its great structural rigidity. It is applied to the shovel and inner area of the sole sandwich. It is very nervous and reactive and facilitates a very agile and effective flutter. It has an effort-performance ratio clearly superior to traditional materials (natural or thermoplastic rubber, polyurethane, EVA). It also has great resistance to breakage to the point that Cressi guarantees it for life for sports use.
Flexible elastomer: Apply to shoe and areas that require flexibility and elasticity, as they influence the comfort of the diver: shoe toe, interior of the sole and area of the instep in contact with the ankle. It is also assigned to areas requiring non-slip capacity: Inserts in the sole (ground contact zone) and anti-kick, as the lateral nerves of the blade. The fusion of both materials is made at a molecular level and its strength is guaranteed for life for sports use.
Compact elastomer: Flexible but not elastic. It is applied to areas that require a gummy, non-slip but firm composition and great resistance: Longitudinal nerves, shoe sole and foot strap (located in the middle of the instep). This material connects the critical point of transmission of the energy (the instep) with the nerves in a single piece, avoiding the usual loss of energy through excessively flexible components of the shoe that produce a heavy, slow and fatiguing boot .
The structure, designed for this new variant of the base material of the blade, aims to combine a great strength with a good water channeling, protection of the lateral nerves and a soft toe for a comfortable flutter and less action of erosion due to accidental contacts With the background. It also uses several technologies common to the rest of Cressi models:
"Shoe design under the shovel": The shovel is born directly from the top of the shoe, solidly attaching the fin to the foot and transmitting all the effort generated by fluttering without loss of energy through soft areas. This format allows the water to be channeled from the same ankle to the final edge of the blade, unlike traditional models, in which the shoe has no contribution whatsoever to the feed. Apart from improving the directionality of the flutter, this design provides a benefits between 10% and 15% higher than those that would correspond to the fin by its surface of blade.
Double lateral nerves, alternating to obtain a fully controlled structure and flexion.
Thickness of the downward spade "spina di pesce" to improve the directionality of the flutter and to achieve a greater inertia of the final part of the fin.
Reinforced shoe in the upper zone by means of a supplementary thickness and laterally by two extensions of polypropylene from the blade to avoid the dispersion of energy in the process of transmission of the foot to the blade.
Calzante with three differentiated volumes, with the central zone narrowed so that the foot is firmly fixed in its interior and the transmission of the foot-shoe-shovel effort is direct and precise.
360º swivel quick-release buckles. They allow ideal automatic positioning of the strip during flapping. A new buckle locking system precludes the usual accidental release of the female part.
System of buckles EBS with strip of natural latex: maximum comfort, comfort and transmission of the energy. + Info
