The Mares X-Stream Fin is packed with technology! All these innovations in this award winning fin work to give you maximum power when you need it, with relaxed and easy kicking in the water!
- ABS plus buckles and perforated pull tab
- Riddled foot pocket avoids “parachute effect”
- Next generation OPB
- Tri-material blade construction reduces turbulence
- Channel thrust technology
Riddled Foot PocketThe perforations prevent stagnating water flow from slowing you down. Eliminating this “parachute effect” you’ll slide faster through the water. Furthermore the openings eliminate any suction effect, making doffing easier.
OPB - Optimized Pivoting BladeAllows the blade to maintain an optimal angle throughout the kicking cycle, whereas traditional fins achieve this only during a small portion of the cycle. OPB produces a constant thrust, which minimizes fatigue and produces fluid movement through the water.
Channel ThrustSoft longitudinal inserts allow a controlled deformation of the fin blade while kicking. This channel shape moves a greater amount of water resulting in more thrust for the same effort.
Tri-Material Construction3 specific materials for maximum elasticity, high durability and resistance to aging. The result is superior performance in all diving conditions.
