Underwater Hockey bifins 500 mm length C8 carbon
Our fins are specially designed to improve propulsion during the action phases of underwater hockey. The length of the 500 series allows to reach high speeds. The fins have a specific composite structure that supports torsion and flexion in all directions while maintaining maximum thrust. They are fully protected and approved for competition. T-profiles on the leading edges to ensure good guidance Water droplet profiles on the trailing edge for protection. The C8 carbon is the most efficient of our range, with a 4 to 5% higher yield than the C5. You will have extremely high performance fins. You can choose a branded closed-heel footpocket or a custom-made open-heel footpocket. This one frees the rotation of the ankle in all directions and thus increases the finning's amplitude and the efficiency thanks to a more precise foot positioning on the blade. Finally, it facilitates direction changes. It takes a little time to get used to it.
This fin will suit players who need to repeat long accelerations. It is slower to activate than the 450 series, but allows for greater top speed. To choose the right stiffness, it is important to take into account your body size and your level of practice. The hardness gives more power but requires more effort, with the repetition of the efforts, the muscles are very solicited. To help you, use our 'which model for me?' selector. The most experienced players can add 1 level to the recommended stiffness index. Blade breakage can occur if the blade is stuck (cannot bend) on the edge or bottom of the pool. The push-off must be done on the foot, not on the blade. Repeated push-offs on the fin will create micro-traumas on the fibers that are invisible to the naked eye and one day, while the player is finning quietly, the fin breaks.
PRECAUTIONS FOR USE :
Your fibreglass or carbon blade can break :
- If the fin is stuck (the end of the fin is stuck, all the weight is on the blade and it cannot bend) => Do not push off with the blade on the bottom, the side of the pool or on the bottom of the water
- If you jump into the water with the blade parallel to the water.
