Introducing the TUSA Hyflex Switch Fin

Published

on

The latest fins from TUSA, the SF0104 TUSA Hyflex Switch, are powered by PuRiMaX “Polyurethane Blade System”. The top quality Polyurethane blade provides a quick “snappy” response to the diver’s every movement, which is more responsive than rubber and plastic fins. 

TUSA’s unique “Vortex Generator” effectively reduces water resistance through the fin stroke normally found on traditional smooth blades. Six performance ridges positioned behind the blade vent reduce resistance, creating a smoother and more efficient kick cycle.

The Angled Blade Design (A.B.D.) ensures maximum efficiency throughout the kicking cycle. A standard flat fin inhibits propulsion solely by fault of design. An angle between the heel of the foot and the calf of the leg remains when the leg is extended to kick. This angle causes approximately 10% of the propulsion to be lost in traditional fins but the A.B.D of the TUSA Hyflex Switch accommodates for this anatomical characteristic and minimises loss of movement. The multi-compound foot pocket also increases power transfer to the fin blade.

The TUSA Hyflex Switch is equipped with the new Universal Bungee Strap providing extraordinary comfort. This heavy duty elastic fin strap provides easy donning and doffing of fins, as well as five adjustable positions. In addition, the fin blade handily separates from the foot pocket for ease of storage and travel.

Scubapro introduces new MK19 EVO BT/G260 CARBON BT regulator

Building on its legacy of innovation, Scubapro introduces a new carbon fibre regulator for greater durability

Scubapro, the world’s premier manufacturer of high-quality scuba diving equipment, introduces its new MK19 EVO BT/G260 CARBON BT regulator system, exemplifying the ultimate in modern lightweight regulator design and durable engineering excellence.

The new regulator system features Scubapro’s new balanced diaphragm first stage, the MK19 EVO BT, finished in a special ultra-durable Black Tech coating, along with an upgraded version of Scubapro’s most popular tech diving second stage, the G260, featuring a lightweight, ultra-durable carbon fibre front cover.

“The MK19 EVO BT/G260 Carbon BT is a rugged, reliable, and sharp-looking regulator system that delivers solid breathing performance in all diving conditions and water temperatures,” said Joe Stella, Group Vice President at Scubapro.

“It’s a great choice for avid and professional divers who appreciate high performance in demanding conditions.” Noting that the addition of an axial LP port may also interest technical divers seeking that specific diving configuration, Stella added, “Emphasizing design and performance, the MK19 EVO BT/G260 Carbon BT is an excellent addition to Scubapro’s iconic line of diving regulators.”

The new MK19 EVO BT is SCUBAPRO’s premium environmentally sealed first stage. An engineering marvel, it improves the proven cold-water performance of the MK17 EVO and pairs it with the swivel turret of the MK25 EVO that features four High-Flow LP ports plus one axial Super High-Flow LP port for convenient LP hose routing. The MK19 EVO BT is completely sealed off from the elements, helping ensure trouble-free operation no matter how frigid, silty or murky the water gets, creating the best-in-class first stage regulator for cold water and harsh diving conditions.

While retaining its large diaphragm, internal metal components and high-flow exhaust valve for excellent breathing sensitivity, enhanced performance and resistance to freezing, the new G260 Carbon BT second stage ratchets up its ruggedness and durability with the addition of a carbon fibre front cover. Lightweight and extremely durable, if dropped or struck against a hard object, carbon fibre can resist substantial shocks without damage.

Both the MK19 EVO BT and the G260 Carbon BT feature a premium Black Tech DLC (Diamond-Like Carbon) coating on their metal parts. This upscale coating not only lends a technical look to the system, but also protects against scratches and the ravages of salt water and corrosion.
