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.
