Published

on

This Summer, dive and snorkelling gear manufacturer Oceanic is inviting its customers to “Set Their Dive Free.” Dubbed the Predator line, the company is releasing a free dive-specific fin, mask, snorkel and mesh carry bag to support this growing segment within the watersport market.

“The Predator line is designed for entry-level free divers and open-water hunters,” Oceanic Brand Manager, Nick Hollis, says of the new offerings, “but with the ease of use and quality you’ve come to expect from the brand.”

Stylishly designed and expertly crafted, the set – including mask, fins, snorkel and mesh bag – comes in a contemporary blue camo print.

The Predator Fin will feature a full-foot design and a rigid long blade for excellent propulsion. The Predator Mask will boast an ultra low-volume design with soft-squeeze buckles for easy adjustment and a comfy universal skirt. Plus, a simple and reliable J-tube snorkel with no valves or removable parts keeps things elegantly simple – just what freedivers are looking for.

The complete offering is now shipping and available at local retailers.

SCUBAPRO introduces the Seawing Supernova

Published

on

SCUBAPRO introduces the Seawing Supernova, a new diving fin designed to deliver maximum power when you need it.

Winner of the prestigious, internationally recognized Red Dot Award for product design, the Seawing Supernova is a remarkable step up from the Seawing Nova in performance, construction, fit and versatility, with an innovative blade shape that produces much more power, speed and manoeuvrability.

Power is key in a diving fin and the Seawing Supernova delivers. The fin’s proven Pivot Control Technology ensures the blade is pre-set in the 40º to 50º range, which is the optimal angle of attack for the blade and ideal for converting kicks into forward propulsion. This hinge system works in tandem with the blade’s unique flexible Auto-Adjust central panel which fine-tunes the angle of attack by counter-pivoting based on the strength of the kick. This provides a milder angle of attack for comfort when kicking gently, a more aggressive angle of attack when power kicking at full strength, and anything in between.  When it comes to frog and alternate kicks, new twin-tip winglets increase control and markedly improve manoeuvrability.

Made of premium Monprene® for maximum durability, the Seawing Supernova’s innovative two-piece design, with blade and foot pocket molded separately, disassembles easily for travel. Sold as an open heel set with foot pocket and blade pre-assembled, the Seawing Supernova’s open heel foot pocket features an upgraded heavy-duty bungee strap that allows for micro-adjustments to accommodate different boot types, and extended grip pads that provide an improved non-skid grip on wet surfaces.

The two-piece design also makes it possible to replace the standard open heel foot pocket with an optional full foot pocket for barefoot diving. Simply disassemble the fin’s Socket-Lock Connecting System, switch out the open heel foot pocket with a full foot pocket, reassemble and you’re ready to hit the water. The full foot pocket is also made of premium Monprene® and features a re-profiled heel-retention cup to prevent slipping and chafing.

A key fob-style multi-Tool is included for assembly and disassembly of the foot pocket and blade, along with a travel-friendly storage bag.

The new Seawing Supernova is the essential power fin for avid recreational and professional divers seeking maximum performance, speed and control in all diving conditions.
