Scubapro Mens Everflex

Here’s the press release from Scubapro:

Like a Second Skin

Through the combination of exclusive and carefully designed core features, the stylish Everflex is in a league of its own:

Pure Design Concept (PDC): with fewer and virtually water tight seems for maximum stretch, the Everflex conforms to the body like a second skin, providing unparalleled comfort and freedom of movement.

Advanced Thermal Lining: water draining Diamond Span material for ultimate cold water protection.

X-Foam Technology: your wellbeing comes first. X-Foam is the only technologically advanced material that complies with (P.A.H) regulations.

Water Repellent Everflex: sheds water and dries quickly upon leaving the water, providing extra insulation whilst preventing heat loss.

Ultra Stretch Neoprene Formula: cleverly constructed and extra stretchy. The 3D cut and the elasticity of the material makes struggling in and out a thing of the past.

Abrasion Resistent Materials: for protection and durability. With Powertex reinforced seat and shoulder panels and Tatex Kneepads for added resilience.

Fourth Element announce Tech Fins inspired by whale tail

Published

on

A classic vented dive fin, engineered by nature and redesigned to maximise performance.

Fourth Element’s new Tech Fins have taken inspiration from nature and evolution to optimise efficiency. The turbulence disruptors on the top of the blade work in the same way as the nodules of the leading edge of a humpback whale fin, which disrupt the water as they move through it. The resulting turbulence enables the whale to swim with more efficiency. Fourth Element has adopted this evolutionary concept to improve the performance of this classic fin.

Utilising natural rubber in a unique density gradient, the dive fin delivers an ultra- comfortable foot pocket combined with optimised stiffness for finning performance.

The vented design allows water to flow along the blade reducing drag and fatigue, whilst the stiffening rails and ribs ensure that the blade of the fin is driven through the water to maximise the return on effort.

The Tech Fins, with a slightly negative buoyancy characteristic, were developed with technical divers in mind but are suitable for all levels of diver looking for a high-performance rubber fin. The wider blade gives manoeuvrability without compromising the power, while the shorter length improves agility and makes stowing the fins for transport more convenient. Spring straps with comfortable heel pads keep the feet securely held in place. These straps can be removed and changed easily with everyday tools if required.

The Tech Fins are supplied with a hanging/carrying strap and a marine quality bolt snap which may be used to attach them to a bcd or harness for carrying, leaving both hands free for climbing ladders or carrying other gear.

The natural rubber material of this fin is extremely durable, and all components are recyclable at end of life.

The Tech Fins are available in M, L, XL and XXL. These fins will fit sizes 4 (US5) to 14 (US15) and come in Black, Grey or Aqua.

Features

  • Natural rubber heel strap
  • Stainless steel spring strap
  • Soft foot pocket
  • Hydro-flow vents
  • Turbulence disruptors
  • Strengthening ribs
  • Stiffening lateral rails
