Subgear Fin

 

 

Subgear  has the deepest diving Stereo fins in the world. William Winram wore the Carbon S1 for his last stereo fin world record, reaching a depth of 94 meters. Developed in partnership with Trygons and tested by some of the world’s best freedivers, you can expect an unbelievable performance.

 

Subgear Diver with 1 sharkI adore the finsgreat power, great feel, so light, super comfortable. My dives were far deeper and far longer and the fins literally feel like an amazing natural extension of my legsbut they are almost unnoticable.

 Julie Andersen, Founder & Executive Director, Shark Angels, Freediver and Scuba Diver

What I discovered to be the distinctive feature of the S1 Fins was the very apparent lack of effort required – they were so light on my feet I had to check they were still there more than once! This is a great feature for a freediving fin, the embodiment of maximum propulsion for minimum effort.

Carbon Fibre Technology – Just like Formula 1

Carbon blades provide the best performance in freediving fins. And Subgear uses the highest available carbon fibre possible, similar to that used in Formula 1 cars and aircraft.

Increased Powerplus Comfort

The transfer of power from the body to the blade is through a single inelastic band. This band directs the energy to where it is needed and nowhere else. The feet are comfortable in the incredibly soft rubber foot pockets and the hydrodynamic shape reduces any resistance, giving them an enormous hydrodynamic advantage over the competition.

Unique Development Technic

Each component – the foot pockets, the blade and the side rails are designed individually so that each single element offers the maximum performance. The result is a push that even the beginner will not fail to notice.

The new soft foot-pocket plays no part in the blade bending. Traditionally, the rigidity of the foot-pocket rail was used to power the blade. These fins were called 100% carbon, where in fact, most of their actual elasticity and firmness originated from the rubber foot-pocket rail.

The rail piece is there only for streamlining the flow and nothing more. As a direct result, the blades are thicker and stiffer than before. The new blades do the work by themselves. Subgear claim that these are the first ever REAL fibre reinforced fins.

Dive into Colour with Scubapro: New gear in eye-catching colours

Published

on

SCUBAPRO launches the GHOST, STEEL COMP, STEEL PRO masks and the ESCAPE snorkel in new colours

Diving equipment is black – that used to be the case. Whether for identification, individualization or simply because it looks good – coloured equipment has become an integral part of the diving sector.

SCUBAPRO started using coloured accents many years ago – with success! Starting with the signature Hydros PRO and Seawing Nova, a range of coloured masks, snorkels and fins followed, and recently the interchangeable Supernova Blades, Scuba Skegs and various other accessories were launched in colour.

Now SCUBAPRO is expanding the colour range in 3 mask models and a snorkel to include turquoise, pink, orange, yellow and blue, in addition to the standard black and white.

Freedivers and scuba divers can now choose the STEEL COMP, STEEL PRO and GHOST masks in 7 colours and the ESCAPE snorkel in 8 colours. Whether colour blocking or tone-in-tone – there are no longer any limits to individual colour creations.

Discover coloured dive equipment here!
