Because… agility needs power, power needs control and accuracy needs to be delivered with efficiency.
High power and increased agility
Careful blade design both increases power and maneuverability.
Advanced material compound
Traditional rubber can harden in low temperatures, soften in high - not the tough material in the EX1 fins though - consistently high performing.
Choice of 3 stiffness levels
3 different fin stiffness levels means you can choose a fin for your exact needs.
Soft footpocket entry
Softer material in the upper footpocket prevents drysuit boot wear and is much more comfortable.
Controlled power and agility
Power we know is desirable in fins, but agility is not often talked about. Agility is being able to quickly and accurately adjust your position, to easily change and control your movement and pace through the water, in any direction.
The iconic, even old fashioned rubber fin style has held its own in this regard for many years, but now, through advanced materials technology and design, there is a new more powerful and agile champion about to claim the crown.
Choose your ideal flexibility, Enjoy consistently excellent performance
Choose from hard, medium or a softer compound in the fin to best suit you and the type of diving you do. Balancing the additional control from a stiffer fin against the power of a softer more flexible blade delivers. It is a choice you can make for yourself.
A Foot pocket that fits like a glove
Our designers spent a long time profiling the most common drysuit and rock boots currently in use, ensuring that the foot pocket is designed to offer great fit, coupled with security and a great ‘feel’, allowing the diver to use the smallest foot movements to position the fin tip and blade exactly where needed.
Two phase moulding for greater comfort
Our understanding of materials technology has allowed us to break away from the old style, albeit iconic 100% rubber mouldings and to deliver a softer material in the entry part of the foot pocket. This enhances feel and thereby control. In addition it is more comfortable, whether on a long swim or against a tough current.
Modern material technology unaffected by the temperature
Rubber fins in warm water or left in the sun can soften, immersed in cold they will stiffen up. You may as well be diving different fins! By using an advanced techno-polymer instead of rubber, whatever the temperature the EX1 fins will give you the same familiar feel throughout the dive.
