2017 aquabionic 1 – advanced scuba diving fin technology
The design of the aquabionic fin uses bionic principles as an approach to innovation, referencing strategies found in various marine mammals to generate the most comfortable and powerful fin ever developed. The result is the world’s first water adapting responsive propulsion system for fins, patented as warp technology.
Amplifying a diver’s kick impulse, the forced adaptive dynamic cupping and spreading of the blade actuators and central membrane dynamically modulates the surface area of the fin, capturing and accelerating more undisturbed water for the most efficient propulsion. warp technology allows the fin to be precise and maneuverable at low thrusts and powerful and responsive when more propulsion is needed.
The design features low profile side rails, eliminating side spill by aligning water flow into a mono-directional thrust. This makes the aquabionic1 not only an excellent fin for straight-line flutter kicks, but also a top performer for frog, scull, and other technical kick styles.
The result is a fin that is comfortable enough to wear all day, efficient enough to propel a fully dressed diver with minimal demands on air and energy, yet instantly powerful enough to allow the diver to negotiate the toughest currents and conditions.
Bionics applied and as close to nature as it gets.
