The Mares Wave Open Heel Fins use a large flexible centre channel for better thrust, a combination of different materials for a controlled blade flex and Mares ABS Plus buckles to make tightening the strap even easier.
The fin blends three different materials for a controlled flex over various points of the blade. Stronger lateral ribs help the blade maintain it shape, prevent the blade from over bending and losing efficiency whilst as a large high flexibility central panel is allowed to form into a channel to control the flow of way down the blade for improved thrust.
The generous foot pocket is molded with a soft rubber upper section for improved comfort whilst raised ribs in the bottom of the pocket give it structure strength and help to reduce the suction effect when removing your foot.
The rubber strap is threaded through Mares ABS Plus buckles that are permanently attached to the fin but when the release tabs are pressed hinge out using an extension piece, lengthening the fin strap and allowing the foot to be removed. The beauty of this type of buckle is that once the strap has been adjusted to the correct length it never needs to be adjusted again.
