100% carbon fiber Molchanovs C1 Blades are handmade using vacuum infusion – a more expensive and time-consuming process but one that produces a higher carbon fibre-to-resin ratio in a thinner, lighter and more responsive blade. This result is a blade with amazing feel yet is powerful enough to set multiple world records.
Molchanovs C1 Blades come in three different stiffness levels in a variety of colors. These light blades give a wonderful, responsive thrust when finning due to its unique ‘shark skin’ textured underside. The rough underside creates microturbulence in the water that flows faster and lowers the pressure of the water around the underside of the fin. This eases the back kick while finning, allowing for a smoother, less strenuous kick cycle.
The overall length of the blade is 76cm, and the length from the angle to the tip is 63cm.
The blades are made to withstand strong underwater moves in any direction and consequently provide powerful thrust. However, don’t walk with the fins on rough rocks and don’t drop heavy solid objects, such as cameras with underwater gear, weights, etc. – the blade could crack or break. We suggest washing off salt and keeping the fins away from the strong sun and heat.
