For the frequent flying freediver, travelling with long fins can be cumbersome, and regular snorkelling short fins often fail to provide the familiar kick and propulsion we freedivers crave.

Widening the carbon blades compensates for loss in length, while keeping the feeling of thrust and power as close to Molchanovs long blades as possible. The powerful carbon blades are paired with the popular footpockets from Pathos and Imersion, for those looking for a familiar fit.

The Pathos footpockets are lighter but harder, so socks are recommended. They fit flatter, wider feet better. The comfortable Imersions are made of soft rubber, and are more suited for narrower, taller feet.

Made from highest quality materials

  • Premium 100% carbon fibre blades
  • Ultra lightweight Pathos footpockets

Technical specifications

  • Blade Angle: 20°
  • Blade Length: 46 cm
  • Blade Width: 19-20 cm
  • Weight (One Pair): 1 kg

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.
