Molchanovs Bi-fins

Molchanovs bi-fins are the premium bi-fins for effective and comfortable underwater swimming. Excellent materials and superb manufacturing process result in very thin, light and responsive blades that offer outstanding thrust for deep diving, and have even been used to depths of over 100 meters! Molchanovs bi-fins are available in:

Fibreglass bi-fins

Molchanovs bifin blades made with the same ultra-high compression fiberglass used to manufacture their monofins. The UHC Fiberglass is a high-performance fibreglass made using over fifty times the pressure of other fibreglass long fins. The blades are shaped by hand to give it its unique flexibility. The result is a softer, more responsive yet more powerful fin.

Fibreglass bifins with Imersion foot pockets

Foot pocket options
All Molchanovs F1 fibreglass bi-fins come with custom open-heel foot pockets. The new model foot pockets have thinner wings and a softer, more accurate shape. Custom Molchanovs foot pockets provide left and right foot pockets, that fit to you foot length and foot circumference. The sole is strong to transfer the foot motion to the blade, and the foot pocket rails are soft to allow the blade to do the full job. Any foot size can be accommodated with custom pockets.

The fibreglass F1 bi-fins can also be fitted with Immersion foot pockets, which have a soft and comfortable foot pocket that allow you to spend hours in the water. Carbon shoe inserts by Molchanovs are available to harden the soles which improves the fins’ response. Although the carbon inserts are just 1 mm thick, they add to your size: so if you are comfortable with size 41, you should order 42-44 foot pocket with inserts for your comfort. So even if your size is 37, you can swim well in 38-40 footpockets with inserts.

Pathos foot pockets are also available, and have sturdier yet very light foot pockets.

Blades only: or order blades only and install with your choice of foot pocket.

Blade stiffness
Available in soft, medium and hard.

Care
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.

CS1 and C1 (carbon) bi-fins

760 mm long blades created from aerospace carbon fabrics are made with advanced vacuum infusion production technology providing maximum strength and elasticity. The specially designed blade is made for the most effective stroke, requiring the minimum effort. A careful manufacturing process results in fins that are comparable to monofin performances. The blades are lightweight – precise production results in very thin and light but powerful blades, making them convenient to take travelling. The shark skin texture at the bottom of the blade reduces light reflection and improves the fin’s performance. Rough shark skin also creates micro turbulence, which improves performance. A smooth top is the result of the vacuum process only.

Blade stiffness
Available in soft, medium and hard.

Colour option
The logo colour is available in blue, white, pink or green. Gold is also available at an additional cost.
