Molchanovs carbon bifins (Pathos foot pockets)


Molchanovs carbon bifins can be fitted with Pathos foot pockets, and have sturdier yet very light foot pockets and are popular among spearfishers. The combination of Pathos foot pockets and Molchanovs blades present one of the lightest carbon fins in the world: 1165 g for medium stiffness blades and foot pockets size 40-42.

All Molchanovs bifins are made-to-order, and ship directly from the factory in Russia.

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 colours and are paired here with tried and true Pathos foot pockets, which come in a large variety of foot sizes. It is recommended that you wear diving socks with the Pathos foot pockets.

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 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.
