Picasso‰۪s Carbon Explosion Top Fins are optimally designed to provide maximum response with minimal effort. When comparing this TOP model with previous standard models is the absence of the total lateral rubber protection and is only present for 12cm along the v-shaped tips of the fins. This was included in the design to eradicate limitations to the performance of the carbon along the middle portion of the 78cm blade, which would otherwise have impeded function due to tension between the materials.
The reduction in total materials also means that the fins are lighter, making the diving experience even smoother and more efficient. This minimal rubber strip will still provide the canalizing effect on the water, channelling the water displaced in each kick directly down the length of the blade thus providing more power to each kick and protecting the tips from shocks against the bottom.
The medium stiffness of the blade means that excessive power is not required in each kick, and a more energy efficient style of kicking can be implemented and produce the same speed. This means that more energy can be focused on breath hold and therefore time at depth.
- Medium stiffness
- 78cm Blade Length
- Carbon Blade
- Very good performance with minimum effort and weight
