an exact kick balance while using their preferred arm stroke. As well as strengthening and toning the muscles, using the
fins during swim training gives the legs neuro-musclular memory so that when the swimmer then swims without fins, they
kick more effectively. The DMC SWIM Fins have been specifically designed to be moulded in silicone, as opposed to rubber.
The benefits of using this material far outweigh the extra cost; the silicone does not cause blisters as rubber is prone to,
and the translucent and metallic colours are an attractive marketing advantage. In addition to this, silicone is denser than
water which helps keep the feet below the surface - essential when kicking correctly. The actual blend and hardness of the
silicone used has been the result of extensive collaboration with the manufacturer, the material is soft, yet resistant to tearing
and splitting, and is UV proof.
foot fins, give exceptional comfort, and greatly reduce the incidence of cramps. The heel strap has ankle cut-outs to prevent
chafing and all the edges of the foot cavity are rounded for the same reason. The underside of the foot area has a non-slip
The angle of the blade surface relative to the foot is different to conventional fins, and has been designed to create the least
possible resistance to the kick action.
The asymmetrical plan shape of the blade allows the fin to be reasonably short and wide without the potential nuisance of the
fins bumping together while swimming, or walking - another benefit of using individual left and right foot moulds.
The "V" rails along the edges of the blade have a dual function - as well as ensuring the blade is sufficiently stiff to function
effectively and channel water along the blade.
Each of the 5 sizes has a different blade / foot area ratio to make sure that it is correct for the persons size - this means the
smaller sizes have proportionally longer blades relative to the foot pocket length to create the correct thrust.
