Manufacturer Reference / Part No.:
Split fins have become the most popular style fin in diving today. Just look around when you are out beach diving or on the charter boat and you will soon discover that more divers are making the switch to this style fin. Why are they so popular? They are popular because they work, and you, work less! A split fin performs more like the combination of a whale's tail and a propeller. When you kick the two separate blades twist and create more of a propeller surface which will increase your propulsion and lift. You feel as if the fin is not strong enough to keep you moving as fast as you are accustomed with your full bladed fin, yet you cover the same distance in the same time. Less Drag, More Thrust and most important Less Strength is Used. The Split Fin Design is not only unique; it uses the Latest Technology in Composite Plastic Polymer Materials to give a Light Fin (Great Travel Fin) and one that Increases Thrust and Reduces Fatigue. Extensive R&D and Testing yielded the perfect formula of Flexibility and Rigidity for Efficient Propulsion. Atomic Multi-Composite Plastics result in a Powerful Kick that requires Less Effort, Stress and Strain meaning Less Air Consumption. The Power Rails are Highly-Resilient and Perform as the Backbone of the Split Fin, Storing and Releasing Energy with Every Kick. The Semi-Ridged Flex Battens set in the Soft Elastomeric Blade, Control the Precise Wing Shape to Optimize Thrust and Reduce Drag.
How Atomic Aquatics SplitFins Work
SplitFin Wings “Slice” Through the Water
Traditional paddle fins work by pushing water rearward. As a paddle fin is pushed through the water, much of the water spills over the top surface of the blade and sticks to it, creating drag. Extra kicking effort is required to overcome that drag. The Atomic SplitFin slices through the water with two wing-shaped surfaces, creating lift and forward propulsion more like a propeller. Any water traveling over the top of the blade is funneled into and out of the opening (split) between the wings. Drag is reduced, effort is reduced, and efficiency is increased.
Propeller-Fin Technology Moves You Faster.
Atomic Aquatics SplitFins use Propeller-Fin Technology to deliver ultra-high speeds with a small-range rapid flutter kick. This works in the same manner that increasing the RPM on a boat propeller accelerates a boat to high speeds.
Multi-Composite Plastics And Other Uniquely Atomic Features
The Atomic signature is our use of exotic materials specifically designed to improve performance. We developed multi-composite plastics for the SplitFins to maximize the efficiency of the kick with less fatigue. Flexible side rails and a stiff foot pocket are combined with stiff battens in the blade to control the flex pattern for optimum performance. Our patented EZ-LOK Buckle System is one of those distinct Atomic features that make divers love us even more.
