Oceanic Vortex V12 Dive Fins Product Description

 

The Oceanic Vortex V12 Fins have been designed and made to enhance speed and efficiency. Being a split blade design, they work differently from a standard paddle blade. When kicking with a paddle blade, every up and down is a forced kick pushing water both ways. With a split fin, every up, the blade opens and allows water to spill through and every down is where you get your power. You can save huge amounts of air and energy when using a split blade and they will also prevent cramping. The Oceanic V12's and a heavy, tough fin that will last forever due to the extra thick side rails to give plenty of support to the blade itself. This fin works by creating a vortex in the water that effectively helps you on your way by giving you that thrust behind you. 

 

Keep in mind that although a split fin is fantastic for conserving air and energy, its is generally better for advanced divers and in calmer water. Once the conditions change and you hit currents, the V12 fins are not so great as they do not have the power to get you through the rough water. A new diver can get quite stressed when they feel they do not have the expected power. Keep this in mind when purchasing split fins. 

 

The Vortex V12 comes with stainless steel bungee straps that are extremely durable and last longer than the rubber straps. They are coated with a rubber jacket to prevent any catching and have a oversized handle to allow an easy on and off wven when wearing thick gloves. They are designed to be worn with a 5mm dive boot.
