|Dacor DXD Pool Fin|
The new OPB (Optimized Pivoting Blade) patented system in a lightweight and high-performance full-foot fin. Blade with OPB system to optimize the lift angle during the fining action. 30% improved performance compared with traditional fins. Rib edges and blade tips in soft, thermoplastic rubber, for greater resistance against fatigue. Soft, orthopedic foot pocket, for greater comfort and efficiency. Stabilizers, for greater stability and torsional stress reduction on the ankle during the fining action.O.P.B. (Optimized Pivoting Blade).During the finning stroke, the structure of traditional fins tends to limit the flexing angle of the blade. As a result, and especially during the downward kick, only a small portion of the blade pushes the water in the direction of motion, while the remaining part pushes the water in the opposite direction.The O.P.B. system, patented by Mares, ensures that the blade is always at an optimal angle during both the upward and downward strokes, thus considerably increasing efficiency. This ensures that all the divers muscular effort translates into effective thrust in the direction of motion.Another limitation of traditional fins is the degradation of the thrust produced during the finning stroke,with substantial differences between the maximum and minimum values. The O.P.B. system, on the other hand, ensures optimal thrust throughout every phase of the finning stroke, thereby minimizing fatigue and affording much more fluid movement through the water.The O.P.B. system also makes it possible to virtually eliminate the dead angles which normally exist when using traditional fins.
