Performance and power
At Subea, we developed a "fin robot". This robot is a test bench that measures what the fin renders in terms of propulsion, thus what it requires in terms of energy from the diver. We can therefore deduce the efficiency of a fin.
We use this robot throughout our product development to correlate our feedback in use to a scientific measurement.
Each fin prototype is tested until we obtain the product that meets our expectations.
The part of the fin where the foot is placed.
The SCD 500 OH fin's foot pocket has been developed to perfectly fit the foot without digging in or causing discomfort during use. With your foot held perfectly in place, there is no loss of energy from the foot moving inside the foot pocket. This optimises the transfer of energy from the legs when kicking.
The flat part of the fin that helps to generate the thrust.
The blade of the SCD 500 OH is amazingly flexible while providing outstanding power under all conditions.
SUBEA has developed this blade to provide maximum thrust (fin power) while retaining a soft blade to provide maximum finning comfort.
Its central channel flexes to maximise thrust.
Try it and you won't go back.
Ease to put on / foot support
The SCD 500 OH fin's straps are made of natural rubber and polyamide. The elastic straps allow you to perfectly adjust your fins to your feet.
Very easy to use, they render classic fin straps with snap buckles completely obsolete.
Size S: 36-39, elastic length 20 cm
Size M: 40-43, elastic length 22 cm
Size L: 44-47, elastic length 24 cm
Comes with two “reducers” to adjust the strap to the ideal length for optimal comfort.
The side ribs, the position of the blade centred between these ribs and the wings at the side and tip of the blade ensure very good stability of the fin, regardless of the finning style (regular scissor kick or using the frog-kick technique).
