Performance and power
At Subea, we developed a robot that measures a fin’s propulsion power, meaning the amount of energy the diver needs to expend. This allows us to determine a fin’s efficiency.
We use the robot throughout product development to correlate our in-use data with scientific measurements.
Each fin prototype is tested until we obtain a product that meets our expectations.
The foot pockets are where your feet go.
The SCD 500’s foot pocket was designed to hug your foot and to keep the fin firmly in place. You’ll never feel like your fin is slipping off in the water! Plus, the pocket promotes energy transfer to the blade.
The blade is the flat part of the fin.
The SCD 500 blade is soft, but amazingly flexible and powerful in all diving conditions.
It was designed to provide great thrust and optimal comfort in the water. Its central channel flexes to maximize propulsion.
Try it—you’ll be hooked!
