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 foot pocket of the SCD 500 fin was specially developed to hug the shape of the foot and to keep the fin firmly in place on the foot. This means that you will never have the feeling of "losing" your fin and it enables maximum energy transfer to the blade of the fin.
The flat part of the fin that helps to generate the thrust.
The blade of the SCD 500 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.
Dimensions and weight of a pair of fins (size EU 42/43)
Length: 66 cm.
Width: 22.5 cm.
Weight: 1.4 kg (per pair).
Positive buoyancy (it floats lightly)
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 kicking technique (regular scissor kick or frog kick).
Tips for storage and maintenance
Store flat in a dry place away from light.
TESTS AND WARRANTY
Designed and tested by our teams and our technical partner in Hendaye (France).
Our technical partner: Planet Ocean (the PADI 5-star diving centre) based at the WaterSports Centre by DECATHLON in Hendaye - France. The centre uses SUBEA equipment throughout the year.
The team of instructors are rigorously involved in the development of our SUBEA diving products: from the design phase with the SUBEA team (product manager, designers and engineers), to the endurance tests with the help of the centre’s divers (from beginners to trainee instructors, all year long).
