New aquabionic warp technology provides fins the ability to instantly adapt and continuously change the geometry of the blade, based on the demands of the diver. The unique construction of the warp1 blade allows changes in its geometry and surface area under load. At rest, the blade is relatively flat, but as the diver starts to kick, the stiff blade rails are forced to separate, and at the same time the flexible and pleated central membrane stretches to create a deep scoop to effectively channel the water to create thrust.
The aquabionic warp1 fin uses revolutionary new patent pending warp technology that automatically adapts to a divers strength and style of kick.
warp stands for “water adapting responsive propulsion”- and defines a new category for underwater propulsion.
As you kick harder the blade geometry responds by generating a three-dimensional profile required to achieve maximum efficiency and power. The fin has very low side rails, allowing it to slice cleanly through the water on the outstroke of the more technical kicks like Frog, Scull, Back-fin, and Helicopter. This reduces resistance and improves efficiency on these kicks.
