MANTIS DRY FIN

Optimized for weight and balance, these rubber kickers provide strong, dynamic propulsion. Primarily
designed for drysuit diving, they are
on the heavier side and feature
large foot pockets to
accommodate drysuit boots.
Available with spring
straps or adjustable
straps.

  • Flexible Foot Pocket Easy to put on and take off
    Close Flexible Foot Pocket The foot pocket is constructed using a more pliant rubber material allowing for more flexibility. This makes it easier to put on and take off the fin, even for first time users.

  • Smooth Water Flow Blade Tip Allows water to escape smoothly
    Smooth Water Flow Blade Tip The V-shaped tip of the blade allow water to smoothly flow away from the fin as you kick. This allows the blade to rebound more quickly ultimately allowing you to kick more efficiently without tiring out during your session.

  • Hybrid Rubber Greater Propulsion
    Hybrid Rubber Gull’s innovative production methods integrate varying stiffness levels of rubber for the foot pocket, ribs, and blades of a fin. Each engineered carefully for powerful and smooth propulsion.

  • Raised Ribs Stronger down kicks
    Raised Ribs The raised blade ribs eliminate side planing and blade twist, which would otherwise occur with long fins. Fin work is smooth. The ribs maximize rubber rebound to enable you to enjoy confident, powerful propulsion.

Performance

Fin Weight Comparison

The greater mass of the thick soles of Dry Fins shifts the center of gravity further down the leg than ankle weights. This makes it easier to keep your trim stable.
*Assuming 500 g ankle weights are worn.

Comparison With Mantis Fin

With a bigger boot pocket they are easier to get on and off. Ankle weights are not needed because the fins themselves have sufficient mass. If you are confident in your leg strength and want fins that provide more dynamic propulsion, these fins are made for you.
