PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The principal function of the DMC Silicone Fin is to enable anyone from a novice to an Olympic standard swimmer to achieve an exact balanced kick, while using their preferred armstroke. As well as strengthening and toning the muscles, using the fins during swim training gives the legs neuro-muscular memory so that when the swimmer then swims without fins, they kick more effectively.


High Quality Performance

  • The DMC Silicone Fins have been specifically designed to be molded in silicone, as opposed to rubber because silicone does not cause blisters as rubber is prone to.
  • Helps keep the feet below the surface - essential when kicking correctly because of silicone material.
  • Resistant to tearing and splitting.
  • UV proof.

Hours of Research for Your Comfort

  • Shape of the foot pockets have had considerable research conducted to find optimal shape.
  • Dedicated left and right foot fins.
  • Exceptional comfort.
  • Greatly reduce the incidence of cramps.
  • Heel strap has ankle cut-outs to prevent chafing.
  • Edges of the foot cavity are rounded to prevent chafing.

Less Resistance for Faster Swimming

  • Underside of the foot area has non-slip tread pattern which makes walking round the pool less hazardous.
  • Tumble turns (or Flip-Turns) and diving are safer too.
  • Designed to create the least possible resistance to the kick action.
  • No potential nuisance of the fins bumping together while swimming, or walking.

Ultimate Fit and Functionality

  • Sufficiently stiff to function effectively and channel water along the blade.
  • Hydro Sportz have patented fins.
  • Unique shape of rails gives the product its distinctive appearance and cannot be copied.
  • Each of the 5 sizes has a different blade/foot area ratio to make sure that it is correct for each person's size.
  • Smaller sizes have proportionally longer blades relative to the foot pocket length to create the correct thrust.

    Feels true to size

    These fins are much more responsive than the traditional long flimsy fins most swimmers use which lag behind the kick. They are more true to the actual motion the foot makes during underwater dolphin kicking and swimming. As a result, I''ve been forced to generate more power from my torso and hips as apposed to just my legs during underwater dolphin kicking, as well as generate more power from the up-kick. They''re also a bit faster than traditional fins IMO, and easier to do turns with.

    Lastly, I wear a size 11 - 11.5 shoe but ordered the Mens 8-9 in these fins. My big toe bumps against the end of the foot pocket and even has to crumple a little to fit inside, but once I start kicking the foot pocket seems to stretch slightly and all is good. They are very comfortable, leaving no blisters or abrasions

    These fins feel good on and really have improved my kicking. Besides - they make you go and feel fast! Probably one of the more expensive fins on the market but they are well worth it!

    Feels too big

    I swim with a Masters group and our coach recommended these (no more Zoomers ). Love the way the legs kick in these, I can feel it up and down the whole leg.  
    I ordered my shoe size and they were too big so I exchanged them for the next size down and these fit perfect.

    I swim laps at the Y with these fins - 1 mile (70+ pool lengths) , 4X per week.  I had tried four other (cheaper ) fins via Amazon.  I couldn''t wear any of those for more than 15-20 laps before they started irritating my feet, wearing sores or rub spots.  I returned them all.  I decided to try one more time, this time spending bigger bucks.  It was worth the money.  The silicone rubber is "full-foot" and reasonably soft.  These fins don''t irritate my feet.  Size 10-11 was perfect (just a little loose) for my size 10 feet.  If you are a lap swimmer, try ''em, you will like ''em.

    In general, I think these are VG fins.  They have given me blisters, however, but far less times than with other types of fins.  I have decided to use fin socks which are great.  When using the socks with the fins, I have had no blisters, however, it makes the fins tighter since there is more bulk but I bought the fins a little bigger than my usual size anyway as my size was N/A at time of purchase.  As far as the training aspect, there was a difference in my calf muscles being used more when I first started using them.  However, I still don''t move any more forward in the water wo the fins than what I did previously, so I don''t know if the training aspect is viable. In summary, these are great fins--less blisters and not sure about the training hipe.

    I really like it, but it´s a bit loose on my feet. It takes sometime to get used of it, but you can make it.

    Excellent fins. I wear a size 7.5 shoe. The fins fit very well, a little loose since I have a narrow foot but very comfortable. Recd my order ahead of time. The order process is very easy. I will definitely shop here again.

ABOUT THIS BRAND

DMC Swim

Don McCredie was a Professional firefighter and an active member of his local Surf Life Saving Club at Coogee Beach, NSW, Australia.He was also a strong swimmer who competed in many different sporting events and in 1983 won the title of the World Surf life Saving Bodysurfing Champion. Through these endeavors, and after several trips to Hawaii in the mid 80’,s while competing regularly in Bodysurfing contests, he became interested in water flow and fluid dynamics. Don’s idea was to design and create a type of swim propulsion fin that would revolutionize his chosen sport. The Hydro Fins were born.

Calls to an established high quality rubber company initiated the process of the fins intimate production. The rubber company produced molds and manufactured the product for export to Australia and the USA, Japan and Europe. Don travelled extensively to secure distributors for his one and only product – and due to its unique patented qualities and performance, gained sales and recognition worldwide. Since then over a million pairs of Hydro Fin products have been sold in over 20 countries in several different models of which have updated since the original design. Hydro Fins are now manufactured in the world’s largest rubber swim fin factory.

The Hydro brand was sold and Don started Dmcswim.com. His swimming knowledge and product innovation has combined to create the DMC Swim Fins and a line of swimming products that would suit the new beginner through to the serious aquatic athlete. Don is now a qualified swim coach and trains local swimming athletes of all ages using his own unique methods and training aids born of the DMC Swim range. All around the world, top class swimmers are turning to DMC Swim Fins for their choice of training fins and training aids.
