Atomic SplitFins

Atomic Aquatics SplitFins with Natures Wing Propeller Fin Technology | A radical new approach to diver propulsion. With the slightest kick, the split fin blade deflects to form a pair of wings that slice through the water with reduced drag, creating lift in the forward direction to propel you ahead. Compared to conventional fins, the Atomic SplitFin swims with less effort, stress and strain resulting in greater sustained speed, power and comfort. Independent testing has shown that this split design can significantly reduce air consumption! | Atomic Split Fins For over twenty years, Dean Garraffa and Doug Toth have been innovators in the diving industry with over a dozen patents to their credit from BC's to regulators to snorkels. In 1995 they founded Atomic Aquatics in Huntington Beach, California.

Atomic Aquatics introduced the world's finest titanium regulators, whose innovative features and record breaking performance have become industry benchmarks. These were the first of many exciting new products to be coming your way.

Atomic SplitFins

Your conventional paddle fins are just that. They work by pushing some of the water rearward like an old paddlewheel steamship. As a paddle fin is pushed through the water, much of the water spills over the top surface of the blade and sticks to it, creating drag. Extra kicking effort is needed to overcome that drag.

Atomic SplitFins feature Natures Wing Propeller Fin Technology | The Atomic Aquatics Split Fins virtually eliminate muscle strain, fatigue and cramping to enable you to swim longer distances against stronger currents. Divers have reported being able to make headway against currents they would not normally be able to overcome with paddle type fins. | Atomic Split FinsIn contrast, Atomic Aquatics SplitFins use Natures Wing ® Propeller Fin Technology, which delivers ultra-high speeds with a small-range rapid flutter kick in the same manner that increasing the RPM on a boat's propeller accelerates a boat to high speeds. Independent tests by Scuba Diving Magazine, have proven Split Fins to be 20% more efficient than conventional paddle blade fins.

The SplitFin slices though the water with two wing shaped surfaces, creating lift and forward propulsion more like a propeller. Any water traveling over the top of the blade is funneled into and out of the opening (split) between the blades. Drag is reduced, effort is reduced and efficiency is increased.

 


The Reef-Red, Pink, and Purple Atomic SplitFins are made from a soft high-performance thermoplastic rubber material. This unique material enables divers to experience the same performance as the standard Atomic SplitFins while requiring even less physical effort.

The newest Atomic Aquatics SplitFin, "Smoke on the Water" gives an exciting new look to basic black, combining opaque and semi-transparent materials together for a beautiful rich looking effect. The foot pocket and side rails of the fin are molded from the exclusive high energy polymer used in Atomic Reef Red and Liquid Blue models. Accompanying the new look, "Smoke on the Water" is fitted with the newest innovation, the Atomic Aquatics Spring Strap.
