Rating: Mares Avanti Super Channel Adjustable Strap Fins
Reviewer: Thomas M.  -  View all my reviews
I really like these fins. I had been diving with the Sherwood split fins for a few years which I felt were not giving me very good thrust. I found about these fins via a November 2007 review of 18 new fins which ranked them very highly. These fins are comfortable, very light and provide excellent thrust whether using a standard stroke or a frog stroke. They also have a very ingenious strap system which enables you to push a button on either side of the strap to "open" the strap and get your foot in or out with ease. Great fins at a very reasonable price!

410012 - Avanti Superchannel 

Avanti Superchannel OH

The latest evolution in Channel Thrust technology

• Rugged and durable contruction
• Anatomical open heel foot pocket
• ABS Plus buckles

The Avanti Superchannel is designed for the diver who wants the perfect blend of power and efficiency in one fin. The new blade design with a large central Superchannel and two traditional lateral channels provide excellent thrust while maintaining high efficiency and minimizing leg fatigue.
Product Details
Code: 410012
Colors: yl, bl, bk
Sizes: S-R-XL
Blade: 37cm
Material: Thermoplastic rubber/Tecralene®

Product Features

Channel Thrust: Soft longitudinal inserts allow a controlled deformation of the fin blade while kicking. This channel shape moves a greater amount of water resulting in more thrust for the same effort. Mares design is inspired by marine mammals.

Latest development in Channel Thrust is the Superchannel. The blade is designed with a large flexible central Superchannel propelling water-flow more effi ciently down the fin blade instead of letting it spill over the sides for optimal performance and minimal diver effort. The limiting factors in traditional open heel foot pockets are their weight and the “parachute effect”. When finning, water gets into the space between the bootie and the foot pocket, creating drag like the air in a parachute. The perforations prevent this and have the additional benefit of making the foot pocket very soft and flexible.

Furthermore, the suction effect which can make doffing of the fins cumbersome, is now forever a thing of the past.

ABS Plus Buckles: These unique, patented buckles are the most simple and easy to use buckles available in the market. It only takes one quick movement to easily open or close the buckle, even when wearing thick neoprene gloves.

The double button release prevents the buckle from accidentally opening.

Open Heel Foot Pockets: The open heel foot pocket is designed to accommodate dive boots with a sole, and to offer excellent adherence between the boot and the foot pocket in order to transfer all the force exerted by the leg to the blade, without sacrificing yield yet still ensuring superior comfort. The lower section of the foot pocket is longer, in order to better transfer power to the blade and minimize the risk of cramping.

In addition, the inside of the foot-pocket features internal ribbing to improve fit and stiffen the sole.
