Product Overview

An innovative design that is both efficient and powerful, Mares Avanti Super-Channel Full Foot Fins will serve the diver well in warm water conditions locally and while traveling.  The Super-Channel, which is the latest development in Mares’ Channel Thrust technology, incorporates two lateral channels and a large flexible channel, which propels water-flow more efficiently down the fin blade instead of letting it spill over the sides of the fin.  This produces optimal performance while minimizing diver effort.  Vertical ribs keep the fin stable during the kick cycle and eliminate side to side movement.

The full foot fin pocket was designed in consultation with specialized orthopedic institutes to provide optimal comfort and achieve maximum efficiency in the fin stroke. The unique positioning system for the stiff section and the soft section of the sole, makes the fin easy to put on and take off, and also provides for optimum transfer of power to the blade without sacrificing yield or risking excessive stress on the foot, which could cause cramping.

Mares Avanti Super-Channel Full Foot Fins

Ordered wrong size

The size was too big

brian carr
Zippy fins!

This is a powerful fin. They may be a little stiff for some, but they deliver great performance. I ordered the fins in my size 8 shoe size. But, the foot pockets were too large. I returned them for a size 6 1/2 to 7 1/2 size and they fit fine. The foot pocket is comfortable and the firm soles of the fin efficiently transmit power from the legs to the fins.
