Product Details

The Alpha Fins from Aqua Sphere are an unusually shaped swim training fin that are 70% lighter than traditional swim fins. This gives much more buoyancy to lift your body higher in the water and improve your body position. The blade is located on top of the foot pocket for optimum power transfer and a full arch support provides added comfort. The specific left and right foot design achieves a better kicking motion and encourages body rotation. A super light, soft and very comfortable swim fin for swim training.

Features

  • Increase Speed: swimming with fins propels you through the water faster and your legs work harder then they would without fins to maintain the speed. You are able to maintain that quicker pace wearing swim fins, but without fins you would quickly become fatigued. Using swim fins will ultimately make your leg muscles stronger to enable you to swim faster.
  • Improve Leg Strength and Flexibility: Fins will force your feet to extend and flex beyond their normal range of motion, plus the extra force on your ankles as you kick will improve your ankle flexibility. The water resistance fins create, because of the increased surface area of your foot, builds up strength in your legs.
  • Improve Body Position: The buoyancy of fins means that they will help you to keep your legs and overall body position higher in the water.
  • Improve Racing Technique: Swimming with fins allows you to swim at typical race speeds without the fatigue that that brings. You are therefore able to swim as in a race, which means your body movements are faster than they are in typical swim training.

    These fins are really stiff so be prepared for soreness after your first couple of workouts as they'll work your hip flexers pretty intensely. Otherwise they're super light and fit great. I'm a size 12, regular (US) and they fit perfectly.

    Light weight
    Light weight, buoyant, helps maintain a good body position. Flexible fins therefore provide a good level of propulsion. Comfortable fit and fairy easy to turn on.
