DMC SWIM Fins are used by Australian and International Olympic Swimming Team Members. The superior quality DMC Swim training short fins have been specifically designed to be molded in silicone to avoid any kind of abrasion.
The principal function of the DMC SWIM Fins is to enable anyone from a novice to an Olympic standard swimmer to achieve an exact kick balance while using their preferred arm stroke. As well as strengthening and toning the muscles, using the fins during swim training gives the legs neuromuscular memory so that when the swimmer then swims without fins, they kick more effectively.
Our Swim training short fins have been specifically designed to be molded in silicone, as opposed to rubber. The benefits of using this material far outweigh any extra cost; the silicone does not cause abrasion as rubber is prone to. In addition to this, silicone is denser than water which helps keep the feet below the surface.
Our swimming training short fins also create â€˜liftâ€™ to keep the feet toward the surface at all times which is essential when kicking correctly. The actual blend and hardness of the silicone used has been the result of extensive collaboration with the manufacturer, the material is soft, yet resistant to tearing and splitting, and is also UV proof.
The shape of the foot pockets have been the subject of considerable research as has the dedicated left and right foot fins which provide exceptional comfort and greatly reduce the incidence of cramps. The heel strap has ankle cut-outs to prevent chafing and all the edges of the foot cavity are rounded for the same reason.
The angle or â€˜camâ€™ of the blade surface relative to the foot is different to conventional fins, and has been designed to create the least possible resistance to the kick action. The asymmetrical plan shape of the blade allows the fin to be reasonably short and wide without the potential nuisance of the fins bumping together while swimming or walking. This is also another great benefit of using individual left and right foot moulds.
The "V" rails along the edges of the blade have a dual function and help to ensure the blade is sufficiently stiff to function effectively and channel water along the blade. Each of the 5 sizes has a different blade-to-foot area ratio to make sure that it is correct for the personâ€™s foot size This ensures that the smaller sizes have proportionally longer blades relative to the foot pocket length to create the correct thrust. DMC SWIM Fins represent world class Australian design at its best.

- strengthening and toning the muscles

I needed new fins, as the hard rubber ones I purchased were too slim and caused foot cramps when I wore them. I found the Tech 2s after visiting several review websites, and decided to try them out. I am thrilled with the fit, comfort, speed. They are a little large on me, but I can easily remedy that with either some swim socks. Even a bit large they are miles beyond my old fins.★★★★★
I purchased a pair of Tech 2 fins when the fins I had been using caused blisters. The material used in the Tech 2 fins is soft and comfortable and cause no problems with discomfort. They worked so well that I purchased a pair for my wife who was also fighting blisters with her other fins. We are both very satisfied with the comfort and performance of the Tech 2 Swim Fins.★★★★☆
Tech 2 Swim Finz did the job
Quaker, Washington DC
I ordered these sight-unseen because I was recovering from a sprained ankle and needed to get in the water on a snorkeling trip with something that would put less stress on my ankle. The Swim 2000 phone agent was very helpful in describing the pros and cons of different training fins. The Hydro Tech 2 Finz saved the day for me. They were easy on the ankles yet gave me enough thrust to keep up with my family. Was very happy with this purchase.★★★★★

Best fins I have ever used

I intended to buy these fins for surf rescues and PWC (Personal Water Craft) aka jetski. I tried them in the pool during a swim workout and fell in love with them. I am going to buy second pair for a rescue equipment. Good buy Zoomers. Viva Tech 2 Swim Fins!!
