About Mares Volo Open Heel Fins

The Mares Volo scuba fin is a gigantic leap forward in fin technology. This fin is so revolutionary; it is covered by 8 different patents. The Volo uses Mares Optimized Pivoting Blade system (OPB); the Volo is 30% more efficient than traditional fins. The OPB allows the blade to maintain an optimal angle throughout the kicking cycle, whereas traditional fins achieve this only during a small portion of the cycle, OPB produces a constant thrust, which minimizes fatigue and produces fluid movement through the water. The Mares Volo also allows you to use alternate kick strokes not possible with splits fins.

The Volo Super-channel 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 Super-channel and two traditional lateral channels provide excellent thrust while maintaining hi-efficiency and minimizing leg fatigue. The blade is constructed of Tecralene and Thermoplastic rubber for extended durability.

The foot pocket delivers maximum power and evenly distributes pressure over the foot to minimize fatigue. The foot pocket interior features internal ribbing that improves fit, eliminates foot suction and prevents foot pocket flexing, while transmitting more power to the blade.

Volo uses Mares patented design ABS Plus Buckles (Adjustable Binding System). It only takes one quick movement to easily open or close these buckles, even when wearing thick neoprene gloves. The double button release prevents the buckles from accidentally opening making them the most user friendly system on the market.

Fin comes in four colors and three sizes, has an overall length between 23.2" to 25.2" (59 to 64 cm) and weights 2.5 lbs to 3.4 lbs (1.13 kg to 1.53 kg) depending on size, and come with a 24 month limited warranty.

The Mares Volo Open Heel Fins is commonly used for SCUBA and more. The Mares Volo Open Heel Fins is popular because customers like the following qualities of the Mares Volo Open Heel Fins: Accommodates Boots, Comfortable, Efficient.

            I am a 65 year old PADI MSDT and I love this fin over all of the others I own and use. Great response in heavy currents and yet still can frog kit in tight spots. Most of my gear is Oceanic, I would never get rid of these fins.

            I have had these since they came out years ago. I have purchased 4 pairs but still use the first ones I bought(full foot fins, larger ones for dry suit, etc). They are great for photographers who need power but can't hover with split fins. I am also able to frog kick in them which is mostly how I swim.. Full foot model run slightly big though and I do get blisters from them. These are by far the best fins I have ever used; they feel very natural on. My only compalint is that I wish they were a little more negative since my feet tend to float..

            Been using them for 150+ dives. With advantage of working at dive operator, I've tried and compared other makes and types; Volo Power is a good compromise among all aspects if you are not yet sure about your speial needs. These fins feature different flexibilities at differnet parts that respond differnetly to the effort you put in. Quite delicate. Use this feature well and they will make you happy. Like a sports car with auto-shift; Volo Power won't give you impressive 0-60 drag racing result, but will give you a pleasant ride on Autobaun.

            Comments about Mares Volo Open Heel Fins:

            I had a pair of Volo's and I traded up to VOLO Power. I installed the Spring straps, the ones that come with the fins are too complicated and do not work that well.

            I found that I had to change the way I swim, I have to kick more with my hips, keeping my leg straight, using my full leg. As opposed to kicking by bending my knees.
