About Mares Volo Race Full Foot Fins

The combination of Optimized Pivoting Blade system (OPB) and Super Channel Thrust technology make the Volo Race the perfect fin for divers who want to increase their kick efficiency with minimum effort. The use of OPB for controlling and optimizing the thrust angle, and Super Channel Thrust Technology for perfect routing of the water flow across the fin blade, make Volo Race the divers choice. Rubber covered stabilizers provide improved performance. Divers and snorkeler's alike will enjoy this easy kicking fin.

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 Race also allows you to use alternate kick strokes not possible with splits fins.

The Volo Race 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.

Fin comes in six sizes and three colors; overall fin length is 23.2" to 28.1" (59 to 71.5 cm) and weights 2.2 lbs to 3.8 lbs (1.02 kg to 1.74 kg). Fins come with a 24 month limited warranty.

So if high performance with minimal exertion, maximum comfort and exceptional light weight - a combination that makes diving more enjoyable, is what you want then Volo Race is what you want.

I bought these for my snorkeling trip to the Keys and they worked out great. The fit nicely and were easy to use. I was able to mix up my kicks which made them fairly versatile. Of course I've only tried them with snorkeling but the seem to be perfect. I've read reviews of the old models breaking where the flex is but I can't really comment due to I've only used them on one outing. Bottom line is I'm very satisfied with these and would recommend them to others.

okay fin

Would probably have given 4 stars if I didn't have a pair of Superchannels first. Good fin, just not as comfortable powerful and responsive as the superchannels.

      Comments about Mares Volo Race Full Foot Fins:

      I bought these to have a set of closed heel fins and now they are my "go-to" fins. Very light and very flexible. Kick hard enough and you'll almost come right out of the water. the fit is a little larger than I like, but once in the water I didn't notice.

      Comments about Mares Volo Race Full Foot Fins:

      These are the easiest kicking fin I've ever tried...but, still really effective. Flutter kicking was easy with no cramps unless I was really over doing it. A couple of guys snorkeling around me noticed how fast I could move when I wanted to...when I see something interesting I want to JET over to see it before a flock of snorkelers attacks! In terms of a fit...I wear a size 12 shoe and my feet are kind of wide. The 11-12 fit me perfectly but I did put on a pair of the nylon dive socks so that I would be more comfortable. Anything thicker than nylon socks would have been too thick. I LOVE these fins!
