VROOM! Speed, Comfort, and Maneuverability; you can have it all with the Vortex V-16 The V-16 combines the Patented Design Concepts divers have come to expect from Oceanic with a new mix of materials that enhance performance and style Compared to conventional fins, the V-16 is up to 30% Faster and more Efficient, with Less Effort, Stress and Strain resulting in Greater Comfort and Control.

The Oceanic Vortex V16 Split Open Heel Fins are a Precision Blend of Hydrodynamics and Materials Technology for Ultimate Comfort, Efficiency and Performance Fins are manufactured from a Composite Material consisting of a Blend of Thermal Plastic Rubber (TPR) and Polypropylene. The technological edge is achieved with the Patented Nature's Wing Technology by Splitting the Blade to Generate Highly Efficient Thrust or Lift like an Airplane Wing, while reducing the Strain on the Muscles of the Leg and Hips by allowing the water to drain between the Dual Blades. With the Vortex V-16, Oceanic's design team has worked long and hard to create just the right combination of fin size, shape, and angle.

The Oversized Rails add Rigidity to the Oversized Blade for Increased Lift and Efficiency. Semi-Rigid Battens and Rubber Flex Channels within the Blade Precisely Control the Shape of the Blade during the Fin Stroke to Optimize Power and Reduce Drag. The Ergonomically Designed Foot Pocket accommodates virtually all foot sizes and boot styles and the Angled Blade provide the Preferred Angle of Attack. Donning and Doffing is made easy with the Spring Heel Straps with Large Pull-Tab Thumb Loops in Straps for Grip. The Pull-Tab Thumb Loops also allow a convenient manner to hang your fins when drying and for storage. The Vortex V-16 Fins weigh 4.7 to 5.7 lbs (2.13 to 2.59 kg) depending on the size, is available in 4 sizes of X-Small, Small, Medium or X-Large and is covered by a 12 month limited warranty.

      Loving how easy these fins make it to glide through the water. Only downfall was getting use to the spring strap. It took a few dives to get use to.
