What's in the box: Pair of Aqualung Hotshot Open Heel Fins
Most dive fins that are designed for Scuba are longer than the 22" to 24"(55.9 to 61 cm). This length is the magic number for most airlines size limits for carry-on bags. If there were a fin that was short enough, yet powerful enough for Scuba that could come in under that size it could revolutionize the art of the traveling diver! If you are a traveling diver and hate to check your gear bag as luggage and would rather keep it as a carry-on Aqua Lung's Hot Shot Open Heel Fin is the fin for you.
This amazing fin has been engineered with the traveling diver in mind. If you want Unsurpassed Comfort, Compactness for Carry-On Travel, and the Power for a Fully-Outfitted Scuba Diver then you have found your fin.
First let's shed some traditional gear. This fin is designed to wear without dive boots, so leave the boots at home. Aqua Lung has designed the Foot Pocket to give Unsurpassed Comfort with the Top-and-Side of the Pocket manufactured from a Soft, Comfortable against the Bare Skin Material. Next, Aqua Lung has a unique Self-Adjusting Comfo-Strap that is Buckle Free. Just pull this Elastomer Strap over your heel for guaranteed Comfort. Lastly, a Mid-Foot Flex Joint further Relieves your Foot from Rubbing in the Foot Pocket when Fining.
Compact and Lightweight are the next important factors to the Traveling Diver, with length the key to whether its luggage to check in or a carry-on friendly size. The Hot Shot is an amazing 20.9" (53 cm) in length, it fits in a Carry-On Bag with room to spare. The regular size Hot Shot Fins weigh in at a mere 3.28 lbs (1.5 kg)
Now is it Powerful enough for a Fully Outfitted Scuba Diver? You bet it is! Due to the Mid-Foot Flex Joint, the entire Length of Blade Flexes and provides Forward Thrust. With a traditional Fin, the Third-of-the-Blade in Front of the Foot Pocket is considered Dead Space and provides No-Forward Thrust. The result is that the Hot Shot provides the Power of a Fin that is 30%-Longer! The Hot Shot is Geared-with-Silicone-Slings (power bands) that are Loaded-with-Energy during the Power Stroke, which they Release prior to the Fins Upstroke, and they are Adjustable!
The Power Bands form the Hot Shot Twin-Speed Gear Shift. These Pure Silicone Bands can be adjusted, even when worn, to change the Speed-to-Effort ratio of the Fin Blade. In addition, the Non-Vented Blade is made from a Semi-Rigid Customized Techno-Polymer that gives an Excellent Spring Effect and Flexibility to Maximize Thrust, and the Rubberized Ribs of the Blades are made of Two-Different Compounds to provide the Greatest Elasticity. So if you are looking for the perfect travel fin look no further!
