Atomic Aquatics Split Fins
For those Divers who believe in SplitFins, we have the Atomic Aquatics Split Fins in Open Heel Design for Scuba Diving.
All it took was watching the tail fins of
fish – except that we couldn’t
keep up with them because our traditional fins took too much effort. Using hard
kicking paddle fins can result in leg strain, fatigue and cramping. Because of
the kick resistance of a paddle fin, divers often “felt” like they
were moving fast. But underwater speedometers proved that these divers were
actually moving relatively slow. SplitFins deliver more propulsion with less
kick with less effort. Reducing the stress and strain of the kick results in
greater sustained speed, power and comfort. Independent testing has also confirmed
that the SplitFin design significantly reduces air consumption.
Not all SplitFins are the same.
Splitfins come in a variety of shapes, sizes and stiffness. These contribute
greatly to overall comfort and performance. A fin with short, soft blades will
kick easier than a longer, stiffer one, but will require many more kicks to
travel the same distance. A blade that is too stiff will require too much effort
to kick comfortably. The Atomic SplitFins were specifically designed to optimize
all these variables. They are easy kicking fins that deliver high thrust, speed,
and efficiency with a comfortable, low frequency kick cycle.

Why Multi-Composite Plastics?
Extensive R&D and testing yielded the perfect formula of flexibility and
rigidity for efficient propulsion. Atomic multi-composite plastics result in
a powerful kick that requires less effort, stress and strain…meaning less air
Traditional paddle fins work by pushing water rearward. As a paddle fin is
pushed through the water, much of the water spills over the top surface of
the blade and sticks to it, creating drag. Extra kicking effort is required
to overcome that drag. The Atomic SplitFin slices through the water with two
wing-shaped surfaces, creating lift and forward propulsion more like a propeller.
Any water traveling over the top of the blade is funneled into and out of the
opening (split) between the wings. Drag is reduced, effort is reduced, and
efficiency is increased.
Moves You Faster
Atomic Aquatics SplitFins use Propeller-Fin Technology to deliver ultra-high
speeds with a small-range rapid flutter kick. This works in the same manner
that increasing the RPM on a boat propeller accelerates a boat to high speeds.
And Other Uniquely Atomic Features
The Atomic signature is our use of exotic materials specifically designed to
improve performance. We developed multi-composite plastics for the SplitFins
to maximize the efficiency of the kick with less fatigue. Flexible side rails
and a stiff foot pocket are combined with stiff battens in the blade to control
the flex pattern for optimum performance. Our patented EZ-LOK Buckle System
is one of those distinct Atomic features that make divers love us even more.

Spring Heel Straps
Another “rethinking” of something simple, the unique
rust-resistant stainless steel springs were designed with variable pitch
geometry. Divers get a more comfortable
fit and easy one-hand removal, yet the springs are resistant to deformation
if overstretched. Included on the “Smoke on the Water” Splitfin
and available for all Atomic SplitFins or as a universal retrofit for other
The Universal Spring Straps share the same features
found on Atomic Springs, but are made to fit almost any other brand of open
heel fins. Available
in medium and long.
We do weekly orders with Atomic Aquatics. While we stock some colours and sizes we do not carry the entire split range in stock. Please call for availability. If we are out of stock we would have the order in 7-10 days typically.
