Energy Efficient
Cressi Gara Modular Impulse

One of our favorite freediving fins on the market, the Cressi Gara Modular Impulse fins with fiberglass blades are ideal for efficient use of energy. They also hit a nice price-for-performance mark.

The fin boasts many thought-out and purpose-built features which tell you the manufacturers were thinking about delivering superior performance, in and out of the water.

The three words that come to mind with this product are efficiency, comfort, lightweight.

We weren’t too sure what to expect when trying these fins on but, boy did they impress. While the stiffness of the fiberglass blade is on the softer side, you may still elicit an incredible snap response from them.

Additionally, the blades are complemented with water rails along the side of the blade to prevent any lateral sliding which can be useful to weaker freedivers. What’s more is that–as implied in the name–these fins have a modular design which means that the interchangeable blade can be upgraded to carbon fiber in the future
for optimal performance.
