These next freedive fins ooze quality, especially for competitive freedivers looking for speed who can really use the technical details to their advantage.

 

 

The Cressi Gara line has once again impressed with another stunning pair of freedive fins. The Cressi Gara Modular Sprint fins were designed utilizing costly finite element software packages that enable the design of very complex and high-caliber sections.

As if that’s not enough, Cressi developed their elastomer thermoplastic compound and can maintain quality right from the start of the material production line. The blades provide a novel method of elastic potential energy storage and release, substantially helping the freediver’s leg movement and ensuring an increase in power.

What’s the difference between Cressi’s Modular Spring vs Modular Impulse? While they have similarities in material composition, blade detachability, water rails, and even price, the ‘devilfish’ is in the detail, as they say. In short the Modular Spring provides speed while the Modular Impulse offers energy efficiency.

The Modular Spring fins, you’ll find, are essentially almost 20cm shorter and angled slightly lower than the Modular Impulse freediving fins, creating a more prominent spring in the flutter kick as the boot-to-fin energy transfer is more focused. The Modular Spring fins are ideal for freedivers looking for improved propulsion and speed, at the risk of spending more energy than with the efficient Modular Impulse Freediving Fin.
