The OMS Slipstream Monoprene Fins with Spring Heel Straps are considered by many to be the ultimate fin for technical, wreck and cave diving. The lightweight, high performance OMS Slipstream Fins include the OMS Spring Straps, making them even easier to get on and off.
The ever popular OMS Slipstream Fins were so revolutionary when first released that the US Navy cut their swim time by one minute on a 500 metre swim!
For the ultimate control, backwards finning and power, nothing beats the OMS Slipstream Fins. If you need to avoid kicking up the silt in a wreck or cave, again, nothing beats it.
Today's divers are environmentally conscious and the OMS Slipstream Fin has a lower impact on the ecosystem. This is because the lighter weight assists the diver's ability to keep their feet up and off the bottom. This is especially desirable when swimming over a reef or coral. Photographers love the OMS Slipstream fin as it helps keep their fins off the bottom so they don’t disturb the sand helping them get that perfect shot.
Technical, wreck and high performance divers often prefer a low-silting kick and the OMS Slipstream fins are ideal. This is what is termed 'keeping your fins in the water column'. OMS Slipstream fins will improve your dive and overall dive performance.
Another huge advantage to the OMS Slipstream fins is that they are ideal for travel. Whether you are a recreational, technical, or wreck diver, when you travel you face luggage weight restrictions. OMS Slipstreams are a smart option to help you.
The OMS Slipstream Fins sport a design similar to the venerable Jet Fin. But instead of rubber, this proven fin design features a lightweight, distortion resistant blade made out of Monoprene resin — a thermoplastic elastomer — that delivers rubber-like performance, but is much lighter. Indeed, this fin looks heavy, but it weighs no more than many modern fin designs.
The OMS Splipstream Fins deliver better trim positioning with maximum thrust on the down kick, and minimal resistance on the up kick. Technical divers appreciate this fin's manoeuvrability.
The smallest size made is Large, so this is a fin that clearly caters to wetsuit and drysuit divers who need extra room for heavy-gauge neoprene or drysuit boots.
OMS Spring Heel Straps
OMS have made the Slipstream Fins even better because they now come standard with OMS Spring Heel Straps.
Ever forget to adjust your fin strap before donning your dive gloves? Break a rubber fin buckle or strap? Get your gloves caught in your fin strap? Concerned about entanglement issues or line traps? You'll really enjoy the Spring Heel Straps that now come standard on all OMS Slipstream Fins.
Spring Heels are a non-adjustable, comfortable, stainless steel spring strap which are covered in durable yet pliable nylon. This unique attachment mechanism is low profile, which prevents entanglement in inline traps. The straps automatically adjust to the diver's feet and also automatically adjust at depth for compression. You'll feel secure and safe while diving with Spring Heel Straps.
Each size of the OMS Slipstream Fins has a different length spring heel strap for a perfect fit. Some brands take a one length for all sizes approach, but this causes excessive coil expansion and becomes too tight when used with larger boots. It also facilitate line entanglement in between expanded coils! The OMS approach stops all of this.
