Avanti Pure Fins
The Mares Avanti Pure Fins are a shorter pair of open heel fins but still have the power to move you through the water. Twin materials change the shape of the blade to create a scoop, channelling water down to the tip and propelling you through the water. The bungee heel straps make it quick and easy to don and doff the fins and hold your fins on without needing to adjust them.
Who's the Pure For?
The Avanti Pure is made to be worn barefoot or with thin socks for warmer water diving where you don't want a heavy bulky pair of fins. Shorter and lighter than many other fins the Pure will travel easier and fit into a conventional backpack but give you enough thrust to go snorkelling and scuba diving.
If you particularly feel the cold or just prefer to cover your feet in the water then a thin pair of Fin Socks can help protect your feet.
If you're just starting out then a good Mask and Snorkel Set will make all the difference in exploring the underwater world.

Mares Avanti Pure Fins - Features
?Advances in design, materials and manufacturing techniques has allowed the development of various differenet types of fin blades which control the movement of water in different ways.
More advanced blades, including split and hinged blades, can dramatically increase efficiency, helping to improve propulsion but also lower the amount of energy required to operate the fins. Close.

?Fins are available in two fitting types, open heel and full foot pocket.
Open Heel are typically used for scuba diving as they are able to provide better propulsion due to their increased strength and weight.
Full Foot Pocket fins are usually worn by snorkellers who produce significantly less drag when moving through the water compared to a scuba diver. As a result the fins are generally smaller and much lighter. Close.
|Quick Release Buckle|
?Quick release buckles aid fitting and removal of the fins by allowing rapid fitting and release of the fin strap.
Rather than having to loosen the fin strap off before pulling it over your heel to remove the fin, the quick release buckle allows you to disconnect the strap and slide your foot straight out. Close.
?A number of different fin strap styles can now by found on fins including the traditional adjustable rubber strap, metal spring straps and also bungee straps.
Rubber straps can be easily adjusted to suit each individual diver and are typically fitted with quick release buckles.
Spring and bungee straps are generally not adjustable and are sized to suit the fin size, however, they offer an extra level of comfort and flex better during the kick motion. Close.
