The name and logo may have changed, but the DMC Tech 2 fin, formerly known as the Hydro Tech 2 Swim Fin, provides the same performance training as its predecessor.
The principle function of these swim fins is to enable anyone from a novice to an Olympian to achieve an exact kick balance while using their preferred arm stroke. Using fins during training not only strenghthens and tones muscles but also gives the legs nueormuscular memory so that when the swimmer swims without fins, they kick more effectively.
The shape of the foot pocket has been the subject of considerable research. Along with the dedicated left and right foot fins, the fins provide exceptional comfort and greatly reduce the incidence of cramps.
The hell strap has ankle cut outs to prevent chafing and all of the edges of the foot cavity are rounded for the same reason
The underside of the foot area has a non-slip tread pattern which makes walking around the pool less hazardous as well as flipturns and diving safer as well.
The angle of the blade surface relative to the foot is different when compared with conventional fins and has been designed to create the least possible resistance to the kick action
The asymetrical shape of the blade allows the fins to be reasonably short and wide without the potential nuisance of the fins bumping together while swimming.
