Cressi Gara 2000 HF Fins
Cressi Gara 2000 HF
The first fin in the world made by combining three different materials, a process that Cressi perfected and patented with this fin, guarantees unsurpassed performance.
This is a stiff fin.
The blade is made from a reactive polypropylene, which is at the same time extremely light, and progressively charges up during the stride to take off like a spring at the exact moment the stride is inverted.
A soft elastomer anatomically wraps around the foot, blocking it with a comfortable bite, which guarantees perfect transmission of the leg-fin thrust.
A suitably solid copolymer hardens some critical zones of the foot, and is extended along the sides in two lateral stringers, which go halfway along the blade.
The function of these stringers, assisted by special raised bands on the bottom of the blade, is to regulate and harmonise the bending, at the same time protecting it from shocks and abrasions.
The fins are extraordinarily light compared to equivalent models of rubber footed fins and reduces the inertial masses to the minimum, to the full advantage of the effort-efficiency ratio.
The blade is slightly shorter than a typical long free dive fin and is quite stiff.
This fin is designed for deep skin-diving.
It is also a popular scuba fin in warmer waters.
Double composition foot pocket:
• Flexible elastomer –thermo rubber – Shore 50º (grey color): it’s applied on areas that require flexibility and elasticity (on the foot pocket’s forefoot, the sole’s interior and the instep area that is in contact with the ankle) because that influences the diver’s comfort
• Compact elastomer Shore 90º (black color): it’s flexible but not elastic. It’s applied on areas that require a rubber composition, anti-slip but strong and of great resistance (on the longitudinal ribs, foot pocket’s sole and foot’s head strap)
Sizes: 40/41 - 42/43 - 44/45 - 46/47
