Slipstream Fins -A Reason to Kick it Up

“Ocean Management Systems, better known as OMS, is pleased to announce that the ever popular Slipstream Fins are back!”

Looking for a lightweight, high performance fin? You’ll be pleased to know that Slipstream fins, the divers choice with Technical and Wreck divers, are now in stock and available for purchase.

You’ll enjoy this lightweight fin made with Monoprene resin – a thermoplastic elastomer. While it looks and performs like rubber; its lighter weight makes it a superior choice for many reasons.

Today’s divers are environmentally conscious and the 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 this 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 Slipstream fins are ideal. This is what is termed ‘keeping your fins in the water column’. Slipstream fins will improve your dive and overall dive performance.

Another huge advantage to the 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. Slipstreams are a smart option to help you.

OMS made the Slipstream Fins even better because they now come standard with 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 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.

Spring Heel Straps are also available for separate purchase. These can easily be fitted on most dive fins or you can purchase a different size if needed on your Slipstream fins.

Ready to purchase Slipstream Fins? These are available at an OMS Dealer or online.
