Are shinfin™ fins very lightweight?

    Regular fins are heavy and cumbersome. They generally weigh about 600g (20oz) or more, per fin. I find this makes them less efficient to kick, and more stressful on my feet and ankles.

    I would prefer light fins that are easier to kick, so light that I hardly notice their weight.

    Are these fins lightweight?

    Yes, they are very lightweight indeed.

    They only weigh about 300g (10oz) per fin including strap (similar to a lightweight running shoe). Regular fins are about double this weight, some even heavier.

    They are lighter firstly because they don’t need a heavy foot pocket. Secondly, they are made from high-tech polyurethane which is very strong for less weight. Thirdly, they are thinner because they get strength from being strapped to your leg.

    This means they are flatter and easier to pack neatly too.

    Being so lightweight makes them feel far less cumbersome, less stressful to kick and overall more enjoyable to use.

    Cheers, Marc.
