DOL-Fin HP

The DOL-Fin HP (High-Performance) is equipped with a new ultra efficient hydrofoil fin based on the design of our DOL-Fin Orca freediving monofin. Compared to the DOL-Fin Classic, this new option offers faster swimming speeds, better hydrodynamic efficiency and a sleek new look.

For the same power input, the HP can deliver about 10% more speed than the Classic. This may be desirable if the diver will be using the DOL-Fin for freediving as well as SCUBA diving, or if the diver simply wants the best performance possible from their monofin. Although the HP's raked fin tips are not as sturdy as the Classic's, it's fin is quite durable compared to other composite monofins on the market, and unlike other monofins bearing the scars of use, damaged DOL-Fin parts are easily replaced.
