DOL-Fin Pilot

Designed for freediving, spearfishing and scubadiving, the DOL-Fin Pilot provides excellent propulsive efficiency over a wide range of speeds and power inputs, making it a great recreational monofin for a diverse range of applications. The Pilot delivers consistent high-performance thrust with superior comfort and durability.

The Pilot's hydrofoil is supported on an exoskeletal frame that uses Shimano SPD shoes as the interface to the diver's feet, making this one of the most stable and comfortable monofins on the market.  Shoe sizes span Euro 36 to 48.  Sizes 36 to 39 use the WR-35 shoe which has a white top with grey trim and black soles.  Sizes 40 to 48 use the RT-32 shoe which has a black top with grey trim and black soles.  The shoes unbolt from the Pilot's exoskeletal frame allowing the the shoes to be easily replaced when needed. 

The Pilot has several adjustments that divers can use to get custom feel and performance from their monofin.  In addition to 3 standard hydrofoil sizes selected at the time of purchase based on biometrics of height and weight, the level of fin traction can be easily customized allowing the user to make their fin just as they want it to feel to compliment their level of ankle flexibility and core strength.  This is achieved through selecting the shoe placement on the frame to vary the extension length and angle of the fin relative to the shoes.  Additionally, the fin's angle control can be customized with a simple trimming of the fin's suspension guide lengths if desired, allowing total user control to customize their monofin.

A diver can find the setting that works best for them, and then update the setting as needed to keep their monofin in tune with their swimming capabilities as they become stronger and more flexible with training.  For people who have legs of different lengths, or other forms of biometric asymmetry, adjusting the shoe positions on the frame also provides an easy method of customized compensation. 

The DOL-Fin Pilot is a modular monofin with replaceable parts.  It makes traveling with a monofin easy. The Pilot can generally fit into a standard large suitcase by folding the fin tips, which requires no tools and takes only seconds.  If you need it more compact still, just remove 4 small screws and this sturdy monofin disassembles leaving plenty of luggage room to spare. The DOL-Fin Pilot monofin is ready to revolutionize your underwater experience.
