DiveR, Australian producer of a top line freediving fins has released fins reinforced by TeXtreme® Technology. The new fin transfers the load progressively from the heel to the toe while remaining soft yet responsive, that gives the diver a new unique feeling.
“We were looking for a new flagship fin that generated the most power with the least amount of effort. We partnered up with TeXtreme® engineers to find the right solution both in carbon fiber and resin system to achieve our goals, and now we’re excited to present our TeXtreme® Innegra™ fin that’s an ultra-light fin that can deform far more than previous carbon/aramid fins without failing.” says Ray Powell, founder of DiveR Australia
TeXtreme® technology it is based on using Spread Tows instead of traditional round tows to create ultra-light weight, high-performance products. Companies utilizing the TeXtreme® Technology achieve significant results in minimizing weight while increasing rigidity, strength, etc., in comparison to other carbon fiber materials.
“Ray continues “We’re given outstanding results when using TeXtreme® Technology in our fins and are continuing to work closely with the TeXtreme® team in developing materials that add both toughness and mechanical advantage to the end product”.
By using TeXtreme® Innegra™ hybrid fabric, DiveR was able to maximize the weight savings with the thin ply advantages of TeXtreme® Technology and combine it with the hydrophobic and ductile properties of Innegra™ to achieve the most advanced fin ever produced.
TeXtreme® technology is able to maximize the benefits of thin ply principles where research studies have shown the maximum strength until breakage is more than twice as high when comparing with conventional carbon fiber fabrics.
TeXtreme® can be found in Formula 1, America’s Cup, NASCAR and Le Mans racing, bicycles, golf clubs, surfboards, tennis racquets, table tennis blades, rowing shells, skis, snowboards and ice hockey sticks as well as various industrial and advanced aerospace applications.
About DiveR Australia
Owner and manufacturer of DiveR fins Ray Powell started to produce freediving fins in the year 2000. Quote RAY ” my dream was to produce the best fin on the planet in both performance and aesthetics.” This is still the driving force behind DiveR today. Now revered as the bench mark for freediving fins the world over DiveR is continuing to pursue excellence in the field of composite fabrication.
With the world of underwater sports and freediving rapidly growing around the world DiveR is now the choice of compedative and recreational divers around the globe. The fusion of outstanding original artistic design with cutting edge composite fabrication make the choice simple when you want a set of fins. DiveRs not only look fantastic they have changed the way people are diving. Giving the user added confidence and performance both makes each dive safer and more enjoyable. www.diveraustralia.com
TeXtreme®, the market leader in advanced carbon reinforcement technology, is the ultimate choice for making advanced ultra-light composites products with superior mechanical performance and surface smoothness.
TeXtreme® Technology is flexible and tow-size independent which enables the development of optimized reinforcement solutions which are tailor-made for specific needs of the application. Manufacturers of advanced aero, industrial and sports products have consistently found that using TeXtreme® Spread Tow carbon fabrics and UD tapes have enabled them to produce composite parts which are 20-30% lighter with improved mechanical properties and superior surface smoothness.
