Sometimes it's best not to mess with a tried-and-true original. The
XT Fin uses the original monoprene blend from the 1990's, and is the
best choice for divers looking for a high performance blade. Identical
in shape to our former fin, the XT brings us back to the original
monoprene blend that has been proven and successful for over 20 years.
XT's monoprene blend offers the best balance of power to work ratio,
providing efficient finning in high flow or stiff currents. The blade
shape is designed for a wide variety of kicks, including frog kicks,
modified flutter and power kicks. They are stiff, yet with plenty of
snap and are lighter in weight than traditional rubber fins, meaning
legs and feet won't cramp even after miles of swimming.
1/2-inch pliable marine grade stainless steel spring-heel strap allows
for quick donning/doffing. A comfort heel pad and convenient, removable
pull tab adds to the ease of use. A marine grade stainless
steel buckle secures the heel strap to the blade. The stainless steel
buckle is a Dive Rite exclusive, and is guaranteed not to crack or
