Short Blades

230.00

Special design 100% carbon fiber blades for increased speed and power requirements in a limited range of motion.
Their specially designed design (50cm long, 24cm wide width, 20th angle) combined with top epoxy resins and fabrics allows rapid changes in direction and acceleration as well as making them ideal for diving in shallow water and rocky environments.
The Short blades are used in underwater activities and sports such as underwater hockey, rugby, scuba diving.
Produced in 3 different hardness choices Soft/Medium/Hard

Soft for divers up to 75 Kg
Medium for divers 75-95 Kg
Hard for divers 95+ Kg

Of course, the above are suggested values, as the final choice of hardness depends on many factors, such as the free diver’s body, the technique of his foot, the use of the blade (long hours of swim, snorkeling etc.)

Description

Short blades are made of 100% Carbon with a weave combination (Twill 4X4, plain…) fabrics and top epoxy resins with advanced “UV” composition that confers yellowing resistance to conventional epoxy resins.
Laying the fabrics and placing them inside the blade plays a key role in its operation and performance.
The X-type layer positioning we have chosen to use gives us the advantage of graded hardness (as we climb to the tread the hardness and blade detonation increases to meet the proportionately increasing demands of the thimble) as well as lateral stiffness.

The combination of different weaving of fabrics gives us the advantage that our blade maintains its consistency and its exceptional characteristics (expansion, response, water displacement …) in each direction and direction of the user’s field.

Short blades are produced in 3 different choices
hardness.
Soft for free divers up to 75 kg
Medium for free divers 75-95 pounds
Hard for free divers 95 kg and up
Of course, the above are suggested values, as the final choice of hardness depends on many factors, such as the free diver’s body, the technique of his foot, the use of the blade (long hours of swim, snorkeling etc.)

Technical data

Handmade high performance blades made of carbon fiber and top epoxy resins.
They are manufactured by the resin casting process under vacuum
(VIP – Vacuum Infusion Process)
With this method we achieve a uniform impregnation of fabrics with the right amount of resin required.
A very basic advantage of this method is to eliminate entrapped air bubbles in the blade. This gives us more durability of the blade.
Captured air bubbles play a catalytic role in blade strength as they break the fabric’s consistency resulting in cracking or even breaking in extreme conditions.
Impregnation with the ideal amount of resin gives us the advantage of low blade weight but also the full utilization of carbon fiber properties (Resistance to Tensile, Elasticity, Fracture Exacerbation) resulting in Resistance Explosiveness, Durability and Reliability.
