In a seemingly perfect combination of science and nature, the Aqua Sphere Zip Fins’ design takes its inspiration from marine life and fuses it with the undeniable power of forward propulsion physics. Producing a solid and stable kick like never before, the split-bladed Zip Fins are the ideal training tool for anyone who spends quality time in the water.
Inspired by Nature
While you might not be able to replace your lungs with gills, these high-tech swim training fins by Aqua Sphere give you the next best thing. Inspired by the tail of a fish, the new, patented split blade technology produces a highly efficient kick. It utilizes the bi-wing surface to create lift and forward propulsion. Much like the properties of a propeller, these fins create a powerful drive with minimal effort. And while this design is already cutting-edge, Aqua Sphere promises to put continuing research and design into the “Nature’s Wing” technology year after year.
Comfortable And Effective
The split blade design actually does more than just enhance the kicking quality of the fin. Because of the slit in the surface, the fin provides efficient water flow and helps eliminate ankle fatigue that’s common with longer water workouts. This means that the fins can be worn during distance training, such as those that open water swimmers rely on. In addition to reduced ankle strain, the Aqua Sphere Zip Fin comes with a soft foot pocket and open heel design, complete with comfy neoprene ankle strap. Aqua Sphere also offers Zip Fin Replacement Straps available to ensure that your fins stay useable and comfortable for as long as you need them to.
Easy To Use
As if the effortless forward propulsion and comfortable feel weren’t enough, these training fins also come equipped with an easily adjusted buckle-on strap with heel tab. This simple addition makes the fins slide easily on and off, no matter if you’re in or out of the water. Similar to the Tusa RF14 Reef Tourer Fins, the Aqua Sphere Zip Fins are compact, lightweight and designed to provide both a comfortable and secure fit. The pair is so versatile that there’s no reason they can’t be used in any and all water training. Throw a pair in your Speedo Mesh Equipment bag and see how far these effective fins can take you.

The AquaGear Opinion
It wasn’t just the excellent accelerative power that impressed users in the AquaGear test pool. The fins also received high marks because of their comfort level. The straps remained soft on the foot and the easy on and off heel tab design was a big hit. Users noted that the split fin produced a stabilized kick that required less effort for a more powerful and propelling kick.
The Bottom Line
No matter if you’re a lap swimmer, hardcore triathlete, recreational snorkeler or deepwater scuba diver, the meticulously designed Aqua Sphere Zip fins will keep you in shape for any and all of your underwater activities.
