DMC Swim Fins are uniquely designed to offer unparalleled comfort and durability in a swim training fin, and increase leg resistance while also encouraging proper kicking form. These are the perfect short blade training fin for indoor lap and workout swimming, as well as ocean swimming.
New Name; Same Award-Winning Design
Though the name and logo have changed, these are the same performance training swim fins formerly known as the Hydro Tech 2 Swim Fins. Designed in Australia, the DMC Tech 2 Swim fins won the Australian Design Award for their unique shape that makes them the ultimate choice for swim training.
Encourages Proper Technique
The DMC Tech 2 Swim Fins' meticulously perfected shape promotes proper alignment of the feet and body when kicking. And, because they are denser than water, these fins help keep the feet below the water surface, encouraging proper kicking technique once the fins are removed.
Using the DMC Tech 2 Fins during your swim training gives your legs neuro-muscular memory. This means they help promote proper kicking technique, giving the swimmer a more effective kick when swimming barefooted. You receive this benefit regardless of the armstroke you choose, and in addition to strengthening and toning your leg muscles.
The DMC Tech 2's short lever length results in a quicker kick, which creates increased resistance and adds greater cardio and strength elements to your workout.
Made from medical grade silicone, the DMC Tech 2 Swim Fins are super comfortable. The high quality silicone reduces the chance of abrasion that rubber swim fins notoriously cause. The edges of the foot cavity in the DMC fins are rounded to prevent chafing and provide additional comfort; these swim fins do not cause blisters.
The trick to the DMC Tech 2 Swim Fins is that the material keeps you comfortable and stays flexible while the shape promotes blade stiffness and aligns your kick. The angle of the blades on the DMC Tech 2 fin are designed relative to the foot in order to create the least possible resistance to the kick motion. “V” rails along the outer edges of the fins ensure the blades stiffness while also channeling water along the blade on both the upward and downward strokes.
Even though it offers maximum comfort and softness, the medical grade silicone material is also UV proof, and resistant to tearing and splitting – making these the ideal fin for ocean swimmers, surfers, and body-boarders alike.

The AquaGear Opinion
The DMC Tech 2 training fins run large; the safe bet is to order down a size. The design of this fin really does simulate a natural, organic kick. This is one fin that does not feel awkward once you get it in the water. When sized right, the heel strap stays firmly in place. The silicone of the swim fin is not too rigid, but firm enough to create resistance and propulsion.
The Bottom Line
There aren't a lot of fins out there with as much research and development put into them as the DMC Tech 2 Fins. These award winning fins build strength and refine technique, and they are available right here at AquaGear.com!
