One Fin, Any Ocean. Coming Soon. APRIL 2013

A Smarter Blade Design

The Accel’s pronounced side rails and center channel direct thrust behind the diver for maximum propulsion. Vents at the base of the blade improve water flow down the length of the blade for greater efficiency. With its excellent water flow characteristics, the Accel allows divers to swim efficiently with multiple kicking styles, from scissor to frog to sculling.

High-Stretch Heel Strap

Unique, high-stretch strap design dramatically reduces the bulk and drag of typical open heel fins, all while being effortless to slip on and off. The Accel’s foot pocket posts also accept standard quick-release buckle fin strap assemblies.

Any Foot. Any Surface.

Streamlined foot pocket design accommodates a wide range of boot styles. Underneath, the textured sole provides traction on boat decks and other slick surfaces.

A Full Spectrum of Possibilities.

The Accel line features a full line of available color kits. The highly durable blade material ensures the Accel will last long after it becomes divers’ favorite fin. Transform your fin to match your team or to impress a lover.

Details:

  • Angled blade ensures the best angle of attack for each kicking stroke.
  • Side rails and center channel direct thrust behind the diver for maximum propulsion.
  • Vents at the base of the blade improve water flow down the length of the blade for greater efficiency.
  • High-stretch heel strap is fully adjustable and easy to slip on and off.
  • Foot pocket posts also accept standard quick-release buckle fin strap assemblies.
  • Streamlined foot pocket design accommodates a wide range of boot styles.
  • Textured sole provides traction on boat decks and slick surfaces.
  • Compact blade is easy to pack and great for maneuvering in tight spaces.

Accel Fin | Reviews

The first thing I noticed was how when I picked up the fin I almost threw it through the roof of the boat—it was feather light. I was really curious how it would perform and to my amazement it performed as well as any comparable paddle blade fin and in many cases better. For energy expended the thrust delivered was outstanding and I did not seem to reach a point of diminishing return where you out-kick (cavitates) the fin. This fin could be a game changer.

I tried the Accel fin for the first time in the Bahamas on a boat dive. Although it is a smaller travel fin, it kicked with a lot more force than I had expected. I tried different types of kicks while I was using it, and was surprised at how well it worked for all styles (especially the frog kick). The unique strap made it easy to get on and off, but what I noticed the most about it was how comfortable it was. Hands down this was the best fin for that type of diving that I have ever used.

I recently had the opportunity to dive the new Accel Fin Aeris in Bimini. It was my understanding the fin was primarily designed as a travel fin because it is only 20” long and will fit in a standard carry-on bag. The performance of the fin absolutely blew me away. On one of the dive we had a current that was ripping along at about 2 knots. The fin worked flawlessly and gave me all the power I needed to move into the current. The foot pocket was comfortable enough to use a LavaCore sock but I could have used a boot if needed. The fin strap was unique as well; I’ve never seen anything like it and it worked great.

Having the chance to dive the ACCEL fin on a dive with a high current I was very impressed with the power for its size. I also found the fin to be very responsive to changes in my kick. Great fin for the size and price!

—Ray Bullion, AUP Regional Sales Manager, Southwest

“When I first saw the ACCEL fin, I thought, “nice travel fin”. However, once I got in the water with doubles, even in a current, the fin’s performance astounded me. Its thrust was equivalent to that of any cold water fin I’ve used and the small size makes the fin an asset to any diver in any condition. I would recommend this fin to any diver from beginning open water all the way to instructor.”

—David Saavedra, AUP Regional Sales Manager, Pacific Northwest

These fins are phenomenal. If anyone has ever said “love at first kick” was a myth, they haven’t tried the new Aeris ACCEL fins. I had the privilege of testing these fins out in Bimini and I was not disappointed in the least. They pack the power of a full size paddle fin, but can fit snuggly into your carry-on without taking up too much space. The thrust brought me to cruising speed within a couple of fin strokes and not once did I feel fatigued. Anything that looks this good with the performance to back it up is a slam dunk in my book.
