FINIS gains an Edge with launch of the ‘fastest and most…

first_imgFINIS, a world leader in technical swimming development, has announced the launch of the Edge fin, ‘the first 100% silicone speed fin to market that utilizes Smart Fin Technology.’With the goal of creating the world’s fastest and most comfortable swim fin that promotes a correct kick technique, the Edge fin is the result of over 15 months of designing, prototyping and testing. Born from a partnership with industrial designer David Beittel and long-time friend of FINIS, Dr Marty Hull, the Edge fin ‘eliminates drag and increases propulsion by redirecting water flow, allowing for swimmers to maximize their top speed.’Dr Marty Hull is widely known in the sport of swimming for his development of Smart Fin Technology, a proprietary combination of blade angle and hydrodynamic vents that facilitate a natural kick cycle with instant forward propulsion.“When we set out to design the Edge fins we wanted to create the most comfortable and fastest fins on the market,” said John Mix, Co-Founder and CEO of FINIS. “We worked hard to design a fin that is fast and promotes the swimmer’s natural kick cycle without compromising on comfort.”He continued, “The proprietary blade angle, in conjunction with the open heel and toe design, provides optimum comfort without compromising performance. The ergonomic contours on the Edge fin also help to maintain a constant connection with the top of the foot for a secure fit, making the fin feel like a natural extension of the foot.”“The Edge fins work both the up-kick and down-kick, helping develop an equal and strong kick initiated from the core,” said Tom Laxton, British Champion in the 100m butterfly. “They are the complete package – fast and comfortable.”The Edge fins are now available online with an RRP of US$54.99www.finisinc.com Relatedlast_img read more

Huge blow for West Ham as midfielder suffers ACL injury days…

first_imgThere’s some very bad news coming out of Argentina’s official Twitter account this morning for West Ham fans: Manuel Lanzini is out of the World Cup. Not only that, but it’s extremely likely the attacking midfielder will miss a chunk of the upcoming season, as he damaged the ACL in his right knee in training on Friday morning.What happens next for the Hammers star, who was a key member of David Moyes’ team towards the end of last season, has yet to be announced.The standard procedure in these cases would be surgery, and then around six months or so of rehabilitation, but it all depends on how serious the injury is.Embed from Getty ImagesHowever, the use of ‘rotura’ by the Argentina national team’s Twitter account in their tweet suggests it’s either a partial or complete tear.The 25-year-old, who has four caps for his country, made 29 appearances for West Ham last season, scoring five goals and picking nine assists along the way.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this Game is a Must-HaveForge of Empires – Free Online GameUndo聽多多 Hearmore.asia我們現正尋找希望使用市面上最新幾乎隱形的助聽器的香港試用者。限50歲以上*聽多多 Hearmore.asiaUndoTheTopFiveVPNNetflix Users In The Hong Kong, Use This To Enjoy US Netflix ShowsTheTopFiveVPNUndoDating.comWhere do attractive singles meet in Tung Chung?Dating.comUndoKeto减肥1個簡單的妙招一夜「融化」腹部贅肉(今晚試試)Keto减肥UndoSingles50Tung Chung: A 40+ Dating Site That Actually WorksSingles50UndoCoworking Space | Search AdsThe cost of shared office in Hong Kong might surprise youCoworking Space | Search AdsUndoHero WarsGetting this treasure is impossible!
