The Avanti Superchannel OH is the latest evolution in Channel Thrust Technology, designed for the diver who wants the perfect blend of power and efficiency in one fin. Minimized leg fatigue!
Evolution of the superior Channel Thrust Technology is progressing unstoppably. As a result of countless laboratory tests in the mares fin testing machine, which is unique in the world, the designers pulled off another coup. Once again they managed to considerably increase the positive channeling of water. This physical effect is decisive for the efficient thrust of many mares fins. It is also the factor that made the scuba fin Plana Avanti Quattro the most successful and best-selling fin of the world. The channel thrust effect is a stroke of genius, but can easily be explained: the more water a finning stroke moves backwards, the higher the resulting thrust. If the flexible grooves form a channel in the blade, both during the upward and downward strokes, the displaced water no longer spills over the blade sides. All of it being moved backwards in one go, translates energy into effective thrust, without any losses.
In the Avanti Superchannel we improved the 3-channel-technology by a wide and flexible central groove. The result: efficiency, in form of thrust, is clearly increased, even with minimal effort. As a standard the Avanti Superchannel is fitted with the new buckle system ABS Plus, which makes opening and closing of the heel strap easy and effortless, even with neoprene gloves.

Soft longitudinal inserts allow a controlled deformation of the fin blade while kicking. This channel shape moves a greater amount of water resulting in more thrust for the same effort.
