The most compact fins in the Molchanovs lineup, designed for propulsion & portability.
For the frequent flying freediver, travelling with long fins can be cumbersome, and regular snorkelling short fins often fail to provide the familiar kick and propulsion we crave - so Alexey, frequent traveller himself, sought to make his life easier.
He designed the C1 Shorties to mimic the feel of our long fins, keeping the snug, custom footpockets for maximum power transfer from limb to blade. Widening the carbon blades compensates for loss in length, while keeping the feeling of thrust and power as close to our long blades as possible.
