New Molchanovs Bifins C1x Shorties with Handbuilt Footpockets
Minimum Size. Maximum Power.
The most compact fins in the Molchanovs lineup, designed for propulsion & portability. Now with our new comfortable handbuilt open heel footpockets - the same as the CB2s - available in standard EU sizes or custom sizes.
For the frequent flying freediver, travelling with long fins can be cumbersome, and regular snorkeling 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. The C1 Shorties now come paired with our new, comfortable handbuilt open heel footpockets.
The curved shape of the footpockets and the built-in arch support keep your feet in the perfect position to maximize the use of the small muscles in the ankle and calf while minimizing drag. The arch support also decreases fatigue in your feet that is normally arising from flattening our feet. The new generation of handbuilt footpockets provides more comfort for your feet than ever before with the new Comfort Lining and with more toe space inside the footpockets.
