The Atomic open heel splitfins fin is very versatile because it provides high thrust with little effort. It is also extremely easy on your joints. Highly recommended for people who have had hip or knee surgery.

How To Swim With Atomic SplitFins
Don’t worry about how easy the SplitFins are to kick. There is nothing wrong, you’re probably already going just as fast as you did with your old fins. Although they work with a variety of kicking styles, you should adapt to a smaller range, more frequent flutter kick for maximum performance.
The smaller-range rapid flutter kick also keeps your legs within the slipstream of your body so that you punch a hole in the water that is only as big as your shoulders and your tank. Remember, less drag means more speed and less effort.
Spring Heel Straps – A Patented Atomic Exclusive
Another “rethinking” of something simple, the unique rust-resistant stainless steel springs were designed with variable pitch geometry. Divers get a more comfortable fit and easy one-hand removal, yet the springs are resistant to deformation if overstretched. Included on the “Smoke on the Water” Splitfin and available for all Atomic SplitFins or as a universal retrofit for other brands.
The Universal Spring Straps share the same features found on Atomic Springs, but are made to fit almost any other brand of open heel fins. Available in medium and long.
