  • 4-channel design for more propulsion
  • Highly flexible material that optimises blade efficiency
  • Channel Thrust technology creates more thrust without increase in effort
  • Thermoplastic rubber foot pocket and "Tecralene" technopolymer blade

The Mares Avanti Quattro Plus fins build upon the popularity, reliability and strength of the traditional Quattro model with a new blend of high flex materials for increased efficiency. The Quattro Plus uses the same four channel blade design as the original to provide great thrust and efficiency but the Plus fins are made with new Mares Hi-Flex materials to give the blade the extra performance edge over the previous model along with a bungee strap for easy donning and removal.

The proven channel thrust system deforms the four rib channels during the fin stroke phases, allowing the blades to arch, thus increasing the size of the blade and consequently the thrust. The water is then channelled in the opposite direction of motion, minimising pressure loss at the side edges of the fin. The stabilising drifts also eliminate ankle torsion. The result is an ultra-high performance fin designed for the most demanding divers.

NOTICE: Dive Gear Express always ships unused new fins, but all fin materials have some characteristics that upon close inspection can make new fins appear aged or used. By design, all fin materials are soft regardless of brand, so handing during manufacturing and shipping through various points of the supply chain will inevitably cause the appearance of some minor cosmetic scuffs. Some fin materials, especially rubber, also contain a mold release agent that exhibits a gradual "blooming" of a haze on the surface of the fin as it dries following manufacturing, giving the appearance of oxidation and aging. If the cosmetics are bothersome then they can be improved by scrubbing the surface with ordinary soap, water and a cloth.

What Size Fins Do I Need?

Unlike shoes, the question is difficult to answer with fins because a 'shoe' size is only part of the answer. The brand and type of neoprene bootie you wear, particularly if you wear heavy soled or rock boots, will have as much effect on the selection of fin foot pocket as the shoe size. Some people, especially those with high arches, prefer a loose fit in their fin and others prefer a snug fit. Fitting drysuit boots in the very large sizes is especially problematic.

There is no size standardization between brands of fins (or even between different models from the same brand) and so you cannot assume that a size in one brand of fin is the same dimensions as the size in another brand; even when the designs look very similar. Taking some actual measurements of your boot while on your foot and comparing to our foot pocket dimension charts will help determine the size selection for your desired fit.

Determine your correct size before you order! If you are not certain about your fin size then our recommendation is not to order until you can obtain that information. While Dive Gear Express will accept fins for return, you will be responsible for return shipping costs. Return shipping costs on fins can be expensive (especially from an International location) because fins are a relatively low priced item that has a high 'dimensional weight'.
