Cressi PRO STAR
Cressi PRO STAR

PRO STAR is a fin, derived from the Cressi’s apnea professional models, that introduces on the medium-length foot pocket fins’ market the usage of especially reactive materials of professional level. The result is a fin of muscular design with reduced dimensions, a surprising nerve and a great propulsive performance. It’s an excellent combination between resistance, power, comfort and aesthetics. Pro Star is the most powerful foot pocket fin of the Cressi range (except for the specific deep apnea models) and represents an optimal election for advanced snorkeling, amateur apnea, light diving without boot without sole and underwater hockey.

Materials:

  • Main propylene body: this material, inherited from apnea fins, has as main feature the extremely rapid energy transmission applied and its great structural rigidity. It is applied on the blade and on the internal sandwich sole area. It is really nervous and reactive and facilitates an effective and agile flutter. It has a relationship effort-efficiency clearly superior to traditional materials (natural or thermoplastic rubber, polyurethane, EVA). It also has a great resistance to breaks to the point that Cressi guarantees it lifelong to a sportive usage.

  • Flexible elastomer: it’s applied on the foot pocket and on areas that require flexibility and elasticity, because that influences the diver’s comfort (on the foot pocket’s forefoot, the sole’s interior and the instep area that is in contact with the anckle). It’s also applied on areas that require anti-slip capacity: on the sole (only the floor contact area) and on the blade sides. The fusion of both materials is produced at molecular level and its solidity is guaranteed lifelong to a sportive usage.

  • “Foot pocket-under-blade design”: The blade arises from the superior part of the foot pocket, linking solidly the fin to the foot and transmitting all the generated effort while flapping without energy loss through soft areas. This version allows channeling the water from the ankle to the blade’s end, which is different from traditional models, in which the foot pocket doesn’t help to improve. Besides improving the flapping direction, this design provides features between 10% and 15% higher than other similar models on the market.

Decreasing blade side thickness “spina di pesce” to improve the flapping direction and achieve a greater inertia from fin’s end. This concept, inherited from apnea fins, means that the blade has a decreasing thickness as it approaches the end. This way, the flutter’s curving recovery causes on the fin a spring effect when the blade recovers. Also, it makes the fins’ flexion to be more progressive, improving the flutter directionality.

The inside part of the foot pocket is extremely anatomic due to the fact that it has been designed with effort with computer using loads of measurements to configure the perfect anatomic volumes. It guarantees a perfect strength transmission of leg / foot / blade.

Colors: Yellow and Black

Cressi was the first manufacturer to use the thermoplastic rubber-blade foot pocket and also the first one to thermally fused in a single element three different materials to improve the effort transmission. The need to dispose of a removable version to install blades made of carbon or other different materials leads us to the new Gara Modular, which allows the Cressi experience with several materials composition and many features.

FOOT POCKET

The self-adjusting foot pocket is constructed with the most modern multi compound joining process to deliver a foot pocket that can offer comfort and suppleness around the foot where desired and yet have stiffer compounds under the foot pocket and heel area where power transfer takes place.

Gara Modular’s foot pocket is wider than the other Gara fin models. We suggest to use it with neoprene socks in order to have a proper fit.

For use without neoprene socks, we recommend buying one smaller size.

INSOLE

The new insole for Gara Modular fins is recommended for use with thin boots in temperate waters because it improves the kick performance.

The semi-rigid material of the insole is completely recycled.

The insoles are supplied as a pair (right and left foot) and can be cut into their shape in three different sizes, according to pre-printed guidelines.

All fin components are also supplied separately.

The original blade is made of high-modulus propylene (2500 Mpa).

This is the first fin that is made of three different materials merged in the same process (patented by Cressi). Each one is applied on distinct areas of the fin according to its requirements of flexibility, hardness, reaction or resistance. Thus, the required ideal and dynamic feature can be allocated on each area without the need of increasing thickness, obtaining great lightness and inertia saving.

Materials

  • Flexible elastomer –thermo rubber – Shore 50º (grey color): it’s applied on areas that require flexibility and elasticity (on the foot pocket’s forefoot, the sole’s interior and the instep area that is in contact with the anckle) because that influences the diver’s comfort

  • Compact elastomer Shore 90º (black color): it’s flexible but not elastic. It’s applied on areas that require a rubber composition, anti-slip but strong and of great resistance (on the longitudinal ribs, foot pocket’s sole and foot’s head strap). This material links the energy transmission critical point (the instep) with the nerves in a single piece, avoiding the usual energy loss through extremely flexible components of the foot pocket that produce a heavy and slow flutter that fatigues the instep.

  • High-modulus propylene: this material, inherited from apnea fins, has as main feature the extremely rapid energy transmission applied and its great structural rigidity. It is applied on the blade and on the internal sandwich sole area. It is really nervous and reactive and facilitates an effective and agile flutter. It has a relationship effort-efficiency clearly superior to traditional materials. It also has a great resistance to breaks to the point that Cressi guarantees it lifelong to a sportive usage.

This is a fin born from apnea that is very appreciated by guides and diving instructors who work in areas with water flows.

Cressi GARA MODULAR NERY

CRESSI introduces its GARA MODULAR long Blade/Foot pocket system.
The GARA MODULAR system makes this a perfect choice for deep free diving and spearfishing for divers of all levels.

The modular design lets the user replace/interchange blades for specific diving purposes, which make the perfect fin to grow with, as the diver can change blades as the divers skills increase.

Any standard Fiber glass or Carbon Fiber long blade will interchange in minutes without any modifications to either. The self adjusting foot pocket is constructed with the most modern multi compound joining process to deliver a foot pocket that can offer comfort and suppleness around the foot where desired and yet have stiffer compounds under the foot pocket and heel area where power transfer takes place.

The angle of the blade provides the ultimate in efficiency during the kick cycle requiring less energy to load the blade.

Can be comfortably worn with or without neoprene socks.

The foot pocket is available separately for the user to install any standard aftermarket angled or straight blade assemblies.

The foot pocket is constructed with the most modern multi compound joining process to deliver a foot pocket that can offer comfort and suppleness around the foot where desired and yet have stiffer compounds under the foot pocket and heel area where power transfer takes place, and the self adjusting foot pocket expands to be comfortable with or without socks.

The Cressi modular blade is available separately for the user to install in almost any standard angled foot pocket assembly either for an upgrade or replacement.
