EBS SYSTEM, combines new belts of essential and hydrodynamic design, adjustable to all Cressi models, with a new auto adjustable strap made in pure latex of high elasticity. The latex is the most elastic material of nature and has the property of extending to 8 times its length without breaking and with total elastic memory, which means, recovering its initial length.
Applied to the fins’ strap gives us great advantages:
It allows a relationship insertion comfort vs. fin’s fixation higher than spring systems, because of its high elastic coefficient (X8 vs. X1.5 of the spring).
It eliminates the messy need of adjustment that traditional buckles have, a process that not always guarantees a perfect heel fixing, especially with non-experienced divers or stress situations during the equipping process.
It allows, maintaining the flapping comfort, a high pressure level over the heel which is essential to obtain a right energy transmission applied to the fin without energy loss because of the “spring effect”. This is certainly its most significant feature because a strap excessively soft, long or without elastic memory reduces drastically the fin’s efficiency.
It assimilates the neoprene pressing of the foot pocket when descending and compressing the neoprene without fixation losses.
It’s easily replaceable and essential both conceptually and in its production and assembly.
The natural latex used is of maximum quality without burdens that may change its features and guarantees a high resistance to use, salt water and sun exposure.
It’s adaptable to all Cressi models, both with traditional hook (Frog, Master Frog, Prolight) and rotating bayonet (Thor, ARA, Reaction, Frog Plus).
