The APEKS RK3 HD ORANGE fins are the latest model in the APEKS RK3 range. Based on one of the first vented rubber fins sold in North America and popular with the military and professional divers. It is made with a higher density (HD) than the standard Apeks RK3, making the fin stiffer and negatively buoyant, ideal for wetsuit diving. The APEKS RK3 HD ORANGE is a rugged thermoplastic rubber fin with an oversized foot pocket, to tuck dry suit boots in, and an elastic strap for easy on and off.
Compact and ultra-resistant for use in harsh environments. Improved foot pocket with spring straps for ease of use with cold hands or thick gloves. The ventilated blade design reduces resistance on the upstroke and improves thrust on the downstroke. Vents also eliminate eddies that can occur along the back of the blade, just like split blade fins do. The material of the APEKS RK3 HD ORANGE racket is designed to resist in the harshest environments and temperatures, and in the most demanding conditions.
