The DMC Elite 1 fins were designed as all round swim training fins for intermediate to advanced athletes. They have more recently become a favourite choice as bodyboard fins due to their small size and how comfortable they are. DMC Elite 1 fins have the same power as a stiff bladed fin due to the V Rail design which helps displace more water with both up and down kicks and are so soft and comfortable thanks to their silform construction compared to most standard swim fins which are made of rubber or other polymers.

The DMC Elite 1 Fins have been specifically designed to be moulded in silicone to avoid blistering as rubber is prone to.
The principal function of the DMC Elite 1 Fins is to enable anyone from a novice to an Olympic standard swimmer to achieve
an exact kick balance while using their preferred arm stroke. As well as strengthening and toning the muscles, using the
fins during swim training gives the legs neuro-musclular memory so that when the swimmer then swims without fins, they
kick more effectively. The DMC Elite 1 Fins have been specifically designed to be moulded in silicone, as opposed to rubber.
The benefits of using this material far outweigh the extra cost; the silicone does not cause blisters as rubber is prone to,
and the translucent and metallic colours are an attractive marketing advantage. In addition to this, silicone is denser than
water which helps keep the feet below the surface - essential when kicking correctly. The actual blend and hardness of the
silicone used has been the result of extensive collaboration with the manufacturer, the material is soft, yet resistant to tearing
and splitting, and is UV proof.
