Atomic Aquatics - X1 Bladefin
Rockets with Foot Pockets
Atomic X1 BladeFins deliver ultimate power and raw thrust. Firmer, shorter blades and a solid internal frame are attached to power plate foot pockets providing more control and better maneuverability in tight spaces. X1 Blade Fins are perfect for general diving, tech diving and alternate kicking styles like frog and scissor. Taller foot pockets are great for large boots.

|XLarge||11 1/2 – 13||44-46|
MAXIMIZE EVERY KICK. MAXIMIZE EVERY DOLLAR.
The X1 BladeFin kicks up traditional paddle fin design by applying our Monocoque structure and power plate with unique materials to achieve a solid internal frame for more control. Asymmetrical blade bend flexing provides more feel and maneuverability for tight spaces. All of this Atomic engineering goes into a great general purpose fin that fits into every budget
ATOMIC X1 BLADEFIN KICKING STYLES
The X1 BladeFin delivers optimal performance for general purpose diving, tech diving, extreme applications and alternate kicking styles. It has the backbone to control and maneuver in tight spaces, perfect for alternate kicking styles such as helicopter, scissors, backwards, flutter and frog-kicks. Improved performance for alternate kicking styles is a design attribute of asymmetrical blade bend flexing for more effective maneuverability without folding.
ATOMIC FIN PATENTED EXCLUSIVES
While divers will appreciate the thrust and control per-formance of the X1 BladeFin in the water, there’s even more to love before and after a dive. Our patented EZ-LOK Buckle System lets a diver easily snap the buckle on and off with confidence that it will not release accidental-ly. Buckles rotate 180 degrees and straps adjust with a simple pull (US Patent No. 6,463,640). Rust-resistant Stainless Steel patented Spring Heel straps are available for all Atomic Fins and as a universal retrofit for most other brands.
X1 BLADEFIN DESIGN
Power and thrust. Feel and control. General and alternate. The X1 BladeFin is a perfect fin for every diver and dive technique. The taller foot pocket with low-friction entry section is well-suited for large boots and drysuit boots.
- RIGID LOW-PROFILE SIDE RAILS & SHORTER, STIFFER BLADE
Makes turning and pivoting easier. Most fins have taller side rails for tracking and bending strength. The Atomic X1 BladeFin has lower profile rails with less side-to-side resistance that allow you to rotate, spin and turn more efficiently during alternate fin kicks.
- MONOCOQUE STRUCTURE & POWER PLATE
Unique structural engineering design is connected to the low-profile rails, efficiently transferring power from the leg and foot to the rails.
- ASYMMETRICAL BLADE BEND FLEXING
This design attribute is perfect for alternate kicking styles. Scissor kicks, frog-kicking and helicopter turning in tight circles put more emphasis on the up-kick or return stroke. For these kick styles, the X1 provides more feel and control of the fin to maneuver more effectively without folding under heavy load.
- VERTICAL STABILIZERS OR STRAKES
Adds stability and lowers drag to keep the fin tracking straight as an arrow. Other fin designs use taller side rails to keep the fin tracking straight. By using strakes to straighten the fin, the X1 BladeFin does not add significant side drag like tall side rails.
- EZ-LOK BUCKLE SYSTEM
An Atomic exclusive, our patented buckle system design features easy, one-handed quick release of the buckle from the fin. Re-attachment is simple and secure (U.S. Patent NO. 6,463,640).
- VARIABLE GEOMETRY SPRING HEEL STRAPS
Unique rust-resistant Stainless Steel springs are designed with variable pitch geometry for easy stretching, yet resistant to deformation if overstretched. A slight pull on the large finger grip stretches the spring to quickly and easily slide your fins on or off. Available for all Atomic Fins and a Universal retrofit for most other brands.
- WARRANTY & CARE
Atomic Aquatics fins are warranted against defects for a period of one year. Keep out of direct sunlight when possible to avoid color fading. Store your fins with the foot pocket inserts in place and in a manner that prevents deforming.
