Monofin TARAS by CETMA COMPOSITES

The monofin is specifically designed for freediving or finswimming.The blade is a “technology jewel” produced with the most advanced processes using high moduls and high strength carbon fiber, resulting from aerospace sector. Blade stiffness distribution is accurately designed by FEM in both, tranversal and longitudinal, directions, to minimize the transversal bending thus avoiding lateral pressure drops.

This engineerized stiffness distribution enable the transversal shape stability, also in strong kicking, thus producing a great thrust with minimal muscular effort (high efficiency).
The footpocket is ergonomical and comfortable. It is molded with high quality rubber and can be worn tight yet maintaining a comfortable fit, minimizes power consumption and produces maximal thrust.
All monofin subcomponents, blade, footpockets, vertical and horizontal stabilizers, are assembled by qualified technicians.
Features list:
1. Foot/blade inclination: high angle.
2. The underplanter, made differential stiffness rubber and rubber foam, has an arched and ergonomic shape to make a powerfull and comfortable fit;
3. The monofin has a buoyancy positive thrust of about 200 grams (2 N);
4. The blade is 100% carbon fiber both IM7 and High Modulus;
5. The material used is 100 % Carbon Prepreg produced with hot melt impregnation system, using a micro-toughened tetra-functional epoxy resin.
6. 3D-Tech: Proprietary Technology, of CETMA COMPOSITES exclusive know-how, with high pressure, high temperature and high degree of applied vacuum, which lead to a component with 0% void level, without defects, with a uniform matrix/reinforcement ratio across the whole blade.
7. FEM Design: TARAS blades are optimized trough an accurate Design by means of Finite Element Softwares (FEM). The Design trough FEM software allows an optimized distribution of the stiffness, with the aim to obtain a deformation ensuring the maximum hydrodynamic efficiency;
8. Dimensions: L (Length) = 70 cm; W (width) = 70cm; H (height) = 10 cm.
9. Weight: 2.13 kg.

    Buongiorno, sarei interessato all'acquisto di questa MONO ma mi piacerebbe provarla. Come è possibile e dove fare delle prove? Grazie, Angelo Answer:
    Buongiorno, abbiamo un nostro atleta che può fargliela provare presso y-40. Anche i Puglia presso diverse piscine potremmo organizzare una prova con atleti che già la posseggono. Le consiglio invece di contattarci per capire quali sono le sue esigenze. Cordiali Saluti

    Would the Taras monofin be suited to, and effective in sprint racing for finswimming with distances of between 50m and 200m? Answer:
    Hi for this need fater you purchase a monofin, you should send a message writing you need a monofin for finswimming. For this purpose we ship monofin stiffness 4 or 5, depending on your weight. Best regards

    Hi ! I am not sure what stifness to use. There are 6 levels. I like a soft fin in deepdiving but a medium in pooldiving. What is the appropriate stiffness to use for me ? Answer:
    Lot of athletes with similar needs of yours are choosing number 2. I'm sure it right choose for you. Best Regards

    How to determine the size of the footpockets? Answer:
    the first approach is the size of your shoes, for example if you have shoes size 43, we suggest footpocket 43-44. Another check is the size table we have on our web site here: https://freediving.cetmacomposites.it/en/home/13-footpockets-cetma-composites-s-wing.html

    Hi I have a (Molchanov fin stiffness nr 2 soft) and also a (Freediving glide Fin Stifness 1 very soft ). When I compare these two fins the Molchanovs are a lot softer than the Glide Fin. So for me I use the soft molchanov in CWT and in pool DYN I use the GlideFin. If I use the glide for CWT my legs get lactic and if I use the Molchanov in DYN its too soft and I don't get anywhere. Now I want to combine and find a perfect stiffness with Cetma TARAS that will work both in CWT and DYN. What stiffness do you recommend for me (173cm and 75kg). It should be somewhere between the Glide stiffness 1 and Molchnov Stiffness nr 2. Im thinking Stifness NR 2 for Taras ??? Also can you make custom made foot pockets for the Taras ?? My foot is 39 EU size Answer:
    Hi, For your weight and height with TARAS stiffness nr 2 you'll be effective for both disciplines CWT and DYN. Our fin is not comparable with those you're mention because both of them are affected by transversal bending and this reduce dramatically the efficiency expecially in softer blades...our blades, instead, have an engineering stiffeness distribution designe also with the purpose to avoid transversal bending also for softer blades, like nr1 or nr2. So please go straight with nr 2 with confidence. About footpockets we have a size 39 wich is perfect for your size, moreover our footpocket is a natural rubber monoblock this means that it is a unique piece with no glued joint like craftmanship made footpocket this also dramatically increase the efficiency because it became like a "glove" at your feet and the movement become more natural and fluid. Lot of athletes are converting to TARAS because it is a big step forward compared the old school monofin...including also AlenKa Artnik who just did a world record using TARAS mono, as she used for the first time suddenly increase her PB. Hope this help ;-)
