The first monofin in the world with improved stability TARAS don't bend in transversal direction thus really improving efficiency.

More details

  • NO
  • YES



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.

    Good day. I want to buy a monofin Taras, but I have a question. I have different foot lengths - right foot 255 mm, left foot 245 mm. I tried a friend's monofin, footpocket size 39-40, but it is too small for me - it presses on my fingers. I tried footpocket size 41-42, they are excellent in width, but large in length (fingers are free), which is not very good for me. What can you recommend to me? I want to enjoy freediving so that the monofin does not press on my fingers and is not big. Answer:
    We can lenghten the 39-40 around 5-7 mm

    Salve. Sono indeciso se acquistare una taglia 43-45 oppure scegliere la versione custom. Senza calzini, i miei piedi misurano 265 mm in lunghezza e 105 mm in larghezza. Per le scarpe da ginnastica di solito porto 9 1/2 US, 9 UK, 43 1/3 FR oppure 275 JP (Adidas). Vivendo in Svezia di solito mi immergo in acque molto fredde, con calzari di 2mm oppure 3 mm; con la monopinna attuale soffro un po' e sono costretto a toglierla tra un tuffo e l'altro; la scelta è tra il soffrire il freddo oppure la monopinna stretta, diciamo che non mi dispiacerebbe poter utilizzare i calzari da 3 mm. In piscina oppure in acque calde non uso i calzari e non ho bisogno di rimuovere la monopinna, che comunque aderisce molto bene al piede. L'idea iniziale era di prendere la 43-45 sopratutto per poter ricevere la monopinna il prima possibile; tuttavia, vedendo la tabella delle taglie, mi sembra che i miei piedi siano un po' corti ma forse non è una cosa negativa considerando l'uso dei calzari. Voi quale alternativa scegliereste? Quali sono i tempi di consegna in questo periodo? Saluti, Dario Answer:
    Secondo me le sue considerazioni sono esatte io sceglierei la 43-45

    Salve, Mi chiamo Dario e vorrei acquistare una monopinna Taras. Sono indeciso se acquistare la monopinna misura 43-45 standard oppure scegliere l’opzione custom. I miei piedi misurano 265mm / 105mm: osservando la vostra tabella, la larghezza del piede sembra essere compatibile con la taglia 43-45, la lunghezza è tra la 41-42 e la 43-45. Vivendo in Svezia la maggior parte delle immersioni avvengono in acque molto fredde; con la monopinna attuale uso dei calzari da 1,5mm ma non mi dispiacerebbe riuscire ad utilizzare quelli da 3mm. In piscina o nel mediterraneo non uso calzari. Cosa mi consigliate? Quali sono i tempi di consegna? Saluti, Dario Answer:

    Salve, sono un atleta del Team 506 (la squadra di apnea agonistica di Bologna). Ho avuto modo di utilizzare una Taras che avete dato in prova al mio compagno di squadra Mauro Generali (atleta della nazionale indoor, nonché detentore del record italiano in dinamica con monopinna) e me ne sono innamorato. Quindi sarei intenzionato ad acquistarne una. La mia domanda è: la monopinna arriva con una sacca portapinna, o quest'ultima è venduta solo separatamente? Inoltre vorrei sapere se sia possibile effettuare la consegna presso un ufficio postale, poiché al momento sono in vacanza in Sardegna e non sono riuscito ad attivarmi prima per l'acquisto. Grazie in anticipo per l'attenzione e la disponibilità. Cordiali saluti, Lorenzo Siddi Answer:
    Buongiorno Lorenzo, La sacca va venduta separatamente. Credo non ci siano problemi a spedire presso qualsiasi indirizzo. Cordiali Saluti

    Hello. I would like to buy a monofin as a present for my friend. Would it be best if I buy her a credit note from you and she can then choose monofin of her choice or should I chose it by myself? If you suggest credit note, how high credit note would be enough for one monofin for a girl - size of her shoe is 38. Thank you. Best regards! Answer:
    Dear Lola, No problem if you need to do a present, we can do a credit note for you. the procedure can be that you buy a monofin directly by website and write in the comment box that this is a purchase for NAME and SURNAME and you requre an email. So we can send you an email reporting "this is a TARAS monofin ticket purchased for you by your name and surname"... hope this hepls Best Regards

    Hello! I am planning to order Taras monofin for CWT and DYN training. I am 187 height and 87 weight. What is the softness you recommend for me? Answer:
    Hello, we suggest stiffness number 3. Best Regards

    on 2021-10-20
    What stiffness is suitable for me, if I want to use it for both dynamic pool and cwt (I also regularly train Finswimming) I am 164cm tall female and weigh 64kg. Previously I had a molchanovs softness 1.5 and I felt it was a bit too soft for me....then I tried a softness 2...but again I felt it was still too soft Any suggestion what softness for Taras would suit? Answer:
    Hello, We suggest to choose stiffness number 2 (for freediving: CWT and DYN), if you look for unique monofin for both disciplines. Otherwise it could be 1.5 for CWT and 2 for DYN. Please take into account that our stiffness scale is different from other brand. If you need to use for finswimming we suggest stiffer for example stiffness 3... Hope this helps Best Regards

    If i order custom footpocket, is the "footpocket size" still important or you will pick the best one and make necessary adjustment ? How long can I expect wearing a "tight" or a "comfortable" fit ? any "normal" option ? Thank you Answer:
    Dear csutomer for custom footpocket option we adjsut the standard size in order to fit your size at best. Tight version is for competition, while comfortable you can wear at longer time. Best regards

    Hello! I would like to buy your monofin Taras and have three questions. (1)How does it happen that it doesn’t bend sideways? I see that Molchanovs monofin has vertical stabilizers that prevent it from bending sideways. But Cetma Taras doesn’t have them. (2) my foot size is usually between 45 and 46, while I see that your biggest is 43-45. Can you customize it to my foot? And (3) how come you don’t need to know the height of my foot? Does it not matter for an optimal fit? Answer:

    Hello, I am selecting Taras monofin. I am 185cm and 82kg, and will use it for DYN and CWT. Which stiffness would you recommend? I see in your answers below that you recommended harder for CWT to Thomas but softer for CWT to Peter. Is that a mistake or are there some other factors to consider? Also, approximately how long will I stay comfortable if I select foot pocket tight and how long if I select comfortable? Thank you! Answer:
