Palau opens the way for a new type of snorkeling and swimming fin. In actual fact, it has been designed for two specific needs.
The first was to have a foot pocket that could easily adapt to at least three or four consecutive sizes so that the same fin could be used by all the members of a family, or by a group of friends, without requiring an infinite number of sizes.
The second need was that of guaranteeing extreme comfort and an easy fit even if this is a fin with a strap to be worn with bare feet.
The result is a fin that is extraordinarily practical, that adapts to practically any foot and that allows for very quick fitting in any situation.
The blade is made from a light yet responsive material that assures a kick that is fluid, effortless yet at the same time quite powerful.
The strap has a strong ring on the upper part to allow reversal of the strap itself or to fix the fins to the body or the equipment.
Cressi’s most technically advanced fin, the Reaction uses a completely new polypropylene blade material that is more reactive, flexible and trim than previous designs. It kicks easily yet powerfully and is suitable for divers of every experience level. The new, longer blade efficiently transfers energy from the computer-designed foot pocket, and like other Cressi fins, the blade extends from the top of the foot pocket to maximize its effective surface area for more thrust. Other innovations include new locking strap buckles and no-slip material for better traction out of the water.
NEW EBS STRAP
Cressi has developed this special strap to meet the needs of the most demanding divers, who need a comfortable fastening for their foot but one that is still practical and manageable. Its special amply sized slot makes it very easy to put on, even when wearing thick gloves or three-fingered gloves for winter water. The wrapping section is highly flexible, making adjustments unnecessary, and as a result it’s much easier to get all your equipment right in the first few meters of your descent and the fin stays in place against your foot despite the increase in hydrostatic pressure.
Closed-foot version of the Reaction fins, the buckle-up version has met with full approval from divers.
The frame is moulded in three different materials, according to the Cressi patented system that guarantees surprisingly smooth and powerful kicking.
The blade is rather long, and has a differentiated thickness – thicker at the front end of the foot, it gets progressively thinner towards the end of the blade.
The wide-soled foot is very comfortable and outstandingly enveloping thanks to the extensive use of elastomers.
The soles are completely covered in thermo-rubber to give them an excellent grip on boat decks.
These fins have been designed not just for swimming and free-diving, but also for scuba diving, where they will surprise you with their fantastic performance.
The first fin in the world made by combining three different materials, a process that Cressi perfected and patented with this fin, which guarantees unsurpassable performance.
The blade is made from a special, incredibly reactive polypropylene, which is at the same time extremely light, and progressively charges up during the stride to take off like a spring at the exact moment the stride is inverted.
A soft elastomer anatomically wraps around the foot, blocking it with a comfortable bite, which guarantees perfect transmission of the leg-fin thrust.
A suitably solid copolymer hardens some critical zones of the foot, and is extended along the sides in two lateral stringers, which go halfway along the blade.
The function of these stringers, assisted by special raised bands on the bottom of the blade, is to regulate and harmonise the bending, at the same time protecting it from shocks and abrasions.
The fins are extraordinarily light compared to equivalent models of rubber footed fins and reduces the inertial masses to the minimum, to the full advantage of the effort-efficiency ratio.
This fin is designed for deep skin-diving, although some Scuba professionals and instructors appreciate it a great deal.
Octopus Ellipse uses the same casing as the Ellipse model made from special hi-tech polymers, the only difference being the yellow front cover.
The hose is also yellow and is longer (100 cm against the standard 76 cm).
All the parts of Ellipse, most of which are patented, can be found on this regulator: the fold-out opening of the casing, the special folding diaphragm, the computer designed lever, the tilting movement of the piston, the seal between regulator valve and casing, the possibility of extracting the entire valve system from the body of the 2nd stage.
A flow of pilot air is channelled to the mouthpiece by injection, enhancing the performance. The upper part of the body has a flow deviator that acts on the Venturi effect, with dive/pre-dive function.
The performance is extremely high, although the calibration is regulated so that the inhalation effort is slightly greater than on the Ellipse, to prevent any self-regulating possibility when it is used as a spare regulator.
Octopus Ellipse suits all the Cressi first stages perfectly and all the first stages with an intermediate pressure between 9 and 10 bar.
Octopus XS Compact uses the same casing as the XS Compact model made from special hi-tech polymers, the only difference being the yellow front cover.
All the parts of XS Compact , most of which are patented, can be found on this regulator.
The performance is extremely high, although the calibration is regulated so that the inhalation effort is slightly greater than on the XS Compact , to prevent any self-regulating possibility when it is used as a spare regulator.
Octopus XS Compact suits all the Cressi first stages perfectly and all the first stages with an intermediate pressure between 9 and 10 bar.

2nd stage Ellipse Balanced
Many of the exclusive technical characteristics of Ellipse, covered by 4 international patents, have been transferred to this new second stage.
Ellipse Balanced has a slightly larger casing which is made from a sound absorbing material, and a new diaphragm that further improves the already very low inhalation effort of Ellipse.
The weight is very low (the lightest in the category).
The pneumatic balancing system of the piston allows for constant performance at any depth and with any air pressure in the tanks.
An easy grip knob allows for the instant adjustment of the inhalation effort, even when wearing gloves, thus regulating it as first regulator or as spare regulator depending on the preferences of the user and the required use.
The regulation system is protected by a double seal and is fully protected from contact with water, thus maintaining smooth rotation even over time.
A small lever, located in the upper part of the casing, acts as a flow deviator and allows the Venturi effect to be adjusted. When placed in position (-) it functions as pre-dive, for getting into the water and the first stages of the dive, whilst when moved to (+) it allows the regulator to develop its maximum performance.
An internal heat exchanger optimises the performance of the regulator even in cold waters.
The special study of air flows inside the casing has meant that absolutely natural, smooth and very silent breathing has been obtained.
The standard release baffle can be directly replaced by the user for a larger model which pushes the bubbles further way from the diver’s face.
The possibility of quickly removing the entire mechanical part from the casing significantly aids maintenance operations.
