C4 blade Umberto Pelizzari Medium
The new UP fins featuring technopolymer blades and 250 foot pockets are the result of the close collaboration between Umberto and C4. They were created by using the most recent plastic moulding technologies. Performance, which has always been a real obsession for Umberto, is at the basis of this project.
Advanced polymer blade
The best result is achievable only by combining a top quality footpocket with a highly performing blade. The new Umberto Pelizzari are designed with blades that put together all the elements needed: high quality materials, a futuristic design, advanced manufacturing and great mechanical resistance.
The design and material of the blade are key features to obtain both softness, high elastic return and strong resistance to breaking. C4 has selected and tested many different polymers, selecting two blends, one for the Soft version and one for the Medium stiffness blades. These two solutions guarantee extremely high performance and resistance.
The blade features a central smooth and glossy band which widens from the foot-pocket to the tip of the blade. On the sides, the surface feature a carbon fiber finish look. On the back side of the blade, the finish of the surface is exactly the opposite.
The tip of the blade is shaped as whale’s tail. The blade is 59 cm long at the center and 62.5 cm laterally. The measure takes into consideration the length from the tip of the foot-pocket to the end of the blade. The total maximum length of the blade is 79.5 cm, while the total maximum length of the fin, so including the foot-pocket, it is 91 cm.
Two long ribs are featured laterally on both surfaces of the blade, but they are 5 cm longer on the top side. On the back side of the blade there is an additional central nerve which runs almost all along the length of the blade. On the back surface, just before and after the tip of the foot-pocket, there are two 16 cm long ribs, 15 mm wide and 9 mm long, with an almost triangular section. The thickness in front of the foot-pocket is 3.4 mm, and goes down to 1.6 mm at the tip of the blade.
The angle of the blade is 29°, which added to the 3° angle of the C4 250 foot-pocket, brings the total angle to 32°.
A key element feature by the C4 Umberto Pelizzari fins is the fact that the water rails are over-moulded on the blades. The length (30.2* cm), the variable height (max 17.8* mm), the thickness (3.3* mm) and the material (thermo rubber) are another important feature of these blades. The result is a blade that works perfectly with no interference from the water rails and minimal lateral sliding of the fin.
Today the C4 Umberto Pelizzari fins are by far the lightest on the market of long polymer blade fins. They weigh less than 1200 grams a pair.
