Carbon fiber fins/blades are produced upon ordering. We do not keep them in stock. Lead time (waiting) may vary from 5 to 25 working days, depending on our work load and your special requests. Normal lead time is 10 working days (2 weeks). Please be sure to contact us in order to know the waiting time before you place your order. We are always doing our best in order to keep you waiting the least possible time.
alchemy V3 offer the ultimate carbon layer positioning inside each blade. Fifteen (15) layers of pure 100% carbon fiber positioned in the best possible way to offer the most efficient bending profile, yet the ultimate feedback nerve and speed! Having the first ever V shaped reinforcement layer that goes beyond the blade's angle we make sure power and feedback come straight from the beginning of each kick!
alchemy V3 blades offer a new pat. pending design called hardtip. Built in reverse order, we managed to get the blade's tip harder. This all new feature makes the most out of your blade's efficiency as it corrects the total bending profile ensuring zero dead spots during immersion from deep dives. While not taking part in the blade's total stiffness level, comes into action when fins start oscillating continuously during diver's vertical movement, ensuring continuous power transition without dead spots.
Having the first worldwide innovative design of colored silicone water-rails, we decided to offer more! V3 blades come into lots of color variations including metallics and fluorescent options as well! In other words, we offer all it takes for you to be in love with your equipment!
GENERAL FEATURES / IMPROVEMENTS
Our V3 model comes with all past features as standards and it goes even better! We kept the extraordinary mirror finish on the blades' front side and matte finish on the back. There are also five (5) years of written warranty from the day of manufacturing on the carbon part of your V3 blades ensuring the best working way as the day you first ever tried them! Serial number tag is now embedded into the blade's lamination ensuring the authenticity of your genuine alchemy product along with a hologram tamper-proof individually numbered tag on your warranty certificate document!
alchemy V3 Carbon Fiber Blades offer a new revolutionary design with more Carbon Fiber layers for ultimate energy transferring and top performance! alchemy V3 Carbon Fiber Blades are manufactured in compliance with the most demanding and modern standards in constant ambient temperature and humidity. 45 tons of total pressure combined with vacuum assistance (VRTM) and 12 hours post curing in temperatures controlled through PLC (Programmable Logic Controller) with a deviation of less than ± 0,1°C.
BLADE ENDING SHAPE
alchemy V3 Carbon Fiber blades are manufactured ending in a dolphin tail shape (D.Tail). This shape gives the best results based on hydrodynamics studies (Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute / T. Wei) and tests made in C.F.D. software (Computational Fluid Dynamics). The dolphin tail shaped ending gives the maximum thrust with the least possible energy consumption!
In each alchemy V3 Carbon Fiber blade, there are specially designed water rails made of 100% silicone in white, blue, red, black, gold, silver or fluorescent colors. The design was made in a three-dimensional (3D) CAD environment and produced in United Kingdom by a modern silicone production facility. Trials and studies in C.F.D. software showed that this water rail detains and drives the water on the blade without losing its shape even in the toughest conditions. The fact that even in the limit bend of the blade, the water rail retains its shape, drives the water from the beginning of the stroke and provides immediate response to the diver's moves. Alchemy water rails offer hydrodynamic design and the absolute superiority of silicone to common rubber on strength, original shape maintenance and strength under extreme conditions!
