aquabionic abs sybrid boots connect to fin-blade modules in different performance parameters using ski-binding technology.
No more footpockets, no more heel-straps. Integral aquatic bindings guarantee 100% reliability.
The aquabionic abs system represents the most radical improvement of diving fins in 90 years.
Our aquatic hybrid shoes provide you with the comfort, look and performance of a high-end sports shoe and allow you to exit and enter the water with more ease than any current diving boot. Our aquatic shoes maintain the natural movement of your feet while walking on land and the natural flex of your feet when maneuvering through the water.
Customize your boots with your choice of a 2/3/4mm neoprene liner to best equip your thermal insulation needs for any dive condition.
Similar systems for sport footwear in skiing and biking have evolved over time and become more functional. Sadly, the concept of foot-pockets in diving fins has remained unchanged.
With the aquabionic abs system, fin technology has finally entered the 21st century.
abs aquatic hybrid shoes provide protection and safe stance while walking to the dive site and, at the same time, deliver outstanding performance during your dive.
This is made possible by a combination of specialized boot-sole integrated binding inlays and boot-uppers that distribute blade forces better and with less stress than conventional systems.
aquabionic takes a natural approach to its fin blade design, utilizing strategies found in marine mammals. Using our patented, award winning warp (water adapting responsive propulsion) technology, the fin blades adapt by actively optimizing the blade profile during each kick, which results in more efficient propulsion.
Y-frame identical blade designs allow the release of new and improved fin blades in short succession, simultaneously introducing new hydrodynamic findings faster than the competition. Every style of blade comes with different performance parameters allowing you to customize your dive.
The warp hybrid blades are perfect for entry-level fin-blades for all activities. They combine the ease and comfort of a typical paddle blade with the thurst of our patented warp technology.
Like to scuba dive? We have you covered with our warp blade module. The latest edition of our warp technology, first introduced with the original aquabionic1 fin, is now available as a blade module for the abs system.
The Carbon blade is a very responsive, powerful blade that bridges the gap from advanced snorkeling to freediving and spearfishing. It's made of carbon material and comes in at a very competitive price point.
The abs boots feature a water-draining, high-end, slip-resistant Polyurethane outsole and a durable air-mesh/anti-hydrolysis Polyurethane upper (for breathability and quick drying). Polyurethane overlays also provide additional support and structure.
For quick trying, the boots feature a soft Lycra lining. The boots also feature girth adjustment, and one-pull speed lacing system and adjustable elastic power-straps.
abs binding clips feature hands-free, step-in connection to fin blades on hard surfaces and one-hand, instant connection in the water.
Unintentional release is not possible. Once a blade module is attached, it is an integral element of the boot. Comparable to a cross-country ski-binding or an alpine ski-binding, abs is being developed in collaboration with leading manufacturers of ski- and sport-shoe equipment in Austria and Germany.
We are the first to apply binding technology to the tip of a diving boot.
Our revolutionary patented warp (water adapting responsive propulsion) technology anticipates a diver’s kick impulse and amplifies the strength and kick style of any diver by adapting the fin blade profile during use. This results in reduction of surface air consumed and overall more efficient propulsion
Not sure if it’s right for you? warp technology excels at all technical kick styles, making the aquabionic fins the most versatile for all levels of divers.
We decided to use Kickstarter as the platform of choice to introduce the World’s first aquatic boot-binding system for exchangeable diving fins to a wider audience outside of the scuba diving industry. We want this highly attractive and innovative product, that every diver and snorkeler uses, to be the medium to get more people interested in water sports and diving. We want to change the way diving fins will be used in the future.
We can’t thank you enough for checking out our project and helping us make aquabionic abs a reality.
We know not everyone will be able to support us with a pledge, so even if you can’t give a dollar or purchase a complete aquabionic abs, if you’re a supporter of aquabionic abs, you can help us spread the word on Twitter, Facebook, Reddit, Instagram and anywhere else you can think of!
Risks and challenges
This project is fueled by the passion and love of people who want to inspire more people, both young and old, to embrace and explore our aquatic environment. We are experts in diving and snorkeling and have developed and produced innovative aquatic products in the past. There are always certain risks that can arise at any moment during a project like this. That being said, we’re confident in our ability to produce, and have taken all the necessary measures. We have a highly qualified team of engineers and have partnered with leading manufacturing and fulfillment companies around the world. We just need your help to bring everything to fruition. Don’t worry, we’re completely prepared to bring aquabionic to aquatic worlds near you, and we have the manpower to make it happen, but if anything comes up along the way, you’ll be the first to know.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
