With the Lunocet monofin, even the average swimmer can experience firsthand how it feels to fly through the water at superhuman speeds as Olympian Michael Phelps routinely does. The Lunocet fin has regular swimmers consistently hitting speeds of 8 miles per hour. In comparison, Michael Phelps swims about 5 miles per hour unaided.

The Lunocet is made of silicon, titanium and carbon fiber. Out of the water, it weighs about 2.5 pounds. In the water it is buoyant. The fin will give its user the same power on both the up and down strokes--a tremendous advantage.
