When swimming long distances in open water, fatigue and injury are common, mainly due to poor equipment. Swimming with a monofin involves generating energy through the entire body and directing it to a flat plate at the end of the toes. While this concept allows for great speed underwater, all of that energy is pivoting about the ankles causing strain and sometimes injury. As a result, monofins cannot be worn for more than 15 minutes making their use in long-distance swimming impossible.
Kutta revolutionizes the way monofins are worn with a support system that extends to just below the knee. The shin covers can be put on before getting in the water and then attach to the ankle support piece to lock the feet into a safe and secure position. When getting out of the water, the whole fin detatches easily from the top of the calf
