The three types of fins available for the MirageDrive offer the same kind of speed and resistance variation as the gears on a bicycle. The Standard Fins serve as a comfortable middle-gear for cruising pedalers in average-length Mirage models.
Ideal for users who need a bit more speed, yet don't want to increase overall draft beyond that of the Standard Fin. The ST Fin square-top design increases fin surface area while maintaining the 1-foot mast length.
Add even more speed to your MirageDrive with a ST Turbo Fin upgrade. The increased fin surface area and mast length provide added resistance and water displacement producing more thrust with each stroke.
The required depth varies a bit from model to model, but, on average, the water only needs to be about 18" (0.45m) deep when using standard fins. A shorter stroke can be used in stretches of shallower water. See the video above for an example of this technique.
Not much. We recommend a quick rinse with fresh water when you're done for the day and an occasional spray with silicone lubricant.
Yes. The Click and Go mounting system allows you to quickly remove the MirageDrive for cleaning or storage.
