The main purpose of the device is to produce an explosive burst of energy large into enough acceleration in a very short distance to launch its user out of the water as dolphins can be seen so often doing alongside the yacht deck.
Featuring high thrust capabilities created via precise pivoting of carbon fibre hydrofoils about an aluminium and titanium foot deck, swimmers simply strap the plate on over a pair of cycling shoes which bolt on with titanium screws.
The result is the transformation of an average human swimmer into a powerful swimming machine that allows for unprecedented speed and efficiency underwater.
It took seven years of research and development to uncover the exact components necessary to recreate what is essentially nature’s most efficient underwater propulsion system.
For easy storage, the Lunocet can be folded small enough to fit in a briefcase-sized bag by simply removing one screw and is light enough to carry in a backpack.
The Lunocet currently carries a price tag of US$1,150 and is available in black with lunoblue, moray green, orange ruffian, red tide, or black sea wasp accents.
