Burner EBP Fin
Burner EBP Fin
The Burner EBP (Elevated Body Position) Fin is a floating short blade fin that mimics race-day cadence while building lean muscle.
|country of origin:||Taiwan|
- constructed of ultra-soft high buoyancy rubber the fin helps maintain proper elevated body position while training
- proper body position during training allows for raceday muscle development and helps simulate race pace conditions
- short blade for training at race cadence
- shorter cadence kicks help build fast twitch muscle fibers throughout the leg
- shorter fin-bade provides just the right amount of propulsion to hone in on the perfect stroke
- ergonomic foot pocket allows for decreased levels of tendon strain with efficient strength building for the ankle
- no-slip Wall Gripper Footpad - keeps the foot anchored during flip turns and push-offs
- each size is a unique color (see below)
- sizes on bottom of fin indicate the men's shoe sizes
Each size has a unique color
|Women's Shoe Size||4.5-6.5||6.5-8.5||8.5-10.5||10.5-12.5||12.5-14.5|
|Men's Shoe Size||3-5||5-7||7-9||9-11||11-13|

Will they fit?
I wear a 10 shoe and used the sizing chart tab to order a med yellow, 9-11. After I made the order I noticed that the tab size chart and the page charts didn't match. I was worried about the fins not fitting me. They are a bit snug but do not cause any foot fatigue. If in doubt go up in size. They make laps fun and yes they do position the body nicely.
- Ergonomic Design
- Sizing: Feels too small
A Worthy Purchase
've used these twice. Today, I had them on for the final 600 yards of a two mile swim.
In short, I really like them a lot. Made of soft rubber, they are very, very comfortable. The blade is a bit longer than that of Zoomers. Since they are so buoyant, they live up to their claim of keeping your lower body aligned higher in the water, so I was really able to focus on both my stroke and body rotation. I was surprised at how easy it was to zone in on the rotation, which is something I have to work on due to physical alignment issues (slight case of scoliosis). Anyway, I was pretty tired by that point in the swim, so I kicked very gently.
I like them much better than Zoomers, which seem to work the legs more. Differences: Zoomers are made of an unforgiving, harder rubber. For that reason, Zoomers can be a bit uncomfortable on top of the foot, particularly by the toes. The EBPs are soft, like I mentioned, and I could pretty much ignore them.
Zoomers have a degree of buoyancy but the EPBs felt more buoyant to me (YMMV). Also, with Zoomers, I felt like I was having to work harder to kick. With Zoomers, it's easy to get too much zoom. Felt more in control with the EBPs but I definitely was going faster due to my legs being higher in the water. As terms of work intensity, the EBPs can go either way---they work great w/a gentle kick or you could challenge your legs/focus on your kick with them.
I think both Zoomers and EBPs have their place. Because I'm an endurance swimmer, I'll probably reach more for the latter, particularly when my legs need a break. They also are better at feeling a more balanced core rotation, which I will replicate when swimming w/out them.
- Well Constructed
- Great Value
- This was a gift
