Atomic Aquatics Scuba Diving Mask Split Fins Semi Dry Snorkel Set Blue
Set includes Atomic Splitfins, Subframe Mask, SV2 Snorkel and mesh bag. The strength comes from the internal frame (subframe) molded directly beneath the surface of the silicone rubber skirt (patent pending). This subframe provides incredible strength and rigidity as well as eliminating the bulky external plastic frame in other masks. A stainless steel retainer locks the lenses in place and provides added strength to the nose bridge area of the mask. A wide field of view and great fit completes the combination of function, style and durability. Unmatched durability and resistance to breakage. Optical quality, distortion-free UltraClear lenses.
Hydrodynamic styling with no exposed external frame. Removable lenses for corrective lens options. Wide vision and low volume. All Atomic masks offer a new standard feature never seen or seen through before in a diving mask. Did you ever notice that normal dive mask lenses have a green tint to the glass?To see this tint, put your existing mask up to a piece of white paper and see for yourself. The green tint you see is the result of iron impurities left over in lower quality float or window type glass. That green tint distorts true colors and blocks out some of the light that reaches the eye. UltraClear is an exciting optical quality glass with exceptional clarity, high light transmission, and no color distortion. The exceptionally high light transmittance and lack of distortion in the UltraClear lens maximizes the light available for improved visual acuity, especially underwater in low light conditions. Why SplitFins deliver more propulsion with less air consumption. All it took was watching the tail fins of fish except that divers couldn't keep up with them because traditional fins took too much effort.
Using hard kicking paddle fins can result in leg strain, fatigue and cramping. Because of the kick resistance of a paddle fin, divers often felt like they were moving fast. But underwater speedometers proved that these divers were actually moving relatively slow. SplitFins deliver more propulsion with less drag and kick with less effort. Reducing the stress and strain of the kick results in greater sustained speed, power and comfort.
These contribute greatly to overall comfort and performance. A fin with short, soft blades will kick easier than a longer, stiffer one, but will require many more kicks to travel the same distance. A blade that is too stiff will require too much effort to kick comfortably. Atomic SplitFins were specifically designed to optimize all these variables.
They are easy kicking fins that deliver high thrust, speed, and efficiency with a comfortable, low frequency. Traditional paddle fins work by pushing water rearward. As a paddle fin is pushed through the water, much of the water spills over the top surface of the blade and sticks to it, creating drag. Extra kicking effort is required to overcome that drag. The Atomic SplitFin slices through the water with two wing-shaped surfaces, creating lift and forward propulsion more like a propeller.Any water traveling over the top of the blade is funneled into and out of the opening (split) between the wings. Drag is reduced, effort is reduced, and efficiency is increased. Propeller-Fin Technology Moves You Faster. Atomic Aquatics SplitFins use Propeller-Fin Technology to deliver ultra-high speeds with a small-range rapid flutter kick. This works in the same manner that increasing the RPM on a boat propeller accelerates a boat to high speeds. Multi-Composite Plastics And Other Uniquely Atomic Features. The Atomic signature is the use of exotic materials specifically designed to improve performance. Atomic developed multi-composite plastics for the SplitFins to maximize the efficiency of the kick with less fatigue. Flexible side rails and a stiff foot pocket are combined with stiff battens in the blade to control the flex pattern for optimum performance. A patented EZ-LOK Buckle System is a distinct Atomic feature that makes divers love them even more. Add dive boots and you are ready to go! It was finally time to reinvent the snorkel. Atomic Aquatics only designs and releases new products that redefine a category and solve a diver's need. Did something as simple as the snorkel really require new thinking? More and more divers were choosing to enter the water without a snorkel because the size, unwieldiness and poor performance just wasnt worth the hassle. Yet, the use of a snorkel during a dive can help you save precious air while hanging on the anchor line waiting to descend. There are numerous situations where a dependable, high-performance snorkel is a valuable dive tool.
The Atomic Aquatics Scupper Valve snorkel design is based on the same principle as the one-way Scupper Valve used in boats. If waves or splashes enter the boat, a one-way rubber flapper located on the deck near the rear of the boat opens to drain the water then quickly closes to prevent backwash.The simple Scupper Valve effectively keeps the deck free of water accumulation. The biggest complaint about snorkels was size. The modern Scuba snorkel had evolved into a large and difficult to manage piece of equipment. Divers were abandoning the use of their snorkels because of size, discomfort and poor performance. So Atomic Aquatics imagined a smaller, streamlined snorkel design that clears easily and is comfortable to use. Atomic Aquatics strives to achieve sleek and stunning designs that are as attractive as they are functional. The SV Snorkel Series is no exception. Its sleek profile makes it easy to stow or strap as a valuable addition to your dive bag. Atomic divers will WANT to take the SV Snorkel to preserve tank PSI or paddle around an exotic lagoon between dives. The Scupper Valve (SV) design is self-draining and delivers crisp, effortless clearing.
