The Scubapro Steel Comp mask
The Steel Comp is a very small, light and flexible apnea mask, a small volume mask for freediving, with an innovative, flexible frame and a very comfortable fit.
Scubapro apnea mask with small internal volume
The small internal volume of an apnea mask is extremely important, because every cm3 of internal volume must be compensated for with precious breathing air during the descent, and wasted breathing air means a shorter or shallower dive. Freediving apnea masks with a very small internal volume are therefore very popular because a small internal volume is essential for a successful apnea dive. And the compact Scubarpo Steel Comp diving mask focuses precisely on these features.
Flexible apnoea diving mask for freediving - internal volume reduces with increasing depth
With the Steel Comp apnoea mask, Scubapro has not only managed to produce a very small-volume mask, but also an apnoea mask that reduces its volume as the pressure increases during the dive, thus saving even more breathing air.
The Scubapro Steel Comp mask has been designed on a flexible frame and is the only mask that can compress with increasing depth, thus transferring the suction effect that the increasing external pressure exerts on your face in normal masks to the mask body in this Scubapro apnea mask. This means that instead of clinging uncomfortably to your face, the mask body of the Steel Comp compresses itself and reduces the internal volume of the mask with increasing depth - you don't have to compensate mask pressure by exhaling into the mask when descending, and at the end of the dive you don't have any painful pressure points on your face from the rigid frame of the mask.
Small freediving mask for many water sports - but not ideal for scuba diving
These Scubapro freediving mask is pretty clever - but only for apnea divers, snorkelers or for underwater rugby or polo. However, the Steel Comp is not so suitable as a scuba mask. When the mask gets compressed with increasing pressure, the lenses of the Steel Comp mask reduce the distance to the eye and the eye must first adapt to the change in vision. With the constant depth changes that occur during normal recreational diving, the frequent change in vision would strain the eye and cause a feeling of dizziness or drowsiness.
So if you are looking for a small-volume diving mask for scuba diving, take a look at the Scubapro Ghost or the TUSA Ceos masks in our online diving store, as well as other diving masks with a small internal volume that are perfect as SCUBA masks.
High-quality apnea mask with pressure-tested Ultra Clear lenses
Of course, the Scubapro Steel Comp not only impresses with its compressible mask body, but also with the high-quality materials used for the lenses and mask body. The special material from which the lenses of this Scubapro freediving mask are made, the revolutionary Ultra Clear glass, ensures that the green tint that distorts the colors underwater with conventional glass disappears completely with this mask.
Very comfortable freediving mask with soft silicone seal
The mask body is made of extremely soft silicone and is seamlessly molded in one piece, with a very supple sealing lip, which means that the Steel Comp adapts effortlessly to almost any face and fits perfectly.
In our online divestore you will of course also find other freediving equipment such as freediving masks, freediving fins and other freediving accessories.
