The Scubapro Steel Comp Mask
In an apnea mask, the small internal volume is extremely important, because every cm3 of internal volume must be compensated with precious breathing air during the descent, and wasted breathing air means a shorter or shallower dive. Thus, apnea masks with very small internal volume are very popular in freediving, because a small internal volume is essential for the success of the apnea dive.
With the Steel Comp apnea mask, Scubapro has not only managed to produce a very small volume mask, but even an apnea mask that reduces its volume with increasing pressure during the dive and thus saves even more breathing air.
The Scubapro Steel Comp mask is designed on a flexible framework, 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 this Scubapro apnea mask on the mask body. That is, instead of sucking uncomfortably on your face, the mask body of the Scubapro Steel Comp mask compresses itself and reduces the internal volume of the mask with increasing depth - you do not have to blow air into the mask when descending, and also have no painful pressure points from the rigid frame of the mask on the face at the end of the dive.
Quite clever the Scubapro Steel Comp apnea mask - but just for apnea divers. Because the Scubapro Steel Comp Freediving Mask is not suitable as a normal diving mask for scuba diving. This is because when the mask is compressed, the lenses of the Steel Comp mask reduce the distance to the eye and the eye must first adapt to the changed vision. With constant depth changes that occur in normal recreational diving, the constant change in vision would strain the eye and cause a feeling of dizziness or lightheadedness.
So if you are looking for a small volume scuba mask for scuba diving, you better have a look at the Scubapro Futura 1 or the Scubapro Steel mask in our online dive store, and also other scuba masks with a small internal volume.
Of course, the Scubapro Steel Comp mask convinces not only by the compressible mask body, but also by high-quality materials of the lenses and the mask body. The special material from which the lenses of the Scubapro Steel Comp mask were made, the revolutionary Ultra Clear glass, ensures that the green cast, which distorts the colors underwater with usual glass, completely disappears with the Scubapro Steel Comp diving mask.
The mask body of the Scubapro Steel Comp apnea mask is made of an extremely soft silicone, and is seamlessly molded in one piece, with a very snug sealing lip, which means that the Scubapro Steel Comp diving mask effortlessly adapts to virtually any face and fits perfectly.
In our online divestore you will of course also find other freediving equipment like freediving masks, freediving fins and other freediving accessories.
