Singe-lens swim mask launched by Aqua Sphere
It must be approaching 18 years ago that I purchased my first swim ‘mask’ – the original Seal, also from Aqua Sphere. At the time a significant change from the typical swim goggle, it was a product I used and enjoyed for many years. Despite the increased size, the additional panoramic vision and – in an open water environment – the additional protection provided by the larger size of the mask was something I valued. Many thousands of others did too, judging by the volumes I saw at events.
Aqua Sphere have continued to provide swim masks in their range ever since, developing the Seal, Seal XP, Vista and other models and to kick-off 2019 have released details of a new model, the VISTA PRO, the key feature being a curved, single-lens “to provide uninterrupted distortion-free panoramic vision”.
Pictured above, here are the initial details from Aqua Sphere. We’ll try and put one to the test soon.
AQUA SPHERE LAUNCHES VISTA PRO SWIM MASK
Always ahead of the curve, Aqua Sphere has developed the world’s first single-lens swim mask to provide uninterrupted distortion-free panoramic vision
Building on the success of its best selling VISTA mask, swim equipment specialist Aqua Sphere is proud to launch the VISTA PRO™, the world’s first swim mask to use a single sleek curved lens to provide uninterrupted 180 degree panoramic vision. Ideal for open water and active swimmers, the VISTA PRO challenges the boundaries of aquatic eyewear technology to stay ahead of the curve, combining exceptional hydrodynamics, advanced fit, excellent comfort and patented Made in Italy construction quality with the most technologically advanced distortion-free vision ever available from a swim mask.
Featuring Triaxial Curvature Technology to provide uninterrupted superior optics, the stunning single curved lens of the Vista Pro is made in optical grade polycarbonate for unparalleled visual clarity. Clever new Pivoting Quick-Fit buckles make tightening and loosening quick and simple whilst the mask is in place and the pivoting action of the buckles allows the mask to adjust and rotate to accurately mirror the shape of the head, creating a truly comfortable watertight fit without undue pressure points and without risk of bending or warping the frame. To further enhance comfort, the hypoallergenic Latex-free flexible Silicone skirt includes patented Advanced Fit Technology which uses alternating matte and polished zones throughout the gasket to provide a watertight seal which feels soft against the skin. The VISTA PRO has been tested amongst Aqua Sphere’s roster of global athletes who have verified the innovative technology of its remarkable unobscured field of vision as well as its comfort credentials, wearing the mask for prolonged periods without tenderness or irritation.
Stylish, streamlined and delivering 100% UVA/UVB protection from its dramatic single lens, the Vista Pro is available to buy from January from quality sports retailers including Simply Swim, Pro Swimwear, Wiggle, Mail Sports, Allens and Sigma and all good dealers. Available in clear or dark lens options and a choice of gold, blue or green mirrored options which significantly reduce light transmission in bright outdoor conditions, this is a ground breaking addition to the Aqua Sphere mask stable. Prices start at £49.99 for clear and dark lens versions to £54.99 for mirrored lenses.
