Aqualite by Underwater Kinetics

Published

on

AqualiteBring out the incredible underwater colors and intricate detail of marine life with the Aqualite.  Fish and invertebrates hiding under ledges and holes often receive little ambient sunlight and require additional lighting for their colors tocome to life. Abundant light from the 20° Aqualite makes night diving even more beautiful and during the day it allows you to spot marine life hiding in the distance. When shooting video with the 65° or 90° Aqualite lighting the foreground with daylight colored Aqualite illumination while allowing the delicate blues and greens of the open water background to fade into the depths can produce prize winning videos.  A pair of Aqualites set at different brightness levels will add additional dimension and beauty to an underwater subject.

The Aqualite is available in 3 models with different beam coverage. The Aqualite (90°) has the widest uniform coverage, where as the Aqualite (65°) has a narrower beam, but more intensity. The Aqualite (20°) has the narrowest and brightest beam.  Use the 90° beam with fisheye type cameras like the GoPro and the 65° beam for the housed point and shoot cameras as well as  integrated U/W cameras like SeaLife.  The 20° beam is perfect for use as a primary dive light day or night.

About Bare

WE’RE NOT JUST IN YOUR ELEMENT; WE WERE BORN THERE

In a small factory on the coast of British Columbia—the brainchild of 2 divers determined on crafting a drysuit capable of surviving the frigid waters of the Canadian Pacific Ocean. With every stitch, our founders innovated. Through every failure, they pushed. Not for profit. For performance. To bring the sport of diving, equipment that fit better, functioned better, and lasted longer.

WE’VE SOLIDIFIED OUR HERITAGE AND THE PRINCIPLES WE WERE FOUNDED ON.

Our reputation for premier dive equipment has been upheld by the heart and passion each of our workers puts into every suit they make. Because, like our founders, they don’t just make the suits, they dive in them. It is this strong culture and unrelenting dedication to fit, craftsmanship, and innovation that has helped take us from that small shop in British Columbia to a global brand.
