Help bring the revolutionary AAK 180 Diving Mask to market (watch video)

Published

AAK 180 Diving Mask

The AAK 180 Diving Mask is the first single lens peripheral vision mask that frees your eyes to an immense under water world.

The AAK 180 Diving Mask is designed to give greater vision. Common masks have a limited range of vision; to appreciate the whole environment, you need to turn your head from side to side. With that in mind, the designers behind the AAK 180 knew they had to create a mask with peripheral vision, allowing lateral view – something that other masks don´t have. With the 180, there is greater freedom of movement and vision, which gives you a much better diving experience.

But it has not been easy. The AAK 180 Diving Mask is made of a single curved lens, which has required three years of studies, material analysis and testing to get it where it is today. A unique mask, not only in terms of vision underwater, but also in design, materials and comfort.

THE STRAP

Another new element of the 180 is the strap, designed for better comfort before, during and after diving.

  • The two-piece system helps to release it quickly and, with one movement, it falls on the chest, keeping  your hands free and without danger of losing the mask
  • Easy to put the mask on and off
  • Made of nylon 3/4 ” (1.9cm ). With UV protection
  • Convenient and easy to use

THE BAG

The AAK 180 Diving Mask comes with an ultra light and soft neoprene bag, designed to protect your mask and give you a comfortable way to carry it wherever you dive.

HOW CAN YOU HELP?

This project started 3 years ago, and after investigation, design, engineering prototyping and testing, the designers are ready to finish the molds and produce.

It´s been a long journey and now the team behind the AAK 180 Diving Mask need your help to get $23,000 US so production can start. With your help, the AAK 180 Diving Mask can revolutionize the way we see the underwater world.

There are some great perks available for investors. Visit the AAK 180 Diving Mask Indiegogo page now to find out how you can invest in this revolutionary product.

BARE infuses new Evoke with heat-capturing Graphene

Published

on

Elite immersion-wear designer and manufacturer, BARE, announced earlier this week the release of its newest iteration of the Women’s Evoke Wetsuit, now powered by Graphene Technology.

The new Evoke offers all of the flexible performance and superlative fit of previous models, but now integrates graphene carbon nanostructures that work in tandem with your body to capture and repurpose thermal energy to keep you warmer, for longer.

“The Evoke leverages heat-capturing Graphene Technology to provide enhanced thermal insulation and equalized heat distribution to your entire body,” the company says in a written statement.

By strategically weaving graphene into the core area of the suit, the warmth generated by your body moves from warm areas of the lining to cooler areas for added reflective properties.

Available in 7mm, 5mm and 3mm thicknesses, the newest Evoke promises freedom of movement and enhanced insulation technology to guarantee top comfort and safety on every aquatic adventure.
