Introducing the new Sea Dragon Fluoro-Dual Beam for incredible night dives

Published

on

 

Reveal rich fluorescent colours! In partnership with Fire Dive Gear, SeaLife reveals their new Sea Dragon Fluoro-Dual Beam that emits a powerful blue light beam and adds an integrated dichroic filter creating the optimal light wavelength to excite underwater life.

Two switchable beams transform the versatile light from a blue fluoro 65° flood light to a real white 800 lumen 15° concentrated beam with a push of a button. A rechargeable Lithium Ion 7.4V, 3400 mAh, 25Wh battery delivers power for a continuous 2 hours at 100% fluoro emission. With its single button operation, the light can quickly adjust between four brightness modes: 100% fluoro flood, 50% fluoro flood, 100% white spot, and 50% white spot. Additionally, the Fluoro-Dual Beam has an emergency signal mode that is activated by holding the power button in for four seconds. The dive light is depth rated down to 330ft/100m.

Vibrant and rich fluoro-colours

The Sea Dragon Fluoro-Dual Beam’s Royal blue LED’s emit blue light in the range of 450-460nm that is in the approximate wavelength to “excite” the fish, plants or organisms into making a light filled energy response; SeaLife adds a finely tuned and proprietary dichroic filter that pinpoints the exact light wavelength in order to get the highest energy response from the underwater subject.

Enhance your underwater fluoro-viewing

Two universal, barrier filters are included to improve your experience in underwater fluorescent viewing and imaging. The mask filter fits over the dive mask to filter out the residual presence of blue light emitted by the light (it’s the response from the sea creature you want to see, not the blue light). The second filter attaches to any underwater camera with a lens diameter up to 47mm.

Easily expand with Flex-Connect

A Flex-Connect Single Tray, Grip and fitted case are included with the light. For those that want to expand an existing set, the light head is also available on its own. Flex-Connect allows you to quickly and easily transform your camera set from compact to full-featured in just seconds by adding grips, Flex Arms, trays and more with just a “click!”

Northern Diver announce new SV Dive Hoods

Published

on

Manufactured from supple, 5mm superstretch neoprene, and complete with a plush internal lining, this hood fits like a comfortable second skin. This is further enhanced by the Black Skin neoprene face seals on the inside and outside of the hood, designed to effectively hug the contours of the face, providing exceptional sealing properties.

Performance, fit and comfort are also improved thanks to the one-way Supervent valve, located at the top of the hood. This innovative vent removes trapped air from within the hood, increasing comfort and ensuring a perfect fit throughout the dive.

The effective fit and construction of the hood ensures exceptional thermal protection, however, this is further improved by a unique Ti-Ax® coating applied to the hood for superior heat retention. Likewise, it also features an external MA heavy duty coating, for increased durability and longevity.

FEATURES

  • Improved design
  • 5mm superstretch neoprene
  • Skin neoprene outer face seal
  • Skin neoprene inner face seal
  • Plush internal lining (red)
  • Supervent at top of hood
  • Unique Ti-Ax® Coating
  • External MA Heavy Duty Coating
  • x2 bartacks on chin seam
  • Northern Diver reflective logo
  • Overprint design on side panels

Available in a range of sizes from S to XXL with either a skin outer face seal or lined outer face seal.
