Scubapro announce new Nova 850 TEC



Performance, reliability, and user-friendliness are the keys to success in underwater lighting. In these categories, the new Nova 850 Tec from Scubapro excels.

Its aluminium housing makes it almost indestructible and the rotary switch makes it easy to operate. With a MOD of 300m, it is the most powerful model in the Nova range. The focus has been placed on user comfort and reliability, making it particularly suitable for demanding dives or as backup light for technical divers.

The new Nova 850 TEC is a stable single-mode dive light and delivers intense 850 lumens with a focused beam. This makes it ideal for illuminating dark areas in wrecks or hidden crevices.

An unbeatable feature is the easy twist-on/twist-off activation, which is comfortable to operate even with thick gloves. With a 100% mode, the rotary switch, and 3C-Cell batteries, it offers absolute functional efficiency with maximum reliability.

The lamp body is made of a strong aluminium housing, which makes it light, highly stable, and extremely robust at the same time. The lamp’s matt black, blue accentuated housing completes the cool “tech” look.

In addition, it offers a practical attachment point for a carabiner so that it can be securely attached to the D-ring and an over-pressure valve to release battery gases as a special safety feature.

Divers looking for a powerful, easy-to-use underwater light for night and day dives will make a smart choice with the Nova 850 TEC.

Introducing Fourth Element’s new glove range



More fit, more flex, more warmth

Fourth Element’s long-standing range of gloves have been a popular choice for divers since 2008. Redesigned using new materials and construction for even greater fit, flex and warmth, their new gloves offer even better performance than before.

You’ll find four new neoprene styles in the range; 3mm, 5mm, 5mm Kevlar and a 7mm mitt. Each has been carefully considered for purpose. The 5mm, 5mm kevlar and 7mm mitt all feature Hydrolock technology; taken from fourth element’s wetsuit seals, these provide an advanced seal at the wrist for minimal water ingress. The 3mm has been improved with addtional bartacks meaning you can cut it to your desired length and the seam wont be damaged. Most notably the carbon print on the backs of all the gloves have been removed and replaced on the palms with new Octogrip design for better flexibility which optimises comfort.

You can compare old to new on the product pages using the handy sliders fourth element have produced.

Get ready for your next underwater adventure with Typhoon International’s new Pro Combo set of mask and snorkel.
