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.

SCUBAPRO introduces the Seawing Supernova



SCUBAPRO introduces the Seawing Supernova, a new diving fin designed to deliver maximum power when you need it.

Winner of the prestigious, internationally recognized Red Dot Award for product design, the Seawing Supernova is a remarkable step up from the Seawing Nova in performance, construction, fit and versatility, with an innovative blade shape that produces much more power, speed and manoeuvrability.

Power is key in a diving fin and the Seawing Supernova delivers. The fin’s proven Pivot Control Technology ensures the blade is pre-set in the 40º to 50º range, which is the optimal angle of attack for the blade and ideal for converting kicks into forward propulsion. This hinge system works in tandem with the blade’s unique flexible Auto-Adjust central panel which fine-tunes the angle of attack by counter-pivoting based on the strength of the kick. This provides a milder angle of attack for comfort when kicking gently, a more aggressive angle of attack when power kicking at full strength, and anything in between.  When it comes to frog and alternate kicks, new twin-tip winglets increase control and markedly improve manoeuvrability.

Made of premium Monprene® for maximum durability, the Seawing Supernova’s innovative two-piece design, with blade and foot pocket molded separately, disassembles easily for travel. Sold as an open heel set with foot pocket and blade pre-assembled, the Seawing Supernova’s open heel foot pocket features an upgraded heavy-duty bungee strap that allows for micro-adjustments to accommodate different boot types, and extended grip pads that provide an improved non-skid grip on wet surfaces.

The two-piece design also makes it possible to replace the standard open heel foot pocket with an optional full foot pocket for barefoot diving. Simply disassemble the fin’s Socket-Lock Connecting System, switch out the open heel foot pocket with a full foot pocket, reassemble and you’re ready to hit the water. The full foot pocket is also made of premium Monprene® and features a re-profiled heel-retention cup to prevent slipping and chafing.

A key fob-style multi-Tool is included for assembly and disassembly of the foot pocket and blade, along with a travel-friendly storage bag.

The new Seawing Supernova is the essential power fin for avid recreational and professional divers seeking maximum performance, speed and control in all diving conditions.
