SCUBAPRO introduces the Seawing Supernova

Published

on

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.

SeaLife Launches the new SportDiver ULTRA Smartphone Underwater Housing

Published

Smartphone Underwater Housing

Right in time for the summer season SeaLife launches the new SportDiver Ultra Smartphone housing, which is designed to accommodate also larger Android models. The new Ultra model has all SportDiver features including use of the same SportDiver iOS and Android app. The primary difference is a slight increase in length of the housing and a lens port to support the lens cluster popular with many large Android models such as the Samsung S21 and S23, and S24 Ultra models.

Underwater Housing

The SeaLife SportDiver Ultra housing allows taking photos and videos with the smartphone down to 40 meters. The heavy-duty housing is constructed of polycarbonate, stainless steel, aluminum, and optical grade glass. Weighing less than 641 grams, it offers near-neutral buoyancy in water depending on which smartphone is used. The ergonomic design is easy to hold and use, featuring a large shutter lever and rear control buttons for easy operation, even with dive gloves. The free SportDiver camera app for Android and iOS also offers a power-save mode that temporarily turns the phone’s camera off and dims the display; a touch to any button wakes it up at once. The App Playback mode shows full size photos and videos with a vertical thumbnail strip to easily find your images. All files are also saved to the phone’s camera roll. The housing automatically connects to your phone and the SportDiver app using Bluetooth® Low Energy wireless technology and offers ultra-low power consumption which is powered by two AAA batteries that last over 50 hours of continuous use.

The SportDiver Ultra has “Dual Leak Alarms” which include an internal moisture alarm and a vacuum pressure alarm which alert the diver with on-screen warnings, audio, and LED signal in the unlikely event the waterproof seal is compromised when there’s a loss of housing pressure or moisture is detected. The housing features a new interior design that is less sensitive to moisture caused by opening the door in a damp environment. The door of the SportDiver Ultra is sealed with a TPE O-ring and a robust cam-lock sealing latch that easily and securely locks waterproof door.

The SportDiver Housing features seven 1/4-20 tripod mount options, a removable underwater color-correction filter is included. It is also available as a SportDiver Ultra PRO 2500 set with light, tray, and handle.
