VX1 UV Mask
Out Of Stock
The Apeks VX1 UV Mask is a single lens snorkel or dive mask with a low internal volume, wide field of vision and a special glass lens. The frameless design of the VX-1 brings the glass lens closer so you have a wider field of vision compared to a framed mask. The UV lens cuts out certain wavelengths to reduce glare and increase colour contrast in the water.
Who's the VX1 For?
Any diver or snorkeller will find the VX1 comfortable and because of it's low volume it's easy to clear. Small features all over the mask make it more comfortable and seal better than other masks but it is also available with a Standard Glass Lens.
- Frameless construction creates a lightweight, low volume mask which is easy to clear and equalise.
- Two lens options: Pure Clear lens provides maximum optical clarity with no distortion. The UV Cut lens provides eye protection from harmful HEV light which is present even on cloudy days, ideal for professional divers who may spend long periods of time at the surface.
- Advanced skirt geometry is designed to minimise facial pressure points during long duration dives.
- Quick Release Buckles with stainless-steel rollers allow easy adjustment for the best fit, even while wearing dry gloves.
- Matte and gloss areas on the silicone skirt create a better seal and improve fit and comfort.
- Premium, surgical-grade solid black or solid white silicone.
- Supplied with a comfortable silicone mask strap and an additional neoprene strap, all in a reusable zipped protective case.
- Designed and produced in Italy.
Apeks VX1 UV Mask - Features
?Some mask lenses are specially coated to improve colour / light characters. Most coatings work by reducing the amount of light that is reflected as it passes through the glass, reducing glare and reflections and improving brightness within the mask. Close.
?Masks are available with either an external (Frame) or internal (Frameless) which gives the mask it's structural strength.
Somes advantages of an external frame design are replacement of parts as the mask can usually be dismantled into its component parts and some manufacturers offer off the shelf corrective lenses which can be retro fitted.
The advantages of a frameless design are that the mask is usually of a lower profile (less internal volume) which masks clearing easier, the skirt wraps around the internal frame providing a more flexible seamless finish and the overall weight of the mask is reduced. Close.
?The main lenses are available in two different configurations, Single and Twin.
Single lens masks provide a more open vision as the frame between the centre of the eyes is removed, this also typically results in a lower profile mask.
Twin lens masks can allow for individual corrective lenses to be retro fitted, completely replacing the original lenses. Close.
?A low profile mask offers the smallest internal volume possible, making clearing easier. Close.
?Some masks allow off the shelf perscription lenses to be retro fitted to the mask, completely replacing the original lenses. Close.
?A one way purge valve can be incorporated into the frame or nose section to allow for hassle free mask clearing. The diver just needs to tilt his/her head to allow the water to flow to the valve and be purged out. Close.
?Side lenses are small glass panels which provide better peripheral vision and also increase the amount of light that is able to enter the mask.
The lenses can either be fitted directly to the main lenses to offer a seamless field of view or as separate lenses built into the side of the mask frame. Close.
?The skirt is the seal around your face that stops the water from getting in. Cheaper masks will just have a Thermoplastic that will do the job but harden over time and discolour if left in the sun. Most are Silicone that are soft, create an effective seal and don't discolour quickly. The highest-grade silicone is Hypoallergenic that is purer with few impurities for a crystal-clear skirt that is soft and effective. Close.
