One of the most popular goggles of its kind, Aqua Sphere's Seal mask is a terrific goggle option for athletes and recreational swimmers. The Seal mask has a unique design which offers the benefits of a goggle and a mask in one. This mask-goggle hybrid boasts the wide field of vision of a mask with the streamlined appearance of a goggle.
Made in Genoa, Italy, the Seal mask is highly acclaimed by Ironman triathletes throughout the world. Still, the Seal mask remains a classic in the goggle industry, known for its seamless appearance and watertight fit.
This goggle's skirt is wide, ensuring a snug, leak-free experience. Furthermore, the gasket is made of silicone which is extremely soft and comfortable, even after prolonged wear. The silicone gasket also ensures that the goggle is both durable and long-lasting.
Wide Lenses for Ultimate Visual Clarity
The goggle's lenses are unique in that they allow for 180 degree, panoramic vision – unheard of in most goggles. In addition, the lenses are constructed from AquaSphere's patented Plexisol™ which is a far more potent lens material. Plexisol™ is 10 times stronger than glass and 100 times lighter – giving AquaSphere goggles and masks an edge over other brands. Each lens is also treated with anti-fog and anti-scratch solutions to extend the life of the goggle.
Easy Strap Adjustment
Though masks tend to require less adjustment because they fit more snugly to the face, the importance of an easily-adjustable strap is not diminished. AquaSphere's goggle straps are quite unique. They are made of 100% silicone and designed to be easily adjusted. The adjustment mechanism is based on a simple push-button technology. The simplicity of the buckle is a refreshing change from customary goggles. Strap adjustments can even be made while the mask is in use.
Seal swim masks are available in 2 lens colors: clear lenses which are best for indoor and low-light conditions, and smoke lenses which are best for outdoor and bright light conditions. All lens types are 100% UVA/UVB resistant. Each Seal mask comes with a protective carrying case.
The Seal mask is also available in a kids version, Seal Kids Mask, and a higher quality version, Seal XP Mask.
