The NOVA snorkel from Aquaspeed is a revolutionary dry snorkel packed with fantastic features such as the ULTRA DRY system that repels splash water thanks to a small chamber in the upper valve. Thanks to a floating element inside, it allows only air to reach the diver’s mouth. As soon as the upper valve is submerged in water, the floater blocks access to the main chamber of the snorkel, thus preventing any water from finding its way to the mouthpiece.
If any drops of water do leak in, they collect inside the purge chamber, at the bottom of the snorkel. From there they either leak out of the one-way exhaust valve, or can be blown out though that valve with minimal effort on the part of the diver. NOVA’s main chamber features a large bore tube designed for easy breathing. Its flexible and comfortable mouthpiece is made of high quality silicone, which is not only soft and comfortable but also durable, thanks to specially reinforced structure. Additionally, a corrugated flexible middle section allows the snorkel to drop away from the face when not in use. This is particularly useful for scuba divers, when they want to switch from snorkel to a breathing apparatus.
The QUICK-type detachable, rotating and height adjustable clip for the mask strap allows the user to attach the snorkel to the mask strap and not worry about the need of detaching it everytime the set will be transported. The QUICK system is made of two main elements, one of which the diver can leave permanently attached to the mask strap. The two elements then connect in an easy and quick fashion.
