The Atomic Aquatics Venom ARC Dive Mask has a reinforcing internal frame that's molded directly beneath the surface of the silicone rubber skirt, like the Atomic Sub frame dive mask, yet it offers the relatively low profile of the Frameless dive mask. Also, its faceplate is single window like the Frameless dive mask, but it has a high bridge and tear drop shape. The Atomic Venom Arc Dive Mask comes across as a high concept, stylish looking piece of gear when it's being held in your hand, and it's really comfortable when mounted on your face. Its easy to use squeeze to adjust buckles are soft mounted to the dive mask skirt, which allows a little bit of flexibility in strap positioning, plus they can be folded flat for packing.
Where the Atomic Venom ARC Dive Mask differs from its little brothers the Atomic Subframe dive mask and the Frameless dive mask is in its faceplate construction. While the Sub Frame and Frameless lenses use Ultra clear glass, which has quite a rep for optical quality in its own right, on the Atomic Venom Arc Dive Mask Atomic uses an even higher quality glass imported from Germany, the lens is called Schott Superwite glass, it allows more light to penetrate than even Ultra clear glass.
The Atomic Venom ARC Dive Mask offers an above average field of view, and the soft skirt and watertight seal combined to make the Atomic Venom Arc Dive Mask feel like a part of your face.
ARC Lens Technology found in the Atomic Venom Arc Dive Mask elevates UltraClear to a higher Level
Atomic Aquatics developed ARC (Anti-Reflective Coating) technology to reduce reflected light and actually increase the amount of available light transmitted to a diver’s eyes. The result is a greatly improved transmission of 98% of available light, compared to a loss of more than 14% of light with standard green "float" glass used on the majority of dive masks on the market.
Anti-Reflective Coatings on the Atomic Venom ARC Dive Mask or "ARC” is a multi-layer metal oxide coating process applied to both sides of the UltraClear lenses. This allows more light to enter the mask by reducing light reflections off the inside and outside surface of the Atomic Venom Arc Dive Mask lens. The metal oxide coating is only a few microns thick.
See Below how the technology in the Atomic Venom Arc Dive Mask works.
Between 4-14% of light can be reflected back or "lost” by the standard "green float glass” mask lenses used by our competition. ARC technology lenses are especially important for SCUBA divers underwater, where available light is quickly absorbed by the surrounding water.
