Masks


Aqualung Sphera Mask

MANUFACTURER: Aqualung
CODE: 105010
PRICE: $89.00

Green Tick Small  IN STOCK NOW

Brought back by popular demand, the extremely low volume Sphera is very popular with Scuba Divers, Underwater Hockey players as well as freedivers around the globe. A totally unique mask design with curved lenses that don't magnify everything underwater! This means crayfish look the correct size and distance away, as does anything else like the U/W Hockey puck or the fish you're trying to shoot!

Plus with full 180 degree wrap round lenses the vision is exceptional and is the lowest volume mask made today!

The downside is that you must really look after this mask... the plastic lenses mean that scratching can happen and you have to get in the habit of keeping the mask protected and not just throw it onto the boat or into your bag.

But with a little care you can take advantage of one of the most amazing masks in the world!


  • 100% UVA & UVB protection
  • Patented Plexisol® lens provides 180-degree visibility
  • Anti-fog and scratch-resistant coating
  • Hydrodynamic styling
  • Easy-adjust buckle system

How to fit your new Mask

Fit is the most important thing when choosing a mask, so once your mask arrives, please follow this procedure to try and as closely as possible verify it will fit once you are in the water...

  1. First move the strap out of the way, look straight up at the ceiling so your face is as parallel to the ceiling as possible and put the mask in position on your face.
  2. Gently inhale (sniff) through your nose
  3. While you are trying to inhale, the mask should seal to your face and stop you being able to inhale through your nose
  4. As soon as you stop inhaling the mask might move and lose its seal, this is normal and doesn't indicate a bad fit. It is only while inhaling that it should seal, although sometimes if you inhale forcefully it will cause a vacuum and stay sealed, but this doesn't mean it is a better fit. If it seals while inhaling, that is a good start, if it leaks after several tries, the mask may not suit your face shape and you may wish to swap it for another model, please do so! (If you have a moustache and it's not sealing well because of that you should purchase our Moustache Mask Sealer sticks - they work!)
  5. If it sealed, the next step is while standing in a normal position, put the mask on with the strap and adjust the strap till it is comfortable. Gently inhale again and make sure it still seals. (Remember... over-tightening a mask can deform the shape of the skirt and make it leak more! Adjust the strap so the mask is tight enough not to move while swimming, never tighter!)
  6. If it passes both of these tests you should be ok once in the water. Well done you've found a proper fitting mask!

Care and Maintenance - Mask

The following Care and Maintenance information is provided for products that do not have a specific owner's manual and is intended as a general guide for basic care and maintenance of your Scuba Equipment.

Mask Care and Maintenance
Care Before the Dive:

  1. During the manufacturing process, a thin film of silicone will develop on the glass lens. This film of silicone will cause rapid fogging that is resistant to conventional anti-fog measures. It is important to remove this film of silicone from the lens prior to your first dive. To remove the film you will need to scrub the lens inside and out with a mild abrasive. A paste toothpaste is ideal but a liquid scrub will also work. Rub the cleanser into the lens with your fingers several times and then rinse clean thoroughly.
  2. Mask fogging is a normal occurrence, even after the film of silicone has been removed. Normal fogging can be easily prevented with after market anti-fog agents or saliva. Rub onto the lens and then rinse. Your dive will now be fog free!
  3. Some after after-market anti-fog agents contain formaldehyde, alcohol, or other substances that may damage the plastic materials used in your mask. If unsure, avoid prolonged exposure of the anti-fog agent with the plastic parts of your mask.

Care During the Dive:

  1. When entering the water either from a boat or a beach, place a hand over the lens of your dive mask and hold it securely in place. This will help ensure your mask stays in place during entry and will help deflect any direct impact of water on the lens caused by the jump into the water or any approaching waves.
  2. A typical dive staging area is a dangerous place for dive masks. Care should be taken to not leave your mask in a location where it might be exposed to dropping weight belts or tanks.
  3. It is best to avoid putting your mask on your forehead at any time during the dive. Several factors can cause the mask on your forehead to be dislodged and subsequently lost. If you want to temporarily remove the mask from your face, place the mask around your neck.

Care After the Dive:

  1. Soak in warm fresh water (not over 49°C) to dissolve salt crystals.
  2. Rinse thoroughly with fresh water and towel dry before final storage.

Storage:

  1. Store in a cool, dry and protected place out of direct sunlight.
  2. Store separated from other dive gear as the black pigmentation of other equipment may discolor the clear silicone skirt of your mask.

Chemicals/Solvents:

  1. Avoid any contact with alcohol, oil, gasoline, aerosols, or chemical solvents.
  2. Do not expose any part to aerosol spray, as some aerosol propellants attack or degrade rubber and plastic materials.
  3. Do not use any type of alcohol, solvent or petroleum based substances to clean or lubricate any part.
  4. Do not store your equipment near any oil, gasoline, chemicals, or solvents.
