Features:
Our top-of-the-line snorkel is designed like no other snorkel on the market. It's a compact, easy-to-use, and comfortable dry snorkel. It's designed with a special baffle system to help keep water out and enhance ease of breathing during surface snorkeling. The flexible neck drops out of the way when diving, reducing the possiblity of snorkel tangles.

Other Features: Wide color variety; hypoallergenic; ozone- and UV-resistant; quick-release snorkel clip-on mask strap.

Colors: Black (BK), clear blue (BU), pink (PK), neon green (NG), neon yellow (NY), purple (PR), clear (CL)

TUSA SP-580Q IMPREX II HYPERDRY SNORKEL
The exhaust pipe features a special cross-cut design to allow for quick, efficient clearing. The Hyperdry system helps to keep the snorkel clear and the mouthpiece is specially angled for a perfect fit in your mouth. Both of these snorkels have a special internal purge channel located below the mouthpiece which deflects exhaled air out the top of the snorkel while excess water drains through the bottom purge valve.

CROSS-CUT DESIGN EXHAUST PIPE
The exhaust pipe features a special cross-cut design to make it easy to blow the water out of the snorkel.

ONE-TOUCH ADAPTOR
TUSA snorkels introduce a one touch snorkel adaptor for easier attachment to the mask strap.

WIDE COLOR SELECTION
TUSA snorkels are designed to offer divers more freedom and come in a full spectrum of colors to coordinate with masks and other equipment.

CRYSTAL SILICONE MOUTHPIECE
TUSA snorkels provide a crystal silicone mouthpiece that is engi-neered for comfort. They mini-mize jaw fatigue and swing out of the way when they are not in use.

CRYSTAL SILICONE ONE-TOUCH ADAPTOR
TUSA snorkels introduce a one touch snorkel adaptor for easierattachment to the mask strap.

FLEXIBLE JOINT
TUSA snorkels feature a flexible joint so they are ideal for diving and great for snorkeling: the SP-110 snorkels have an oval joint to reduce water resistance thoroughly.

LARGE CAPACITY DRAIN CHAMBER
TUSA snorkels provide a large capacity drain chamber and purge valve       (large size oval purge valve : SP-580Q) which allows quick and efficient clearing.

HOLOGRAM TOP REFLECTOR (SP-300Q)
The SP-300Q has a hologram top reflector for superior identification.

INTERNAL PURGE CHANNEL (SP-580Q) [PAT. P.]
The SP-580Q has a special internal purge channel located below the mouth-piece. It channels exhaled air out the top the snorkel while excess water drains through the bottom purge.

 

 

TUSA PLATINA SEMI-DRY SNORKEL
Maintains the ideal angle for snorkeling. The world's first three dimensional pipe.
The three-dimensional pipe curve is the result of years of snorkel design and repeat-ed model changes. Using the average posture when swimming on the surface as the basis, it maintains the ideal angle for effective breathing. To insure that the pipe top is close to the top of the head, it is curved along the head section and has an incline at the back. This creates a greater feeling of unity between the snorkel and head to further reduce water resistance.





The ultimate in oval types to reduce water resistance.
The oval design, a unique feature of TUSA snorkels, has now been further improved in the pipe. It provides direc-tion to water blown upward to insure a clear snorkel at all times while mini-mizing water resistance during snorkeling. The pipe interior, with its bellows section, has a new flush sur-face to further smooth the air flow.

Maintain pipe stability.
On the inside of the one-touch adapter, which allows easy mask attachment/re-moval and position adjustment are two pillars which create a difference in high and low position. This lets you accurate-ly adjust the strap to prevent the pipe from shaking or falling forward. The new design maintains the ideal angle.
New pipe top function with three currentrectifying plates.
TUSA led the industry in developing the Hyperdry System [PAT.] which is becoming a new world standard in snorkel-ing. The three blade current rectifying plate is a new func-tion offering a further improvement of that system. It recti-fies the flow of the water entering the system while effective-ly guiding it to the escape pipe for ejection. It also prevents water spray when clearing the snorkel and controls water return and shaking of the pipe.
