Derived from Mantis LV, Mantis LV-R (Reloaded) incorporates a smaller overall form, added features and refined styling accents.Exclusively equipped with UV420 AR lenses, and Gull’s brand new Comfort-Fit Technology silicone body, Mantis LV-R truly is much more than a size scale down.
1. Reinforced Damper
Facial movements may compromise a mask’s seal causing flooding around the lips. Reinforced dampers keep the skirt’s edges securely in place preventing flooding even with substantial facial movements.
2. 3D Leak Guard
Faces tend to crease around nose and mouth (laugh lines), and do even more so when clenching a snorkel or regulator. The skirt’s inner three-dimensional surface is specifically engineered to maintain a locked seal at the laugh lines.
3. Temple Line
The skirt’s trim is augmented to avoid the hairline near the temples to further prevent chances of flooding.
4. Easy-Pinch Nose Pocket
Construction of the nose pocket and surrounding area is altered making it much easier to pinch the nose for improved equalization. Gaps between nose and frame are widened allowing for an easy pinch even when wearing thicker gloves.
UV420 CUT AR Amber Lens
UV420 CUT AR lenses offer protection against UV & HEV rays preventing deterioration of Lutein (responsible for protecting the eye tissues from sunlight damage). The amber coloring enhances visibility by increasing contrast to better see objects underwater.
UV420CUT Lens Function
Protects eyes from UV rays (up to 400nm),and HEV light (400-420nm), that contribute to oxidative stress and deterioration of lutein*.
An Eye Behind an Ordinary Lens
Light tends to cause oxidative stress and lutein (pigment) deterioration.
An Eye Protected by a UV420 Cut Lens
Protection of lutein reduces oxidative stress: less pigment deterioration.
*People say that lutein acts like natural sunglasses. It is present as a pigment in the retina, the crucial part of the eye that receives light and lets you see. Here, helping to prevent cumulative macular degeneration, it blocks harmful light and has an anti-oxidant effect. Lutein is destroyed when it absorbs harmful light. Its presence in the retina is limited and, because the body cannot make lutein, it can only be replaced by eating lutein-rich food.
Features of Amber Color Lens
Comparing Orange and White (LED) Light Effects in a Tunnel
Orange light makes objects more visible by in increasing the contrast of shadowed edges. White light increases overall visibility by generally lighting everything more brightly. As in the orange-lit tunnel, a UV420 amber lens increases contrast.
