Mares is pleased to announce the addition of 4 new dive products for spring 2006. The new additions represent refinements to core products already in the line offering even more choices to divers.

Mares Demon Mask offers the widest field of vision with the least amount of drag. This streamlined frame incorporates Mares' exclusive Tricomfort technology which has a soft over molded material on the inside of the frame creating a cushiony pillow between the hard frame and your face. Tricomfort makes this mask extremely comfortable to wear for long durations, pressure at depth, equalization and clearing. Also included are easy adjust buckles attached to the skirt, first introduced to the market with the critically acclaimed X Vision mask, the Demon mask goes a step further to offer the greatest amount of comfort, with innovative technology only from Mares, just add water. Available colors for June clear/blue and clear/yellow. Three additional colors will be available in early September.

Avanti Excel full foot fin is an offspring of the Avanti Quattro Excel open heel combining Mares (patented) Super Channel Thrust and Optimized Pivoting Blade (O.P.B.) technology. O.P.B. optimizes the efficiency of the blade with every phase of the kick cycle. Whale tale design on the foot pocket actually transmits the power from the legs to the foot pocket down through this design to the blade. Super Channel Thrust adds in flexible channels at the blade propelling the water more efficiently off the blade giving you more thrust. An advanced fin, those seeking a great level of power will love the efficiency and supremacy of the Avanti Excel. June colors Blue and Yellow.
