Designed with a styled touch based on the VADER mask. VADER fanette features a single, UV420 lens form with a smaller beautifully contoured body. Its specially tailored silicone skirt extends beyond the cheekbones for a more effective seal. VADER fanette is the perfect option for divers looking for a chic, yet high-performance mask.
UV420 CUT lens
The UV420 Cut lens is able to block harmful HEV (high-energy visible light in 400 to 420 nm spectrum) which causes oxidative stress and deterioration of lutein.* * 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.
UV420 Cut Aqua Lens
Get the following benefits from UV420 glass Eye Protection … Blocks harmful UV and near infrared wavelengths. Cutting near infrared rays helps preserve the composition of lutein, so important for healthy vision. Brighter field of vision…Overall visibility is effectively enhanced by the bluish tint (aqua color).
How a tunnel looks with different colored light 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 UV400 amber lens increases contrast. Meanwhile, a UV420 lens lets everything remain brighter overall. White LED light
Light tends to cause oxidative stress and lutein (pigment) deterioration.
Protection of lutein reduces oxidative stress: less pigment deterioration.

New Lip Form (new-form silicone)
Differing from previous masks, with a new lip design, the VADER Fanette is less prone to leakage around the cheeks when you use a regulator. As the picture shows, the outline around the cheek and cheekbone, extending beyond the most uneven contours of the face, ensures better sealing. This makes it harder for leaks to occur.
SOFT TOUCH: Skirt with curled lip and integrated strap clip
All-in-one design ensures firm but gentle contact with the face. When you pull on the strap, you get an effective seal that is less likely to leave impressions on your skin.
NO STRESS: Soft damper
Normally, due to pressure squeeze and other causes, mask frames designed to improve the downward arc of vision tend to exert more pressure on the cheekbones. The soft damper relieves this stress.
MINIMIZES WATER POOLING: Drain skirt
The drain skirt design improves water expulsion during mask clearance and minimizes water pooling.
WIDER FIELD OF VIEW: Low volume
Low volume further improves the excellent arc of vision you get with the single-lens design. Enjoy a wide view that's great for any form of diving.
EASY ADJUST: DX spec mask buckle
While the mask is fitted, the release buckle and fine pitch strap adjustability make it easy to find the most comfortable fit. Even wearing thick gloves, you can easily adjust the mask using one hand.
DIFFICULT TO LEAK: Leakless system
Water is most likely to flood the nose and mouth area when gaps open in the seal between mask and skin. This may happen, for example, if the mask rides up on the face, and if leaking occurs at the cheeks when you are adding a mouthpiece or at the the corners of the mouth when you grin underwater. Here, to avoid compromising the seal when your facial muscles move, the mask form is optimized to maintain fit and feel.
Even while inheriting the form of the VADER, the low volume design makes it easier to exhale into the mask for equalization and mask clearing.
When wearing the VADER, some women said the mask felt a little too big. Designed to fit a female face, to be neither too big nor too small when worn by a woman, the new form reflects this sensitivity.
