This is a good quality mask. It’s got low volume so it’s easy to clear but they’ve still managed to keep a big field of vision.
The Honest Truth
This is a good allrounder mask, the silicone is comfy, the buckles are sturdy and those big lenses give good peripheral vision.
Inspired by the Nano series’ great success, Cressi’s Air Crystal is a highly durable diving mask with great design and innovative technical features that differentiate it notably from other options in the market.
Not only has this new Cressi Crystal Silicone been chosen, with its exceptional softness and comfort, but the entire design of the skirt has followed new rules which allow a point of contact between the mask and the face that has a very open angle.
Silicone Crystal a new, incredible, frontier in the world of transparency. It has a long life in time, does not yellow and, thanks to its special chemical composition, drastically reduces the tedious effect of fogging the lenses. An absolute Cressi exclusive.
The Air Crystal’s advanced hydrodynamic profile is a byproduct of Cressi’s Dual Integrated Frame Technology System patent, integrating the silicone skirt to the lens frame. This results in a reduced overall thickness and an increased field of vision.
The Big Eyes inclined lenses system is prolonged by soft curved lines above the cheekbones, improving lower and lateral visibility that are practically unlimited.
This mask’s EVO skirt is made of a silicon chloride-less silicon blend which, in addition to having absolute transparency to improve visibility, has an increased resistance to both fogging and premature discoloration, giving it a greater durability in accordance with the well-known Italian brand’s equipment-for-life guidelines.
The Air Crystal’s frame has swiveling, easily adjustable buckles that increase user customization, providing stability, adaptability and unprecedented fitting to this mask.
This mask has a particular tapered structure deriving directly from the highly popular Nano-mask patent.
The Dual Integrated Frame Technology System allows you to join the silicone skirt to the lens frame without major interruptions of the curvature continuity.
The result is a mask with an extremely hydrodynamic shape and, visibility being equal, a significantly smaller size.
The field of view obtained is particularly wide, laterally and in the lower zone.
The skirt, in the front part, has a structural silicone insert which increases the sealing ability of the mask and creates an exceptionally pleasant chromatic play.
Micrometer adjustable buckles.
