The AirTool Dual
The revolutionary AirTool snorkel has been perfected with over ten years of design and testing. The result is a US, EU, and Australian patented device that makes swimming easier and more enjoyable. Whether you are a Competitive Swimmer, Beginner Swimmer, Swim for Fitness, or Snorkeler/Diver- the AirTool is an indispensable swimming device. Unleash Swimming with the AirTool!
Moldable Ergonomic Fit – Each AirTool can be personalized to each individual’s unique face. The lower Grey/Silver portion is made bendable by encasing metal in a polyurethane material for a personalized fit.
Hydrodynamic Design – The AirTool’s unique “dual-tube” design and moldable fit means the faster the swimmer goes through the water, the better the AirTool fits. This hydrodynamic efficiency means that open water swimmers using fins and paddles will be able to cover greater distances, faster than any swimmer has ever before. The dual tubes also makes air intake easier by doubling the air passage.
How the AirTool keeps water out:
1) The Splashguards – Hydrodynamically designed covers on the upper openings virtually eliminate all water from entering the snorkel.
2) Purging Mechanism- The Revolution takes place inside! Patented ‘Purge at Will’ Mechanism and Drainage Chambers located inside the snorkel enables the swimmer to purge any amount of water from the snorkel AT WILL!
Here is how they work: any water that enters the snorkel is directed to a drainage area below the mouth. When the swimmer wishes to purge this water from the drainage area they simply exhale through the mouth which activates the internal flap valves making the air pressure inside the snorkel greater than the external water pressure. This change of pressure instantly purges water and air out of the one way valve.
Hypoxic Pins – For swimmers looking to maximize their aerobic fitness the AirTool has “Hypoxic Pins” which allow the user to regulate the air flowing through the chamber. By restricting the air flow the swimmer lungs are forced to work harder, simulating aerobic exercise at altitude for a Hypoxic effect, which increases Red Blood Cell levels and gives the athlete a higher VO2 max.
