Noseclips are essential for hands-free equalization in competitive freediving and there is a new noseclip about to hit the market from Swiss Top Level Freediver Pascal Berger – the Octopus Noseclip.
The idea behind the new noseclip is to stop wasting time cutting-glueing-drying pads to replace them when they fall apart. To have pads that last for the life of the noseclip, and can be replaced easily, without glue.
The design is complete and is made with top-quality materials and finish, its ergonomic shape and anti-slippery silicone pads ensure a tight grip and no leaks, for perfect equalization.
Pascal now wants to move to full production and is seeking your help to do that. He has launched a Crowd Funding campaign on Indiegogo which allows you to order 1 or more noseclips at the discovery price of $27 USD/ €24 EUR and help fund the production of the noseclip. All money raised through the campaign will be used to cover the $15,000 USD production costs to get the product to market. For those that place an initial order the first deliveries are expected in September-October 2016.
Pascal had this to say on his Indiegogo page:
“I am a freediver competitor and instructor, but I have also been working as product designer for many years. This makes me not only aware of what freedivers need and want in a good noseclip, but also able to create and design a product that will meet these needs. Being from Switzerland, it is in my genes to care about precision, quality and attention to detail, and I will make sure I personally check and supervise the whole manufacturing process step by step in Switzerland, to offer you a final product of the best quality possible.”
