A new revolutionary pair of freediving googles have been unveiled.

The Hektometer goggles are able to combine the clarity and visibility of a mask with the comfort and performance of fluid googles. This can be achieved due to the goggles’ design.

Even though the goggles contain air, they also contain a silicone membrane against the glass. As the diver descends, the membrane expands and pushes towards the diver’s eye which effectively produces a clever self-equalizing system.

Over the past few months, the goggles have been tested at the Y-40 pool, and although initially it was thought they were good to 40m/130ft, they have proved reliable to 100m/330ft. Freediver Davide Carrera has tested them in competition, with multiple dives to 90m/300ft.

No word on price yet, but over the next few weeks, several Hektometer goggles should become available on Indiegogo.

You can find out more about the Hektometer googles here or check out a video of the goggles below.
