Atomic Aquatics SV Series Snorkels
It was finally time to reinvent the snorkel

Atomic Aquatics only designs and releases new products that we truly believe redefine a category and solve a diver need. Did something as simple as the snorkel really require new thinking? Well...yes. More and more divers were choosing to enter the water without a snorkel because the size, unwieldiness and poor performance just wasn’t worth the hassle. Yet, the use of a snorkel during a dive can help you save precious air while hanging on the anchor line waiting to descend. There are numerous situations where a dependable, high-performance snorkel is a valuable dive tool. The new Atomic Aquatics SV Series truly redefines how a snorkel works and helps divers extend their adventure.

SV: Scupper Valve
The Atomic Aquatics Scupper Valve snorkel design is based on the same principle as the one-way Scupper Valve used in boats. If waves or splashes enter the boat, a one-way rubber flapper located on the deck near the rear of the boat opens to drain the water then quickly closes to prevent backwash. The simple Scupper Valve effectively keeps the deck free of water accumulation.

SV: Small & Versatile
Before embarking on a new design, we asked divers about the snorkels that were currently on the market. Overwhelmingly, the biggest complaint about snorkels was size. The modern Scuba snorkel had evolved into a large and difficult to manage piece of equipment. Divers were abandoning the use of their snorkels because of size, discomfort and poor performance. So Atomic Aquatics imagined a smaller, streamlined snorkel design that clears easily and is comfortable to use.

SV: Sleek & Valuable
At Atomic Aquatics, we always strive to achieve sleek and stunning designs that are as attractive as they are functional. The SV Snorkel Series is no exception. Its sleek profile makes it easy to stow or strap as a valuable addition to your dive bag. Atomic divers will WANT to take the SV Snorkel to preserve tank PSI or paddle around an exotic lagoon between dives.
SV1 & SV2:

How it works.

The Scupper Valve inside the SV snorkel series works in the same way as the Scupper Valve on a boat. An internal tube (1) located inside the main snorkel body retains a small one way Scupper Flap Valve (2) that allows water to flow past the mouthpiece and out the purge valve, (3) without collecting at the bottom of the breathing passage. The diver simply exhales a small burst of air to clear any water trapped below the mouthpiece, keeping the internal tube airway dry. It’s so simple and so effective, we have a Patent Pending.

SV2:

High performance design with a Semi-Dry top.

The SV2 combines the Scupper Valve lower section with the sleek looking SV2 Semi-Dry top. The SV2 Semi-Dry top horizontal vents (1) diffuse splashed water (2) that would normally freely enter the snorkel top. The small gaps between the vanes of the vent restrict water speed and droplet size and permit most of the splashed water to exit the special vents (3) without entering the breathing tube. Thus you get less water in your snorkel. The SV2 is the perfect answer for rough or choppy water conditions.

Quick disconnect snorkel keeper includes 30 degree rotation.
Sliding snorkel keeper range adjuster allows for accurate placement without constant re-adjusting each dive.
Atomic Aquatics’ international and award winning styling team makes the SV1 and SV2 high performance snorkels something you would be proud to use.
