Rating: Atomic Ultra Clear Subframe Mask
Reviewer: Leo L.  -  View all my reviews
I used the Atomic UC Subframe Mask in a week long dive trip in Cuba. It offered good field of vision being a low profile mask. The nose pocket is on the small side, and having a fairly low/flat nose I was a bit concerned before diving with the mask but I had no problem reaching my nose or equalizing. The mask cleared quite well and it did not fog at all during the dozen dives - with max depth just over 100ft. The colours came through well but I cant comment on how the make would perform in night dives since none of my dives have been night dives. Definitely recommend.

Reviewer: Randy H.
Read all the reviews, not one to buy into hype but I have to say this mask is night and day different from the TUSA models Ive worn over the last few years. I noticed that the nose pinch area is smaller than the TUSA Im used to. Uncertain if this will pose any problems. The mask is also smaller than the TUSA models I have. Vision doesnt seem to be hindered but the mask is noticibly smaller. Anxious to test out the mask on my upcoming trip to the Caymans. Especially at night where this lens technology is supposed to shine.

Rating: Love this mask!
Reviewer: Timothy Locklear
Very comfortable, decent field of vision, low volume, and easy to clear. I have got compliments on it each time Ive been out. Not that easy to attach a snorkel... not that I take one with me that much...

Questions and Answers for Atomic Ultra Clear Subframe ARC Technology Mask:


  • Michael:

    Hi, I just received the Venom mask yesterday and unfortunately, it does not seal around my face when I inhale through my nose without the straps. Will this mask (ultra clear subframe) likely fit better, or do they have face skirts that are similar in size? Im 6, 215 pounds. Or, is buying a mask on-line without trying on not a smart idea? Im leaving 7/25 for a trip. Thanks.

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Michael, the other Atomic mask you are asking about will have the same style fit as the Venom. If you would like to return it for either exchange or refund please feel free to give us a call at 1.800.347.2822.

  • Kenglin:

    Hi, is there a size options? How do I know whether it will fit? Lim

    Bill  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    This mask comes in a small/medium or medium/large. The medium/large fits just about everyone. The smaller one is for very small or narrow faces. As long as the item is not used in the water you have 60 days to refund or exchange it.

Atomic SubFrame ARC

The strongest and most indestructible two-window mask ever
The Atomic Aquatics SubFrame Mask is so durable, it carries a Lifetime warranty against frame breakage. The strength comes from the internal frame (subframe) molded directly beneath the surface of the silicone rubber skirt (patent pending). This subframe provides incredible strength and rigidity as well as eliminating the bulky external plastic frame in other masks. A stainless steel retainer locks the lenses in place and provides added strength to the nose bridge area of the mask. A wide field of view and great fit completes the combination of function, style and durability. (US Patent #7,181,778)

Anti-Reflective Coatings

ARC Lens Technology Elevates UltraClear To A Higher Level
Atomic Aquatics developed ARC (Anti-Reflective Coating) technology to reduce reflected light and actually increase the amount of available light transmitted to a diver’s eyes. The result is a greatly improved transmission of 98% of available light, compared to a loss of more than 14% of light with standard green 'float' glass used on the majority of masks on the market.

What is ARC lens technology?
Anti-Reflective Coatings or “ARC” is a multi-layer metal oxide coating process applied to both sides of the UltraClear lenses. This allows more light to enter the mask by reducing light reflections off the inside and outside surface of the lens. The metal oxide coating is only a few microns thick.

Why do you need ARC technology lenses?
Between 4-14% of light can be reflected back or “lost” by the standard “green float glass” mask lenses used by our competition. ARC technology lenses are especially important for SCUBA divers underwater, where available light is quickly absorbed by the surrounding water.

What is the underwater benefit of ARC for divers?
• Clearer, crisper vision. You will see more clearly underwater and objects in the distance will become more defined and acute.
• Increased contrast and clarity.
• Reduces eyestrain, glare, and prevents ghost images on the viewing area of the lens.
• An absolute must for night diving, limited visibility conditions, and underwater photographers.

Atomic Ultraclear SubFrame ARC Technology mask

Touted as the strongest and most indestructible mask ever designed, Atomic Aquatics is backing that up with a Lifetime Warranty against frame breakage. The mask gets its strength from the internal frame (subframe) that is molded directly beneath the surface of the silicone rubber skirt. This subframe provides incredible strength and rigidity with the use of 316 stainless steel in the support as well as eliminating the bulky external plastic frame found in other masks. A stainless steel retainer locks the lenses in place and provides added strength to the nose bridge area of the mask. A wide field of view and great fit completes the combination of function, style and durability.

In following with their well deserved reputation for innovation and product quality, Atomic adds to this mask the impressive ULTRACLEAR lenses. Sure to become the standard in quality for dive masks the ULTRACLEAR lenses are made for Atomic by one of the highest quality glass companies in the World. This higher quality glass is free from impurities and delivers a much clearer field of vision free from discoloration or distortion. As if this wasn’t enough, Atomic Aquatics developed ARC (Anti-Reflective Coating) technology to reduce reflected light and actually increase the amount of available light transmitted to a diver’s eyes. The result is a greatly improved transmission of 98% of available light. Between 4-14% of light can be reflected back or “lost” by the standard “green float glass” mask lenses used by our competition. ARC technology lenses are especially important for SCUBA divers underwater, where available light is quickly absorbed by the surrounding water.

According to Melinda Herndon, an instructor for eScuba.com “This mask will quickly become an absolute must for night diving, limited visibility conditions, and underwater photographers. With clearer, crisper vision and increased contrast and clarity the diver will see more clearly underwater and objects in the distance will become more defined and acute.” Once again, it appears Atomic Aquatics has used innovation and quality design to change for the better they way divers experience the aquatic realms.
