The Fourth Element Ellipse Dry Glove System is a simple, reliable and ergonomic system designed to provide an easy solution for dry gloves.
This system was designed by Fourth Element and manufactured by Si-Tech so the quality and precision is guaranteed to be excellent. The Ellipse system is designed to work with the PU rings glued into Argonaut drysuits for silicone seals but can also be used to replace the QCS Oval system on the Argonaut or any other drysuit.
The ergonomic elliptical shape offers a slimmer profile whilst still allowing a larger hand to pass through. Aligning the glove and suit rings is made easier by an intuitive key system; the gloves are attached by pressing the rings together.
A robust nitrile O-ring provides a reliable seal for the gloves which will stay secured throughout the dive. Removing the gloves is a simple process, using the heel of your hand pop off one side of the glove ring to break the seal.
When not using dry gloves, the O-ring should be removed using the supplied O-ring tool and replaced with the silicone band to protect the O-ring groove.
The branded case can be used to keep dry gloves in after the rings have been fitted. Installation instructions are included in the packaging.
Available options are:
- System - This is the complete Ellipse set, used to upgrade an existing suit that has QCS oval already fitted, enabling dry gloves to be used.
- Suit Rings - Supplied without silicone seals, this option is used to convert an existing suit which has QCS oval already fitted.
- Dry Glove Attachment - These are the parts of the system required in order to add to a suit already fitted with Ellipse Suit Rings.
