The OB1 freediving belt is a game-changer in the world of diving. After 40 years without innovation in the design of diving belts, the OB1 belt has been reinvented with ergonomics, comfort, and safety in mind. Handmade in France using sustainable manufacturing methods, the OB1 belt is designed to be comfortable and safe for divers of all levels.
“The OB1 Freediving Belt: A Game-Changer in the World of Diving”
One of the key features of the OB1 belt is its quick-release feature. This allows divers to release the belt in just one second, with one hand, eliminating the risk of the belt getting stuck. This makes it the safest diving belt on the market. The OB1 belt is also designed to be lightweight, allowing divers to move and bend freely while diving. Additionally, the belt features a “sharkskin” finish on the rubber, which prevents it from slipping on the chest when diving head-down.
Design and Materials
The origin of the brand’s name, OB1, is rooted in Japanese culture. In Japanese, “obi” means belt, and in traditional culture, it’s worn over kimonos, especially in martial arts. The color of the belt shows off the practitioner’s experience, with black being the top level. The OB1 belt, being black, represents the top level of diving belts.
The OB1 belt is made with high-quality materials, including rubber, stainless steel, nylon thread, and hook-and-loop tape. These materials have been chosen for their durability and proximity to the factories, as well as for their resistance to water. The belt is made to size, with different sizes available depending on the diver’s wetsuit thickness, amount of weight used, height, and weight.
Handmade in France
One of the best things about the OB1 belt is that it’s handmade in France. The belts are made one by one, by hand, in France, which guarantees top-quality finishes in each and every one of them. The manufacturing process is owned and controlled by the company, ensuring that all employees are treated fairly and working in good conditions, receiving a fair salary. All the components have been chosen according to environmental responsibility principles, and the belts are manufactured in France, not shipped from the other side of the world. All the steps are rigorously realized and verified to guarantee the best quality according to EU standards.
