Our lovely friends from Art Hookah opened their first lounge in San Diego, California, and shortly after their opening they were already back at the drawing board for a new product. Their first product, the Art Hookah, caught fire once it hit the market and helped create new visuals for smokers and added a new element of creativity within hookah. They've created hoses in the past to accompany their glass hookahs, but the Aviator Hose is cut from a different cloth. After a year of testing through hose prototypes with their team and customers at the lounge, they created the Aviator Hookah Hose. Think Leonardo not blue people, speaking of blue people this hose is available with the following handle colors options:
High Grade Silicone Materials
Here in the warehouse we come across many different styles of silicone hookah hoses and they all tend to have a particular touch to them, some would say rubbery. This has been the standard for most silicone hoses on the market, we've never had a problem with it and neither has the hookah community. But once again the Aviator hose was cut from a different cloth and it features a dark black matte hose tubing, with a neoprene texture. The tubing is crafted from a medical grade silicone like many other washable hoses, but the silicone goes through a beneficial platinum curing process. This creates a scientific marriage between silicone hydride and vinyl, thus creating a material with a higher tear strength and flexibility. So far we've blasted these hoses with coffee shisha, floral shisha, and sweet flavors (not to mention cane mint), without having any ghosted hoses. The high quality silicone fights flavors from latching onto the interior tubing, and with a quick rinse using water the hose is like new again.
The Aviator features a medium sized gauge opening that allows for a comfortable inhale, especially with hookahs that have a large downstem opening. Using a hose as flexible as this one can cause pinches in airflow because of its elasticity, but the Art Hookah teams provides you with a anti-kink spring. This silver coil spring can be removed if not needed but we've enjoyed having it on while in use, and it doesn't get in the way of us passing the hose, in fact it makes it a little easier.
Does It At Least Do Any Tricks?
No. If you've used silicone hookah hoses in the past then you've experienced the small dust and dirt particles sticking to the rubbery exterior of your hose. The smooth vinyl/neoprene hybrid exterior of the Aviator is not affected by this so easily, our hose is currently sitting on a concrete floor but we know it will survive. When you're ready for the next level of silicone hoses, the Aviator should be at the top of your list.
