The XTX 200 is the flagship of the Apeks regulator range. A cold water rated, fully balanced primary regulator with environmental seal.
The FSR first stage uses a balanced diaphragm design for high performance and air flow at any depth and cylinder pressure. Air is supplied via four low pressure and two high pressure ports configured in easy hose routing positions. Cold water protection is provided by using a dry environmental seal to prevent ice crystal forming on the main spring and critical components that could lead to a free flow. The seal also provides contamination and chemical damage protection for soft material parts such as o-rings and the diaphragm.
The design changes from the previous T2 models have been scrutinised to shave off as much weight as possible to make the regulators one of the lightest full size, high performance regulators available. The A-Clamp frame in particular has seen huge weight reductions and is no longer a hindrance for travelling divers compared to DIN valves. The first and stage components are precisely machined from solid titanium billet. Even the comfort swivel is made of lightweight titanium rather than coated brass or steel.
The Mares Carbon 52 regulator is a super lightweight reg made from carbon fibre that is perfect for any type of diving. The Mares Carbon 52 Reg uses carbon technology to prevent the dry mouth effect at the end of a dive and the NCC increases performance in cold water. This Mares regulator features the double DFC system that allows two divers to breathe at the same time which is totally unique.
The Atomic ST1 Regulator is a high quality beautifully crafted regulator that delivers outstanding performance and looks great. The 5 ported swivel turret 1st stage is machined from a unique 316 stainless steel, unlike conventional brass 1st stages, which performs better and is kinder to the environment.
The Mares 52 Abyss Reg is available with the compact top performer MR52 first stage:the best for a unique high calibre set up. Double DFC system provides a consistent flow of air at any depth, even when breathing simultaneously from both the primary second stage and the octopus. The NCC system and the design of the Abyss second stage with more metal on the front cover, allows this combination to achieve very high performance in cold water. Pre-oriented pressure ports for an ideal placement of hoses even using two independent regulators.
