Apeks Black Sapphire Regulator

<<  Back to the Regulator Page
RRP 32490  ฿

 

The Black Sapphire is a piece of Apeks diving history, a limited-edition anniversary regulator celebrating 40 years of technical excellence and precision-engineering. With new styling across both the first and second stages, the Black Sapphire features a precision-machined, aircraft grade anodised metal front cover, which retains the crafted machining marks created during its production. The first stage has a super-tough and luxurious Physical Vapour Deposition (PVD) coating and features five ports as standard to allow for flexible hose routing. The Black Sapphire is packed in a special anniversary reusable case, perfect for storing your kit.

Features & BenefitsSpecifications
 
 
  • Available in Yoke or DIN configuration.
  • Precision-machined and anodised metal front cover.
  • Luxury hard-wearing PVD finish on the first stage.
  • 5 ports with heat exchanger as standard.
  • Reversible second stage can be converted from a right-handed hose configuration to a left-handed hose configuration and can mount to either side of the first stage.
  • The carbon-coloured hose features a swivel joint on both the first and second stage for maximum comfort and range of movement.
  • Hydrostatic over-balancing first stage allows the medium pressure air in the hose to increase at a rate faster than ambient pressure, resulting in superior performance at depth.
  • Comes as standard with an environmental dry seal kit which keeps water and contaminants out as well as making the model more resistant to freezing.
  • Features the innovative Diver Changeable Exhaust (DCE) system allowing the diver to change from a large air exhaust to a smaller air exhaust. The larger exhaust provides the best exhaust bubble dispersion while the smaller exhaust is lightweight and compact. Both are included with the regulator.
  • A two-stage progressive dual purge to allow the diver to choose the flow rate of the purge.
  • The pneumatically balanced second stage has diver-adjustable controls that allow the diver to individually tailor the breathe of the regulator to meet his or her needs.
  • Suitable for cold water use (below 10c / 50F).
  • Supplied in a high quality anniversary case
