The WTX and WTX-D Series is a selection of harnesses, buoyancy cells and accessories which offer unparalleled versatility due to the modular nature of the whole system. Each component can be configured into a highly technical rig for those trained to push the limits, or scaled down to make a travel friendly set up suitable for any diver.
The backbone of any system - this cleverly designed back plate can be used with the Apeks Deluxe One-piece Webbed Harness, or inserted directly into the WTX Harness. It is available both in stainless steel and aluminium.
Offered in either 304 stainless steel or 6061 anodized aluminum alloy.
The stainless steel weighs 4.7 lbs (2.15 kg).
The aluminum weighs 1.7lbs (780g).
4 each upper and lower slots accommodate nylon cylinder bands so a single cylinder can be strapped directly to the plate. Having a series of 4 slots provides lateral stability of the cylinder that traditional 2 slot plates cannot.
3 holes at the top of the plate offer a range of height adjustments for the buoyancy cells and the cylinders. In addition, a corresponding lower centre slot allows for lower band bolts that are misaligned.
2” wide crotch strap slot.
Upper and lower perimeter holes along either side and holes along the bottom allow for the mounting of accessories.
Both offer an electro-plate finish and a laser-etched Apeks logo to enhance the look of the plate.
