Mares announce the Atlas ADJ 62X



After many requests for an all-metal version of the tried-and-true Abyss second stage regulator, Mares is excited to announce the release of the Atlas ADJ 62X.

Mares’ engineers designed this regulator with the most extreme conditions in mind. The Atlas second stage’s all-metal design offers high thermo-conductivity, making this one of the best performing regulators for cold water diving. The robust, metal exterior is highly durable and designed to meet the requirements of the world’s most demanding dive environments.

The new Atlas second stage features the PAD system (Pneumatically Assisted Design), and the Mares patented VAD system (Vortex Assisted Design). This impressive combination allows for high airflow, delivering smooth, easy breathing at all depths and temperatures. Moreover, with no moving components inside the By-Pass, internal ice formation during cold water dives is never an issue.

Wearing thick gloves is also never a problem with the Atlas second stage as it features a newly designed wide pivoting purge button and a wide, longer breathing adjustment knob that are both easy to access. The Atlas also features a lightweight Superflex low-pressure hose which ensures advanced comfort during use.

Such an innovative second stage requires an equally advanced first stage. Mares paired the Atlas second stage with their top-selling and most reliable first stage, the 62X. This newly improved first stage will be Mares’ first recreational regulator to feature the Twin Balanced Piston (TBP). This combination is the ultimate solution for extreme cold water diving. Mares’ innovative Auto Sealing Technology (AST), which protects against water entering the first stage, and the natural DFC (Dynamic Flow Control), which guarantees elevated, consistent airflow, makes the 62X TBP a completely isolated unit. The ATLAS ADJ 62X is the industry’s best recreational regulator for cold water and deep diving use.

With the Atlas ADJ 62X, Mares continues to prove they are a leading force in diving regulator innovation. This new regulator is sure to become a staple amongst demanding divers and for cold water dives. With performance standards that exceed expectations at 200m and proven technology at 400m, the Atlas ADJ 62X is ready to live up to the high standards that divers have come to expect from Mares regulators.

SCUBAPRO introduces the Seawing Supernova



SCUBAPRO introduces the Seawing Supernova, a new diving fin designed to deliver maximum power when you need it.

Winner of the prestigious, internationally recognized Red Dot Award for product design, the Seawing Supernova is a remarkable step up from the Seawing Nova in performance, construction, fit and versatility, with an innovative blade shape that produces much more power, speed and manoeuvrability.

Power is key in a diving fin and the Seawing Supernova delivers. The fin’s proven Pivot Control Technology ensures the blade is pre-set in the 40º to 50º range, which is the optimal angle of attack for the blade and ideal for converting kicks into forward propulsion. This hinge system works in tandem with the blade’s unique flexible Auto-Adjust central panel which fine-tunes the angle of attack by counter-pivoting based on the strength of the kick. This provides a milder angle of attack for comfort when kicking gently, a more aggressive angle of attack when power kicking at full strength, and anything in between.  When it comes to frog and alternate kicks, new twin-tip winglets increase control and markedly improve manoeuvrability.

Made of premium Monprene® for maximum durability, the Seawing Supernova’s innovative two-piece design, with blade and foot pocket molded separately, disassembles easily for travel. Sold as an open heel set with foot pocket and blade pre-assembled, the Seawing Supernova’s open heel foot pocket features an upgraded heavy-duty bungee strap that allows for micro-adjustments to accommodate different boot types, and extended grip pads that provide an improved non-skid grip on wet surfaces.

The two-piece design also makes it possible to replace the standard open heel foot pocket with an optional full foot pocket for barefoot diving. Simply disassemble the fin’s Socket-Lock Connecting System, switch out the open heel foot pocket with a full foot pocket, reassemble and you’re ready to hit the water. The full foot pocket is also made of premium Monprene® and features a re-profiled heel-retention cup to prevent slipping and chafing.

A key fob-style multi-Tool is included for assembly and disassembly of the foot pocket and blade, along with a travel-friendly storage bag.

The new Seawing Supernova is the essential power fin for avid recreational and professional divers seeking maximum performance, speed and control in all diving conditions.
