MARES Dual ADJ 62X – Introducing the Dive Industry’s smallest first stage

Published

on

Mares continues to prove to be an industry leader in regulator technology and design with the release of the Dual Adj 62X.

Created to satisfy ongoing requests from the US and Asian markets, the Dual Adj 62X is now the smallest, most compact first stage ever released by Mares. Now the most lightweight regulator in the Mares line-up, the Dual Adj 62X is the perfect traveling diver’s companion worldwide.

The 62X first stage breaks records as the smallest first stage in the diving market, coming in at a mere 63mm in height and weighing only 464g (DIN). This small-but-mighty first stage is 10% smaller and lighter than its 52X predecessor and has 30% less volume. The 62X first stage may be compact, but it still boasts all of Mares regulators’ innovative features, such as Auto Sealing Technology (AST) which protects against water entering the first stage.

Mares, however, didn’t stop here. The core parts of the 62X were re-designed to generate an even better seal, making this an excellent regulator for cold water diving. The addition of the optional Twin Balanced Piston (TBP), makes this one of the highest performing regulators in cold water.

Specific technical innovations of this first stage’s internal workings include a new poppet seat that is now sharper with a smaller cone radius and decreased angle to define the sealing surface better. The lightweight Dual Adj second stage offers smooth, easy breathing at all depths. Enhanced with a pneumatically assisted design (P.A.D.) and the unique, Mares patented Vortex Assisted Design (VAD) systems, the Dual Adj is second to none in ease of air delivery. The newly designed adjustable breathing knob helps divers enjoy a customized breathing experience, even when wearing thick gloves.

True to the Mares brand, the Dual Adj 62X goes above and beyond all performance tests and will impress even the most seasoned diver. It exceeds performance standards at 200m and uses proven technology at 400m. This highly developed regulator system offers high performance at a very competitive price while still providing all the features needed by today’s demanding divers.

SCUBAPRO introduces the Seawing Supernova

Published

on

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.
