SCUBAPRO announce Hydros X BCD

Published

on

Hydros X – A breakthrough in design and comfort…

The Hydros X is the world’s first front-adjustable BCD to offer a fully injection moulded Monprene® thermoplastic shoulders and back pad. This unique feature allows the shoulders to conform to your body like a tailored fit, creating superior comfort.

Add the full-sized backpack and stainless-steel Super Cinch tank band and you also get excellent stability both on the surface and at depth. The bladder, made out of EndurTex high-tenacity nylon fabric, is extremely lightweight and durable while offering generous lift capacity, aided by lower back bellows.

In the event of damage, several components on the Hydros X are detachable and easily replaceable. Its flat-buckled quick-release integrated weight system and rear trim weight pockets work together to offer a more comfortable and balanced ride during your dive. The two big zippered cargo pockets offer great gear-carrying capacity and are easily accessible even when the weight pouches are fully loaded. Two stainless steel D-rings provide clip-on points for additional gear. In addition, the Hydros X features a Multi-Mount Accessory Matrix with multiple D-Ring and mounting points that easily attach various dive accessories.

Features

  • Hydros X is based on the same modular Monprene® shoulders and back pad design made popular by the Hydros Pro back-inflation BCD.
  • EndurTex high-tenacity 420 nylon fabric bladder is lightweight yet extremely durable.
  • Monprene® thermoplastic shoulders and back pad are extremely resistant to UV, chemicals and abrasion, plus don’t absorb water to minimize drying time.
  • Rotating quick-release shoulder buckles allow you to route your shoulder straps to optimise fit.
  • Super Cinch tank buckle system locks the tank in solid for maximum stability at depth.
  • Integrated front weight system is based on the same Monprene® pockets found on the Hydros Pro.
  • Two rear trim pouches help create a comfortable swimming position.
  • Two big zippered cargo pockets offer great gear-carrying capacity and are easily accessible even when the weight pouches are fully loaded.
  • Two stainless steel D-rings provide clip-on points for additional gear.
  • Includes Multi-Mount Accessory Matrix with multiple D-rings and mounting points that easily attach various dive accessories.
  • With Balanced Power Inflator.

Options available:

  • 9 colour Kits for personalisation (Army Green, Black, White, Blue, Turquoise, Orange, Yellow, Pink, and Purple).

Price:

  • RRP £699
