SCUBAPRO announce new D420 regulator

The D420 – exceptional breathing performance and innovative design

Combining the iconic design of the original D-Series regulators with the latest advances in breathing performance technology, SCUBAPRO engineers have created a 21st century regulator in terms of quality, reliability, performance and style.

The new D420 features a brand new balanced valve inside a housing supported by a full metal structure. Called the Progressive Flow Control Valve, it is able to deliver abundant airflow for the best breathing performance, with a natural smoothness comparable to what you might experience breathing on the surface. The uniquely shaped fiberglass-reinforced nylon casing is ultra-durable and allows the LP hose to be connected on either the right or left side for maximum rigging flexibility.

A new dive/pre-dive system includes a switch on the top of the casing with a thumb tab for adjusting the direction of airflow right out of the valve. The highly efficient purge button is a technical jewel based on a new concept that gives the D420 its unique face. Teamed with the venerable MK25 EVO balanced piston first stage, this is a regulator system purpose-designed for today’s avid divers and SCUBAPRO brand enthusiasts everywhere.

Features:

  • Uniquely shaped fiberglass-reinforced nylon casing carries on the D-Series heritage with the latest advances in breathing performance technology.
  • Air-balanced Progressive Flow Control Valve is able to deliver abundant airflow with a natural smoothness comparable to breathing on the surface.
  • Dive/pre-dive system includes a switch on the top of the case with a thumb tab for adjusting the direction of airflow right out of the valve.
  • Casing design features inner winglets that direct airflow towards the exhaust valve, creating a dramatic improvement in exhalation effort.
  • Diaphragm is located in the lower section of the casing to take advantage of the pressure gradient in the upright position, making breathing even easier.
  • Reversible hose attachment allows for either left- or right-side LP hose connections for maximum rigging flexibility.
  • Large purge button is easy to reach and press, with or without gloves.
  • Exhaust tee is compact and efficiently deflects bubbles from the diver’s view while enhancing ease of exhalation.
  • Super-flow hose features an oversized bore that allows more air to flow on each inhalation.
  • Compact Hi-Flow mouthpiece improves airflow as well as mouth comfort, fitting all mouth sizes, from largest to smallest.
  • CE certified according the latest EN250A European Standards for all diving conditions, including extreme cold water.
  • Weight (without mouthpiece): 216g.
  • Airflow at 200bar: 1800 l/min – 64 SCFM.

Combinations:

Currently available as MK25 EVO/D420, DIN or INT version, with R195 as Octopus-Set. More combinations will follow.

Price:

  • MK25 EVO/D420 Set: £695
  • MK25 EVO/D420 R195 Octopus Set: £830

Dream Dive Locker Build Out. Part I: Demolition (Watch Video)

Published

on

It’s finally here! Time to start building the greatest dive locker the world has ever seen! Part I: Demolition! #dreamdivelocker

This is the first of a series of videos showing the evolution of building out my dream dive locker. My dream dive locker needs to be dive gear drying and storage, dry storage, workshop, office, editing suite, You Tube studio and classroom. That’s a lot of functions for a small space!

The first step is planning out the space and demolishing the laminate flooring. Then I taped up the walls to get a feel for the space. We have a lot of work to do!

But finally we will have a purpose built space to house all of our dive equipment! Subscribe to our channel to follow our progress! 

Thanks for watching, Team!
