SCUBAPRO MK19 EVO/G260 – The new Cold Water Regulator Kit

Published

on

New from Scubapro – The MK19 EVO was designed to be the ultimate first stage for cold water or contaminated diving conditions, its design makes it substantially smaller and lighter than the original MK19. The air-balanced diaphragm delivers consistent and effortless airflow, regardless of depth, tank pressure, or breathing rate. An environmentally sealed system prevents water and pollutants from fouling the inner mechanism. Its dry chamber is equipped with a double spring, making it more compact and reliable.

Two opposing high-pressure ports allow the first stage to be positioned either up or down, plus provide for an optimum hose/transmitter layout.

Swivel turret comes with four High-Flow LP ports plus one axial Super High-Flow LP port to maximise hose routing options. With its compact size, light weight, and superb breathing performance it continues the best Scubapro regulator tradition.

It is the ideal first stage for recreational, technical, professional, and military divers.

The G260 is the optimal combination for the cold-water set, as it has numerous components made of seawater-resistant solid brass, which ensure excellent heat exchange and thus optimise the cold-water property. The air-balanced valve smoothes out the inhalation effort at varying depths and supply pressures, the super-flow hose features an oversized bore that allows more air to flow on each inhalation. The High-flow exhaust valve reduces exhalation for better overall breathing comfort. Its nylon fiberglass design features Scubapro’s biggest second stage casing and diaphragm for the ultimate in breathing sensitivity, regardless of position in the water.  A diver-adjustable inhalation effort knob fine-tunes air delivery to suit changing depths water conditions and personal tastes. A reversible hose attachment allows to easily adjust hose routing for tech diving configurations.

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.
