Scubapro Air 2 - 5th generation
The new Scubapro Air 2 is the latest model of the Scubapro inflator-octopus combination that has been thrilling the diving scene for over 3 decades, a Scubapro alternative air supply that fits on every Scubapro jacket, such as the high-quality Scubapro Hydros Pro Jacket or the legendary Scubapro X-Force BCD which you can find in our online shop for diving equipment.
The first model of the Scubapro alternative air supply Scubapro Air 2 was a revolution, and the now fifth generation Scubapro Air 2 is a technical marvel.
The most ingenious innovation on the 5th generation Scubapro Air 2 is the incredible breathing comfort. The breathing resistance of the latest Scubapro Air 2 model has been more than halved compared to the previous model, from 3.55 J / l to an incredible 1.34 J / l, which means that the new Scubapro Air 2 Octopus / Inflator is more comfortable to breathe then quite a few of the well-known 2nd stages for regulators. The breathing resistance of the Scubapro Air 2 5th generation is even better than the latest EN250: 2014 standard. This very pleasant breathing comfort of the new Scubapro Air 2 5th generation is very important, especially in stressful situations underwater, in order to prevent panic and hyperventilation. Also noteworthy is the fact that the breathing performance of the Scubapro Air 2 always remains the same regardless of the pressure.
Another improvement that can be seen in the Scubapro Air 2 5th generation are the enlarged and better placed inflator buttons, which allow a diver with thick gloves to easily inflate and deflate the jacket. The inflate button of the Scubapro Air 2 Inflator with Octopus is equipped with a better lever to minimize the effort required to inflate the BC.
Another new feature of the new Scubapro Air 2 Octopus / Inflator is the practical Dive / Pre Dive switch.
The mouthpiece of the new Scubapro Air 2 Octopuss 5th generation, which is now equipped with large bite tabs, ensures a better and more secure hold, even in an emergency.
The purge button of the Scubapro Air 2 Octopus has also been optimized, and is now even easier to find and even more flexible, so that it can still be operated without problems even with thick neoprene gloves.
All in all, the new Scubapro Air 2 exceeds all expectations that one can have on an octopus / inflator combination, because it combines a high-performance octopus with a perfectly functioning inflator, scores in every Octopus test and convinces every diver who likes to use multifunctionality to have as few hoses as possible on his diving equipment.
You can of course also find other high-quality octopuses such as the Scubapro R195 or the Scubapro R095 in our online dive shop, and also complete professional regulators and buoyancy compensators.
