Scubapro Regulator MK25EVO Black Tech / A700 Carbon Black Tech with Octopus R195
This Scubapro regulator is a high-end regulator system consisting of the MK25 EVO, in this version as Black Tech 1st stage, with the A700 Carbon 2nd stage, the 2nd stage with the best breathing comfort in its class, a powerful 2nd stage that you know in ist uncoated hand-forged full metal version from classics such as the MK17 EVO A700 professional regulator, and the light and compact R195 octopus, an absolute gem that sets new standards in terms of performance, quality and design.
Even more rugged thanks to Black Tech coating
The black colour of the Scubapro Black Tech regulator is not just a matter of design, but all metal components of this regulator have been coated with a special Black Tech coating that is scratch, corrosion and salt water resistant. This coating consists of an inner layer of nickel, and a top layer of shiny, diamond-like carbon coating, making this Scubapro Black Tech regulator virtually indestructible, making it perfect for demanding dives, i.e. as a regulator for technical diving or regulator for ice diving.
The Scubapro 1st stage MK25 EVO Black Tech
The MK25 EVO, also in its classic version without Black Tech coating, is a very robust, balanced, piston-controlled 1st stage that provides you with a constantly good airflow at any depth, at any breathing rate and even at low tank pressure, thanks to the innovative air-balanced flow piston.
Freezing resistant 1st stage thanks to innovative XTIS technology
The new MK25 EVO Black Tech is equipped with the revolutionary XTIS technology, the Extended Thermal Insulating System technology, with which Scubapro opens a new era in cold water protection technology. Thanks to this technology, this first stage has CE certification according to the latest European standard EN 250A for all diving conditions, even for use in very cold water. The MK25 EVO has up to 30% better cold water resistance than all previous models - ice diving, deep diving, technical diving - with the new Scubapro EVO 1.stages this is no longer a problem. Because the mechanical components of the Scubapro EVO 1.stages are completely insulated thanks to the new XTIS technology, and the additional fins increase the heat exchange in cold water. In addition, an anti-frost cap provides even more thermal insulation.
Sophisticated design for variable configurations
The 2 high-pressure ports of the MK25 EVO BT are placed on both sides, which allows variable mounting of the 1st stage (facing up or down). This stage offers no less than five LP ports, which are placed on a 360° rotatable swivel head to allow you absolute creative freedom in assemblying your hose configuration. One of the 5 ports is a high-performance, axial ND outlet.
Many practical features
But this Scubapro 1st stage has much more to offer, such as a replaceable valve seat or externally adjustable intermediate pressure.
Designed for very demanding dives
The special feature of the 1st stage MK25 EVO Black Tech is the new design in elegant black, matching the black carbon 2nd stage A700. But, as already mentioned, this black coating is not only for aesthetic reasons, it is also extremely scratch-resistant and durable to withstand even more stress during very demanding dives.
The Scubapro 2nd stage A700 Carbon Black Tech
Test winner regulator A700 Black Tech
With an unsurpassed work of breathing of only 0.49 J /l, a breathing performance that remains consistently good in any water and at any depth, the A700 Black Tech is among the world's elite 2nd stages and clearly the best in its class.
An freezing resistant regulator that will join you for decades
The A700 Carbon Black Tech is a hand-forged full-metal construction, with a full carbon fibre coating that is extremely durable and scratch resistant, built to last a diver a lifetime. This carbon fibre coated metal housing, together with all the other components of this Scubapro 2nd stage, guarantee optimal thermal exchange and prevent freezing in very cold waters. The carbon fibre cover ensures durability and unique resistance.
Excellent breathing comfort
This Scubapro 2nd stage is so easy to breathe that you might forget that you breathe through a regulator at all, because the air-balanced valve technology brings the breathing resistance to the lowest possible level. The breathing resistance is steplessly adjustable, and the VIVA setting has also been significantly improved so that the diver can easily adjust the inhalation resistance.
The exhalation effort of this Scubapro 2nd stage is also incredibly low, as the exhaust valve has an improved airflow to allow air to escape more easily and stay away from the diver's face.
The elegant and irresistible black design of the Scubapro A700 Carbon Black Tech makes this regulator a true collector's item.
The Scubapro Octopus R195
Compact Octopus with pleasant breathing comfort
The alternative air supply Scubapro R195 is very light and compact and is equipped with a classic downstream valve that guarantees safe and reliable operation. The R195 is not only popular for its comfortable breathing, but also for its compact size and light weight, as it is made from a very durable yet very light plastic.
Fits any Scubapro regulator
This Scubapro Octopus can of course be fitted to any Scubapro 1 stage, and the medium pressure hose can be fitted to either side of the R195.
Comfortable and practical alternate air supply
The mouthpiece of the R195 ensures relaxed neck and jaw muscles even during Long dives or in strong currents thanks to the very comfortable orthodontic shape developed together with dentists and dental laboratories.
Equipped with the luxury of an adjustable VIVA lever and an easy-to-operate purge button, with a constant, comfortable air delivery, the R195 is a reliable air supply for emergency diving situations.
