Mares Epic ADJ Octopus
The Mare Epic ADJ Octopus is a Mare alternate air source for Mares regulators, a Mares Octopus that you can purchase individually or, for example, in combination with one of the high-performance Mares regulator of the latest generation such as the Mares Epic ADJ 82X PVD or the Mares Ultra ADJ 82X.
The Mares Epic ADJ Octopus is one of the most powerful Mares alternate air sources ever made as it does not lack any benefit of a primary Mares 2nd stage.
The Mares Octopus Epic ADJ, just like the Mares Epic ADJ 2nd stage, is a Mares 2nd stage with a pneumatically balanced downstream valve, a full metal stage, consisting of brass, nickel-plated and chrome-plated.
In the new series of Mares regulators, many 2nd stages and alternate air sources, and also the Mares Epic ADJ octopus, offer an adjustable breathing resistance, which explains the ADJ as "adjustable".
As we are used to from Mares, the Mares Epic ADJ octopus is also equipped with VAD - Vortex Assisted Design technology. Air flows through the bypass tube on the Mares Epic ADJ 2nd stage, creating a vortex with underpressure in its centre, which sucks in the membrane and causes the regulator to react even more sensitive to your breathing, significantly improving breathing comfort at every depth. But that alone is not enough - the new Mares Octopus Epic ADJ even offers you an improved VAD + option that gives you an extra breathing push in extreme diving situations. Thanks to the yellow marked Twin Power switch on the Mares Epic ADJ octopus, you can choose between VAD and VAD + at any time.
In order to prevent the free flow of the Mares Epic ADJ octopus at any depth, the purge button cover provides a patented mesh grid insert.
You’ll get the Mares Epic ADJ octopus equipped with a bright-yellow, 75cm Superflex hose, which is much more durable than normal LP hoses and, thanks to its flexibility, offers you maximum freedom of movement when diving.
In our online shop for diving equipment you will find the Mares Epic ADJ octopus individually or as an alternate air source for all Mares regulator sets of the new "X" generation, Mares Epic ADJ 82X PVD, Mares Ultra ADJ 82X, Mares Ultra 72X, Mares Fusion 72X and Mares Dual ADJ 52X.
