The Scubapro regulator MK19 EVO / G260 with octopus R105
The MK19 EVO G260 R105 regulator, available in our online shop for diving equipment also as MK19 EVO G260 R105 complete regulator system incl. finimeter, inflator hose and regulator bag, is a robust and very high quality Scubapro regulator, very popular for its classic design, but also for the reliable operation and excellent freezing protection.
This professional Regulator consists of the innovative, diaphragm-controlled 1st stage MK19 EVO, the classical 1nd stage G260 with adjustable breathing resistance and VIVA Lever and the new and compact Octopus R105.
The Scubapro 1st stage MK19 EVO
100% freezing resistant 1st stage
The Scubapro MK19 EVO is an air-balanced, membrane-controlled high-performance stage, which is perfectly armed against very low temperatures with special cold-water technology. The MK19 EVO uses the patented AF anti-freeze protection, which is created by attaching a series of deflectors to the chrome-plated brass housing of the 1st stages, the surface of which acts as a heat dissipater. This means that the his stage does not freeze, not even in very cold water.
In addition, it has an environmentally sealed system, a dry balance chamber that prevents water and pollution from getting in contact with the inner mechanism. Thus you have no dirt getting inside the 1st stage of your regulator, and, what's even more important for deep and cold dives, there is no chance for any ice crystals to develop on or around the main spring, even in extremely cold water.
Innovative design and outstanding work of breathing
Like the MK17 EVO, the MK19 EVO also scores with significantly improved breathing performance thanks to the optimized internal design, which ensures a higher air flow to the medium pressure ports. Also a novelty are the 5 and not only 4 high-flow ports, which are attached to a practical swivel turret.
All in one, you have here a solid and compact 1st stage, with a cover that reminds of the MK17 EVO 1st stage and with a non-slip and robust handwheel in the DIN Version, capable of demanding dives under harsch conditions.
The 2nd stage Scubapro G260
The Scubapro G260 is a revival of the legendary G250 2nd stage, which is one of the most copied 2nd stages of diving history.
Nostalgic look but modern interior
The new G260, like the G250, impresses with reliability, longevity, good airflow in every diving situation, enhanced with modern technology and improved materials. It also has excellent cold water properties.
Although the membrane and the purge button are still pretty large, the case of the G260 is smaller compared to the G250. It also has less weight than the previous model, thanks to more modern materials that are lighter, yet shatterproof and saltwater resistant. The valve insert of is made of metal, just as well as the front ring with improved thread.
Excellent breathing sensitivity in every diving situation
The new flow-optimized demand lever also improves the airflow of the Scubapro G260 compared to the G250, allowing you to breathe easily thanks to the air-balanced valve technology that reduces the breathing resistance to the lowest possible level. The exhaust tee of the Scubapro A700 2nd stage keeps the air bubbles out of the diver's face.
With changing dive depth, effort, personal need or water condition the diver can easily adjust the inhalation effort even during the dive by turning the inhalation effort knob which fine-tunes the air delivery performance of the Scubapro G260 second stage.
No accidental free flow anymore
The G260 2nd stage is also equipped with a practical (VIVA) Dive / Predive switch to avoid free flow when jumping into the water. It is easy to assemble and disassemble and can be mounted on the right or left side of the hose.
Scubapro Octopus R105
The Scubapro R105 Octopus is a robust and comfortable cctopus for diving regulators, which you can find in our online dive shop in many high-quality Scubapro regulators such as the Scubapro MK17 EVO S600 R105 or the Scubapro MK19 EVO BT G260 Carbon R105, an emergency second stage from the family of the well-known alternate air supplies Scubapro R195 or Scubapro S270, which convince with similar good performance.
Reliable operation and pleasant breathing comfort
The classic downstream valve built into the Octopus R105 guarantees safe and reliable operation and also supplies very pleasant breathing comfort. The high-quality Super-Flow hose with a larger-than-average opening and, last but not least, the Hi-Flow mouthpiece also contribute to the significantly improved airflow of this alternate air supply.
This Scubapro octopus is also equipped with a VIVA DIVE/PRE-DIVE lever to prevent accidental free-flow in the water.
Robust and practical alternative air supply
Built from a very light and durable plastic and equipped with a metal valve housing, the R105 makes a very robust impression and is suitable for more demanding underwater operations while remaining very light and compact.
Fits any Scubapro regulator
This Scubapro Octopus can of course be fitted to any Scubapro 1 stage, and the medium pressure hose can be attached to either side of the R105, making this 2nd stage very practical for sidemounts, pony or deco tanks.
