The Mares Dual 15x regulator with Octopus Dual
The Dual 15x with Octopus Dual is a high-quality Mares regulator from the new generation of "X" 1st stages, which also includes special favourites such as the indestructible Mares Atlas 62X or the particularly powerful Mares Epic ADJ 82X.
The Mares 15X 1st stage
Lightweight 1st stage for entry-level regulators
The 15X is the new Mares 1st stage for every diver. Lightweight, durable and practical, it is ideal as a first stage for diving schools, as a first stage for travel regulators or as a second first stage for a Mares cold water configuration.
The Mares 15X is equipped with 4 medium pressure ports and 2 high pressure ports, which are very cleverly positioned to allow flexible and individual assembly of the Mares Regulator.
Robust construction ensures durability
What makes this 1st stage so particularly robust is the innovative ACT Valve Advanced Coating Technology. This revolutionary valve in the new Mares "x" stages increases the service life by up to 600%, even if the regulator is exposed to extreme diving conditions. This means that even after many years and numerous dives, you can still rely on your Mares regulator working perfectly with your Mares 15X 1st stage.
As with older Mares 1st stages, the 15X also features the patented dynamic flow control, the Mares DFC technology, which minimises the drop in medium pressure during inhalation and thus stabilises the air delivery rate. The positive influence of the DFC is particularly noticeable in the Mares 15X 1st stage at great depths or heavy breathing.
Light and compact stage, suitable for travelling
The compact dimensions and low weight make the Mares 15X a very popular first stage for travelling regulators and lightweight regulators for students, children or as a spare regulator.
The Mares Dual 2nd stage
The Dual is a lightweight, compact and modern Mares 2nd stage that impresses with its good air delivery performance and robust design, also available as 2nd stage with adjustable breathing resistance Dual ADJ.
PAD technology promises consistently good air delivery performance
This is a compensated 2nd stage equipped with Mares PAD technology, Pneumatically Assisted Design, which ensures good air delivery performance in every diving situation.
This Mares 2nd stage is very light and compact thanks to Ultralight Technopolymer, which is extremely abrasion and salt water resistant.
Very comfortable breathing resistance
The breathing resistance of the Dual is close to natural breathing thanks to the patented VAD system vortex support that ensures a constant air flow at any depth. The built-in hydrodynamic reflector inside the 2nd stage ensures that the air from the VAD bypass tube is delivered directly into the mouthpiece, guaranteeing the diver a consistently easy inhalation.
High quality Superflex hose
The Mares Dual is equipped with a lightweight and flexible 75cm Superflex hose, which guarantees you maximum freedom of movement and no tension or strains in your neck and jaw muscles, even in strong currents or on long dives.
Mares Octopus Dual
Lightweight and robust second stage
The Dual Octopus is a modified version of the Dual 2nd stage, a lighter, more compact and modern Mares Octopus, with good air delivery performance and robust construction.
The Octopus is made of very light and unbreakable Ultralight technopolymer, which is extremely abrasion and salt water resistant.
Patented technology leads to very good breathing comfort
The breathing resistance of this alternative air supply impresses with excellent values, as the Octopus is equipped with the same patented VAD technology as all Dual 2.stages. The VAD system vortex support with built-in hydrodynamic reflector ensures a constant air supply at any depth.
The Dual Octopus is also available as an Octopus with adjustable breathing resistance, in the Dual ADJ version.
High visibility thanks to high-quality, yellow Superflex hose and yellow purge button
As an Octopus, the Dual 2nd stage is also equipped with the high-quality Superflex hose to guarantee maximum freedom of movement when diving, but in this version in bright yellow for good visibility. For the same reason, the large, easy-to-operate purge button is also designed in highly visible yellow.
