Mares Atlas ADJ 62X TBP with Octopus Atlas ADJ
The Mares Atlas ADJ 62X with Octopus Atlas ADJ regulator is the brand new superstar from Mares, a full-metal Mares regulator, like the popular Mares Epic ADJ 82X PVD regulator, or the classic Mares Abyss Navy, powerful and freezing-resistant Mares regulators that guarantee optimal breathing performance under all diving conditions, even when diving in extremely cold water and therefore also suitable as a regulator for ice diving.
This regulator system consists of the reliable Atlas ADJ 62X TBP regulator with the matching Octopus Atlas ADJ.
The Mares 1st Stage 62X TBP
The Mares 62X 1st stage is a balanced, diaphragm-controlled 1st stage, robust and efficient, with a modern pearl chrome finish.
A Mares 1st stage that doesn't give up even in ice water
In addition to the other Mares regulators with a 62X 1st stage, this Atlas ADJ 62X regulator is equipped with the innovative TBP Dry Kit, a piston-controlled, double-balanced dry kit that completely prevents direct contact of the inner components of the 1st stage with the surrounding water , thus preventing freezing or contamination of the first stage.
Unbeatable breathing performance
The 62X offers excellent breathing comfort not only for the primary 2nd stage, but also for the octopus. This is due to the fact that this Mares 1st stage was provided with 4 DFC ports in order to offer constant and natural breathing resistance at any depth even for the alternate air source, as the DFC system (Dynamic Flow Control) minimizes low pressure decrease during inhalation.
The 4 LP ports and the slightly angled 2 HP ports have been carefully placed at a distance from each other to allow flexible and easy attachment of the hoses and / or transmitters to the 1st stage, thus enabling an individual configuration of the Mares regulator.
A robust 1st stage well protected against external influences
Like all other new Mares 1st stages with an “X” in their names there is an innovative ACT Valve inside the 62X 1st stage, a valve provided with Advanced Coating Technology, which leads to 600% more valve durability.
Of course, this new Mares 1st stage also offers the meanwhile very popular AST - Auto Sealing Technology, which means that the 1st stages automatically seal themselves as soon as they are removed from the dive tank in order to avoid accidental water ingress.
The Marea Atlas ADJ 2nd Stage
Robust full-metal stage with improved breathing comfort
The new Mares Atlas ADJ is a very robust second stage, thanks to the full-metal construction, which grants it exceptional durability but also absolute resistance against freezing. It is a compensated 2nd stage, equipped with the Mares PAD technology, Pneumatically Assisted Design, which ensures a lower spring tension thus significantly increasing the breathing comfort.
Constant breathing performance in every depth
Breathing through an Atlas ADJ feels like natural breathing thanks to the patented VAD system, vortex support, which ensures a constant flow of air at every depth. The built-in hydrodynamic reflector ensures that the air from the VAD bypass tube is delivered directly to the mouthpiece, and guarantees the diver a constant, easy inhalation. In order to consider the individual needs of every diver, it also offers steplessly adjustable breathing resistance.
Robust materials, clever structure
The purge button is also made of robust metal, is large and pivotable, and can therefore be operated easily in any position and even with thick gloves.
The Atlas ADJ 2nd stage was equipped with a light and flexible 75cm Superflex hose, which guarantees you maximum freedom of movement and no tension or strain in the neck or jaw muscles, even in strong currents or long dives.
Mares Atlas ADJ Octopus
Pneumatically balanced 2nd stage
The Atlas ADJ alternate air supply, like the Atlas ADJ main 2nd stage, is a stage with pneumatically balanced downstream valve, an all-metal stage made of brass, nickel-plated and chrome-plated.
Adjustable breathing resistance
Not only the new main 2nd stages from Mares but also many alternate air supplies of the last generation, such as the Atlas ADJ or the Epic ADJ, are equipped with adjustable breathing resistance, which also explains the ADJ designation as "adjustable".
With patented VAD technology
The innovative Mares VAD - Vortex Assisted Design technology, which ensures excellent breathing comfort at great depths, can also be found on this octopus. Air flows through the bypass tube, 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.
With free-flow protection in strong currents or while submerging
To ensure that the Atlas ADJ octopus does not free-flow when submerging or in strong currents, it was equipped with the patented mesh grid in the purge button cover.
Good visibility thanks to a bright-yellow Superflex hose
Thia Mares Octopus comes with a yellow 75cm Superflex hose, which is much more durable than normal LP hoses and, moreover, with its flexibility gives you maximum freedom of movement when diving.
