Mares Ultra 72X regulator
The Mares Ultra 72X regulator is a Mares regulator of the latest Mares generation, which also includes pieces of jewellery such as the Mares Epic ADJ 72X PVD or the Mares Fusion 72X, an innovative high-performance regulator which scores with excellent performance. The Mares Ultra 72X regulator has been tested on 200m where it met and exceeded the requirements of Norsok u-101, and on 400m where the technology still worked.
The Mares Ultra 72X regulator offers, for example, the proven Mares VAD technology, a Mares Twin Power switch or Mares DFC on all LP ports. But what catapults the Mares Ultra 72X into the regulator Olympus are the no less than 8 LP ports that you will find on the first stage, 4 horizontal and 4 vertical, a pioneering technology (patent pending), turning the Mares Ultra 72X regulator into a must-have for technical diving.
Mares 72X 1st stage
The Mares 72X first stage is a full metal Mares 1st stage made of solid brass, chrome-plated and nickel-plated, with pearl finishing. Even in the coldest water the Mares 72X 1st stage will not freeze because its outer surface has been enlarged with grooves to optimize heat exchange.
On the Mares 1st stage 72X you will find a total of 8 MD-ports, innovatively placed 4 vertically and 4 horizontally, for an unprecedented flexibility in hose routing and regulator configuration. All 8 LP ports are equipped with natural DFC. This is the proven Mares Dynamic Flow Control technology, which minimizes low pressure decrease during inhalation thus providing excellent breathing performance, even under extreme conditions.
The positioning of the HP ports is also new, because they are slightly tilted on the 72X 1st stage to improve the hose routing even more.
Another innovation in the Mares 72X 1st stage, and in all Mares 1st stages with the designation "X", is the ACT valve, provided with Advanced Coating Technology, which leads to 600% more valve durability.
Of course, the new Mares 1st stage 72X also offers the meanwhile very popular AST - Auto Sealing Technology, which means that the new Mares 1st stages automatically seal themselves as soon as they are removed from the dive tank in order to avoid accidental water ingress.
Mares Ultra 2nd stage
The Mares Ultra 2nd stage is an ultra-light Mares 2nd stage with a standard downstream valve, a robust Mares 2nd stage made of very light techno polymer, with a very large, pivoting purge button.
As we are used to from Mares, the Mares Ultra 2nd stage is also equipped with VAD - Vortex Assisted Design technology. Air flows through the bypass tube on the Mares Ultra 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 2nd stage Ultra even offers you an improved VAD + option that gives you an extra breathing push in extreme diving situations. Thanks to the Twin Power switch on the Mares Ultra 2nd stage, you can choose between VAD and VAD + at any time.
The Mares 2nd stage Ultra is equipped with a 75cm Superflex hose as standard, a LP-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 this high-end Mares regulator Ultra 72X optionally without octopus or with four different Mares octopuses that you can choose freely. Alternatively, you can find this powerful Mares regulator also as a Mares Ultra 72X regulator set including pressure gauge, regulator bag and inflator hose.
