An octopus suitable to every need, but not for everyone! The Carbon octopus features the Mesh-Grid system and integrated VAD, which, combined with the Fluid Dynamic Deflector, ensures very easy and natural breathing. And it's all combined into a carbon second stage for increased thermal conductivity and incredible lightness. Advanced Carbon Technology makes the regulator lightweight. The exceptional mechanical resistance and extraordinary lightweight make the carbon material perfect for meeting the needs of the most demanding divers. In addition, the high thermal conductivity guarantees natural breathing, reducing troublesome dry mouth.
The patented mesh design of the second stage cover reduces the pressure of water flowing onto the regulators diaphragm and minimizes free-flow. Even in a strong current it eliminates the need for a knob to de-tune your air delivery system- advance technology through basic physics. All Mares second stages are a reliable downstream valve design and offer the unique patented Vortex Assisted Design (VAD) system. The air bypass tube conveys air to the mouthpiece creating a swirling vortex with a low-pressure area in the center that keeps the diaphragm down during inhalation, for very sensitive and easy breathing at all depths.
Mares Carbon Octopus incorporates the Fluid Dynamic Deflector, developed after in-depth studies and tests of fluid dynamics, is engineered to receive and properly direct the airflow from the bypass tube to the mouthpiece. Combined with the VAD system it delivers very natural and effortless breathing. Mares developed the Superflex hose after many years of testing and research. The results achieved far surpassed the tests required by EN250. Hose is extremely light weight and exceptionally soft, guaranteeing the maximum freedom of movement and reducing jaw fatigue. Hi-Viz yellow purge cover for easy identification in an out-of-air situation, comes with a 39.4" (100 cm) Superflex hose for better comfort, and weighs 12.5 oz. (354 g) with hose. All current in line Mares Regulators are compatible up to 40% Oxygen (EAN 40) right out of the box.
