The ultimate performance to value ratio, the A2 Regulator is a great performer at a great price. Both the 1st and 2nd stages are low-profile, durable and lightweight. It has one high pressure port and four low pressure ports to accommodate most hose arrangements. The 1st and 2nd stage designs are easy to maintain and service, and are known by divers and technicians worldwide. The first stage is manufactured from marine grade chrome plated brass and utilizes a non-balanced flow-by piston design and weighs 26 oz (737 g). An optional patented design that puts an end to flooded regulators without sacrificing performance! DVT is a revolutionary regulator technology designed to automatically prevent moisture and contaminants from entering your first stage, even if the dust cap is left off.
DVT (Dry Valve Technology) is one of the most significant innovations in regulator technology in recent history. DVT is a fully automatic valve that protects your first stage regulator's internal components against the harsh water environment in which we work and play; with no impact on the regulator's first-class performance.
DVT provides an "automatic extra layer of protection" from environmental contamination such as dirt, dust, sand, spray, dripping and pooled water, or even a "flash flood" in a rinse tank. DVT improves performance and reduces service costs associated with corrosion of critical internal components, bacteria, hose deterioration, and damaged gauges and computers.
AERIS regulators are exclusively designed using the latest 3-D computer modeling techniques. This allows us the ability to model and test performance while still in the early stages of development. The A2's second stage unique deflector vane and housing design diverts airflow from the valve directly to the mouthpiece, producing smooth venturi-assisted inhalation.
The A2's housing is made from an ABS/Polycarbonate composite blend of materials making the A2 both extremely rugged and lightweight, weighing 6 oz (170 g) and nearly neutrally buoyant underwater, reducing jaw fatigue on extended dives. The extremely lightweight cover ring is machined from a solid piece of aircraft aluminum, and then hard anodized, utilizing a unique process to prevent corrosion. To further reduce jaw fatigue, the A2 features a patented Orthodontic Mouthpiece, designed to accommodate the natural overbite of the human jaw. The A2 is classified as being suitable for use with nitrox breathing gas mixtures containing up to 40% oxygen by volume without the need for special preparation, cleaning or component parts. Like all Aeris regulators, the A2 comes with a 24 month limited warranty.
Due to MFG restrictions, this can be sold to the USA and Caribbean only.
This product has a limited warranty of 24 months.

Comments about Aeris A2 DVT Regulator:
I bought this to use as a regulator for my pony bottle. After testing on my first dive, I realized that it breathed easier than my primary reg. The only cons for me are that the 1st stage is heavy for use with a pony bottle. Other issue is that there is only 1 high pressure port, which is not a problem when used as a pony reg. I love that it's simple to use, without any adjustment controls.
