Mares Abyss 42 Metal Regulator Features

What's in the box: 1st Stage, 2nd Stage and LP Hose

Abyss has long been a staple name in high performance, coupled now with elite small first stage MR42T: the best for a unique high caliber set up The evolved design of Abyss second stage adds more metal on front cover and hose protector to achieve even further dependability in the most difficult diving conditions

The high performance MR42T first stage is combined with an all metal second stage, for minimum weight and size The all chrome plated marine brass first stage regulator is a balanced diaphragm design which is environmentally sealed The diaphragm membrane transmits the pressure changes to the internal mechanism eliminating the need for the surrounding water to enter the intricate mechanism The benefit of this type of first stage design is that none of the internal parts are exposed to contaminants such as salt, sand, chlorine or pool acids These environmental contaminants cause corrosion and mineral deposits to form on the internal mechanism deteriorating regulator performance

The Abyss 42 Metal uses Tri-Material Valve Technology This patented technology created to optimize performance, safety and reliability The valve is covered with a hard Polyurethane (PU) and the sealing surface is a layered with a soft PU for a perfect seal Tri-material (brass, soft PU and "heavy-duty" PU) reaches new levels of durability

Another unique feature of the first-stage is the Dynamic Flow Control (DFC) The DFC system minimizes the intermediate pressure drop during inhalation, making it possible to use a simpler more reliable second stage No type of manual adjustment of the second stage is necessary due to the consistency derived from a first stage that guarantees a stable flow of air, even under extreme conditions

All metal technology second stages have superior performance over plastic second stages, especially in cold water, due to the high thermal conductivity that limits the freezing effect Additional benefits are the improved durability, the longer working life and less dry mouth from breathing compressed air This all metal second stage is made of marine grade brass

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 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 further reducing jaw fatigue Superflex hose is 3/8" Threaded hose and is 29 5" (75 cm) in length Mares Abyss 42 Metal comes with a limited lifetime warranty
