Mares Proton Metal Octopus Features

What's in the box: Second Stage Octopus with LP Hose

Protons second stage is made of nickel and chrome-plated brass These materials offer a number of benefits: ruggedness and thinner walls which allow compact dimensions obtained without using smaller-diameter diaphragms; this result in reduced water drag The second stage ha an anti-freeze function, which is enhanced by the "radiator action" of the metal

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

The second stage cover features the new "mesh-grid" system for water inflow and outflow, which provides a further performance improvement 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

Furthermore, the compact and ergonomic exhaust tee ensures superior hydrodynamic performance and reduced exhalation resistance The mouthpiece is made of soft hypoallergenic silicone: limiting jaw fatigue and offering a secure fit even after very long dives The Proton Metal Octopus comes with a limited lifetime warranty
