About Oceanic NEO FDX-10 Regulator

Simply Elegant

The NEO is comprised of precision-machined components and extensive R&D with the goal of creating a lightweight, high performance regulator Mission Accomplished The NEO features effortless pneumatically balanced breathing paired with a compact over-balanced diaphragm first stage The pneumatically balanced second stage reduces breathing resistance to near zero with a balanced valve seat designed to respond to the slightest inhalation A pneumatically balanced second stage actually has (or can have) the same initial crack opening effort as a mechanically balanced, but the spring force of a pneumatically balanced second stage is lighter so it's spring rate is also lower

Therefore the force required to open the valve farther as flow increases is less than that required for a mechanically balanced second stage with a higher rate spring So the total effort to breathe the pneumatically balanced second stage is indeed less The spring force must be just enough to overcome the difference between downstream air pressure and upstream balance chamber pressure The downstream air travels through a hole in the poppet into the balance chamber and applies an "upstream" force just slightly less than the downstream force Ergonomic A V S (Adjustable Venturi System) Dive/Pre-Dive Switch designed to be unobtrusive, yet easily manipulated even with the thickest gloves, the A V S deflector vane found in the NEO either diverts airflow from the valve to the mouthpiece, producing effortless venturi-assisted inhalation or creates enough resistance to prevent free flow on the surface The NEO was designed using the latest 3-D computer modeling techniques This allows Oceanic the ability to model and test performance while still in the early stages of development The Neo ABS/Polycarbonate second stage is Oceanic's lightest weight second stage weighing a mere 5 7 oz (161 6 g), and comes equipped with a MaxFlex Hose The combination of the lightweight second stage, MaxFlex Hose and the Orthodontic Mouthpiece produces minimal jaw fatigue no matter how long the duration of your dive

FDX-10 Over Balanced Diaphragm First Stage is forged from chromed marine-grade brass, the FDX-10 features optimized air paths and angled hose ports for superior performance and comfort 2 high pressure and 4 low pressure ports allow convenient and comfortable hose routing At 28 oz (794 g), the FDX10 is one of Oceanic's lightest weight first stages Regulator system is nitrox ready up to 40% out of the box" Regulator comes with an Owner's Manual

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Can you use the second stage in cold water?
Joe S  The Oceanic Regulators are rated down to 50 degrees only. We have not had this regulator CE rated for colder than that. With that being said, the Hollis version of this regulator is cold water CE rated. They are the same regulator with different purge covers.
