What's in the box: 2'nd Stage Regulators and LP Hose
The NEO Octopus 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. 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 us the ability to model and test performance while still in the early stages of development.
The Regulator is made from super sturdy ABS/Polycarbonate material, comes with a 36" (91.4cm) Braided 3/8" Threaded Maxflex Hose and is covered by a 24 month limited warranty.
