About Scubapro Knighthawk BC, Black

Designed for male divers, the Knighthawk BCD boasts of having a low profile, backpack-style harness system, integrated weight system, and back-mounted buoyancy. A robust and comfortable back flotation jacket that integrates numerous performance features to deliver outstanding comfort and easy handling. The Knighthawk's retractable air bladder offers ultimate streamlining and significantly reduces drag. The Knighthawk is equipped with Scubapro's Balanced Power Inflator, has two rollup zippered pockets, Four Stainless Steel D-rings for attachment of accessories, a sturdy Stainless Steel Tank Attachment System, and a comfortable neck roll of soft neoprene with a special foam back pad, making it the BCD of choice.

Back flotation technology positions air bladder in the back, providing exceptional freedom of movement around chest and shoulders. Streamlined air cell technology and automatic volume control of air cell through compression straps provide a low profile throughout the dive. Rotating Quick Release shoulder buckles and adjustable shoulder straps, adjustable sternum strap and waist strap with cummerbund all improve fit. All these straps are equipped with squeeze-style" quick release buckles for easy donning and doffing.

Soft neoprene neck roll and padded back pad provide skin-friendly padding. Firmly padded, flexible cummerbund compensates for changes in the suit resulting from varying depths. Ergonomic harness incorporates anatomically-shaped components to allow for even load distribution. Quick-release integrated weight system offers more comfort and convenience. Pouches accommodate from 10lb to 12lb (4.5kg to 5.5kg) each (depending on size) and are secured in specially-designed pockets with oversized buckles. Two rear trim pockets counterbalance front weights and provide a well-balanced swimming position with 10lbs (4.5kg) capacity. Built-to-last from 1000-denier nylon outer bladder and 420-denier nylon inner, with urethane laminate interior and radio frequency (RF) welded seams for maximum resistance to punctures and abrasion.

For proper buoyancy control the Knighthawk BCD comes standard with Scubapro's Balanced Power Inflator and has a 3-dump deflation system that enables divers to dump air from a variety of underwater positions. In the up-right position you can use either the left-or-right shoulder pull-dumps with the right shoulder pull cord or the left shoulder integrated cable activated power inflator shoulder dump. When inverted in the water the lower left rear pull dump can facilitate buoyancy trim. Scubapro's Balanced Power Inflator provides a high inflation speed, especially at depth. Inflator has different shaped inflation and purge buttons for easy use even in extremely low light or murky water conditions. The BCD provides 33.7lbs to 44.9lbs (15.3kg to 20.4kg) of lift depending on the sizes, The Knighthawk weighs from 8.4lbs to 9.24lbs (3.81kg to 4.19kg) which is also size dependent. BCD comes with a 3/8" threaded low pressure quick-disconnect hose, owner's manual, is black in color and is covered by a 24 month limited warranty.

    Comments about Scubapro Knighthawk BC, Black:

    Product is good, but it is hefty. I like the mesh bag (I keep spare goggles there) I don't know how other back infated BC's are, but the Nighthawk has a tendency to push your face forward in the water if you put use too much air at the surface. Also had some issues getting air out at depth. The shoulder straps could be a bit snugger, even with a wetsuit. Otherwise, it's been great.
