APEXS XTX40 Octopus Features

What's in the box: APEXS XTX40 Octopus with LP Hose

In an emergency, the last thing you want is an octopus that you can't rely on. The APEKS XTX40 Octopus is just the octopus to put your mind at ease. It is a High-Performing piece of Scuba Equipment that you can rely on from the moment you enter the water until the time you're back on the beach or in the boat. The APEXS engineers kept the purpose of an octopus in mind when they designed this 2nd Stage. They made it Right-or-Left-Hand Compatible, which means no matter where the diver in need is located in relation to you, he or she can breathe comfortably from the XTX40 Octopus. Additionally, they left the VENTURI Control in the hands of the diver, allowing the diver to control how forceful or delicate the air flows.

The XTX Purge Button is Large-and-Easy-to-Operate. A 2-Stage Progressive Purge is used. Press the Purge on the side for a Lower Flow Rate, useful where more control is required such as Filling Lift Bags etc, then press in the center for the Full-Effect of the Purge, i.e. when regulator clearing etc. The Octopus comes with a 36" (91.4cm) 3/8" Threaded Braided Yellow Flexi-Hose that is Easy-to-See in an Emergency Out-of-Air-Situation. The Hose is lightweight, more flexible and more durable. The APEKS XTX40 Octopus is suitable for Coldwater Use and is Compatible with EAN40 for NITROX Use to 40% Out-of-the-Box. This Pneumatically-Balanced Second Stage results in Smooth, Easy Breathing and the Large VENTURI Lever has a Soft Touch Rubber Grip, which makes it Easier-to-Locate and Use. The Lever-Reduces the amount of Grit-Ingress and therefore Resists any possible Friction giving a Smooth Operation.

The 2nd Stage is manufactured with Active-Protection against Infection as all Molded-Parts are produced with an Additive that Kills METHICILLIN-Resistant Staphylococcus AUREUS (MRSA) , protects against E-Coli, Bacteria and Fungi, and is also very effective against Viruses, Mould, Yeast and Algae. A Silicone Exhaust Valve Improves the Breathing Performance of the Regulator. Silicone COMFO Bite Mouthpiece Reduces Jaw Fatigue, and allows you to enjoy the Diving Experience Longer. The COMFO Bite Mouthpiece was designed by an Aqua Lung Engineer who used a Retainer for his Teeth; he incorporated the same Orthodontic design into the COMFO-Bite. The Mouthpiece allows the Diver to Completely-Loosen the Bite on the Regulator Mouthpiece and allows it to Lightly Rest in their Mouth, making this the Most-Comfortable Mouthpiece available. The COMFO-Bite is made from Durable, Soft Black Silicone for Long Life.

A Heat Exchanger (patented) which surrounds the Valve Mechanism, Dissipates the Cold caused by Gas-Expansion while Drawing-In the Warmth of the Ambient Water for Excellent Coldwater Performance. The APEKS XTX40 Octopus is covered by a Limited Lifetime Warranty.
