Dive Gear weighs a lot and can get bulky. If there is a way to streamline it and make it weigh less it's a plus for the diver. Streamlining reduces water resistance, conserves air, and is less likely to get snagged on something. If your gear weighs less it's easier to transport to and from the boat or dive site, and with weight restrictions when we fly every ounce (gram) counts. XS Scuba's DuoKev High Pressure Hose address both these issues. Hose is 35% Thinner than Traditional Rubber HP Hoses 0.31" (8 mm), this streamlined design lowers your profile, reducing water resistance, is less likely to snag and helps conserve air due to less effort when fining. Hose is 51% lighter than Traditional Rubber Hoses measuring 32" (81.3 cm) in length, less weigh, better travel and transport.
The XS Scuba DuoKev HP Hose is built to last. Hose has a Multi-Layer Construction with a Nylon Polyamide inner liner, a Double Thick Kevlar Layer and a Thermoplastic Polyurethane outer jacket. The Hose Fittings are made from Electro-Less Nickel Plated Brass with 304-Stainless Steel Ferrule's with 2-Point Crimping. Using these quality materials and in the construction of the hose give it a Maximum Working Pressure of 5,000 psi (345 bars) with a Burst Pressure of 20,000 psi (1,379 bars). Swivel Lockup has occurred with standard HP Hoses, so XS Scuba added a Deep Air-Spool Well to prevent this lockup from happening. If you have had problems with hoses not seating properly on your first-stage regulator, XS Scuba put a Stepped Male 7/16" Fitting that eliminates the clearance problems associated with aftermarket hoses.
The DuoKev HP Hose meets and exceeds requirements of CE EN250 and ANSI Z86.7.2-1987 standards and XS Scuba makes sure you know you have a genuine DuoKev Hose by Stamping each and every hose with the Date code (quarter/year) and a manufacture (XS) mark. Installation is made easy with the common 9/16" Wrench Flats. The Hose is Factory Cleaned for use with up to 80% Oxygen, comes standard with a Viton O-ring and then each hose is Individually Sealed and packaged assuring its oxygen compatibility. This well built durable, lightweight and low profile hose is available 7 lengths to meet any divers need. Hose comes in 6", 24", 30", 32", 36", 40" and 48" (15.2, 61, 76.2, 81.3, 91.4, 101.6 and 121.9 cm).

Comments about XS Scuba DuoKev High Pressure Hoses:
Used the hose as a replacement for the HP hose that came with my air integrated computer that has a quick disconnect. Hose diameter is significantly smaller and somewhat stiffer than original hose but was easy to install. Only have about 5 dives on it so far and it appears to be working fine.
