Lightweight, Excellent Breathing Second

By A1erCRU

The SS1 breaths nearly as well as my T1, which is saying something. Since I fly strictly carry-on, this fits very well with my "lighter is better" packing. Also it has a quick disconnect feature, allowing tooless removal from BC for easy packing. This is much lighter and breaths better than the very good Air2 it replaced.

 

Great product

By Gogey

Simple yet the best combo inflator out there.Having it be removable is great.It is the only inflator out there that I have found that is adaptable to either a 3/4in. or 1.0in. inflator hose.

When you took dive lessons you learned to perform specific skills to make you safe and comfortable underwater and at the surface. One of those skills was buoyancy control. Once you start diving for fun you use your buoyancy control device constantly throughout the dive. Your octopus or alternate air source device on the other hand is never used unless there is an emergency out of air situation. Reacting properly in an out of air emergency can make the difference between a safe dive and a tragedy. If your alternate air source and your BCD inflator device are one and the same, you will always know where to find it in an emergency.

The SS1 is the newest and most sophisticated product of its type, taking the concept to new levels of convenience, reliability and performance. It contains a high-flow second stage that performs on the same level as many high-performance regulators. It will deliver high flow rates to a diver at depth with a minimum of effort. It is, however very stable and not prone to unnecessary free-flow or leakage from water movement while swimming, or during entries or exits. The inflator/deflator is easy to operate with soft surfaced buttons placed where they can be easily operated with one hand.

One of the most unique features of the SS1 is its adaptability to almost any BCD. Atomic has designed a set of adapters (patent pending) to fit virtually every poplar BCD brand available. The adapters also include components for attaching the cable exhaust feature of your existing BCD (if applicable). The SS1 features a quick disconnect not only on the low-pressure hose, but the BCD hose as well. The adapters that fit the SS1 to the BCD are connected to the SS1 with a threaded collar that can be easily unscrewed to detach it completely from the BCD. Now you can carry or store the SS1 with your primary regulator and gauges (patent pending).

The SS1 combines the functions of the inflator and octopus regulator into a single unit. This reduces the overall bulk and weight of your dive gear; eliminates hoses, and places your back-up regulator in a fixed, familiar location. This time proven concept is a convenient and efficient alternative to the dedicated octopus second stage. Reduce your rig by one hose with the high performance Atomic SS1. The high-flow, low-pressure disconnect is interchangeable with many other models yet smaller size and lighter in weight. Large oversized and ergonomically shaped buttons are easy to find for pneumatic or oral inflation/deflation. They are easy to distinguish and faced with soft tactile rubber surfaces.

The elliptically shaped body of the SS1 lies flat against the BCD keeping it out-of-the-way and reducing drag. Seat wear is the first cause of regulator leaks and performance degradation. The stainless-steel dynamic orifice is pressure energized and only contacts the rubber seat when in use. Equipped with a titanium lever this high-strength metal part is the link to your air supply and will never fail due to rust or corrosion. The integrated purge cover is a one-piece flexible cover allows purge of the regulator when depressed anywhere on the cover surface.

The SS1 has 316-grade stainless-steel inflation/deflation stem, quick disconnect, demand valve body, orifice and springs. The mouthpiece and diaphragm are silicone rubber and the SS1 body is manufactured from fiberglass reinforced nylon. The SS1 is a dependable downstream demand valve design. The SS1 weighs 7 oz. (200 g) without the hose and the 3/8" threaded hose also weighs 7 oz. (200 g) and measures 28" (71 cm) in length. The SS1 comes with an owner's manual.

This product can only be shipped to U.S. addresses.

Not so good

Not the quality of other Atomic products. Not the easy air flow that they say.

great

By IAN P.

This octo is really good if you are looking to streamline your gear (as I always am). It has an eclipse shape that allows it to lie closer to your body totally gets rid of of that yellow hose that is always getting caught on things. I read reviews that said it breathed better than some primaries. I tried it at 60fsw and it breathed OK. It didn't breathe as well as they said, but hey. It also has a great quick disconnect that also has the same thread pattern as a garden hose. That's right, you can hook it up to a hose and wash it out. Great! And now you have great access to clean the inside of your BC.

 

Awesome breather

By Rob

From the ease of operation to the effortless breating, this is an incredible device. I have no alternates to compare it to but, I can say that it breathes better than my primary second stage which is Atomic also(Z2). Very, Very pleased.

 

Reliable, handy

By Icewater

Husband and I both have this safe second, performs well at all angles and depths when tested. Very pleased with it, breathes easy. Nice to streamline gear.

 

good piece of gear!

By coldwaterLloyd

This is certainly the best of the lot , ive tried them all , interchangeable connector is a great innovation . Only thing i can find that isnt perfect...it breathes a little noisy .

 

Best of its Kind!

By coldwaterLloyd

The best example of its kind

 

Best ever second stage

By moe

This is a great second stage regulator/inflator. I love the convenience of not having an Octopus and ease of maintenance and cleaning.

The Best Hands Down!!

By Andrew

I highly recommend this product because of its high quality. Great adaptiblity to any BC. Doesn't get any better than this.

 

Nice...

By coldwaterLloyd

This thing holds its tune better than any of the others ive tried . Very user friendly

 

Nice!!!!

By Gogey

I love the ability to be able to use on multiple sizes of inflator hoses.It lays nicely against your BC.No issues with free flowing in any senerio.Love it!!

 

One of the best octo/inflators

By DiverDown

One of the best breathing octo/inflators available. The SS1 is very lightweight and has a low profile. It comes with multiple corrugated-hose adapters to fit any brand of BC. The lp inflator hose has a screw-on adapter that can be taken off and mounted on a different lp hose. I prefer the Miflex hoses. They are much more flexible and are much more comfortable to use with an octo/inflator. All in all, this is a top-quality octo/inflator that I am very happy with!

 

Good, but Noisy

By Jim

All around good purchase. Easy to use, and very convenient, but extremely noisy to breathe through. I would still recommend it, but would have to include a warning about the noise. I have yet to try this at depths below 100'.

 

Great second regulator

By beachtown77

Let me first say that I dont have the titanium one but the regular one. I think this second reg. is great. It does make load noises when you use it. But I dont care about noise. I am about performance!!! I have used this at depth 125' with ease. People that say it breathes as well as thier primary regulator are not using top of the line primary's. Although it works great and I am not putting it down. It definately does'nt breath like my Aqualung LX ACD. I still give it 5 stars. It never leaks and always performs!

Q&A

Questions & Answers

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
Tim C  Already have one and good performance.
Hanford G  trying to clean up my rig and removing 1 hose streamlines my setup and allows for more options to store additional items during a dive
RICK R  best integrated octo out there! Quality throughout.
Robert L  Does this have to be rinsed under pressure?
Michael S  Nope
CHRISTOPHER H  No, it does not need to be rinsed under pressure. A thorough soak will suffice
Joe S  You do not have to rinse it under pressure, but just like any 1st and 2nd stage, you should avoid pressing the purge button while submerged or under heavy rinsing. This will allow water to penetrate the working mechanisms of the regulator speeding up corrosion. However, you can treat the deflate button as you would with any other BC power inflator. You should rinse your BC and empty using the pull dumps and the deflator on the SS1.
Robert L  Thanks Joe!
Shopper  Can this be used with an overbalanced first stage?
thomas m  Dunno - not savvy enough to understand the question.. Popped it into my scubapro system (I had an Air2) when I got anew BCD. No issues.
Joe S  Yes. It is a second stage regulator and can be adjusted for different 1st stage pressures
JAMES S  Yes all first stages deliver the same balance of air pressureEnter
