Details for Scubapro Litehawk
The LiteHawk is a new edition to our back-flotation family. Divers get the benefits of back flotation in this super lightweight BC made for easy travelling.
•Low-drag, low profile progressively-shaped air cell on a light back flotation BC.
•Elastic cords automatically control the size and keep the air cell streamlined when partially inflated.
•Constructed in durable1000 Denier Nylon for long life wear.
•Super Cinch system for improved stability.
•Adjustable belt-style waist strap with Nylon lightweight buckle.
•Lightweight, perfect for travel: just 2,36 kg.
•Available with Balanced Power Inflator or optional AIR2
Back Flotation Jackets
•Back flotation jackets are the BCs of choice for divers preferring a totally uncluttered chest area.
•The design positions the air cell on the sides of the cylinder, rather than under the arms or over the shoulders of the diver.
•SCUBAPRO integrates this design with a patented back flotation harness that provides superior load carrying technology designed for increased comfort on prolonged or repeated dives.
•Underwater it helps the diver automatically to a horizontal floating position
Buoyancy Control & Safety
•Back flotation technology positions air bladder in the back, providing exceptional freedom of movement around chest and shoulders.
•U.S. patented quick-release integrated weight system offers more comfort and convenience. Weight pouches accommodate up to 6kg each in Large to XXL jackets and 5kg in Small-Medium jackets and are secured in specially-designed pockets with oversized buckles. Weight integrated pockets help to avoid hips and back discomfort, usually associated with weight belts and are easy to handle even with thick gloves.
•3-dump deflation system enables divers to dump air from a variety of underwater positions. Because divers are not always in an upright position when they need to vent air, SCUBAPRO jackets feature several dump valves at different positions: on the right shoulder, equipped with an easy to find lanyard handle; on the left shoulder, integrated in the corrugated hose; in the rear waist level, for a diver in head down position.
•All jackets need a minimum internal volume to allow sufficient air to be injected inside to reach neutral buoyancy and, when needed, to create lift for the ascent and flotation on the surface. European Union norms require a minimum lift capacity in relation to the size of the tank used, measured in kilograms. The right lift is a comfort and a safety issue because a jacket also needs to be streamlined to reduce drag in order to save energy when swimming.
•Knighthawk Lift capacity by size : S:15kg, M:21kg, L:21kg, XL: 21kg, XXL:21kg.
•Patented harness incorporates anatomically-shaped components to allow for even load distribution.
•Streamlined air cell technology.
•Automatic volume control of air cell through compression straps.
•Available with Balanced Power Inflator. The compact SCUBAPRO BPI inflates and deflates at the touch of a button, featuring special soft touch, ergonomically shaped buttons for a good grip and easy one hand operation with gloves. SCUBAPRO Air II optional extra.
•1000 denier nylon, our heaviest material for maximum resistance to punctures and abrasion.
•Angled stainless steel D-rings for easy access.
•High quality seam construction. SCUBAPRO was the first manufacturer to use a high tech method of welding to achieve a flawless seal on all jackets made from polyurethane backed nylon. The use of high power radio waves allows polyurethane material to bond without heat, resulting in a very strong and long-lasting seam.
Comfort & Convenience
•Rotating buckles on adjustable shoulder straps improve fit by following diver movements.
•Dual zippered pockets with rollout pocket — easily accessible with an expandable compartment for varying amounts of accessories.
•Soft neoprene neck roll and padded back pad provide a skin-friendly padding for signiﬁcantly more comfort.
•Firmly padded, flexible cummerbund compensates for changes in the suit resulting from varying depths.
Available sizes: S - 15 kg ; M - 20 kg ; L - 20 kg; XL - 20 kg : XXL - 20 kg

LET US KNOW YOUR OPINION
I bought this product of Scubastore and it arrived in Qatar after 4 working days...great service from Scubastore. The BCD is very simple and straight forward and very light which is good as I bought it as a travel BCD to substitute my Oceanic Excursion when not diving at home. I will have to get a crotch strap to use this BCD as it really moves up due to the narrow cumber band which does not hold the BCD in place effectively. I have contacted ScubaPro through their website to see if they can supply a crotch strap however unfortunately do not seem respond to online queries. There are no intergraded weights and the cumber band is in exactly the same place as my weight belt on my body, so the belts overlap which is uncomfortable. I thought of adding Dive Rite weight pockets however adding on to the BCD seems to defeat the purpose of getting a light system. I am not too happy with the BCD and wont use it again until finding a suitable a crotch strap.
