Maximum performance with lightness
• Highly-resistant octopus for demanding divers
• Second stage case 100% SMC carbon
• Technology and lightness
An octopus suitable to every need, but not for everyone! The Carbon octopus features the Mesh-Grid system and integrated VAD, which, combined with the Fluid Dynamic Deflector, ensures very easy and natural breathing. And it’s all combined into a carbon second stage for increased thermal conductivity and incredible lightness.
FOR DEMANDING DIVERS
Those who dive frequently and in difficult conditions need products featuring superior quality and consistent performance, time and time again. Mares has always focused on new technologies and innovative products that lead to concrete benefits: superior reliability and performance will be appreciated by the most experienced demanding divers.
Designing and engineering products for cold water diving requires maximum attention to performance, safety and technical details. Mares creates equipment specific for cold water and ice diving. Rigorous tests ensure top notch performance keeping you comfortable, warm and secure. Even the US Navy has conceded Mares to be the best equipment for extreme conditions.
Comfort is always one of the primary design elements in Mares equipment. Mares through superior technology continues to research, innovate and upgrade your level of comfort before and during your dive. Equipment marked with Max Comfort bring this quality of comfort to the most up-to-date premier pinnacle.
IDEAL FOR TRAVEL
In today’s world of travel we are strictly confined by airline weight restrictions, therefore the design of your equipment needs to encompass elements to be travel friendly. Lightweight, streamlined, easy to pack and hassle free are just some of the elements included in the gear marked for travel.
Patented technology, conceived and created to optimize performance, safety, and reliability. This brass valve is covered with a hard PU then the head is layered olecularly with a soft PU. Tri-material (brass, soft polyurethane, and “heavy duty” polyurethane) reaches a new level of durability.
VAD - VORTEX ASSISTED DESIGN
All Mares second stages offer the unique patented VAD system. The air bypass tube conveys air to the mouthpiece creating a swirling vortex with a low pressure area in center that keeps the diaphragm down during inhalation, for very sensitive and easy breathing at all depths.
The patented mesh design of the second stage cover reduces the pressure of water fl owing onto the second stage diaphragm and minimizes free-flow. Even in strong currents it eliminates the need for a knob to ‘de-tune’ your air delivery system to stop free fl owing: Advanced Technology through basic physics.
EXTREME COLD WATER
Regulators conceived to guarantee unbeatable performance and reliability in extremely cold water, even ice diving: the CWD kit is equipped on the first stage and the All Metal second stage is entirely coated with fluoropolymer resin finish, even on all key components.
FLUID DYNAMIC DEFLECTOR
This innovative deflector, developed after in-depth study and tests of fl uid dynamics, is engineered to receive and properly direct the airfl ow from the by-pass tube to the mouthpiece. Combined with the VAD it delivers a very natural and effortless breathing.
Mares developed the new “superflex” hose after many years of testing and research. The results achieved far surpass the tests required by EN250, and even the highly stringent additional tests Mares applies for use in extreme conditions. Its exceptional softness and extremely light weight guarantee the maximum freedom of movement.
Advanced technology and light weight! The exceptional mechanical resistance and extraordinary light weight make the carbon regulator perfect for meeting the needs of the most demanding divers, for all uses and any requirement. In addition, the high thermal conductivity of carbon guarantees natural breathing, reducing troublesome dry mouth.
All dive products of the category Octopus have a high manufacturer quality and take care of even the smallest details. At scubastore you can find the full catalogue of Regulators products from Mares.
