The XDeep Stealth 2.0 Classic Sidemount System is the perfect solution for cave diving and for many years has been the first choice of the world’s best divers for their exploring.
The compact, streamlined and tough double shell wing provides 16kg of lift that uses carefully selected materials that will stand up to the rigours of cave diving. The wing is then mounted to an infinitely adjustable and customisable harness. The Stealth 2.0 Classic has been designed to achieve a streamlined system that stays in tune with your anatomy. Whatever position you are in and regardless of how much gas you have in the wing, the distance of the centre of the wing away from the body is minimal.
Unlike other systems, the wing has its own independent five-point mounting system which means you can place the wing exactly where it needs to be. It can even be adjusted during your dive to maintain trim as you mount and unmount cylinders. For a real squeeze of a restriction, you can even remove it to completely minimise your profile.
The Stealth 2.0 harness uses differing webbing thicknesses and stiffness to provide better comfort and fit. On the waist there is a stiff and rigid webbing that enhances the ease of use and operation of the D rings for cylinder mounting. Shoulder straps are softer to improve comfort, fit and flexibility. The crotch strap is very flexible, even soft, to reduce chaffing and wear on your exposure suit.
The harness has two ‘nodes’ which act as junctions for the shoulder and waist straps and for positioning the central weight pocket. The harness adjustment allows these nodes to be placed on the axis of rotation so that regardless of your position in the water, the harness will stay exactly as you set it up. The central weight pocket can move relative to the lower node for maximum comfort and zero resistance.
A single piece harness can take hours to properly fit and often need refining post div but because the Stealth 2.0 has independent adjustment of the shoulder and waist straps it is quicker and easier to obtain a custom fit. Adjusting the shoulders does not affect the waist D ring positions, the crotch strap is a simple triglide adjustment.
The Stealth 2.0 utilises an incredibly flexible weight system that has the capacity to cope with configurations from 1kg to over 20Kg and is designed to keep weights secure and immovable. Whether you are in arctic water with a thick exposure suit or in shorts and a T shirt, the weight system is flexible enough to meet your needs exactly
The flexibility designed into the Stealth 2.0 weight system ensures you control weight placement relative to your centre of gravity. The central weight pocket has a considerable range of movement, so it can be ideally positioned for balance. The same principle that is used in twinset diving when moving a V weight into the optimum position.
The weight system uses side fastening bands that are overlaid by a main band that prevents unwanted opening of the pocket, even if in contact with the ceiling of a wreck or cave. It is quick and easy to see if the pocket is improperly secured and corrections can simply be made, even underwater.
XDeep have a handy interactive weight system configurator that allows to you play with the weight pocket options, letting you explore the possible combinations before buying.
The Stealth 2.0 Classic is available in this standard configuration or as the Stealth 2.0 Classic RB which has a redundant bladder.
