Sidemount evolved from cave diving but it is such a safe and comfortable way of diving with multiple cylinders that it has now taken off as a system and technique that all technical and advanced recreational divers can use.
As a world leader in the design and manufacture of diving equipment with a proud history of innovation Apeks has developed the first CE approved sidemount regulator set specifically for this type of diving.
Our test divers were amazed when they tried Sidemount diving. Try it and you may never go back!
