The Apeks XTX40 DST may be a mid level regulator in the Apeks range but it is always classed as a high performance regulator in independent reviews. It comes with all the features of the highly successful XTX50 with the exception of diver adjustable breathing resistance control.
The DST first stage has four low pressure ports all mounted on a rotating turret for optimal hose routing and two high pressure ports to accommodate an analogue gauge or console as well as a wireless transmitter for a dive computer. The DST can also be fitted with an optional fifth low pressure port upgrade that adds an extra port on the of the rotating turret.
The XTX 40 second stage features an innovative Diver Changeable Exhaust system (DCE). The system gives the diver the ability to change from a small exhaust tee to a large exhaust tee. This gives the user a choice, wider exhaust tee for minimal bubble interference (essential for underwater photography) and narrow exhaust tee for a smaller compact comfortable regulator. Only the narrow exhaust tee is supplied with the regulator.
The second stage housing can be converted from a right-handed hose configuration to a left handed configuration. The process of changing the regulator to a left-handed configuration is both quick and simple. However, this procedure must ONLY be performed by an Authorised Service Technician.
Braided flexi-hoses are now standard on all models. These hoses are lighter weight, more flexible and more durable.
Suitable for coldwater use (below 10 C / 50 F).
Compatible with EAN40 out of the box.
