The Apeks XTX50 Octopus is a top-of-the-line Octopus in terms of features and performance and provides the same features and performance as the XTX50 second stage.
The XTX50 Octopus is fitted with the same high performance pneumatically balanced valve as the standard second stage for outstanding performance. The hose inlet has a heat exchanger that helps to dissipate the extreme cold temperatures that are generated as the flow from the first stage is decompressed into the second stage housing ready for you to breathe.
The octopus has diver adjustable inhalation that allows the diver to adjust the inhalation resistance for a customised breathe as well as an adjustable venturi lever that alters the way air flows within the housing.
This can be converted from a right-handed hose configuration to a left-handed one by our authorised service technicians before shipping, find out more here.
It comes with a high visibility yellow front cover and a 36 yellow hose.
Suitable for cold water use (below 10 C / 50 F).
