The Atomic SS1 Alternate Air Source is not just a thing of convenience to get rid of a long hose and octopus but a truly high performance second stage and BCD inflator system built into one unit that incorporates Atomic ingenuity and material choice.
The SS1 delivers high flow rates even at depth with a minimum of effort thanks to a balanced valve comprising a titanium oriface and lever. The inflator / deflator is easy to operate with soft surfaced buttons placed where they can be easily operated with one hand. The quick disconnect coupling, regulator valve body, and inflation and deflation stems are machined from type 316 Stainless Steel or Titanium to avoid corrosion that would eventually seize components or degrade performance and function.
As with all BCD inflators in features a quick disconnect on the inlet hose but it also has a quick disconnect on the corrugated BCD hose as well to allow the second stage to be completely removed from the BCD.
The SS1 has been designed to fit virtually every popular BCD brand available using a range of adapters. The adapters also include components for attaching the cable exhaust feature of your existing BCD (if applicable). The adapters that fit the SS1 to the BCD are connected to the SS1 with a threaded collar that can be easily unscrewed to detach it completely from the BCD enabling you to carry or store the SS1 with your primary regulator and gauges. The SS1 offers pneumatic or oral inflation for buoyancy control and back-up breathing in one small package.
