The Mares Prestige 15X Regulator is all about being a reliability, compactness and high performance which are all features that the divers have learned to love about Mares Regulators over the years. The Prestige 15X is an excellent balance between performance and affordability.
The 15X first stage is lightweight and compact with a balance diaphragm design that delivers great performance thanks to Mares's Dynamic Flow Control (DFC) that optimises the air flow for the second stage ports and minimises intermediate pressure drop for a smooth breathe. The 15X high pressure valve uses their Advanced Coating Technology (ACT) to create a valve that is much more durable.
The Prestige is a mid size second stage made from ultralight techno-polymer which is an abrasion resistant plastic. The light weight second stage uses a downstream valve that is enhanced using Mares's Vortex Assisted Design (VAD). VAD uses a bypass tube to deliver air directly to the mouthpiece but at the same time create a vortex which helps to draw the diaphragm inwards, improving the valve response and opening it further for improved gas flow.
The second stage is fitted with a large purge button and a compact exhaust deflector on the back. The two stages are joined via a flexible braided low pressure hose.
