The Scubapro MK17 EVO C350 is a combination of a balanced cold water rated first stage and a high performance compact classic downstream second stage that offers excellent reliability and performance.
The MK17 is a performance cold water rated first stage with a balanced diaphragm design and environmental seal that both protects the internal components from pollutants and contaminants but also improves performance and reliability in cold water. The body and dry seal chamber incorporate heat exchanging fins that help to maintain a equilibrium between the surrounding water and the first stage.
The first stage features four low pressure ports (all which are high flow ports that offer maximum flow rates) and two high pressure ports. The configuration allows plenty of hose routing options as well accommodating a dive computer wireless transmitter alongside a traditional analogue gauge.
The C350 is a compact downstream second stage with a small body and exhaust cover to reduce both weight and drag in the water. Even though the C350 utilises a downstream valve, the valve has been redesigned to offer performance statistics similar to those of a balanced second stage and even offers a diver adjustable inhalation control knob to customise the breathe of the second stage.
As well as the inhalation, the diver also has control over the venturi effect within the housing. By setting the venturi lever into the 'Pre-Dive' position air flow is directed back towards the diaphragm to help reduce the risk of freeflows when entering the water or when the second stage isn't in use. Moving the lever to the 'Dive' position will provide maximum flow directly to the mouthpiece.
