The XDeep NX Zen Standard Stainless Steel Wing System is a complete wing, harness and stainless steel backplate system designed for single cylinder use by recreational divers.
Everything about the Zen system is designed to make your diving experience as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. How the system feels and behaves whilst in the water is just as important as its function.
The Zen wing is deliberately narrow so that it does not protrude from the side of your cylinder. This brings advantages in enhancing your buoyancy control, in reducing any entanglement hazards and in significantly reducing drag. As we reduce drag we usually improve our gas consumption, enabling longer and safer dives.
Traditional wings have a large central ‘dead zone’. No air bladder, just fabric. By using this space for more effectively XDeep have reduced the dead zone considerably which means they have been able to reduce the overall bladder size.
The backplate has also seen improvements. By enlarging the upper part of the back plate they have achieved better weight distribution during the dive and it also removes load from the lumbar region. The lower plate design helps to spread the load comfortably and safely allowing for the optimal attachment of weight pockets and accessories.
The back plate design has resulted in major improvements in donning and doffing the system. When the harness is unfastened, the shoulder straps are 20% longer than in a classic harness. This creates more room even if you have restricted movement in the shoulders. Tightening the buckle of the waist strap pulls the shoulder straps snugly down, perfectly tensioning the harness fit to your body. No need to adjust for changes from wetsuit to drysuit. The whole system is comfortably held closer to your body stabilising the entire scuba unit.
