For extreme emotions
• CWD Kit for extreme temperature
• High performance in cold water
• Second stage with fluoropolymer resin finish
The new Abyss 22 Navy is the Mares answer for your challenge in every condition. With careful analysis and evaluation of what happens in cold water, Mares has designed an exclusive product accurately studied to guarantee top performance and reliability under the toughest conditions, including diving under the ice. The higher heat exchange capability and superior ruggedness of rubber makes it the preferred choice for hose material in this application
All Metal Technology - Metal second stages have superior performance to plastic second stages, especially in cold water, thanks to the high thermal confuctivity that limits the feezing effect. Additional benefits are the improved durability, the longer working life and less dry mouth from breathing.
DFC (Dynamic Flow Control) - The DFC system minimizes the intermediate pressure drop during inhalation, making it possible to use a simpler and more reliable second stage. No type of manual adjustment is necessary, thanks to the consistency derived from a first stage that guarantees a stable flow of air, even under extreme conditions.
Extreme Cold Water - Regulators made to guarantee unbeatable performance and reliability in extremely cold water, even ice diving: the first stage is equipped with the CDW kit and all key components of the second stage (All Metal version only) are coated with fluoropolymer resin finish.
Mesh Grid - The patented mesh design of the second stage cover reduces the pressure of water flowing onto the second stage diaphragm and minimizes free-flow. Even in strong currents it eliminates the need for a knob to 'de-tune' your air delivery system to stop free flowing: advanced technology through basic physics.
VAD (Vortex Assisted Design) - All Mares second stages offer the unique patented VAD system. The air bypass tube conveys air to the mouthpiece creating a swirling vortex with a low pressure area in the center that keeps the diaphregm down during inhalation, for very sensitive and easy breathing at all depths.
