The Apeks XTX 50 Octopus is the perfect redundant second stage for any of the Apeks primary regulators. Designed to meet the demanding coldwater standards the XTX 50 has a balanced valve for performance, an inlet heat exchanger, full metal valve barrel, venturi and inhalation controls to ensure performance and reliability even in extreme cold conditions.
The inlet heat exchanger and full metal valve barrel help to disipate the cold generated as air decompresses between each stage, reducing the potential risk of ice crystals forming on critical components.
A venturi lever allows control of the air flow within the housing, directing it to either provide full performance and air flow or free flowing protection by forcing air back towards the diaphragm. The inhalation adjuster allows the breathing effort required to open the valve to be increased from its optimal setting as required by the diver.
The XTX50 is finished off with a high visibility yellow front cover and trim and is fitted with a standard length braided octopus hose. The braided hose offers improved UV protection over traditional rubber hoses and also significantly raises the burst pressure of the low pressure hose.
