Apeks XL4 Plus Regulator Package
The Apeks XL4 Plus Regulator Package is a compact lightweight regulator suitable for diving in all environments including cold water locations. Its design and low weight help reduce jaw fatigue on long dives. The XL4+ also makes an ideal stage regulator, perfect for the technical exploration diver with a large amount of equipment. The XL4 Plus regulator is a high-performance option for those technical divers serious about weight savings.
Apeks XL4+ 1st Stage
The XL4+ first stage is a lightweight, compact regulator based on the expedition tested Apeks DS4 platform. The design incorporates an over-moulded first-stage endcap and environmental diaphragm. The purpose of these features is to prevent ice build-up that causes the first stages to free flow in extreme circumstances. The endcap also protects the first stage from impact damage.
There is a large surface area heat exchanger diaphragm helping increase the gas temperature inside the first stage. This improves the cold-water performance of the regulator. The unique over-balanced diaphragm design as the diver descends, the over-balancing feature allows the medium pressure gas in the hose to increase at a faster rate than ambient. This results in superior performance at depth.
This first stage comes with 2 high-pressure ports and 4 low-pressure ports. Enough for you to add drysuit hoses and transmitters to your regulator, the way you want it.
Apeks XL4+ 2nd Stage & Octopus
The second stages are compact and lightweight improving comfort and jaw fatigue on long dives. The second stage is a pneumatically balanced lever operated poppet valve regulator. It features a large, over moulded self-flushing and controllable purge button. The venturi lever is easy to use and locate. The flexible nylon braided hose has better cold water performance than a traditional rubber hose.
As you would expect from Apeks, the XL4+ comes with a comfobite mouthpiece that has a unique bridge that fits across the upper palate and does not require bite pressure to stay in place. Apeks are committed to sustainable design, as such the mouthpiece is held in place with a re-useable mouthpiece clip. This also makes changing mouthpieces in the field really simple. The exhaust tee is made from a durable and flexible rubber providing excellent bubbles spread up the side of your mask.
Apeks Gauge Options
The Apeks Single Pressure Gauge submersible pressure (contents) gauge, with an internal Bourdon pressure measuring mechanism, gives you clear information on the gas contents of your cylinder. Furthermore, the gauge indicates the cylinder bottle pressure and the dial range is from zero to 360 Bar (an imperial version is also available with a range up to 5000 Psi). The face is designed with clarity in mind by being uncluttered, with large black figures on a luminous background giving a long phosphorescent effect. This makes viewing as easy as possible, even in poor visibility conditions.
If you want a little more information from your console, then the Apeks Twin Gauge combines a submersible pressure (contents) gauge and a depth gauge housed in a specially designed case. The unit is completed with a high-pressure hose. The console clearly displays your pressure and depth readings for easy viewing underwater and the dials have a long phosphorescent effect for better reading in poor visibility conditions. The submersible pressure gauge provides accurate pressure readings with a range of up to 360 bar. The depth gauge reads up to 70m.
The Apeks Triple Console gives you accurate, clear readings and is made from the best quality materials. As such they offer perfect functionality and excellent robustness. In essence, the 2 1 instrument combo is an Apeks Twin Gauge console with the Apeks compass on the reverse. A compact system that we believe is the best combo set available anywhere in the world.
Apeks Regulator Bag
Apeks Regulator Bag is a stylish way to look after your Apeks XL4+ Regulators. It’s a good size, allowing more than enough size for your regulator and other small items. The robust rubber zip holders are easy to operate even with gloves on and the mesh at the bottom of the bag makes sure you can drip your regs dry.
