XDEEP NX Zen Colour Edition
XDEEP NX Zen Colour Edition is a new twist on our favourite single tank wing system. We could sit here and tell you all about how the system that applies advanced technology for a new dimension in recreational diving. Or that through meticulous design, applying advanced materials, technology and engineering, XDEEP make us feel at one with the aquatic world.
But you want to know about the NX Zen Colour Edition
If you go out and jump on a dive boat anywhere in the world you will see BCD’s and wings in black. There may be slight variations from one brand to another. But as a general rule they are black. The XDEEP NX Zen is the result of our passion to break from that tradition, from what works, into what performs at a previously unheard of level. Deconstructing traditional designs, bringing XDEEP’S technical diving experience and expertise, led to a step change in BCD design and application.
Be at one with your equipment
The XDEEP NX Zen Colour Edition is so named for a reason; that feeling of being at one with the world that diving brings. Advances in materials technology, in diving design and XDEEP’s ability to apply modern engineering concepts, created a dive system that delivered on their priorities. A stable, comfortable and ergonomic BCD that is truly ZEN.
With you above as well as beneath the waves
A modern BCD does not only need to create a sense of freedom in the water, but also provide security and confidence on the surface. Careful attention to the wing design and the balance point of the XDEEP NX ZEN system means you are held comfortably and confidently whilst waiting for your boat pickup or sharing the excitement of the dive with your buddies.
Built for unmatched performance and comfort – epic look is just a side effect
XDEEP are passionate about doing things better, improving and refining their products. XDEEP wants BCD’s to be safer, to be robust and reliable and to be more comfortable for divers. Their engineers and designers leave no stone unturned in the pursuit of this goal. From the overall design concept to the little details, everything is examined and improved. Once XDEEP comes up with the design, they obsess about identifying and using the best materials.
The NX Series is the culmination of their experience, expertise, and passion so far. The NX collection of products has already changed dive industry thinking, and has improved diver experiences from exploration cave diving to tropical reefs.
Less is more
The ZEN wing is deliberately narrow so that it does not protrude from the side of your tank. 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.
How is this possible?
Traditional wings have a large central dead zone. No air bladder, just fabric. By using this space for more effectively, they have reduced the dead zone considerably which means we can reduce the overall bladder size.
LESS effort MORE comfort and safety
The tight to the tank streamlining makes buoyancy control more precise. The wing shape adds stability due to reduced air migration and attention to the ideal balance for easy expert trim. When diving in currents, you want to reduce drag for ease of finning. When exploring swim-throughs in a wreck or reef you want to be free of entanglement. This is where you will truly value the XDEEP NX ZEN’s design.
A breakthrough at the top
As a result of the revolutionary inflator design, first seen on the NX GHOST, XDEEP has been able to make a design breakthrough at the top of the wing. We have created a leaner and smaller shape, opening up space around the valves and hoses, reducing unwanted air migration and creating a better balance for better trim.
Failure points have been eliminated as far as possible by removing all threads and gaskets. The material is completely resistant to any crushing or traumatic forces. A direct weld of the inflator to the bladder ensures a robust and direct connection for maximum performance.
Small Upper Wing Section
The compact engineering of the NX series inflator has allowed a reduction in the size of the upper part of the wing. This results in a position at the surface that lifts you high out of the water and ensures lift is in the right place while underwater.
Precise control of gas movement
Traditional inflation systems are mounted on the side, so that as gas is injected it can disturb trim if you are in a good flat position. The compact nature of the NX series adapter allows it to be placed dead centre, eliminating unwanted gas movement. Air is added and is immediately distributed equally down both sides of the wing, leaving you in perfect trim.
