Apeks Exotec Package

Apeks Exotec BCD

The Apeks Exotec BCD is a revolution in diving comfort, functionality and seductive engineering design. The ethos behind Exotec is the synthesis of equipment and diver. Created to fit like no other BCD and flow with the natural movement of the diver’s body, through the innovative BioReact articulation. Constructed with the usual, exacting Apeks build quality, the Exotec is a paradigm of form and function. BioReact articulating waist system for maximum comfort and freedom of movement. GripTek fabric keeps the BCD is place both on the surface and underwater. The bladder is constructed from super-tough Armoguard slick skin for increased abrasion resistance, faster drying and have a reduced risk of bacterial growth due to the slick surface. Anodised aluminium hardware is both strong and lightweight.

  • G hook chest strap and tank retainer allow for 1 handed simple operation.
  • 3 position height adjustable backplate allows for optimum fit.
  • Adjustable waist and shoulders.
  • 2 large pockets can be folded up flat when not in use to reduce drag.
  • Wrapture Harness System – Using patented swivel shoulder buckles and a
  • Proprietary, ultra-thin back plate, the Wrapture provides unsurpassed comfort and stability. Wrapture prevents the BC from “riding-up” on the surface.

The XTX200 is the flagship of the Apeks regulator range and the definitive blend of style and high performance. Every detail has been carefully designed to offer a regulator of the highest quality.

Features an innovative Diver Changeable Exhaust system (DCE). This system gives the diver the ability to change from a small exhaust tee to a large exhaust tee. This gives the user a choice, wider exhaust tee for minimal bubble interference (essential for underwater photography) and narrow exhaust tee for a smaller compact comfortable regulator. The regulator will be supplied with both sets of exhaust tees

Optional 5th port is available with the additional bonus of an integrated heat exchanger on the Tungsten, XTX200 and XTX100 first stages.

Can be converted from a right-handed hose configuration to a left-handed one. The process of changing the regulator to a left-handed configuration is both quick and simple. However this procedure MUST only be performed by an APEKS Authorized Service Technician

Available in yoke  configuration

Braided flexi-hoses are now standard on all models. These hoses are lighter weight, more flexible and more durable

Suitable for coldwater use

Compatible with EAN40 out of the box

XTX40 Octopus

The XTX40 Octopus pairs nicely to any Apeks regulator. It provides the same features and performance as the XTX40 second stage mentioned previously but comes with a high visibility yellow front cover and a 36" yellow hose.

  • The XTX purge buttons are large and easy to operate. A 2-stage progressive purge is used. Press the purge on the side for a lower flow rate, useful where more control is required such as filling lift bags etc, then press in the center for the full effect of the purge, i.e. when regulator clearing etc.

    Suitable for coldwater use.
  • Compatible with EAN40 out of the box.
  • Pneumatically-balanced second stage results in smooth, easy breathing
    The large venturi lever has a soft touch rubber grip, which makes it easier to locate and use. The lever reduces the amount of grit ingress and therefore resists any possible friction giving a smooth operation.
  • The 2nd stage is manufactured with active protection against infection as all molded parts are produced with an additive that kills MRSA, protects against E-Coli, bacteria and fungi, and is also very effective against viruses, mould, yeast and algae.
  • A silicone exhaust valve improves the breathing performance of the regulator.
  • The Comfo-bite™ mouthpiece virtually eliminates jaw-fatigue.
  • A heat exchanger (patented) which surrounds the valve mechanism, dissipates the cold caused by gas expansion while drawing in the warmth of the ambient water.
Apeks TEK Gauge

The Apeks TEK gauge is a high quality chrome plated Submersible Pressure Gauge (SPG) with a black face to help reduce glare and to preserve night vision in low light environments.

  • High quality chrome plated SPG
  • Black faced SPG with luminescent numbers and hand that glows in the dark when charged with a light.
  • The black face helps reduce glare and preserve night vision in low light environments i.e. inside a cave or wreck.
  • 0 – 360 bar / 0 – 5000 psi scale
  • Max working pressure 300 Bar/4350 psi
  • Tempered glass face
  • 52mm / 2" diameter face
