The XTX40 Octopus provides the same features and performance as the XTX40 second stage and includes left/right reversibility. It comes with a high visibility yellow front cover and a 36" yellow hose. Suitable for cold water (below 10 C / 50 F).
The XTX purge buttons are large and easy to operate. A 2-stage progressive purge is used - press the vent on the side to get a lower flow rate, useful where more control is required such as filling lift bags etc, then press in the center to get the full effect of the purge ie. when the regulator clearing etc.
Can be converted from a right-handed hose configuration to a left-handed one. The process of changing the regulator to a left-hand configuration is both quick and simple. However, this procedure must ONLY be performed by an APEKS authorized service technician.
Braided flexi hoses are now standard on all models. These hoses are lighter, more flexible and more durable.
Suitable for cold water use (below 10 C / 50 F).
Compatible with EAN40 out of the box.
Pneumatically balanced second stage results in smooth, easy breathing.
The large venturi handle has a soft touch rubber grip which makes it easier to locate and use. The handle reduces the amount of grain penetration and therefore resists any possible friction, providing smooth operation.
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 breathability of the regulator.
The Comfo-bite™ mouthpiece virtually eliminates jaw fatigue.
