Apeks XTX40 Octopus
The Apeks XTX40 Octopus, designed to be paired with any Apeks regulator, is an innovative second stage construction that offers a great combination of stunning looks and amazing practicality.
Its reversible-design feature, along with a fully balanced valve, assists the APEKS Authorized Service Technician in an easy alternative hose routing from right side to the left side. Especially engineered for survival in cold water, it features a heat exchanger on the inlet and a metal valve barrel that help the cold to dissipate all around the surrounding water, making it easier for the diver to stay in the water for longer. Moreover, there is a Venturi control lever located at the housing’s side that allows a convenient control of the air flow inside the cylinder. This Venturi switch effectively directs the air to the anti-bacterial Comfo-bite™ mouthpiece and at the same time reduces the chances of free-flowing air.
The XTX 40 also comes equipped with a compact silicone exhaust valve that minimizes the chances of snagging and dragging, thereby making an improvement in the regulator’s breathing performance. Additionally, the UV-resistant braided flexi-hose is very lightweight and flexible, therefore, offers an improved burst pressure. Moreover, the bright yellow colour of the 36" hose, two-shot composite front cover and the trim offers high visibility even if the diver is deep under the water.
