    Apeks XTX200 Reg & XTX50 Octo Package

    With an improved design and an improved performance, the XTX200 is the flagship regulator in the Apeks range. Advanced features like the Diver Changeable Exhaust system (DCE) gives the diver the ability to change from a small exhaust tee to a large exhaust tee as the regulator is supplied with both sets of exhaust tees. It can be converted from a right-handed hose configuration to a left-handed one performed in a simple way by an Apeks technician. The Apek XTX Regulator range is Nitrox compatible up to 40%.

    The Apeks XTX 50 Octopus is an incredibly reliable balanced second stage designed for use in all conditions with Apeks regulators gaining particular respect for the cold water abilities. It features a fully balanced valve with a reversible quality, allowing the swap of the second stage from right to left for alternative hose routing. Control over the flow of air inside the second stage is supported by a venturi switch, diverting air back towards the diaphragm to help reduce the risks of freeflowing or directing air to the mouthpiece for finest performance.

    Understanding Apex Regulators

    Apeks regulators are some of the most popular on the market (and certainly our biggest seller!). Whether you’re a UK diver tackling icey-cold conditions or a tropical undersea explorer, Apeks regs are known for their uncompromising reliability, performance and engineering.

    As a UK born brand, Apeks have over 30 years of experience developing regulators for our truly brutal conditions and there’s a good reason why they’re seen so often among experienced divers.

    Whether you’re looking for your first reg on a tight budget or an experienced diver looking to enjoy the performance of a top-level regulator it’s worth knowing what you’re getting for your money and the differences between the various models in Apeks’ range.

    Technology

    What goes into an Apeks Regulator? As a leading brand in diving technology, Apeks use a host of advanced technologies to deliver impressive performance.

    Overbalanced Diaphragm Design

    If you intend to take on seriously deep water an overbalanced first stage is a blessing. When you descend the ambient pressure around you compresses your gas/air, restricting flow between your first stage and second stage and making breathing more difficult. The deeper you go, the greater this effect.

    While all regulators counteract this effect to some degree by gradually increasing the rate of pressure through your hoses, overbalanced regulators increase the rate of inter-stage pressure at a much greater rate than normal first stage designs ensuring breathing is easy no matter the depth you’re diving at.

    The over-balanced diaphragm design is found on Apeks Tungsten, XTX200, XTX100, XTX50, XTX40 and XTX50/DS4 first stages.

    Environmental Dry Sealing System

    Nearly all Apeks regulators are environmentally sealed.

    Firstly, this prevents ice buildup on the main spring that can occur in extremely cold water and cause freeflow (when your regulator ‘freezes’ open, wasting air).

    Secondly, the seal prevents contaminants like silt or microbes from entering the system and potentially harming you. For the same reason, the internals of the dry sealed regulators require less regular maintenance, though you should always spend a bit of time cleaning your gear properly after every dive.

    ‘Medium Pressure’ Ports

    Apeks use the term ‘Medium Pressure’ to describe intermediate pressure or low pressure ports. This is a historical throwback, but they’re exactly the same.

    Reversible Design

    Apeks XTX range of regulators are reversible allowing you to route your hoses from either the right or left side of the second stage to suit your preference. Similarly, the venturi switch and exhaust is also reversible.

    Diver Changeable Exhaust System.

    XTX regulators feature the Diver Changeable Exhaust (DCE) system which offers users the choice of either a compact, light-weight exhaust tee on the second stage or a wider exhaust. The wider exhaust prevents bubble interference which is ideal for underwater photographers!

    The Apeks Regulator Line-Up

    While you can buy both the Apeks first and second stages individually, most divers will want to purchase a full set as this offers the best value for money.

    All of Apeks’ ATX, XTX and MTX regulators are environmentally sealed and overbalanced making them suitable for diving in sub 10*C conditions.

    The Apeks Regulator Line-Up

    While you can buy both the Apeks first and second stages individually, most divers will want to purchase a full set as this offers the best value for money.

    All of Apeks’ ATX, XTX and MTX regulators are environmentally sealed and overbalanced making them suitable for diving in sub 10*C conditions.

    Apeks ATX

    • First Stage: DS4

    • Second Stage: ATX40

    Apeks entry level, sealed, cold-water regulator, the ATX offers straightforward, reliable performance that’s ready for UK diving. The ATX is sold with the ever reliable DS4 first stage. While it’s nothing flashy, it features 1 low pressure port and 4 high pressure ports which should offer enough flexibility for beginner and experienced divers alike.

    The only real downside is the slightly bulky nature of the second stage and lack of adjustability that Apeks’ more expensive offerings offer.

    Apeks XTX40

    • First Stage: DST

    • Second Stage  XTX40

    The XTX40 steps up from where the ATX leaves off. Paired with the DST first Stage the combo delivers a tangible step-up in performance at an affordable price. The more up to date XTX40 second stage provides noticeably improved breathing over the ATX40, as well as being lighter. The DST second stage provides 2 low pressure and 4 high pressure ports with a swivel turret which provides a whole lot more flexibility. Lastly, the second stage is rated more highly for use at extreme depths than their entry level models, though in reality first stages like the DS4 are going to function equally well for most dives!


    Apeks XTX50

    • First Stage: DST

    • Second Stage XTX50

    The XTX50 is our recommendation for most divers as it offers the best between cost and features. The second stage is the same as the XTX40 with addition of a diver adjustable breathing resistance control which we think is worth the extra small outlay. The XTX50 + DST combo is probably Apeks’ best seller for good reason. Its dependable, high performing and feature rich, it’s everything you could ask for in a regulator without spending big bucks.

    Apeks XTX100

    • First Stage: FST

    • Second Stage: XTX100

    Internally, the XTX50, XTX100 and XTX200 second stages are exactly the same. However the  XTX100 + XTX200 second stages are constructed using lighter, higher quality ,materials which should make them more hard wearing in the long run. It’s not necessary, but when considering your purchase as a long term investment it might be worth thinking about.

    The Apeks FST first stage is a serious bit of a kit. Not just a beautiful piece of engineering, it offers typically flawless Apeks’ performance. Angled ports provide improved routing for your hoses which can be extra handy for keeping them tamed.

    Apeks XTX200

    • First Stage: FSR

    • Second Stage XTX200

    The XTX second stage features the same spec as the XTX100 model, with a slightly upgraded body.

    The FSR Second stage offers similar features to the FST first stage but with a removable ARCAP Valve seat which should allow you to keep using the FSR for forever and a day, if you’re looking for a no holds-barred reg the XTX200 might be the way to go.

    Apeks Tungsten XTX

    • First Stage: Tungsten FSR

    • Second Stage: Tungsten XTX200

    Exactly the same as the XTX200, but with a nuclear bomb-proof PVD coating made from Titanium, Zirconium and Chromium that makes the Tungsten XTX nearly indestructible. It might be a touch over the top - but if you’re looking for a beautiful piece of dive engineering that will perform flawlessly anywhere and double as an art piece when you’re out of the water...get the Tungsten XTX.

    Apeks MTX-R

    • First Stage: MTX-R

    • Second Stage: MTX-R

    Based on the Apeks’ military grade MTX regulator, the MTX R is an incredible piece of engineering. We’ll be honest, for most of you this level of tech simply isn’t necessary. However, if you’re looking for the toughest regulator on the market that shrugs off near zero degrees condition there simply aren’t any options that even get near the MTX-R.

    Apeks XL4

    • First Stage: XL4

    • Second Stage: DB4

    The XL4 is the bridge between Apeks super-light ‘Flight’ travel reg and their best-selling XTX series regs. Tough as a tank, cold-water ready and comfortably light, the XL4 is remarkably good and has been cutting a fine figure, receiving top marks across the board from a host of reviewers and we think if you can afford it, it should be the go-to regulator if you dive a variety of environments and like to travel!

    Warm Water & Travel Regulators Regulators

    Unlike the rest of Apeks’ range which are designed to laugh off the harshest conditions, their warm water regulators are designed for more pleasant climes - while this might make them less than ideal for diving off the coast of Scotland, these regulators offer their own advantages - we’ve separated them from Apeks’ mainstream options for this reason.

    Apeks Flight

    • First Stage: Flight

    • Second Stage: Flight

    When the Flight was released to the world it was the lightest regulator on the market by a serious margin and it’s still up there. The hint is in the name really: Flight. If you’re a regular jetsetter who dives in warmer climates (anything above 10*c) the Flight is a great option.

    Apeks AT

    • First Stage: US4

    • Second Stage: AT

    Apeks entry level offering displays the brands usual bulletproof build-quality and impressive breathing despite the asking price. While it’s neither feature rich nor suitable for cold water diving, but if you’re on a budget and dive in pleasant conditions, it's still a great place to start for a beginner.
