Mares Carbon Octopus

The Mares Carbon Octopus is lightweight and perfect to fit your Mares regulator set. What makes this octopus so special is the carbon fibre material which is strong and lightweight, this material also has great thermal conductivity needed in a octopus. The Bypass Tube and the Vortex Assisted Design (VAD) provides smooth breathing by delivering gas more directly to your mouthpiece. A mesh grid front cover allows water to pass through and also prevents strong water movement from affecting the octopus, so this octopus will not freeflow even when swimming against a strong current.

Thanks to this octopus being so lightweight it is perfect for taking on a diving holiday, especially if you are diving with buddies as a octopus is a key safety piece of equipment when diving in groups. This octopus is highly visible so a diver or buddy can easily locate it and use it when needed, even in low light water conditions.

Key Benefits

  • Vortex Assisted Design (VAD) - The air bypass tube conveys air to the mouthpiece creating a swirling vortex with a low pressure area in the centre that keeps the diaphragm down during inhalation, for very sensitive and easy breathing at all depths. This feature is to make sure that the octopus deliver safety, performance and reliability.
  • Carbon Technology - The use of the advanced carbon technology is what makes this octopus so lightweight. This material also has mechanical resistance and makes this octopus perfect for meeting the needs of the most demanding divers, and can be used by all those who require a lightweight octopus. This technology also provides natural breathing and reduces the chance of a dry mouth.
  • Superflex Hose - The highly visible superflex hose is flexible and extremely easy to see in even the worst lighted water. These high visible hose is exceptionally soft and very lightweight which provides maximum freedom of movement. The hose being highly visible is a very important feature for an octopus as it is easy to see for divers and their buddy.
  • Lightweight - Thanks to the Carbon Technology and the lightweight highly visible superflex hose this octopus is 65% lighter than a metal second stage. This is an important feature as a diver doesn't want to carry around a heavy octopus. This is a great feature which makes this octopus great for travelling.
