New from XDeep is the Hydros DIR System. This innovative tech diving wing has been researched and developed over a number of years and refinement to create a system which exceeds every one of your needs. As with anything, the very best is demanded by dives and the Hydros delivers on all of its promises. A true modern classic, it takes the past and brings it to the modern day.

The Hydros is very reminiscent of older BCDs, and you would be forgiven to believe it is just another BCD to fill the shelf, but that is not the case. The Hydros takes what makes a classic BCD so great and builds on it to take itself to a new level of diving excellence. Even the smallest elements of the BCD have been examined and refined to ensure it is providing the most enhanced performance possible. Carefully calculated geometry has allowed all of these elements to be built to improve your stability and elevate your experience.

New from XDeep is the Hydros DIR System. This innovative tech diving wing has been researched and developed over a number of years and refinement to create a system which exceeds every one of your needs. As with anything, the very best is demanded by dives and the Hydros delivers on all of its promises. A true modern classic, it takes the past and brings it to the modern day.

The Hydros is very reminiscent of older BCDs, and you would be forgiven to believe it is just another BCD to fill the shelf, but that is not the case. The Hydros takes what makes a classic BCD so great and builds on it to take itself to a new level of diving excellence. Even the smallest elements of the BCD have been examined and refined to ensure it is providing the most enhanced performance possible. Carefully calculated geometry has allowed all of these elements to be built to improve your stability and elevate your experience.

One of the first elements XDeep targeted with the Hydros is ‘dead zones’ which trap air during a dive. These dead zones have a negative impact on drag and buoyancy during a dive and through careful design they have managed to eliminate these. This provides your with a larger sense of stability during a dive. The Hydros also gives you unparalleled access to your valves thanks to a great top wing design. This means that whether you are an experienced diver or new to the field, you will always feel safe and secure.

One of the elements of technical dives that newcomers find most difficult is achieving a perfect and flat trim. This can still be a pain for even the most experienced technical divers, who realistically want their equipment to help them on the front, not be something they compensate for. The Hydros has your back on this front (quite literally), helping you to achieve flat trim quickly and consistently. The BCD has been designed to ensure that the centre of gravity in your twinset pairs identically to the centre of buoyancy on the wing. So if you have any change in inflation level of the wing or the remaining cylinder pressure, your trim will remain unaffected.
 
Valve management is another key area that XDeep targeted when designing the Hydros. A major issue when diving is a flap of a wing slowing you down when responding to a problem on your rig. The reduced volume of the wing, specifically in the valve area and the area which you want to route your hoses with, means that your shutdowns and valve management will be improved. This makes it super easy to make sure you system is always neat, and most importantly safe.

The innovative design doesn’t stop there, and the Hydros works to ensure that you are covered at the surface too. The clever design ensures that most of your wing remains underwater while you are at the surface, this increases the amount of natural buoyancy the BCD is using. So you are held higher out of the water with your head out of the way of any waves. This makes your wait for your pickup a lot more enjoyable to say the least.

If you’re already set on the Hydros as the new BCD for you, there is one important choice to make, and it all revolves around your backplate. There are two different options: a stainless steel backplate, or an aluminium one. The choice between the two is made easily by what you’re looking for as a diver. The much more lightweight aluminium backplate weighs in at almost 2kg lighter than its steel counterpart. This makes it much more useful for a travelling diver who is looking to keep weight down to avoid baggage costs. Unfortunately this means it does sacrifice some longevity against the steel version but is still more than ready for years of rugged diving. The stainless steel backplate is considerably heavier, meaning the sturdy high quality stainless steel is prepared for even the most rugged diver. It’s not perfect if you travel a lot with your BCD as the weight is considerably more, but again the choice is made by you as an individual.
