Pioneer Buoyancy Compensators are specifically designed for single tank use, facilitating streamlining and diving ease with the our standards-setting narrow wing design.
Specially designed buoyancy incorporates a built-in single tank adaptor welded into the "backbone" of the Pioneer wing No more separate pieces-- wings now rest inches closer to the diver. Ultimate streamlining and convenience Pioneer Buoyancy Compensators are specifically designed for single tank use, facilitating streamlining and diving ease through our unique narrow wing design
Halcyon Pioneer wings incorporate an integrated single tank mounting system, eliminating the need for a separate single tank adapter (patent pending). This unique feature, available only from Halcyon, is the ultimate low profile single tank system for recreational diving or travel. Three different lift capacities maximize comfort and streamlining while accounting for various buoyancy requirements that result from differences in tank size, exposure protection, or equipmet requirements.
Pioneer 27 Wings
The immensely popular 27 lbs. wing is ideally suited for diving in tropical to temperate waters where moderate exposure protection and neutrally buoyant tanks are commonly used. The 27 lbs. wing utilizes a circular buoyancy tube to prevent air from being trapped in one side of the wing.
Pioneer 36 and 45 Wings
The 36 lbs. wing is designed for use in cold water where heavy exposure protection with steel cylinders is the norm. Bellowed side panels on the 36 lbs. wing increase lift at the waist, improving trim for those wearing heavy weight belts. Like the 27 lbs. wing, the 36 lbs. wing also features a circular buoyancy tube for ultimate stability in the water.
The Pioneer 45 wing is specifically designed for extreme cold water use or where lift must be capable of offsetting unusual amounts of applied ballast. This system is not recommended for typical recreational diving.
All Halcyon wings now come with our newly designed precision-flow inflator. The internal components and buttons are 316 stainless steel. Halcyon's inflator provides a controlled low-volume air flow to allow the diver to fine tune their buoyancy and resist freezing in extremely cold conditions. The Halcyon inflator is another Halcyon innovation that will only be found on Eclipse, Pioneer, and Explorer wings.
