60:Second ScubaLab: SCUBAPRO Seawing Nova Full Foot [Video]
SCUBAPRO’s Chromis dive computer makes the most of its watch-sized display. It has large numerical readouts and a mode indicator at the right of the screen. This makes it easy for divers to find important information at a glance. Scuba, gauge, apnea, swim and watch modes are all programmed using a four-button interface. Divers can program nitrox mixes between 21 and 100 percent and select one of five micro bubble levels for diving more conservatively.
SCUBAPRO's EverFlex 5/4 wetsuit uses high-stretch material and smart features to balance flexibility with warmth. Thicker 5mm neoprene is employed in the torso to keep the core warm and is excellent for moderate to cool waters. Thinner 4mm material allows easier movement in the arms and legs, which are also pre-shaped for a natural fit. Ankle zippers make the suit faster to don. The main rear zipper includes a thick neoprene seal, which keeps out water and serves as a cushion against heavy gear.
SCUBAPRO’s Equator is a travel-friendly BC built for the rigors of the road and frequent diving. Its jacket-style design provides just the right amount of lift and its small backpack allows fold up compact storage.
A twin-lens mask with a special skirt, the Synergy combines soft, high-grade silicone with a tapered design. It balances support and flexibility to provide a perfect fit for almost any face.
The Everflex C-Zip brings surfing style and function to scuba divers. High-stretch neoprene provides a flexible, easy swimming fit as well as the warmth multiple-dive days require.
SCUBAPRO’s balanced diaphragm first-stage MK 11 is engineered to prevent the flow of cold or polluted water into the regulator, yet provide easy airflow regardless of tank pressure. New for this year, the MK 11 is now forged, making for a lighter-weight yet just as durable version of this five-year-old regulator design. The compact second stage features SCUBAPRO’s OFD, Optimal Flow Design, an improvement over traditional downstream valves. At the same time, diver-adjustable VIVA and inhalation controls make for a truly personalized breathing effort.
A stellar, ultrahigh airflow performer, SCUBAPRO’s MK25 smoked the ANSTI breathing machine when it was tested by ScubaLab. In fact, the more we stressed this reg, even down to extreme test depths, the better it performed. It is a balanced piston design with five low-pressure ports mounted on a swivel turret. The sharp-looking A700 second is now available in a new Black Tech version with a titanium nitride PVD coating that makes it more rugged, scratch-resistant and even more durable.
SCUBAPRO has designed the surprisingly comfortable Form Tek harness for double-tank configurations, though it can be converted for single-tank use.
A travel-ready, full-featured BC
