The Apeks XL4 regulator is a compact and lightweight regulator suitable for diving in all environments, including cold water locations. Its design and low weight help reduce jaw fatigue on long dives.

It also makes an ideal stage regulator, perfect for the technical exploration diver with a large amount of equipment.

Weighing in at a tiny 905g (DIN version), the XL4 is the lightest ever cold-water regulator produced by Apeks. Light on weight doesn’t mean light on features though. This compact regulator includes our latest cold-water innovation, an over-moulded first stage endcap that reduces ice build-up around the first stage. This technology greatly reduces the risk of a free flow in low temperatures. Cold water performance is further improved by heat exchangers on the first and second stage.

Set includes:

1 x Apeks XL4 First Stage
1 x Apeks XL4 Second Stage
1 x Apeks Flexi 29" Regulator Hose
1 x Apeks XL4 Octopus with octopus hose

 

Apeks XL4 Regulator Set

Ideal for technical divers looking to reduce the weight of their setup, the XL4 can also be used as a neat and compact regulator for stage cylinders, perfect for the technical exploration diver with a large amount of equipment. The XL4 is a high-performance option for divers serious about weight savings.

Apeks XL4 Regulator 2nd StageAPEKS XL4 SECOND STAGE:

Compact and lightweight Second Stage improves comfort and helps reduce jaw fatigue on long  duration dives.

High performance pneumatically balanced lever operated poppet valve. Large, over moulded self flushing and controllable purge button. Ergonomic Venturi lever is easy to use and locate.

Flexible nylon braided hose has better cold water performance than traditional rubber hose. Standard metallic hose connection for interchangeability.

Comfo bite mouthpiece has a unique bridge that fits across the upper palate and does not  require bite pressure to stay in place. Reuseable mouthpiece clip makes it simple to change mouthpieces in the field.

Durable and flexible rubber exhaust tee provides excellent bubble diversion.

Apeks XL4 RegulatorAPEKS XL4 FIRST STAGE:

Break through, innovative over moulded first stage endcap & environmental diaphragm helps prevent ice build up that can cause first stage free flow in extreme circumstances. Also protects the first stage from impact damage.

Compact machined 1st stage based on the expedition tested Apeks DS4 platform.

Large surface area heat exchanger diaphragm clamp helps increase the gas temperature inside the 1st stage, resulting in improved cold water performance.

Unique over balanced diaphragm design as the diver descends, the over balancing feature allows the medium pressure gas in the hose to increase at a faster rate than ambient. This results in superior performance at depth.

APEKS XL4 OCTOPUS:

The Apeks XL4 Octopus is compact and lightweight, improving comfort and reducing jaw fatigue on long duration dives.

The second stage boats a high performance pneumatically balanced lever operated poppet valve, a large over moulded self flushing and controllable purge button and an easy to use and locate ergonomic venturi lever.

Add optional console:

You can add an optional console including pressure gauge and high pressure hose to your Apeks regulator set. The most popular console is the 1 gauge SPG.

The 3 console version has both these and a compass on the back blending three units together in one console. Details of these are listed underneath.

Apeks Consoles

Apeks SPG + HP Hose

The Apeks SPG dial face is designed with clarity in mind by being uncluttered, with large black figures on a luminous background giving a long phosphorescent effect. This makes viewing as easy as possible, even in poor visibility conditions. Comes with rubber protective housing and attached hose. Hose is 30 inches from 1st stage to housing, appx. 32 inches to the SPG link within the housing.
    •    The gauge case is made from nickel plated brass
    •    The dial window is made of highly shock resistant material (anti-splinter polycarbonate)
    •    A specially designed housing protects the gauge and HP hose fitting from accidental damage
    •    A large loop area designed into the housing allows for easy attachment.
    •    There is an over-pressure capsule fitted in the back of the module to prevent the screen from exploding in the unlikely event of the internal mechanism failing.

Apeks 2 Console + HP Hose

All of the above PLUS:
    •    Dials have a long phosphorescent effect for better reading in poor visibility conditions
    •    There are 2 attachment areas integrated into the design for position flexibility
    •    This may be a compact design but the displays are vivid and clear - perfect for diving. For example, the depth gauge spreads the first half of the scale and in total shows a range down to 7m (230’)
    •    Depth gauge has resettable max depth indicator

Apeks 3 Console + HP Hose
All of the above PLUS:
    •    Compass at back of console
    •    The compass ratchet bezel is robust and can be rotated with ease even with thick neoprene gloves
