Apeks WTX-D30 & WTX-D40 Wing

The Apeks WTX-D Single Cylinder Wings are narrow in design allowing a cylinder to nest deep inside them.

Single cylinder wings, often referred to as donuts, are oval shaped air cells or bladders that are not permanently attached to a harness. While single cylinder wings have their origins in the realm of technical diving, they are becoming very popular in the recreational community. Not only are these single cylinder wings streamlined, but due to their shape being a continuous loop, they are very stable underwater. There is no dramatic shift of air from left to right.

Apeks single cylinder wings are a smart design that allows a cylinder to nest deep inside them. These wings mate up nicely to the rest of the Apeks WTX collection of high quality harnesses, plates and accessories. They can be configured in multiple ways to match the type of diving that you do. As with the rest of the WTX collection, these single cylinder wings are built from the finest quality materials.

  • K style inflator positioned off-centre so as not to interfere with regulator 1st stage
  • Low profile 16” oval-shaped corrugated hose
  • Apeks Flex inflator hose
  • Safety cable to prevent hyper-extension
  • Low profile flat dump valve positioned in front, lower-left side
  • 2 large drain grommets
  • Centre mesh drain panel

Apeks Backplate

Available in 6061 Aluminium or 316 Stainless Steel.

4 each upper and lower slots accommodate nylon cylinder bands so a single cylinder can be strapped directly to the plate. Having a series of 4 slots provides lateral stability of the cylinder that traditional 2 slot plates cannot.

3 holes at the top of the plate offer a range of height adjustments for the buoyancy cells and the cylinders. In addition, a corresponding lower center slot allows for lower band bolts that are misaligned.

Upper and lower perimeter holes along either side and holes along the bottom allow for the mounting of accessories. 2" wide crotch strap slot.

  • Aluminium approx 753g
  • Stainless steel approx 2.2 kg
