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 fit nicely with 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

- Low profile flat dump valve positioned in front, lower-left side
- 2 large drain grommets

Steel or Ali Backplate
Apeks backplates are available in stainless steel or aluminium.
Four each upper and lower slots accommodate nylon cylinder cam bands so a single cylinder can be strapped directly to the plate. A series of 4 slots provides lateral stability of the cylinder that traditional two-slot plates cannot.
Three holes at the top of the Apeks Backplate offer a range of height adjustments for the wings and the cylinders. In addition, a corresponding lower centre slot allows for misaligned lower band bolts.
Upper and lower perimeter holes along either side and holes along the bottom allow for accessories mounting. 2" wide crotch strap slot.
