Dive in total comfort thanks to the Aqua Lung Axiom i3's Wrapture™ harness system which allows you to stand up straight comfortably while the cylinder remains perfectly vertical and pulled in close. Using patented swivel shoulder buckles and a proprietary, ultra-thin back plate, the Wrapture system provides unsurpassed comfort and stability; it prevents the BCD from “riding-up” on the surface, while out of the water it keeps the cylinder close to your center of gravity and transfers the weight to your hips. An adjustable chest strap can be raised or lowered on a rail system, this not only ensures a good fit but also keeps straps from running across top of a drysuit valve.
Introducing Aqua Lung's patented i3 Control System, this provides an easy, one-touch control for inflation and deflation. Eliminating the need for a traditional inflator that dangles at the end of a corrugated hose, the i3 system is simple and intuitive - simply lift up on the lever to inflate and push down on the same lever to dump air. What’s more, when you push the lever down, all the dump valves, upper and lower, open at the same time! An oral inflator runs off the right lobe instead of the corrugated hose, providing a more streamlining to the BCD.
The Axiom comes with Aqua Lung's patented SureLock II Mechanical Weight Release System, this provides a safe and simple way to add and remove additional weight, removing the need to thread extra weights onto your weight belt. With Surelock II you just insert the weight into the designated sockets and you're ready to go. When inserting weight you will hear an audible “click” that lets you know the weight is fully secured into place, to remove the weight you just use the single-pull release system. It's fast, easy, simple and safe.
Switching cylinders has never been easier with the Axiom i3 and best of all, you don’t have to worry about pinching your fingers with Aqua Lung's innovative 'GripLock' finger saver feature. Predetermined détente settings make set-up simple, no adjustments are necessary when switching cylinders of the same diameter.
The Axiom i3 comes with plenty of equipment storage space; There are two large, easy-to-access, utility pockets on either side of the BCD which are secured with zippers and one pocket without a zipper. Fixed pockets on the tank band enable you to increase weight capacity for better trim in the water. Knife attachment points on the left lobe providing easy access to the knife (knife not included) or other accessories. The Wave also includes a small security pocket which can be found on the flap of a larger drop-down pocket.
Offering superb comfort, the innovative GripLock™ tank band, lots of storage space and the SureLock integrated weight system, the Axiom i3 will be the new standard for recreational divers.
