XDEEP ZEOS WING SYSTEM
Through constant testing and evolution, the XDeep ZEOS single tank system is balanced to help achieve a flat and expert trim underwater while supporting the diver above the waves on the surface. The system comes complete with harness, single tank adapter, cam bands and backplate. It is based on a continuous loop no-break point harness system popular among DIR divers as it needs only be adjusted once for what the diver is wearing for a comfortable and reliable fit.
The XDeep ZEOS Single Tank Wing System elevates the classical form and function of DIR wings to a new level.
It's innovative design combines ruggedness and reliability to meet the needs of all divers, whether in beautiful blue waters, stunning emerald seas or crystal frozen arctic oceans.
Through technical design, constant testing and evolution, the Zeos is balanced to help achieve a flat and expert trim underwater while supporting the diver above the waves on the surface.
The system comes complete with a Zeos wing, Ali or Steel backplate with a harness and single tank adapter with cam bands.
XDeep Zeos Wing
XDeep Zeos Single Wing is made out of super resistant outer shell made from Cordura® 1100 dTEX so that your scuba gear will resist more and last longer. Inner bladder made from Nylon 440dTEX.
XDeep Zeos wings for single cylinder diving are available in two sizes: Zeos 38 or Zeos 28.
The Zeos 28 with 13Kg of lift provides females and adventurers with a smaller build or height with a great solution. The 28 is also suitable for warm water Ali tank diving.
The Zeos 38 has additional streamlined and balanced lift, providing 17Kg of upward thrust to divers looking for that extra reserve, but who still demand a neat and tidy configuration.
Too much lift can result in oversize and unwieldy wings, especially if you are not the world’s largest diver. Pick the wing that suits your own adventures.
Backplate and Harness
Choose between beautifully engineered steel or aluminium backplates.
The steel backplate eliminates the need for lead at the waist and enhances your balance and trim, especially in cold water conditions where extra weight is best distributed across your body.
The aluminium backplate works well in warm water diving where the additional weight is not needed or if you travel often to explore the wonders the world offers.
Single Tank Adapter
Single tank adapter with two cam bands included to secure all components together.
Not a fixed harness fan but still don't want breakpoints?

DIR REGULATOR SET - Apeks MTX-RC Long Hose Regulator Set
The Apeks MTX-RC Single Cylinder Long Hose Regulator Set is designed for the diver that prefers a long hose configuration on a single cylinder. It is also the perfect set-up for the recreational diver looking to transition into twinset diving in the future, as the addition of another first stage creates a twinset regulator configuration.
Combining rugged, military grade engineering with the super-smooth breathing experience that Apeks regulators are renowned for, the MTX-RC single cylinder set dives your way.
Featuring the same freeze-resistant technology enjoyed by the whole MTX-R range, the MTX-RC resists freeflows in even the coldest temperatures, while offering the user the additional flexibility to dial it out for a comfortable breathe in less extreme environments.
All this is achieved using an innovative first stage design that protects the regulator from freezing and a full set of user controls on the second stage to adjust the breathing performance based on the diver’s individual needs.
Includes a tactical style messenger bag to keep your regulators safe on your travels. Perfectly sized for a laptop, it’s also your new work bag!
Apeks MTX-RC 1st Stages
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.
- Satin plated brass body with heat exchanging ribs for maximum thermal performance.
- Break through, innovative over-moulded first-stage end cap and 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.
- Ribbed diaphragm clamp for improved heat exchange in cold water conditions.
- 5 x medium pressure ports, 4 mounted on a rotating turret for improved hose orientation
- 2 x angled high pressure ports for optimal hose routing and fitting of transmitters.
- Easy to grip DIN hand-wheel.
- Tested for Octopus use - EN250A to 60 metres cold water.
- Nitrox/Oxygen compatible – Up to 40% O2 outside the EU (European Union).
Apeks MTX-RC 2nd Stages
Oversize breathing effort adjuster makes adjustment easy in cold water whilst wearing gloves. Protective bumpers to protect the second stage from impacts and scratches in the most vulnerable places.
- Ergonomic and simple to use venturi lever.
- Large purge button.
- Reversible second stage for either a left or right hand gas supply configuration.
- A heat ex changer (patented) dissipates the cold caused by gas expansion while drawing in the warmth of the ambient water for a more comfortable breathe.
- Features an innovative Diver Changeable Exhaust system (DCE). The system gives the diver the ability to change from a small exhaust tee to a large exhaust tee. The regulator is supplied with both sets of exhaust tees.
- Comfo-bite mouthpiece
