The package comes completely assembled by Dive Gear Express with our premium accessories and is ready to dive anywhere in the world.

The Apeks DST first stage is a unique over-balanced, diaphragm design - as the diver descends, the over-balancing feature allows the intermediate pressure gas in the hose to increase at a rate faster than ambient resulting in superb performance at extreme depths. The polished chrome plated body has two standard high pressure 7/16-inch ports and four standard high-flow low pressure 3/8-inch ports mounted on a swivel turret. An environmental seal keeps water out of the main spring chamber thus preventing ice buildup and keeping silt and contamination out. The Apeks DST first stage comes standard with a DIN connector and the package includes a Yoke-to-DIN adapter.

The Apeks XTX50 second stage is a pneumatically-balanced design that results in smooth, easy breathing. The XTX50 purge button is large and easy to operate and features two-step progressive operation. Press the purge on the side for a lower flow rate, useful where more control is required such as filling lift bags, then press in the center for the full effect of the purge such as when clearing water. The large venturi lever has a soft touch rubber grip, which makes it easier to locate and use. Easy-to-grip opening effort adjustment knob keeps the diver in control. A heat exchanger which surrounds the valve mechanism, dissipates the cold caused by gas expansion while drawing in the warmth of the ambient water. The popular Apeks Comfo-biteā„¢ mouthpiece by Aqualung greatly reduces jaw fatigue.

Apeks brand regulators include a Limited Lifetime Warranty as long as they are inspected or serviced annually by an AQUALUNG AMERICA Authorized Dealer. This warranty covers the original owner against defects in parts or workmanship for the lifetime of the regulator and includes the Free-Parts-For-Life Program as outlined on their website.

Backup Second Stages

Traditionally, the backup second stage regulator has been a lower-performance lower-cost unbalanced design because it was thought to be less likely to free flow and less prone to problems. However, experience has demonstrated concerns with using a lower performance regulator under conditions that forced a switch to the backup, and most experienced divers are now choosing identical high-performance backup and primary regulators. Our high-performance balanced second stages are very resistant to free flow when it has the venturi setting on pre-dive and the adjustment knob set low. Field experience has shown our regulators to be quite trouble-free as well.
