The high performance DGX Gears XTRA Regulator includes a balanced piston first stage together with a balanced and adjustable second stage that offers excellent quality, performance and value. This regulator package is assembled with a { 22 in | 56 cm } flex hose and also includes a free DIN regulator cap.

The DGX XTRA 1st stage is a balanced flow-through piston in a PFD chrome-plated brass body that provides constant and effortless airflow unaffected by depth, tank pressure, or breathing rate. Two opposing high pressure 7/16-inch ports allow the first stage to be positioned either up or down. Five high-flow low pressure 3/8-inch ports on a swivel turret maximize hose routing options. The fifth port on top of the turret offers an additional hose routing option that is popular for backmount manifolded double cylinder or sidemount configurations and is a good choice as both primary and backup first stage.

A spring insulating coating, body insulating bushing, anti-freeze cap, bigger body and cap thread all work in concert with the XTRA to improve cold-water performance. Anti-freeze protection radically increases breathing reliability when diving in the most extreme water temperatures. External intermediate pressure adjustment enables technicians to fine-tune performance quickly and easily. The DGX XTRA 1st stage comes standard with a 300-BAR DIN connector and is Nitrox Ready.

The DGX XTRA 2nd stage is a balanced adjustable second stage featuring metal components for light weight and increased resistance to freezing when diving in extreme conditions and reduced inhalation effort at varying depths and supply pressures. A diver-adjustable inhalation effort knob fine-tunes air delivery to suit changing depths, water conditions and diver preference. The ultra-comfortable orthodontic mouthpiece is easy to grip yet doesn’t inhibit airflow.

The DGX XTRA 2nd stage features nylon fiberglass design casing and diaphragm for breathing sensitivity, regardless of position in the water. A high-flow exhaust valve reduces exhalation for better overall breathing comfort. The venturi-Initiated vacuum assist dive/pre-dive switch reduces free flow in cold water or when used as an octopus.

Our recommended service interval is every two years or one hundred dives. See Product Attachments tab for service manuals. There is nothing unique about the DGX regulators in terms of service requirements and needs no special tools beyond those generic tools found on the typical regulator technicians bench. We sell the DGX Gears XTRA service parts kits direct to the public.

Is the DGX XTRA regulator a copy of the ScubaPro MK25/G250? In a word... "NO", although the XTRA appeals to the same target demographic of the diver looking for a top-shelf performance regulator, and also has a balanced piston type first stage with a balanced diaphragm downstream type second stage. To document the excellent performance of the XTRA, we take the extra step of bench testing every XTRA regulator on the industry standard ANSTI machine and including the serialized performance report with each regulator. The XTRA also includes the extra feature of an auto-closure on the first stage that shuts the DIN inlet when not engaged on the valve, potentially avoiding the accidental flooding of the first stage. The XTRA is priced a third less than comparable top-shelf regulators making it an excellent value, even before the extra bonus of free shipping. Further, Dive Gear Express believes the consumer has the "right-to-repair" and our policy is to make all service parts individually available for purchase without restriction.
