Mares Epic 82X PVD regulator
To make one of the best performing regulators, Mares combined technology and advancements from its predecessors and came up with the EPIC 82X
The 82x PVD 1st stage has a unique swivel turret, helping hose routing and an AST dry valve, this innovation stops water from entering the first stage.
Epic 2nd Stage
The Epic second stage has the Mares bypass tube that controls the airflow into the 2nd stage, warming it and preventing fluttering.
You now have two adjustments on the Epic for airflow-
The first being the Twin Power System where you can adjust the amount of gas delivered to you, with a normal and supercharged + setting.
The 2nd adjustment is for breathing resistance and how hard or easy it is, to open the valve when you breathe in.
The purge button on the front, is wide and hinged- very easy to use and control.
The hinged mechanism allows you to control exactly, how much gas will purge and how strong the flow.
82x 1st Stage
The 82x first stage with 5 low pressure ports, 4 of which can rotate ( This is the first swivel turret from Mares) so you can better control the angle of your hoses even in the water.
AST stands for Auto Sealing Technology.
When unpressurised the 82x has a spring loaded plug to seal the inlet to keep water and dust out of the 1st stage during storage and cleaning.
