Product Description

The Lightest Regulator in the World

 

Apeks is known throughout the world for dive equipment of quality, craftsmanship and durability. Due to innovative design and the use of advanced materials, Flight regulators meet our high standards. They are tough, reliable and strong enough to cope with the demands and rigours of travelling. They are the most compact Apeks regulators ever made – small yet fully loaded with high performance and comfort.

Flight has been designed primarily for the travel diver. If you plan to dive mainly in colder waters below 10°C then we would recommend the Apeks XTX range which has been specifi cally designed for more extreme cold water diving. Flight comes into its own and excels as the perfect travel companion. As the lightest regulator in the world and the most compact regulator Apeks has ever made it is perfect for those exotic dive destinations. But using insulation techniques and advanced materials, Flight is also suitable for diving in waters as cold as 10°C. The area where a normal regulator 1st stage freezes is protected and insulated which reduces the freezing effect and this helps prevent freefl ows. The insulation effect is also evident in Flight’s 2nd stage.           

Apeks Flight is lighter than any other comparable regulator made by any other manufacturer in the world. Our Design and Engineering Team have produced this revolutionary regulator using advanced composite materials selected for their optimum strength to weight ratio.

Components in both the 1st and 2nd stages are made from reinforced material specifically developed for the manufacture of technical components. It is strong, not affected by water or extreme ranges of temperature, has good dimensional stability, an excellent resistance to chemicals and does not deform. The perfect material for regulator parts. This Hi-Tech material is also used in “under-bonnet” components at the cutting edge of the motor industry due to its proven strength and resilience actually replacing many steel and brass parts.         

 

Breathe Performance

Apeks Flight offers a silky smooth easy breathe, enhancing the pleasure of your dive. It was never intended that Flight replaces our world beating XTX regulators favoured by many professional and serious sport divers all over the world. Flight is a mid-range regulator ideal for transportation and travel to meet most divers’ needs. For the compact size of this regulator the breathe performance is exceptional.

 

Flight – Tested Beyond Limits

Over one million breathing cycles prove its robustness and reliability. Rigorous and thorough impact tests have proven Flight beyond the limits any divers would ever experience. Extensive fatigue testing has been carried out to prove Flight’s capability.
