MK25 First Stage

Lets take a closer look at the Scubapro MK25 First Stage

Balanced Flow-Through Piston - The Mk25 first stage utilizes a balanced flow-through piston, which delivers significantly more air to the second stage than diaphragm first stage, while at the same time unaffected by depth and changing tank pressure. You will benefits from a smoother breathing regulator during the ascent or deco stop. This is the reason why balanced piston first stages are the first choice of demanding sport divers and professionals.

Chrome plated brass body - The first stage is also constructed from brass and plated with marine grade chrome, making the regulator corrosion resistant and durable. You should have this regulator for many years to come

Two Opposite High Pressure Ports - The MK25 also has two opposite high pressure ports. This allows you to position the first stage either pointing up or down, because it hast a High Pressure port on the right and left side. The ability to customize how you would like to mount the regulator to the cylinder increases the freedom of movement for your neck and head

Five Low Pressure Ports- For ultimate freedom in arranging your low pressure hoses, the MK25 has five low pressure ports on a swiveling turret (4 on the side, and 1 on top), which allows for 360 degree swivel of hoses. The swiveling turret helps take the tension out of the low pressure hoses, which in turn reduces Jaw fatigue.

Externally adjustable intermediate pressure- Allows authorized SCUBAPRO service technicians to quickly fine tune or make adjustments after maintenance without the need to disassemble the first stage.

Cold water: Anti-Freeze protection- If you are a cold water diver, this Scubapro model comes standard with an insulating system to prevent the first stage from malfunctioning and/or freezing in colder water.

Air balanced valve The Scubapro S600 second stage uses a balance valve system, this system offset the force of air entering the second stage, resulting in reduce string tension and reduce inhalation efforts. Because of this the S600 will allow you to breath effortlessly in any position, weather upside down, face up, side ways etc.

Diver-adjustable inhalation effortYou will be able to fine tune your breathing efforts with the diver adjustable inhalation knob. The knob is very accessible and can be turned easily, even while wearing tick gloves. To prevent free flow when facing currents, in cold waters, when diving in a head-down position or when using a sea-scooter you will need to adjust your inhalation efforts.

Diver-adjustable Venturi-Initiated Vacuum Assist (VIVA)- Air entering the second stage forms a vortex which intern pull the diaphragm down aiding in your inhalation efforts. However, on the surface this can cause the second stage to free flow. The Diver - Adjustable Venturi switch in the minimum position reduces Free flow on the surface, while in the max position it allows the regulator to deliver optimum performance.
