This Atomic ST1 is construction from a mixture of stainless steel and Titanium parts to produce a regulator that is not only one of the best breathing regulator on the market, but environmentally friendly as well.

The fist stage is contructed from stainless steel which has pretty much the same corrosion resistance properties as titanium, but at a lower price. This also illuminate the need to quote the exterior with chrome, which can be harmful to the environment.

The Atomic B2 Regulator is pretty much similar to the ST1, however it is constructed from Chrome plated brass. This makes the regulator more affordable, but still has the ability to deliver the top permanence of its more expensive counterparts.

The only draw back is that chrome can easily be chipped exposing the brass to the elements and corrosion.
