About Apeks Exotec Buoyancy Compensator

The Apeks Exotec BCD is a revolution in diving comfort, functionality and seductive engineering design. The ethos behind Exotec is the synthesis of equipment and diver. Created to fit like no other BCD and flow with the natural movement of the diver's body, through the innovative BioReact articulation. Constructed with the usual, exacting Apeks build quality, the Exotec is a paradigm of form and function. BioReact articulating waist system for maximum comfort and freedom of movement. GripTek fabric keeps the BCD is place both on the surface and underwater. The bladder is constructed from super-tough Armoguard slick skin for increased abrasion resistance, faster drying and have a reduced risk of bacterial growth due to the slick surface.

Anodized aluminum hardware is both strong and lightweight. G hook chest strap and tank retainer allow for 1 handed simple operation. 3 position height adjustable anodized aluminum backplate allows for optimum fit. Adjustable waist and shoulders. 2 large pockets can be folded up flat when not in use to reduce drag. Wrapture Harness System: Using patented swivel shoulder buckles and a proprietary, ultra-thin back plate, the Wrapture provides unsurpassed comfort and stability. Wrapture prevents the BC from riding-up on the surface. Out of the water, the Wrapture keeps the cylinder close to your center of gravity and transfers the weight to your hips. The result is the ability to stand up straight with a cylinder that is perfectly vertical.

Because of the multiple size settings at the top of the shoulders, as well as either side of the waistband, a custom fit can be achieved through any one of 3 sizes. SureLock II Mechanical Weight Release System (patented), provides a safe, single-pull release. Inserting weight is as simple as insert and click. With SureLock, your weights are secure in the BC. Once engaged, the only way to release the weight is to pull on the handle. Complete system weight capacity is 40 lbs (18.14kg) with 20 lbs (9kg) releasable with the SureLock II Mechanical Weight Release System. The BCD also, has 20 lbs (9kg) non-releasable trim weight with 5 lbs (2.27kg) each in waistband pockets and an additional 5 lbs (2.27kg) each in the bladder trim pockets. There are 4 dump valves in all, one in each corner. 3 are proprietary flat valves are very streamlined and effective. The dump valve on the upper left is the rapid exhaust valve found at the top of the Powerline inflator. The Powerline inflator assembly boasts one of the fastest inflation rates in the industry. This environmentally sealed unit has integrated clips to keep the LP inflator hose tucked in securely. Inflator comes with a 3/8" threaded quick-disconnect hose. A dual bladder retraction system is used to pull in the sides of the bladder during deflation. This keeps unit streamlined and reduces drag. The BCD's lift capacity is 45, 47, 49 lbs (20.4, 21.3, 22.2kg) depending on sizes. The Apeks Exotec BCD is available in multiple sizes.
