GearNews – Apeks XL4 Regulator

This newcomer from Apeks is travel-friendly, weighing in at only 905gm, and designed to be fused with extreme coldwater performance.

Apeks has used an over-moulded end-cap to minimise ice build-up on the first stage which, like the second stage, uses heat-exchangers to prevent the freezing that can lead to freeflows. Expecting the regulator to have general appeal, Apeks anticipates that it will be especially attractive to technical divers who want a lightweight and compact unit on which they can depend in demanding environments. It costs £339 for DIN or yoke models, and £363 for the M26 nitrox version.
