The Apeks XL4 is a compact, lightweight regulator suitable for diving in all environments including cold water locations. Its design and low weight help reduce jaw fatigue on long dives. The XL4 also makes an ideal stage regulator, perfect for the technical exploration diver with a large amount of equipment. The XL4 is a high performance option for those technical divers serious about weight savings.
All of our regulator set-ups come with hoses.

 

1st Stage

  • Compact machined first stage based on the expedition tested Apeks DS4 platform.
  • Break through, innovative over-moulded first-stage endcap and environmental diaphragm helps prevent ice build-up that can cause first stage free flow in extreme circumstances. Also protects the first stage from impact damage.
  • Large surface area heat exchanger diaphragm clamp helps increase the gas temperature inside the first stage, resulting in improved cold water performance.
  • Unique over-balanced diaphragm design – as the diver descends, the over-balancing feature allows the medium pressure gas in the hose to increase at a faster rate than ambient. This results in superior performance at depth.

2nd Stage

  • Compact and lightweight second stage improves comfort and helps reduce jaw fatigue on long duration dives.
  • High performance pneumatically balanced lever operated poppet valve.
  • Large, over moulded self-flushing and controllable purge button.
  • Ergonomic Venturi lever is easy to use and locate.
  • Flexible nylon braided hose has better cold water performance than a traditional rubber hose.
  • Standard metallic hose connection for interchangeability.
  • Comfo-bite mouthpiece has a unique bridge that fits across the upper palate and does not require bite pressure to stay in place.
  • Re-useable mouthpiece clip makes it simple to change mouthpieces in the field.
  • Durable and flexible rubber exhaust tee provides excellent bubble diversion.

 Octopus

  • High performance pneumatically balanced lever operated poppet valve.
  • Large, over moulded self-flushing and controllable purge button.
  • Ergonomic venturi lever is easy to use and locate.
  • Flexible nylon braided hose has better cold water performance than traditional rubber hose.
  • Standard metallic hose connection for interchangeability.
  • Colour coded octopus hose
  • Suitable for cold water use (below 10°C / 50°F).

Pressure Gauge

The Apeks submersible pressure (contents) gauge, with an internal Bourdon pressure measuring mechanism, gives you clear information on the gas contents of your cylinder. The gauge indicates the cylinder bottle pressure and the dial range is from zero to 360 Bar (an imperial version is also available with a range up to 5000 psi). The dial face is designed with clarity in mind by being uncluttered, with large black figures on a luminous background giving a long phosphorescent effect. This makes viewing as easy as possible, even in poor visibility conditions.

  • The gauge case is made from nickel plated brass
  • The dial window is made of highly shock resistant material (anti-splinter polycarbonate)
  • A specially designed housing protects the gauge and HP hose fitting from accidental damage
  • A large loop area designed into the housing allows for easy attachment.
  • There is an over-pressure capsule fitted in the back of the module to prevent the screen from exploding in the unlikely event of the internal mechanism failing.

Pressure & Depth Gauge Console

The 2-gauge console combines a submersible pressure (contents) gauge and a depth gauge housed in a specially designed case. The unit is completed with a high pressure hose. The console clearly displays your pressure and depth readings for easy viewing under water and the dials have a long phosphorescent effect for better reading in poor visibility conditions. The submersible pressure gauge provides accurate pressure readings with a range of 360 bar (imperial available up to 5000 psi). The depth gauge reads up to 70m (imperial available to 230ft).

  • The gauge case is made from nickel plated brass
  • The dial window is made of highly shock resistant material (antisplinter polycarbonate)
  • A specially designed housing protects the gauge and HP hose fitting from accidental damage
  • A large loop area designed into the housing allows for easy attachment.
  • There is an over-pressure capsule fitted in the back of the module to prevent the screen from exploding in the unlikely event of the internal mechanism failing.
  • Dials have a long phosphorescent effect for better reading in poor visibility conditions
  • There are 2 attachment areas integrated into the design for position flexibility
  • This may be a compact design but the displays are vivid and clear - perfect for diving. For example, the depth gauge spreads the first half of the scale and in total shows a range down to 70 m
  • Depth gauge has resettable max depth indicator

Pressure & Depth Gauge with Compass

All instruments give accurate, clear readings and are made from the best quality materials. As such they offer perfect functionality and excellent robustness. In essence, the 2+1 instrument combo is an Apeks 2-gauge console with our unique compass on the reverse. A compact system that we believe is the best combo set available anywhere in the world.

  • The gauge case is made from nickel plated brass
  • The dial window is made of highly shock resistant material (anti-splinter polycarbonate)
  • A specially designed housing protects the gauge and HP hose fitting from accidental damage
  • A large loop area designed into the housing allows for easy attachment.
  • There is an over-pressure capsule fitted in the back of the module to prevent the screen from exploding in the unlikely event of the internal mechanism failing.
  • Dials have a long phosphorescent effect for better reading in poor visibility conditions

  • This may be a compact design but the displays are vivid and clear - perfect for diving. For example, the depth gauge spreads the first half of the scale and in total shows a range down to 70 m
  • Depth gauge has resettable max depth indicator
  • The compass ratchet bezel is robust and can be rotated with ease even with thick neoprene gloves
  • The numbers and directions on the compass bezel are large and very easy to read
  • The luminous compass dial with a vivid and clear display makes quick work of compass direction even in poor visibility
