The new Apeks XTX regulators are the first in the world to meet the new European Standard for Auxiliary Emergency Breathing Systems, a major Safety Standard.
Apeks XTX regulators are respected as some of the best SCUBA regulators available and still come at the top in independent reviews around the world. Improving these regulators has not been easy. The new Apeks XTX20 takes all that is good from the previous version and offers even more with stunning looks and practical improvements.
The Apeks XTX20 regulator set is designed specifically use in warm water an is therefore more compact and lightweight, excellent for the travelling diver. Although designed for warm water use as a member Apeks XTX family the XTX20 regulator is still full of features.
XTX20 First/Primary Stage
The Apeks XTX20 first/primary stage regulator has medium pressure ports located on a swivelling turret allow more freedom of movement and better hose routing.
XTX20 Second Stage Regulator
The Apeks XTX20 2nd stage regulator has a larger purge button which is easier for diver use and also offers a dual flow rate purge for different operations. Apeks have also redesigned the diver adjustable controls with improved ergonomics on the venturi lever and the Cracking Resistance Control.
Every aspect of the new Apeks XTX20 regulator has been thought about to bring the whole unit together so that it not only performs exceptionally well but also looks great.
The Apeks XTX20 2nd stage regulator and Apeks XTX20 Octopus are now manufactured with active protection against infection as all moulded parts are made with an additive that kills MRSA, protects against E-Coli, bacteria and fungi and is also very effective against viruses, mould, yeast and algae.
Imitation is of course flattering and there are many copies of Apeks equipment. However, Apeks regulators are made to high standards in the most advanced factory in the world for regulator design and manufacture with exceptional quality controls. Apeks don't make regulators for anyone else, so as to ensure you get an authentic Apeks regulator our branding is now clearly visible on both the 1st and 2nd stages of the new Apeks XTX20 regulator set.
The Apeks XTX20 warm water regulator can be converted from a right handed hose configuration (as supplied from the Apeks factory) to a left handed one. This feature is known as the Reversible Venturi System (RVS). Changing the regulator to a left handed configuration is both quick and simple and can be performed by any Apeks Authorised Service Technician, including The Scuba Doctor.
The Apeks XTX20 2nd Stage regulator incorporates the Diver Changeable Exhaust system (DCE). This offers divers the ability to change from a small exhaust tee (supplied as standard) to a larger exhaust. It gives a choice of the wider exhaust tee for minimal bubble interference (great for underwater photography) and a narrow exhaust for a smaller, more compact regulator (also ideal for use as an octopus regulator).
The Apeks XTX20 2nd Stage regulator incorporates a two-shot high strength composite front cover, improving the durability of the most vulnerable part of the demand valve. The new ergonomic Venturi lever of the Apeks XTX20 second stage has been designed to reduce the amount of grit ingress.
A new swivel hose connection is available at an extra cost. This allows the demand valve end of the hose connection to rotate and pivot, providing a more comfortable fit.
A new silicone exhaust valve has been used on the Apeks XTX20 regulator improving breathing performance.
