The VAD system exploits the Venturi effect by conveying 90% of the air inside a lateral by-pass. The airflow flows through it without encountering any levers and/or mechanisms and guarantees maximum performance even in extreme situations, such as diving in cold water.
The Twin Power System allows the VAD system's air flow to be controlled, ensuring natural breathing at any depth and providing the necessary amount of air in relation to the diver's demand.
Breathing comfort is adjustable according to the diver's needs thanks to a knob, which is easy to use even with thick gloves; a feature that Mares also applies to the vent button, which is large and pivoting, for easy and immediate use.
Pneumatic balancing completes the range of advantages of this second stage. Supplied with a Superflex hose.
Please follow the instructions contained in the manual. You must read and understand all warnings and instructions in their entirety before using our products. Scuba diving is a hazardous activity, which involves a risk of injury to any and all parts of the body.

Regulator Special Disclaimer
Equipment complying with EN 250 is not intended for breathing by more than one user at the same time.
If SCUBA equipment is configured and used by more than one diver at the same time, the cold water and breathing performance may not fulfill the requirements of EN 250. Therefore, the octopus should not be used during dives in cold water. Use of the dual regulator is recommended for cold water diving.
For safety reasons, it is not advisable to use an Octopus second stage that is not a certified Mares Octopus.
