PVD is an acronym for Physical Vapor Deposition and indicates a technology used to deposit a thin metal film over various types of substrates. The process takes place in a vacuum chamber in which the metals to be deposited are evaporated. PVD coatings are particularly well-suited to innovative, advanced technical products.
The VAD system exploits the Venturi effect by conveying 90% of the air inside a lateral bypass. 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 purge 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.
Maintenance and care: Mares recommends rinsing and carefully drying the Epic Adj octopus after every dive to avoid dirty and/or blue spots on the PVD surface due to limestone residue.
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. As with all scuba diving equipment, our products are designed to be used by trained, certified divers only.
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.
