The Apeks MTX-RC Single Cylinder Long Hose Regulator Set is designed for the diver that prefers a long hose configuration on a single cylinder. Innovative first stage design and technology protects the regulator from freezing which makes it a great regulator set for the temperate waters of southern Australia.
Useful in situations where the large gas volumes of a twin cylinder configuration are not required, it’s also the perfect set-up for the recreational diver looking to transition into twinset diving in the future, as the addition of another first stage creates a twinset regulator configuration.
Combining rugged, military-grade engineering with the super-smooth breathing experience that Apeks regulators are renowned for, the MTX-RC single cylinder set dives your way. The Apeks MTX-RC is an updated version of the original MTX-R regulator which was developed to meet the incredible tough requirements of the United States Navy Experimental Dive Unit extreme cold water test. Apeks modified the MTX-RC to include the convenience, comfort and practicality of diver adjustable inhalation effort and venturi effect.
Featuring freeze-resistant technology the Apeks MTX-RC resists freeflows in even the coldest temperatures, while offering the user the additional flexibility to dial it out for a comfortable breathe in less extreme environments.
All this is achieved using an innovative first stage design that protects the regulator from freezing and a full set of user controls on the second stage to adjust the breathing performance based on the diver’s individual needs.
The Apeks MTX-RC is a high performance fully balanced regulator system much like the majority of the Apeks range. It was developed for extreme cold conditions and with technical / advanced diving in mind.
