The front-adjustable X-Black features Scubapro's exclusive AirFlex system (highlighted by the red bungees threaded throughout the BCD) that simplifies buoyancy control and helps guarantee an extremely stable ride at depth. Loaded with convenience and performance features, the X-Black is also one of the most comfortable BCDs available, thanks to its ergonomic cut and huge lift capacity. Constructed of a combination of durable 1000 denier and 420 denier nylon for long-term wear. Adjustable cummerbund compensates for suit compression, ensuring a snug fit at varying depths. Non-rotating quick-release shoulder buckles optimize strap routing to maximize fit. Airnet backpack is water-draining and comfortable during long dives.
AirFlex system with special bladder delivers enormous buoyant lift capacity. Super Cinch tank buckle system locks the tank in solid for maximum stability at depth. Quick-release integrated weight pouches ditch quickly and easily and secure with buckles. Each weight pocket holds up to 12 lbs. (5.44 kg) of hard block or soft pouch lead weights. Two optional rear trim pouches allow you to achieve a well-balanced swimming position. Each rear weight pocket holds up to 4 lbs. (1.8 kg) of hard block or soft pouch lead weights. Built-in grommets provide attachment points for a knife. Three large zippered pockets and a zippered cummerbund pouch provide lots of cargo-carrying capability. Eight aluminum D-rings, four large and pre-bent, provide convenient clip-on points for extra gear. Built rugged, supremely stable, the X-Black can handle even the most aggressive diving. The BCD has multiple adjustments for a perfect fit, including torso adjustable shoulder straps, adjustable sternum and waist straps all equipped with squeeze-style" side release buckles for ease of donning and doffing. The waist strap is also equipped with a comfortable cummerbund. There is a right shoulder and right lower rear over-pressure relief/pull-dump valves, both equipped with pull cords for ease of trimming buoyancy. It's also one of the most comfortable BCDs you'll ever climb into. If you're looking for a front-adjustable BCD that can take anything you throw at it, and do it with comfort and style, you're going to love the X-Black. Available in Black in multiple sizes with 38.2 to 65.1 lbs. (17.3 kg to 29.6 kg) of buoyant lift, depending on size. BCD weighs from 9.5 to 10.3 lbs. (4.3 to 4.67 kg) depending on size.
The X-Black BCD comes equipped with Scubapro's AIR2 V Gen Breathable Inflator. When you took dive lessons you learned to perform specific skills to make you safe and comfortable underwater and at the surface. One of those skills was buoyancy control. Once you start diving for fun you use your buoyancy control device constantly throughout the dive. Your octopus or alternate air source device on the other hand is never used unless there is an emergency out-of-air situation. Reacting properly in an out-of-air situation can make the difference between an eventful dive and a tragedy. If your alternate air source and your BCD inflator device are one and the same, you will always know where to find it in an emergency. AIR2 V Gen is more than a simple inflator. Its components design takes advantage from the best regulator technology to guarantee maximum efficiency and reliability. As an inflator AIR2 V Gen provides perfect pressure control for a great buoyancy management. Ergonomic shape makes it easy-to-handle in any circumstances and it can be emptied by simply pressing the exhaust button.
AIR2's air balanced power inflator provides smooth and reliable inflation at all tank pressures. Single hose configuration eliminates the need for a separate alternate air source. Innovative dive/pre-dive switch enables you to detune the unit when not in use, eliminating free flows. Self-flushing mechanism requires just one push on the purge to clear away all dirt. The regulator mechanism is a simple, yet reliable classic downstream demand valve. Air 2 is equipped with an ergonomic mouthpiece with large bit tabs, soft second-stage cover and one button purge function. The regulator's pre-tuned system is housed in a precision molded carbon fiber and techno-polymer impact resistant design that weighs 6.7 oz. (190 g). Nitrox compatible up to 40% out of the box. The demand valve is chrome plated brass with a stainless-steel spring and a silicone rubber diaphragm and exhaust valve. The Air 2 comes with a 3/8" threaded 27.56" (70 cm) high-flow low-pressure hose and owner's manual. CE certified (EN250A -- greater than 10°C/50°F warm water test controls) as a second stage regulator.
