Apeks DST 1st Stage

Although the XTX40 is a mid-range Apeks regulator, it is still classed as a high performance regulator in independent reviews.
The first stage has four medium-pressure ports all mounted on a rotating turret.
This results in optimal hose routing while eliminating sharp bends in the hose.

Optional 5th port is available for sidemount or twin cylinder set ups.

Available in yoke or DIN configuration.

Suitable for coldwater use (below 10 C / 50 F).

Compatible with EAN40 out of the box.

First Stage:

  • Use the DST first stage.
  • Unique over-balanced, diaphragm design - as the diver descends, the over-balancing feature allows the medium pressure gas in the hose to increase at a rate faster than ambient. This results in superior performance at depth.
  • 2 HP ports and 4 MP ports on a rotating turret are angled for optimum hose routing.
  • An environmental dry system keeps water out of the main spring chamber thus preventing ice buildup and keeping silt and contamination out.
