Mares Epic Adj 82X Regulator
The new Epic ADJ 82X, the top-of-the-line in Mares regulators, boasts a wealth of exceptional features - the first of its kind worldwide!
Unique 1st and 2nd stages are treated with a Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD) for unbeatable resistance.
A balanced diaphragm 1st stage guarantees unparalleled breathing and consistent performance at any depth, even tested down to 400m! Including a swivel turret which can be positioned facing up or down with five low pressure ports and two pre-oriented high pressure ports.
The metal body balanced 2nd stage is unbeatable for cold water diving and is extremely durable whilst elegant. Divers are offered effortless breathing in every situation, and can adjust cracking effort (initial effort to start the flow of air) by simply turning an adjustment knob. The innovative Twin Power System allows for further adjustment of airflow by the diver.

All Metal Technology
Outstanding mechanical reliability and high thermal conductivity make our metal 2nd stages extremely long lasting and ideal for cold water dives. The high thermal conductivity of metal reduces also the dry mouth feeling during the dive.
DFC - Dynamic Flow Control
Minimizes intermediate pressure drop during inhalation thus maximizing gas delivery, especially under extreme conditions.
ACT Valve - Advanced Coating Technology
Advanced Coating Technology
The new valve in the “X” systems increases durability by an astounding 600%, even under the most extreme conditions.
New, flow control manages the delivery rate of your gas, from natural breathing to power breathing. The former is the traditional way of breathing a Mares regulator, (VAD) while the latter (VAD+) provides an extra push when you need it.
VAD - Vortex Assisted Design
The air bypass tube delivers air to the mouthpiece creating a swirling vortex with a low pressure area in the center that keeps the diaphragm down during inhalation, for very sensitive and easy breathing at all depths.
Patented design which reduces the impact of water flow onto the second stage diaphragm, thus eliminating free flows even in strong currents.
Extreme light weight and exceptional softness guarantee the maximum freedom of movement.
