The Mares Epic ADJ 82x Regulator combines all of the technology and advancements from its predecessors to make one of the best performing regulators they've made. The 82x 1st stage has a unique swivel turret helping hose routing and an AST dry valve to help keep water out of the first stage.
Epic 2nd Stage
The Epic second stage has Mares' bypass tube that controls the airflow into the 2nd stage, warming it and preventing fluttering. You have two adjustments on the Epic for airflow the first being the Twin Power System where you can adjust the amount of gas that get it with a normal and supercharged + setting. The 2nd adjustment is for breathing resistance and how hard or easy it is to open the valve when you breath in.
The purge button on the front is both wide and hinged so it is easy to use and control. The hinged mechanism allows you to control exactly how much gas will purge and how strong so if you just need a little fresh air you can push it a smidge or if you want to clear the 2nd stage push it all the way to open the valve.
82x 1st Stage
The 82x is Mares' first swivel turret 1st stage with 5 low pressure ports, 4 of which can rotate so you can better control the angle of your hoses even in the water. To keep your 1st stage safe from water ingress when unpressurised the 82x has Auto Sealing Technology, AST, that is a spring loaded plug to seal the inlet to better keep water and dust out of the 1st stage during storage and cleaning.

Mares Epic ADJ 82x Regulator - Features
?This feature allows the diver to adjust the inhalation setting from the set level and increase the effort required to open the 2nd stage valve to deliver air. Close.
?The venturi control affects how air flows in the 2nd stage. In it's positive position the flow of gas creates a vacuum against the diapragm, helping to open the valve. In it's negative position it will divert gas back against the diaphragm helping to close the valve. It is basically used to help prevent free flowing. Close.
|Cold Water Rated|
?Cold water has adverse effects on regulators and can cause some to freeze so each regulator combination must be tested during manufacturing for their performance in different water temperatures.
Cold water is defined by EN250 as below 10°C. If a regulator combination cannot meet the performance standards below 10°C then they are only suitable for warm waters.
EN250 / (EN250A >10°C)
To pass the regulator must provide at least 62.5 L/min of air at 50M depth above 10°C. Close.
|Cold & Warm Water|
?Environmentally sealed 1st stages offer greater protection against freezing when diving in cold water (below 10 degrees C)
Scubapro have a new method of cold water proofing their first stages called the eXtended Thermal Insulating System or XTIS which still allows water into the first stage but the internal parts that come into contact with the water are coated to prevent ice from forming. Close.
|High Pressure Ports|
?High pressure ports supply the pressure gauge and wireless transmitters for dive computers Close.
|Low Pressure Ports|
?Low pressure ports supply the 2nd stages and inflator hoses Close.
?All regulators need to be serviced to keep them in working order as the parts inside them age and wear over time and with use. Most regulators need to be serviced once a year or after 100 dives with normal recreational use to replace parts and re-balance.
Some regulators use more modern materials or mechanisms that allow them to extend the servicing interval that can save you some money in the long run. Close.
