The Mares Loop Octo pairs the Loop regulator for a unique design of 2nd stage. Having the inlet hose fitted vertically makes donation easy and faster as the orientation is more natural and the mouthpiece routes more naturally.

 

Vertical Mount
Unlike traditional 2nd stages the hose is mounted to the underside of the mouthpiece. Your primary hose routes behind your shoulder and under either arm and then up into your mouth, reducing chances of your hose catching on anything or being damaged and makes you more streamlined.


Technical divers who use side-mounted stages can route their hose straight from their 1st stage without any odd bends or strain in the hose. The vertical orientation also makes the Loop omni-directional so you don't have to worry about which side it comes from, the 2nd stage is always upright.


Donating is also neater as there is no confusion which way up the 2nd stage is in an out of air situation. Holding the hose you know the 2nd stage is upright so you don't have to worry about flipping it over or awkward bends in the hose.

Features

  • Can be mounted on the right or the left side
  • Freedom of movement in all directions
  • "Under the shoulder" hose position
  • Twin exhaust valves
  • Integrated sagittal vad (s-vad)
  • Oversized silicone purge button

Mares Loop Octo - Features

FeatureProduct Specification
Adjustable Inhalation
?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.
No
Adjustable Venturi
?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.
No
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.
Cold & Warm Water
Environmentally sealed
?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.
-
First Stage
?Unbalanced regulators are affected by the pressure in the cylinder, becoming slighty harder to breathe from when the pressure starts to drop.

Balanced regulators are not affected by the cylinder pressure or depth.

Over-balanced regulators achieve unprecedented performance by increasing your air supply the deeper you go providing the best breathe for deep divers.
-
High Pressure Ports
?High pressure ports supply the pressure gauge and wireless transmitters for dive computers
-
Low Pressure Ports
?Low pressure ports supply the 2nd stages and inflator hoses
-
Second Stage
?An Unbalanced second stage is simply a lever operated valve that is opened and closed as the diaphragm is pulled inwards by the vacuum that is created when the diver inhales. An unbalanced second stage is affected by increased pressure at depth, slightly increasing the effort required to open the valve.

A Balanced second stage overcomes the effects of increased pressure by utilising a balancing chamber. This chamber takes some of the work away from the spring mechanism, allowing a smaller spring to be used which results in an easier breathe. As the chamber uses air to balance the valve it maintains the same resistance as the diver descends and ascends, keeping the inhalation effort the same.
Balanced
Service Information
?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.
