Mk2 EVO 1st Stage
The Scubapro Mk2 EVO 1st Stage is a compact piston first stage with their EVO XTIS treatment for improved efficiency and coldwater performance. At home in both warm and cold water the Mk 2 is small and light, perfect for your first regulator or as a stage cylinder's 1st stage.
Who is the Mk2 for?
The Mk2 is a perfect 1st stage for beginner divers buying their first regulator and for divers who need a compact, reliable 1st stage for a stage cylinder or pony. It can be used in warm or cold water.
The Mk2 is compatible with any Scubapro 2nd Stage, any SPG, any 3/8" Low Pressure Hose (but Scubapro Superflow Hoses are recommended), any 7/16" High Pressure Hose with Gauges.
The Mk2 is just a 1st stage so you will need hoses and 2nd stages and a SPG. 1st stages will arrive with one port left open without a plug for safety.

Scubapro dive gear is considered among the finest quality dive equipment and snorkel equipment available today and is used by many professional divers all over the world.
Scubapro's attention to detail is pinnacle with each piece of equipment so it performs perfectly in the water. Each part of their regulators is carefully crafted to improve airflow for a smooth breathe with minimal turbulence.
Scubapro Mk2 EVO 1st Stage - 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.
?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.
|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 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.
?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
?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.
