The Scubapro X-Black is a high specification, durable yet comfortable BCD that features a new Balanced Power Inflator (BPI) and elbow design, rigid backed integrated weight pockets, redesigned dump valves and a new bladder system.
Fully Padded Backpad and harness system which, combined with an ergonomic cut, provides an excellent level of comfort whilst diving. The bladder uses Scubapro's AirFlex system that controls the bladder behaviour, allowing it to expand for increased buoyancy but also provide a more responsive deflation.
The Integrated Weight Pockets have been improved with a plastic backing to make them more rigid when filled. This makes it easier to insert and remove the quick release pockets from their slot. The pockets are fixed into position with a quick release buckle for maximum security and ease of use in an emergency.
Dump Valves are now more responsive then ever thanks to a redesign that increases the diameter of the opening within the valve, allowing more precise control and reaction from the valve. Air can be dumped from the rear kidney dump, right shoulder dump or by pulling down on the inflator assembly to activate the left shoulder dump and also by using inflator itself.
Balanced Power Inflator has an improved ergonomic design, gradual inflation mechanism with particular attention to the location of the inflator button to make it easier to find without visual aid.
Numerous Metal D-Rings (pre-bent and standard) for secure attachment of accessories, adjustable and quick release buckle harness with improved shoulder strap position for better stability, octo pockets, side pockets and rear trim pockets.
Weight approx. : 4.5kg
Scubapro X-Black BCD - Features
|Back Plate Type|
?Describes the style of back plate, a travel BCD will usually feature a flexible or partial backplate whereas a standard BCD will have a full rigid (and probably padded) backplate
|Full padded rigid|
|Female Specific Fit|
?Most BCDs are designed to fit men and women but there are a growing number of BCDs designed specifically for women, providing a much better fit and support.
?A standard BCD will provide lift in the back and usually through the front pockets, giving a balanced lift. Hybrids and wing systems will provide lift in different ways depending on the design, a standard wing will only provide lift in the back.
|All round lift|
?Quick release weight systems allow a more comfortable distribution of weight as it no longer has to be solely worn around the waist. Easy removal means that the pouches can be quickly removed and handed over to boat crews on exit or dumped in an emergency.
|Quick Release Buckles|
?Quick release buckles aid donning and removal of the BCD with minimal effort
?Main side pockets for storage
|Single Pouch Capacity (kg)|
?The recommended maximum weight for each integrated weight pouch (based on medium BCD)
|Single Trim Capacity (kg)|
?The recommended maximum weight for each trim weight pocket
|Trim Weight Pockets|
?Trim weight pockets allow weight to be added to the back of the BCD to balance out the distribution. They are also useful to counterbalance the affect of wearing a pony or other redundant system as counter weights can be added to the pouch on the opposite side, helping to prevent rolling.
