You cannot breathe directly out of a scuba tank because of the high pressure. A regulator reduces pressure to safe a level that can be inhaled by the diver. A diving regulator has two parts: the First Stage reduces the tank pressure and connects it to the Second Stage which contains the mouthpiece for breathing
Designed for Depth. The pneumatically-balanced ZEO is an engineering marvel of precision, durability and comfort. Its durable chrome-plated marine brass metal valve delivers a phenomenal breathing experience, improves cold-water performance and helps recirculate moisture from exhalation to prevent dry mouth. The breathing adjustment gives the diver a wide range of control to precisely set airflow throughout the dive. The ZEO comes standard with an in-line hose swivel, inhalation effort control, dynamic adjustment technology dive/ pre-dive switch and a super comfortable orthodontic mouth piece featuring an inline ball swivel on the hose connection to eliminate the binding that can cause jaw fatigue. The new cold-forged, over-balanced diaphragm FDX-i first stage is environmentally sealed. The in-line design limits the pressure loss inherent in "L" type first stage designs making the FDX-i more efficient and lighter due to its compact form.
Try telling an engineer that a design, any design, can't be made… better. In our case that challenge led directly to the ZEO.
We started with the EOS, a legendary regulator known for it's comfort and breathing profile and ended up with the ZEO. Like it's predecessor the EOS, the ZEO is also a phenomenal breather allowing the diver extensive control over the air flow profile at a
The ZEO second stage comes paired with our new first stage FDX-i. The cold forged, over-balanced diaphragm FDX-i is environmentally sealed. It's in-line design limits the pressure loss inherent in "L" type first stage designs making the FDX-i more efficie
The ZEO/FDX-i combination is everything you need for a sublime breathing experience at any depth and in any environment. From the balmy tropical waters of the caribbean to the extremes of cold water diving's best dive sites, the ZEO will perform with reli
Second Stage ZEO
First Stage FDX-i
The FDX-i in-line design provides an improved flow rate, greatly reduced weight and more ergonomic port positioning for better hose routing when compared to the classic right angle first stages.
Pneumatically balanced second stage automatically maintains consistent inhalation effort throughout dive
Diver adjustable inhalation effort allows the diver to control a desired level of airflow at any time.
Patented Dynamic Adjustment automatically maintains inhalation effort throughout the dive
Adjustable Venturi Switch (A.V.S.) for simple dive/pre-dive adjustment
Inline ball swivel reduces jaw fatigue
