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
Throughout the 80’s and 90’s one of the most popular regulators in the diving industry was the Sherwood Maximus Regulator. Today, the Maximus returns, but this is no dinosaur.
This new Maximus is one of the most provocative and unique regulators on the market today. The Maximus brings with it the most recognizable and unique features that its predecessor carried: the Under Arm Swivel, the extended 42 inch hose, and the extremely comfortable Wisdom Mouthpiece. But this regulator also has several new features that make this regulator something very unique, such as a One-Touch Adjustment, a SMART Demand Lever, a High Performance Valve Design, and an oversized purge cover. These features deliver a beautifully designed regulator that provides the most comfortable diving experience a regulator can provide.
Under Arm Swivel- Allows the hose to be routed under your arm as opposed to over your shoulder.
Extended 42 Inch Hose
Wisdom Mouthpiece- The longer co-molded mouthpiece allows your molars and wisdom teeth to hold onto the 2nd stage, using your larger teeth to hold onto the regulator reduce jaw fatigue.
