Apeks Exotec BCD

The Apeks Exotec BCD offers the ultimate connection between you, the diver and your equipment. The first of its kind, the Apeks Exotec features an articulated backplate that pivots at the waist. This articulation allows the Exotec BCD to work harmoniously with your body's natural movement in and out of the water.

Apeks Exotec BCD Features and Benefits

  • BioReact articulating waist system for maximum comfort and freedom of movement.
  • GripTek fabric keeps the BCD in place both on the surface and underwater.
  • The bladder is constructed from super-tough Armoguard slick skin for increased abrasion resistance, faster drying and a reduced risk of bacterial growth due to the slick surface.
  • Anodised aluminium hardware is both strong and lightweight.
  • G-Hook chest strap and tank retainer allow simple one-handed operation.
  • Three-position height adjustable backplate allows for optimum fit.
  • Adjustable waist and shoulders.
  • Two large pockets can be folded up flat when not in use to reduce drag

Apeks Exotec BCD Wrapture Harness System

Using patented swivel shoulder buckles and a proprietary, ultra-thin back plate, the Wrapture provides unsurpassed comfort and stability. Wrapture prevents the BC from “riding up” on the surface.

Out of the water, the Wrapture keeps the cylinder close to your centre of gravity and transfers the weight to your hips. The result is the ability to stand straight with a perfectly vertical cylinder.

Because of the multiple size settings at the top of the shoulders and either side of the waistband, a custom fit can be achieved through any three sizes.

Apeks Exotec BCD Weight System

The Apeks Exotec features the patented SureLock II Mechanical Weight Release System designed to provide a safe, single-pull release. Inserting weight is as simple as inserting and “clicking”. With SureLock, your weights are secure in the BC. Once engaged, the only way to release the weight is to pull on the handle.

Other Features of The Apeks Exotec BCD

There are four dump valves in all, one in each corner. Three are proprietary flat valves that are very streamlined and effective. The dump valve on the upper left is the rapid exhaust valve found at the top of the Powerline inflator.

The Powerline inflator assembly boasts one of the fastest inflation rates in the industry. This environmentally sealed unit has integrated clips to securely keep the LP inflator hose tucked in.

A dual bladder retraction system is used to pull in the sides of the bladder during deflation. This keeps the unit streamlined and reduces drag.
