The thing that sets the Mares Loop 15X Diving Regulator apart from all the other second stages available today is its special "vertical" use. In order to implement this, the second stage was conceived and designed so that the hose can be run under the shoulder instead of above it. With this solution, the manufacturer from Rapallo has responded to the numerous requests from the market and has met the need to have a second stage that can be used even with the hose coming from the left, whether used as the main regulator or as an octopus, with the goal of better satisfying and personalizing the needs of each diver. The benefits are undeniable: the special "conformation" allows both the risk of tangling during the dive and the vibration of the hose while kicking to be reduced as much as possible.
All of this, combined with maximum freedom of movement, for incredible comfort. The new, vertical second stage is designed with a rubber hose, slightly longer than the normal ones currently provided: 110 cm. The new, built-in "S-VAD" (Sagittal VAD) system and the unique profile of the internal deflector combined with the double exhaust valve allow for natural breathing at any depth, enormously increasing breathing comfort during dives.
