STEALTH 2.0 TEC – Sidemount revolution continues.
The STEALTH 2.0 TEC was designed to excel in advanced technical sidemount diving. 42 lbs / 19 kg BC lift can easily support multiple cylinders that advanced diving requires. New semi-fixed STEALTH 2.0 TEC BC provides unmatched stability, balance and trim whatever the level of inflation.
By placing the dump valve in the center of STEALTH 2.0 TEC wing, you can release excess gas with either hand, and stay in perfect trim while you do so. Left and right inflator ports available.
STEALTH 2.0 TEC is based on proven fully modular revolutionary harness. Stealth TEC harness features 3 differing webbing thickness and stiffness not only for comfort but also for enhanced performance. Security and adjust ability is designed into the harness to enhance the diving experience. D rings on the waist strap can be moved to allow for cylinder buoyancy changes and control of cylinder position, even if carrying buoyant high helium mixes.
Stealth 2.0 TEC features world’s best weight management system achieving perfect balance and trim. Multi options of weight management system allows you to place the weight in an ideal position relative to your center of gravity. Central weight pocket is simple to move within a considerable range. Just as if you were moving a V-weight on a twinset, you can apply the same principle for optimum position and thereby perfect balance and trim.
Stealth TEC is used by top sidemount training centers and instructors.
Dive Deeper, Dive Longer, Dive Safer
The STEALTH 2.0 TEC was designed to excel in deep decompression diving and in extended cave penetrations. 19Kg of lift in the wing can easily support the multiple cylinders that advanced diving requires. Increasing the STEALTH 2.0 buoyancy meant ensuring that the movement and position of the gas could be properly managed. The STEALTH 2.0 TEC BC does this brilliantly, keeping you stable, balanced and in trim, whatever the level of inflation.
More Lift, even more Streamlined
Increasing the lift of the BCD whilst maintaining and even improving the streamlining required a complete rethink on wing design. New solutions offered a spectacular result.
Multi cylinders are now easily supported, even if they are large volume heavy steels or cave filled. At the same time, the STEALTH 2.0 TEC is incredibly slender, even when fully inflated.
Manage your Buoyancy whilst Staying in Trim
Many sidemount BCD’s place the dump valve on one side or the other. Releasing gas from these systems requires a roll onto your side, maybe OK in 2 cylinder configuration, but when carrying multiple cylinders, changes of trim and balance require considerable effort that really should not be needed.
By placing the dump valve in the centre of the STEALTH 2.0 TEC wing, you can release excess gas with either hand, and stay in perfect trim while you do so.
Protection Where its Needed
If you are going to catch any part of the system in a narrow wreck passage or cave restriction, it will probably be the upper part of your back first. We have thought ahead and reinforced the upper part of the BCD, improving the fit to your back and eliminating snagging hazards. Safe, functional and secure.
STEALTH 2.0 HARNESS – CORE TECHNOLOGY
The STEALTH 2.0 harness was a ground-breaking approach that revolutionised sidemount harnesses. At the core of the STEALTH 2.0 system it provides technical divers with a foundation of comfort and safety unparalled anywhere else in the dive industry. The TEC wing is fixed to the harness for added security during the deep part of the dive and on your decompression stops.
The STEALTH 2.0 features harness webbing of differing thickness and stiffness for comfort but also for enhanced performance. Security and adjustability is designed into the harness to enhance the diving experience. D rings on the waist strap can be moved to allow for changes in tank buoyancy and control of cylinder position, even if carrying buoyant high helium mixes. Often copied the STEALTH 2.0 harness is unequalled.
Technically Advanced Webbing
Three different webbing technologies in the STEALTH 2.0 harness meet the functional challenges of deep technical diving.
On the waist there is a stiff and rigid webbing that ensures the D rings for clipping off your cylinders stay exactly where you want them, even with stages or deco cylinders. Shoulder straps mould to your body by using softer material and give great fit and ease of movement. The crotch strap is super soft but supportive without leading to wear on your drysuit.
THE WORLDS’ BEST WEIGHT MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
Attach your weights exactly where you want them. Achieving perfect balance and trim, even with 5 or 6 cylinders, is simple, whether you need one 1Kg or over 20Kg.
Designed to keep weights secure and immovable whilst remaining easy to use and flexible, the STEALTH 2.0 weight management system is truly world class.
Balanced to Achieve Easy Trim
The XDEEP weight management system allows you to place the weight in an ideal position relative to your centre of gravity. The central weight pocket is simple to move within a considerable range. Just as if you were moving a V or tail weight on a twinset, you can apply the same principle for optimum position and thereby perfect balance.
Secure and Smart Weight Pocket Closures
Unintentionally losing weight and being unable to hold decompression stops can lead to serious injury or worse. In technical diving the consequences of losing weights far outweighs the potential need to drop them. The STEALTH 2.0 weight pocket design cleverly prevents any accidental losses.
Side fastening bands are reinforced by a main band, preventing undesired opening of the pocket and accidental release of the weights. Resistant to contact with the roof of a wreck or cave and easy to visually inspect for integrity pre dive or during a descent check. Making adjustments, moving weights and securing the straps can be done quickly, even underwater.
