Scubapro mk25 evo / a700 Black Tech
Like the original A700, the A700 CARBON BLACK TECH’s casing is full metal to take advantage of the extremely high heat exchange rate that makes this second stage such a great choice for cold-water diving. However, the screw-down front cover, in place of metal, is hand-made out of carbon fibre, the same material you find on aircraft and high-speed race cars. Carbon fibre is extremely lightweight and, unlike metal that can change shape when dropped or struck against a hard object, carbon fibre can resist substantial shocks without damage.
Performance-wise, the MK25 EVO A700 CARBON BLACK TECH retains the same muscular performance as the all-metal A700. Its air-balanced valve technology and oversized exhaust valve work in conjunction with a well designed sectional exhaust tee, a first-rate purge and responsive user controls to create a tech-tough breather with effortless inhalation and an ease of exhalation that is unmatched. It’s now just lighter and tougher.
Finishing off this premium air delivery system is a DLC (Diamond-Like Carbon) BLACK TECH coating that’s applied to both first and second stages. This unique coating not only lends a sleek technical look to the system, its scratch- and corrosion-resistant properties perform an important function in protecting the reg against the strains and stresses of technical diving as well as the ravages of the saltwater environment.
