Streamlined to your anatomy
The STEALTH 2.0 design achieves a streamlined system that stays in tune with your anatomy. Whatever position you are in and regardless of how much gas you have in the wing, the distance of the centre of the wing away from the body is minimal.
Always in control, anywhere and everywhere
The STEALTH 2.0 dump valve is located centrally to ensure it can be reached anywhere with either hand. In addition it is placed to offer maximum protection from accidental operation or from being caught or damaged in the environment.
Freedom for Wrecks
Perfectly position the wing
Because the wing has its own independent five-point mounting system, you can place the wing exactly where it needs to be.
During the dive as you mount and demount cylinders, drop stages or clip off scooters the wing can be adjusted to maintain trim. For a real squeeze of a restriction, you can even remove it to completely minimise your profile.
STEALTH 2.0 HARNESS
A Superb Foundation
The expression ‘thinking outside the box’ is often over used, but to revolutionise the sidemount system harness, that’s exactly what XDEEP had to do. Analysing the many systems already on the market was a start. They soon realised that something new and ground-breaking, something that would perform brilliantly in the Yucutan Caves as well as open water, was needed.
The STEALTH 2.0 includes some revolutionary features. Using harness webbing of differing thickness and stiffness meant a better more comfortable fit. Building true anatomical structures into the harness enhanced the diving experience. Movable D rings on the waist strap to allow for changes in tank buoyancy and control of tank position were first seen on the STEALTH 2.0 and have been widely copied since.
Quick to fit and adjust
Single piece harnesses can take up to half a day to fit properly and often need refining post dive. Because the STEALTH 2.0 has independent adjustment of the shoulder and waist straps it is quicker and easier to obtain a custom fit. Adjusting the shoulders does not affect the waist D ring positions, the crotch strap is a simple triglide adjustment.
Instructors and students can save time on their sidemount courses and actually go diving instead of constantly adjusting equipment.
Harness webbing fit for purpose
There are three different webbing types of the STEALTH 2.0 applied to best fulfil the function required.
On the waist there is a stiff and rigid webbing that enhances the ease of use and operation of the D rings for cylinder mounting. Shoulder straps are softer to improve comfort, fit and flexibility. The crotch strap is very flexible, even soft, to reduce chaffing and wear on your exposure suit.
A simple idea, elegant in application.
Tough and hardwearing
Unlike cave divers you may not be squeezing through small passages, but your system will still get wear on the back from boat dives, shore entries and even just being transported. At risk areas are protected with tough and long lasting materials that preserve the integrity of your equipment.
Take only the weight you need
Cold water diving in a drysuit with a thick undersuit requires a large amount of weight that many sidemount systems struggle to accommodate. This limits where you can place the weight and can upset balance and trim.
The design of the STEALTH 2.0 can manage the perfect placement of a 1Kg block up to over 20Kg of lead with ease. If you are in arctic water or in board shorts and a T-shirt, the weight system is flexible enough to meet your needs exactly.
Perfect Trim and Balance
The flexibility designed into the STEALTH 2.0 weight system ensures you control weight placement relative to your centre of gravity. The central weight pocket has a considerable range of movement, so it can be ideally positioned for balance. The same principle that is used in twinset diving when moving a V weight into the optimum position.
Perfect trim and balance in any configuration.
