When we talk about a regulator, we always talk about a complete regulator set consisting of a first and second stage. We strongly recommend that divers buy both parts of a regulator of the same brand. This way you ensure that your regulator can perform optimally.
We receive many questions about regulators every day. Which one is suitable for my dive trip, which brand and model is the best and how do I choose a regulator that suits me? In this blog you can read what types of regulators exist and for which types of dives you can use them.
Our entry level regulators are simple and, in most cases, unbalanced. These piston-controlled regulators provide the same breathing comfort regardless of depth and cylinder pressure. These regulators are often not suitable for cold water (water below 12 ℃) and are often used for holiday use. Examples of entry level regulators are the Scubapro MK2 EVO R195, the Mares Rover 15X and the MK 11 with C73.
Scubapro MK2 EVO R195
This regulator is ideal for divers who want to keep their dives simple and affordable. The MK2 EVO and R195 together form a reliable system that is easy to maintain and use. This regulator has a larger piston than other regulators, which ensures better breathing performance.
Mares Rover 15X
The Mares Rover 15x is an affordable regulator, but with top segment specifications. Thanks to its smart technical specifications, this regulator provides natural breathing at all depths.
Scubapro MK11 C73
The Scubapro MK11 C73 will be available soon (December 2017) and promises many great opportunities for starting divers.
Mid-range regulators offer a lot more comfort than those at entry level. These regulators are almost always balanced. They are optimized and offer the same pleasant breathing comfort throughout the dive. These regulators are almost always suitable for diving in cold water. Examples of mid-range regulators are the Scubapro K17 EVO S620Ti, the Mares Prestige s15x and the Apeks XTX50 Regulator.
Scubapro MK17 EVO S620Ti
No matter how cold the water is, the Scubapro MK17 EVO S620Ti makes it possible to breathe easily because it is fully protected from water. Even under extreme diving conditions, this regulator ensures a stable air supply. The regulator is made of high quality, durable materials such as titanium and membrane.

Our high-end regulators are manufactured using durable, lightweight materials. Many of these regulators are made of titanium. This strong but lightweight material offers very good corrosion resistance, even in salt water. Our range of high-end regulators consists of technical sets. These sets are very suitable for the technical diver who makes deep dives in cold water. Examples of high-end regulators are the Scubapro MK25 Evo A700, the Mares Fusion 52x and the Aqualung Legend LX Supreme.
Scubapro MK25 Evo A700
The combination of the Scubapro MK25 Evo and Scubapro A700 ensures high airflow for all types of dives. The integrated air balanced valve technology allows exceptionally high breathing performance. This regulator offers excellent protection against cold water.
The Mares Fusion 52x has been renewed and is extremely popular thanks to the new looks and technical changes. The new model features a first stage high pressure valve with improved airflow. In the second stage you can breathe normally, but also at power level. This regulator is a must-have among divers.
Aqualung Legend LX Supreme
The Aqualung Legend LX Supreme ensures that you can breathe light at extreme depths. The Dry Room technique is used to keep the moving parts of your first stage dry. This regulator is optimized for maximum flow and offers optimal comfort during diving.
