Thanks to its versatility, the SXS Octopus is an excellent choice for all types of diving. In fact, with few simple operations, the user can easily change the configuration of this octopus and use it with a hose coming from the right or left side.
Its slim, compact design allows the octopus to fit easily into a pocket of a BCD.
The Mares SXS Octopus is equipped with a curved bypass and large diameter which provides high airflow. This unique feature, combined with Mares' patented Vortex Assisted Design (VAD) provides divers with comfortable air flow at any depth.
Mares has also designed a new deflector to optimize the Venturi effect and reduce the risk of free-flow, ensuring smoother, more comfortable inhalation, even at depths greater than 100m.
