NEW 2017 Blue Aqualung Axiom BCD
The Axiom is a durable, full-featured BC that boasts amazing Comfort and Fit. This ADV Style, Wrap-Around Jacket gets its noticeable Comfort and Support from Aqua Lung's Proprietary WRAPTURE Harness System (patent pending). The WRAPTURE Harness System, utilizing a Specialized Back-Plate, Valve Retention Strap and Swivel Shoulder Buckles to provides Unsurpassed Comfort. The WRAPTURE Harness System not only Hugs-the-Contours of the Body providing Superior Comfort and Stability, it also Supports the Scuba Cylinder in a way that has never been more Comfortable to the Diver. The WRAPTURE allows you to Stand-up-Straight in Total Comfort while the Cylinder remains Perfectly-Vertical and pulled in Close while preventing "Ride-Up" at the Surface. This Comfort, along with the Innovative Grip-Lock Tank Band and the Sure-Lock Integrated Weight System will make the Axiom the new standard for recreational divers.
The Grip-Lock Tank Band System makes Attachment to a Cylinder Easier than ever before. Gone are the days of complicated web weaving and you don't have to worry about pinching your fingers with the innovative finger saver feature (patent pending). The Axiom BCD features the Patented and Innovative Sure-Lock II Mechanical Weight Release System with 20 to 30 lbs (9 to 13.5 kg) Capacity (sizes dependent). The Sure-Lock II is Easy to Load and remains Secure until you want to release it. The Sure-Lock II Weight Pockets align themselves. Just Insert-the-Pocket until it "Clicks". A simple, Single-Pull Release is all that is needed to jettison the weights in an emergency. The Axiom also has Fixed Non-Releasable Weight Pockets attached to the Cylinder Band with Capacities from 10lbs (4.5kg).
