The new Mares Epic ADJ 82X PVD is the top-of-the-line in Mares regulators. It's certified to perform to the European EN250 standards at 200 metres deep! The new Mares 82X PVD first stage regulator is a readical departure from any existing regulators.
The New Standard in Regulators
Certified Performance at 200 Metres
Proven Technology at 400 Metres
The Mares EPIC ADJ 82X PVD regulator set achieved EN250 work of breathing requirements at the depth of 200 metres at a breathing rate of 62.5 L/min while using a breathing mix of 6.7% Oxygen, 83.3% Helium and 10% Nitrogen. This gas mixture has a density at 200 metres equivalent to the density of air at 50 metres.
Boasting Unique and Exceptional Technical Features
The 1st and 2nd stages are treated with a Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD), offering unbeatable scratch and corrosion resistance, protecting your regulator and ensuring long-lasting performance.
Mares 82X PVD First Stage
The Mares 82X PVD balanced diaphragm first stage, guarantees unparalleled breathing and consistent performance at any depth. The 1st stage has a swivel turret with 5 low pressure (LP) ports (4 radial, and 1 vertical), meeting the needs of every diver, including advanced or technical divers with specific LP hose configurations.
All LP ports offer Mares' patented Dynamic Flow Control (DFC), for elevated and consistent airflow at all depths. Another unique feature of this first stage are two pre-oriented high pressure (HP) ports, angled opposite each other. This allows the diver to use a pressure gauge and/or computer transmitter. Additionally, the 1st stage can be positioned with the swivel turret facing up or down, providing maximum freedom of choice.
The 82X first stage is equipped with Mares' Auto Sealing Technology (AST) system, providing excellent protection against intrusion of water or unwanted matter. A very simple mechanical solution keeps the internal mechanism dry and free of obstruction, consequently providing superior reliability.
The Mares 82X 1st stage is available in INT and DIN versions.
Mares Epic ADJ Second Stage
The Epic ADJ second stage is today's benchmark for all regulators on the market. The metal body 2nd stage is unbeatable for cold water diving, extremely durable, while being elegant at the same time.
This second stage is pneumatically balanced, offering effortless and comfortable breathing in every situation. Divers will appreciate the option to adjust cracking effort (initial effort to start the flow of air) by simply turning an adjustment knob. Designed to be easily adjusted even if wearing thick gloves.
The innovative Twin Power System offers further adjustment, allowing the diver to control the rate of airflow. A simple turn increases air flow on demand; designed for a diver working hard or making very deep dives.
Vortex Assisted Design (VAD) allows for unobstructed airflow and consistent natural breathing at any depth.
The purge button is large and on a pivot, providing effortless use in any circumstance.
All of these unique characteristics of the 1st and 2nd stages combined, position the Mares Epic ADJ 82X at the top of the line. Maximum performance for the most demanding divers.

Mares Epic ADJ 82X PVD Regulator Technologies
All Metal Technology
Outstanding mechanical reliability and high thermal conductivity make our metal 2nd stages extremely long lasting and ideal for cold water dives. The high thermal conductivity of metal reduces also the dry mouth feeling during the dive.
DFC - Dynamic Flow Control
Minimizes intermediate pressure drop during inhalation thus maximising gas delivery, especially under extreme conditions.
ACT Valve - Advanced Coating Technology
Advanced Coating Technology
The new valve in the 'X' systems increases durability by an astounding 600%, even under the most extreme conditions.
New, flow control manages the delivery rate of your gas, from natural breathing to power breathing. The former is the traditional way of breathing a Mares regulator, (VAD) while the latter (VAD+) provides an extra push when you need it.
VAD - Vortex Assisted Design
The air bypass tube delivers air to the mouthpiece creating a swirling vortex with a low pressure area in the center that keeps the diaphragm down during inhalation, for very sensitive and easy breathing at all depths.
Patented design which reduces the impact of water flow onto the second stage diaphragm, thus eliminating free flows even in strong currents.
Extreme light weight and exceptional softness guarantee the maximum freedom of movement.
