In celebration of its 40th anniversary, Apeks has just released the Black Sapphire regulator.
According to the UK-based manufacturer, the stunning-looking metal cover, which is machined from aircraft grade anodised metal, improves performance in cold water. First stage performance in cold water has also been improved with a heat-exchanger that comes fitted as a standard. Five ports allow for flexible hose routing, and a unique carbon-coloured hose with both a second and first stage swivel makes it more comfortable in use. Black Sapphire will only be available in a limited quantity and follows Black Pearl, the company’s 30th anniversary regulator, which has gone on to become a much sought after collector’s item
