Scubapro Launches Updated 'Black Tech' Carbon Fibre Regulator Set

Scubapro has launched an updated version of its 2020 updated MK19 EVO first stage together with a carbon-fibre version of its G260 primary second stage, marketed as the go-to regulator for extreme cold, silty water and technical diving.

The MK19 EVO balanced diaphragm first stage, relaunched in 2020 with a reduced profile and a new environmentally sealed dry chamber, combined the cold-water performance of the MK17 EVO with the versatility – and swivelling turret – of Scubapro's flagship MK25 EVO first stage. As with the MK25, the four high-flow low-pressure ports and one axial 'super-high-flow' LP port allow for ease of hose routing, together with the two standard HP ports of the barrel.

The new MK19 EVO BT retains the same brass body as the chrome-plated version, but is finished with Scubapro's new 'Black Tech DLC (Diamond-Like Carbon)' coating for durability in even the most extreme diving conditions, and which 'not only lends a technical look to the system, it also protects against scratches and the ravages of saltwater and corrosion.'

While retaining its large diaphragm, internal metal components and high-flow exhaust valve for excellent breathing sensitivity and resistance to freezing, the durability of the new G260 Carbon BT balanced second stage is enhanced with the addition of lightweight carbon fibre front cover to its technopolymer casing. The new second stage is 24g lighter than its predecessor.

'The MK19 EVO BT/G260 Carbon BT is a rugged, reliable, and sharp-looking regulator system that delivers solid breathing performance in all diving conditions and water temperatures,' said Joe Stella, Group Vice President at Scubapro. 'It’s a great choice for avid and professional divers who appreciate high performance in demanding conditions.'
