Aqua Lung Dimension i3 BCD
* SPECIAL ORDER ITEM*
An Aqua Lung first! The Dimension i3 is a back inflation BC with an integrated i3 inflation / deflation system.
Loaded with features, this innovative buoyancy compensator is built with high quality materials keeping both comfort and style in mind.
By placing the air cell behind them, the diver is more streamlined
The integrated i3 control system provides a single touch control for both inflation and deflation
Flat e-valves are very streamlined and effective. One-way design keeps water out
The multiple dump feature means that when you depress the i3 lever, all of the flat e-valves open at once! No more reaching for the wrong valve
Custom backpack is thin to keep cylinder close to your centre of gravity and efficiently distributes the cylinder weight
The Wrapture Harness System works in conjunction with the shoulder swivel buckles (patented) to prevent ride-up and supports the weight pockets
The patented SureLock II weight system provides a simple, single pull release. Loading is as simple as insert and click
Pull down oral inflator is easy to deploy and stow
A strong retractor band is used to pull in the sides of the bladder while deflating
An adjustable chest strap can be raised and lowered on a rail system
HP and MP hose routings through the back keep your entire kit low profile thus minimising drag.
The intuitive i3 will change the way you dive forever. With this innovative technology, a lever controls your ascent and descent. It's that simple. Diving made easier take control of yourself.
The i3 (patent pending) allows you to take control of your diving. Mastering buoyancy control is one of the most difficult skills to learn. The i3 not only makes the skill easier but eliminates potential out-of-control-ascents caused by a diver reaching for the wrong dump valve. The i3 also allows for rapid location and activation of the inflator to establish buoyancy at the surface in case of an emergency.
The i3 is simple and intuitive. Move the lever up to inflate; down to deflate your jacket.
Unlike a traditional inflator at the end of a floppy hose, the i3 never moves. It is stationary at the same location where your left hand normally rests. It is always in the right place at the right time.
The i3 does not utilize pneumatics or hydraulics to activate the Flat E-Valves. Therefore, there is no possibility of failure due to leaks. Using push-rod technology, as found in aircraft, the design remains simple and robust.
The i3 is just plain fun to use.
