Apeks DST / XTX50 Regulator
The XTX50 regulator brings the high performance of Apeks’ top end regulators down to a more affordable budget, and is our most popular Apeks regulator. The DST first stage gives you plenty of ports – 2x HP and 4x LP as standard, on a swivel turret for perfect hose routing. As you’d expect from Apeks it is an over balanced diaphragm based reg and it’s environmentally sealed first stage means the XTX50 can be used in the coldest of waters.
The XTX 40 is supplied with a longer yellow braided hose and high visibility trim and cover. The octopus uses the same internal mechanism and provides the same level of performance as the XTX 50 but lacks the external inhalation adjustment and the additional interchangeable exhaust cover (compact cover fitted as standard). The housing is reversible as per the XTX 50.
