Scubapro spent last weekend ice diving in Lake Lavarone in northern Italy.

The dive kit brand sponsored and participated in the 26-degree Ice Diving Stage.

The event was held in conjunction with Italian certification agency ANIS.

Divers learned about new products and had the chance to test the MK17/A700 Black Tech regulator.

The event was also the occasion for setting a breath-holding world record by free diver Dante Cetrioli.

He set a new record of breath-hold swimming under ice of a remarkable 85 metres.

The safety scuba diver who assisted the record attempt was using a Scubapro A700 regulator.

The A700 is environmentally sealed for freeze-resistant cold water performance.
