Zeagle F8 regulator joins range
Balanced diaphragm valve promises smooth performance
Zeagle has officially launched the F8, an all-new regulator with at least 20 improvements over the previous top-of-the-range unit.
The F8 was designed in partnership with sister brand Atomic Aquatics.
Zeagle says the F8 “breathes better, works harder and lasts longer than any other regulator we’ve ever made.”
better inhalation and exhaust properties
The design team have achieved a natural breathing feel, with better inhalation and exhaust properties to ensure breathing air goes in and out more smoothly and with less moisture buildup.
It promises to be more comfortable too, thanks to a new dual silicone mouthpiece with soft bite lugs and a braided Myflex hose.
The valve spring is made of high quality alloy, meaning fewer coils and less interruption of airflow to the second stage.
Inside the second stage, the newly designed diaphragm is both responsive to breathing and strong, because of the silicone molded over a low friction disk. Breathing is drier and gas bubbles away easier too, thanks to an improved exhaust.
For those who want a hardy regulator, the balanced diaphragm design and the environmentally sealed ambient chamber ensure top performance in any condition.
Trademark Atomic Aquatics signatures include the seat saving orifice, which lifts the two apart when not pressurised and prolongs the life of the regulator.
The Zeagle F8 has yet not been CE marked for sale in Europe – watch this space.
