This is the Apeks XL4 Ocea Stage3 Set Recycled Materials Regulator
- Compact machined first stage based on the expedition tested Apeks DS4 platform.
- Unique over-balanced diaphragm design - as the diver descends, the over-balancing feature allows the medium pressure gas in the hose to increase at a faster rate than ambient. This results in superior performance at depth.
- 2 HP ports and 4MP ports
WHAT’S IN THE BOX
1st stage, 2nd stage, Octo and hoses

The Ocea is the first of its kind – an environmentally-conscious regulator made from recycled materials and bio-plastics, manufactured in a solar-powered facility. Based on the XL4+, every single material and process was reconsidered to create the most eco-sensitive scuba diving regulator in the world. The Ocea is a truly game-changing regulator that removes five times its own weight in plastic from the environment.
