Atomic Aquatics M1 Regulator
The M1 employs state-of-the-art metals specifically chosen for extreme diving situations. Monel parts are used internally in the first stage for high strength, corrosion-resistance and oxygen compatibility. 316 Stainless Steel, multi-layer Zirconium coated Brass, and Titanium are used throughout the second stage. The M1 valve body is Zirconium/Nickel over Brass and the seat saving orifice is Stainless Steel.
Designed For Challenging Conditions
Engineered by Atomic for specialty diving – rec or tech
The M1 has an expanded performance range to meet almost any diving condition imaginable, whether Recreational or Technical. Accomplished specialty divers will appreciate this regulator designed to fulfill virtually any need or diving scenario. The M1 is built on the same platform as the world acclaimed T2 and B2 regulators.

Here are some important answers to frequent questions regarding Atomic regulators...
What is Natural Breathing?
Atomic Aquatics has achieved what no other manufacturer has in a high-performance regulator – Natural Breathing. All Atomic regulators breathe with a natural and controlled air delivery sensation at any depth or breathing rate. Inhalation on the surface will feel the same as it does during your deepest dive. This is in part due to the AFC (Automatic Flow Control) employed in our second stages. This patented innovation is a simple device that adjusts the airflow automatically to compensate for the effects of depth. Atomic Aquatics regulators are the smoothest breathing regulators available...period.
What are the diving benefits of Titanium?
First, it is unbelievably lightweight which reduces stress during your dive and makes it a perfect travel regulator. Second, Titanium has no equal for corrosion resistance which means more safety, reliability and repeatable performance. And finally, its beautiful appearance stands apart from any other regulator.
Unparalleled light weight means less stress
In our mission to invigorate the diving experience, the first priority is on reducing stress – travel stress, gearing-up stress, jaw-clinch stress. The best way is to use the lightest material possible. But light weight must never compromise strength or durability. Titanium is the perfect solution. When you hold a Titanium Atomic regulator in your hand, you immediately realize the difference from other regulators. That means less stress for you from packing your gear bag, to donning, to even the final minutes of a long dive.
