Rating: WORTH THE EXTRA CA$H
Reviewer: Ryan W., - View all my reviews
When things go wrong at depth, the last thing you or your buddy wants to do, in an emergency, is go from some nice primary regulator to some cheap and crappy octo you have to suck the air out of. Your regulators are your life support underwater. The extra cash is worth the extra peace of mind. Who knows, when your dive buddy sees you have an ST1 as your octo, he/she just might signal out of air just to try it out!

Why Stainless Steel & Titanium?
Stainless Steel delivers virtually the same corrosion resistance as Titanium at a lower price. Stainless Steel does not require protective chrome or nickel plating processes that can be harmful to the environment and is 100% recyclable. The ST1 second stage features all-Titanium components as in the T2 and B2 models.
A Breath of Fresh Air Environmentally conscious topside...natural breathing at depth The ST1 is another industry first from Atomic Aquatics. The first stage is beautifully machined from a special grade 316 Stainless Steel that is twice the strength of brass with corrosion-resistance approaching Titanium. The use of Stainless Steel means we are doing our part for clean air when divers are out of the water. The legendary Atomic design means divers also breathe easy at depth.
