And the reviews are in:
"No doubt about it. Atomic has raised the bar with the SS1, creating the first safe second that really could be compared to a high-performance primary. And the best news - it will fit on most any brand of BC, thanks to a unique adapter device." - Sport Diver magazine
"The SS1 breathes better than many primary use regulators and generated the best overall simulator performance among the integrated inflator/regs...and earned the highest ergonomic scores of all the units we tested" - Scubalab

Is the SS1 compatible with an aqualung Pro LT BC do i have to change anything in order to fit the SS1 ?
im super new to diving and i want good equipment. is this a good buy and what would be a good bc for this product. i looking to be as streamlined as possible. oh is this compatible with nitrox? what would be a good wrist mounted computer? any help would be much appreciated. thanks
The Atomic SS1 is top of the line and will be a great choice. The Oceanic Veo 3.0 is a great choice for a simple to use, full function, wrist computer. http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-17/009267/Oceanic-Veo-3.0-Air-Nitrox-Dive-Computer.html
I have a zeagle BC and several other BCs all with Air 2s. Since SP Air 2, Zeagle OCto and the Atomic SSI all work with the SP Air 2 inflator, which one is the best. I see you guys are having a sale on the Zeagle. BTW, can any of these work on an Oceanic Excursion BC? I have a SP Air 2 on an old Chute 2 but I was able to get a 1 inch hose replacement.
Does the SSI come with the low pressure hose included? Are there different hose lengths? If so, what lengths are there?
I have a travel light cressi bcd. Which air 2 octo would be compatible with it? I am interested in the atomic air 2 octo mainly. Please advise. Thanks!!!
Will an Atomic SS1 Octo fit into a ScubaPro Air2 inflation hose? or must the Atomic inflation hose be used? Thanks.
My wife has a Seaquest Diva LX thats about 9 years old lightly used. Will the SS1 fit on this bcd? Thanks
Yes the SS1 will fit the Seaquest Diva LX with the angled hose adapter for Seaquest BCs. The adapter can be found as an "add" link on the SS1 page: http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-33/035069/Atomic-SS1-Octo.html
I want to change out the hose that comes with the SS1 to a low pressure braided hose. Could you recommend a braided hose that is compatible?
Hello, you would have to go with a regulator braided hose with a type 2 adaptor. http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-37/034156/XS-Scuba-MIFLEX-Braided-Regulator-Hose.html http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-37/034113/IST-Standard-To-Air-2-Inflator-Adapter.html
I want to use the SS1 Ti with a Zeagle Ranger LTD and Sherwood Convertible Pro Valve 3000 PSI on a 19 CF pony bottle. Do I need an additional hose to connect them and if so, which one? Do I need anything else?
Ive got the Ranger LTD, tank, regulator and SS1 in my cart, I just need to know if I need anything else to connect it all so my BC inflation and safe 2nd go through the SS1. In other words does it come with the HP line to connect the tank to the SS1 and do I need any adapters to connect the Ranger LTD inflation hose to the SS1?
I read in an earlier discussion that the atomic ss1 is not compatible with the cressi travel light bc. While diving in the west Indies earlier this year I dove with someone who had an ss1 on his travel light.... has atomic added more adaptors so this will work or was I wrong?
Atomic Aquatics SS1 Safe Seconds
Why The SS1?
The SS1 is the newest and most sophisticated product of its type, taking the concept to new levels of convenience, reliability and performance as only Atomic Aquatics can deliver.
The SS1 Breathes Just Like A Primary
Atomic engineers a new level of performance into safe seconds
The SS1 is truly a fresh innovation on a longtime concept. While others prioritize the convenience of the combination, Atomic placed equal importance on superior materials, reliability and high performance natural breathing.
SS1 Performance & Durability
The SS1 delivers high flow rates to a diver at depth with a minimum of effort. It is very stable and not prone to unnecessary free-flow or leakage from water movement while swimming or during entries/exits. The inflator/deflator is easy to operate with soft surfaced buttons placed where they can be easily operated with one hand. The SS1 is constructed of quality materials not found in any other safe second on the market. The quick disconnect coupling, regulator valve body, and inflation and deflation stems are machined from type 316 Stainless Steel or Titanium to avoid corrosion that would eventually seize components or degrade performance and function. The regulator orifice and lever are Titanium for maximum strength and reliability.
SS1 Adaptability & Convenience
One of the most unique features of the SS1 is its adaptability to almost any BCD. We have designed a set of adapters to fit virtually every popular BCD brand available (and many that are not). The adapters also include components for attaching the cable exhaust feature of your existing BCD (if applicable). The SS1 features a quick disconnect not only on the low-pressure hose, but the BCD hose as well. The adapters that fit the SS1 to the BCD are connected to the SS1 with a threaded collar that can be easily unscrewed to detach it completely from the BCD enabling you to carry or store the SS1 with your primary regulator and gauges. The SS1 offers pneumatic or oral inflation for buoyancy control and back-up breathing in one small package.
• High-Flow LP Hose & Disconnect
The high-flow, low pressure disconnect is interchangeable with many other models yet smaller size and lighter in weight.
• Multi-Configuration Adaptability
The first product of its kind adaptable to a wide variety of BCD hoses and sizes. The SS1 can be fitted to virtually any make or model BCD. (U.S. Patent # 6,761,163)
• Ergonomic Controls
Large oversized and ergonomically-shaped buttons are easy to find for pneumatic or oral inflation/deflation. They are easy to distinguish and faced with soft tactile rubber surfaces.
• Low-Profile Elliptical Design
The elliptically-shaped body of the SS1 lies flat against the BCD keeping it out of the way and reducing drag.
• Unique & Convenient BCD Quick-Disconnect System
This feature gives you the option to remove the SS1 from the jacket for transport with your regulator system or use on another BC. (U.S. Patent # 6,761,163)
• Atomic Patented Seat Saving Orifice
Seat wear is the first cause of regulator leaks and performance degradation. The stainless steel dynamic orifice is pressure energized and only contacts the rubber seat when in use.
• Titanium Lever
This high-strength metal part is the link to your air supply and will never fail due to rust or corrosion.
• Integrated Purge Cover
One-piece flexible cover allows purge of the regulator when depressed anywhere on the cover surface.
• 2-Year / 300 Dive Service Interval
The same high-quality components, materials and designs as our primary regulators mean the same trouble-free operation and the unparalleled Atomic Aquatics service interval.
• Limited Lifetime Warranty
Just like the warranty on all Atomic regulators, it is not contingent on proof of annual service.
