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

Rating: Atomic SS1 Octo Review - $379.00 - Scuba Gear Customer Reviews
Reviewer: Craig Hutcheson
I WAS SURPRISED AT HOW EASY IT WAS TO INSTALL THE SSI - LESS THAN 10 MINUTES WITH 1/2 THE TIME MAKING SURE THE ZIP TIES WERE AS SNUG AS POSSIBLE AND THE ENDS CLIPPED SMOOTH. WORKS FLAWLESSLY (AS ADVERTISED). I THOUGHT AN O-RING WOULD BE PROVIDED FOR THE SCREW-ON CONNECTION (BETWEEN THE BC AIR SUPPLY HOSE AND THE SSI). BUT IT TURNS OUT THAT NONE WAS NEEDED AS THE ENTIRE SYSTEM SEALED PERFECTLY. THE CONTROL BUTTONS WERE VERY SMOOTH (UNLIKE SOME OTHERS THAT SEEM ROUGH AROUND THE EDGES - HANGING UP BRIEFLY AS THEY ARE PRESSED). ALREADY CONSIDERING ADDING ANOTHER ONE FOR MY RIG. GREAT JOB ATOMIC.

Rating: Titanium "Safe Second" by Atomic review
Reviewer: Jason Griffiths
I only have good things to say about the SS1. I figured if I was going to spend this much on a second, I may as well bump up for the titanium and am pleased I did. Two things I would say to anyone considering the SS1 are this: 1. Be sure its compatible with your BCD/ BCJ 2. Note that the angle of the SS1 is at about 90*: not ideal for sharing air but still an industry standard. Overall I am pleased with my purchase of the SS1. Although new to diving, I can only imagine if everyone invested in high quality equipment like Atomic, we may never have to share air.

Rating: Fantastic product, works great
Reviewer: David Lee  -  View all my reviews
This is a fantastic product. I was able to easily replace the BC inflator valve with this regulator in about 20 minutes ... would only take 5 if I wasnt going really slow to be careful. Works like a charm. Its not the most regulated air supply in the world, I did try it underwater and it breathed well but a bit overpowering, I wouldnt want to use it as my main regulator. But for a backup its perfect and one less hose to deal with. Easy to take off after every dive so I could bring it to my room with my other expensive gear.

This is one of the best octos out there, bought myself and my son the ss1 and have used it in fresh and salt water and it performs great, from temps as low as 45. used it in panama at 80 ft just to test and use and it breathed as good as my primary. you cant go wrong with this.

Rating: Atomic SS1 Titanium Octo - Outstanding Reg
Reviewer: Donald Dutcher
I bought this because I needed an alternate air source for my travel rig. What I liked most was the fact that the regulator was removeable and using attachments you can change it to a different BC without having to cut the bands off every time. Also that you can remove it for travel. I did 7 dives in the Caymans with this reg as my octo. At times during the dives, I intentionally switched over to it and it performed flowlessly. It breaths as good as the name brand regs I have used and it cleared easily, even at 105 feet. Although I have not yet tried it in cold water, I have no dought it will work fine. BOTTOM LINE - this is the best alternate reg ive used. This is my first atomic purchase and I am very happy and impressed. I spent the extra on the titanium because of salt water use, but im sure the regular model is just as good.

Reviewer: Wayne C.
I purchased the atomic ss1 and have been very happy with its performance and durability. I was subject to a pretty violent wave thrashing in Maui Hawaii in September and most of the gear was sandblasted. Without cleaning I continued to dive with no problems. I would recommend this octo to anyone.

Rating: Good performing integrated octopus.
Reviewer: Stacy major
Very easy breathing at depth, inflator takes getting used to because it is considerably faster than my old integrated octo but it very is tunable when you get used to the buttons resistance.

Questions and Answers for Atomic SS1 Octo:


  • willem:

    is the Atomic SS1 Octo compatable with the ScubaPro Go Travel Light BC XLarge?

    Bob  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Yes

  • eugenio:

    Is the SS1 compatible with an aqualung Pro LT BC do i have to change anything in order to fit the SS1 ?

    Bob  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    The Atomic SS1 is compatible with all BC's except by Mares and TUSA models with the A.P.A. Active Purge Assist inflator system. The Seaquest/Aqualung BCD's require the purchase of an upgrade adapter that is available at the time of purchase.

  • Adam:

    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

    Bill  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    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

  • jeff:

    Will the Atomic SSI work with the Scubapro Air 2 inflator?

    Aaron  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hi Jeff The quick disconnect from a ScubaPro Air 2 can work with the Atomic SS1.

  • jeff:

    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.

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Jeff, I would go with the SS1. It comes with all the attachment you will need for all of your BCD's. The other versions do not come with the attachments for the different size corrugated hose that different manufacture use.

  • alexander:

    Does the SSI come with the low pressure hose included? Are there different hose lengths? If so, what lengths are there?

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Ahmed, yes the hose comes with the unit. Also it is a standard length hose 24". There are after market hoses you can get that would come in different lengths.

  • zachary:

    I purchased few items lately. How can I get the discount while checking out. I would have spent over 500$ in the last 3 weeks

    Aaron  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hi Zachary, You have to create an account then the discount will apply as you buy things.

  • Zack:

    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!!!

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Zack, we currently do not have any power inflator/Octo all in one unit that will fit the Cressi-Sub travel light BCD.

  • Peter:

    Is the SS1 Octo compatible with the Cressi AirTravel?

    Bob  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    No.

  • Kevin:

    Compatibility , compatibility , compatibility How about, will the SS1work with the Xdeep ghost? I would think it will, but better check before ordering. Thanks & All the best Kevin

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Kevin, yes this will work for the SS1.

  • Rick:

    I have a Mares Dragon BC and am looking at the SS1 as a integrated 2nd. WIll I need an adaptor ring or will it work as is? Thanks

    Aaron  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hi Rick, The Atomic SS1 comes with adapters that can fit the Mares BCD.

  • Lee:

    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?

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Lee, you would need to connect the power inflator that comes with the SS1. The power inflator that comes with the BCD will not work for the SS1. Other than that no you would not need any thing else.

  • Lee:

    Can you tell me what sku number on your site will do what I need?

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Lee, what are you looking to do. The sku number for this is 035069.

  • Lee:

    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?

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Lee, no you have everything that you will need to use these items together.

  • mark:

    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?

    Bob  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Since that discussion Atomic has added the appropriate adapter for the smaller diameter Cressi bcd.

  • Doug:

    Is the SS1 suitable for cold water? How cold?

    Bob  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    The SS1 is rated for all recreational diving temperatures.


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.
