The world the diver moves in is constantly changing. It is quite literally a fluid environment that calls for constant adaptation. The buoyancy compensator (BC) is the platform of the SCUBA diving system that provides flexibility and stability. It facilitates precise changes in underwater body position, allowing you to effortlessly see the world around you. SCUBAPRO offers three different categories of BCs offering different buoyancy behavior and trim under the water, as well as stability on the surface. All conform securely to the diver’s body to minimize drag and provide a comfortable, non-restrictive fit around shoulders and waist.
Bella was specifically designed and meticulously tailored by SCUBAPRO for female divers. This front-adjustable BC incorporates an exciting array of renowned SCUBAPRO features, including a SCUBAPRO-exclusive wrap-around bladder, which retains its cradle-like shape even when fully inflated, meaning it hugs the body comfortably in all situations.
