Side Mount revolution has begun!
While designing Stealth 2.0 set, xDeep analyzed the side mount harnesses available on the market, taking into account their good and bad points. However, Stealth 2.0 is not a copy of one of them but a totally new, revolutionary structure which works well in every cave / wreck diving environment.
The stealth 2.0 Side Mount System comprises of several elements, the configuration of which can be adjusted exactly to your needs.
We are certain that no other side mount system is such versatile as the Stealth 2.0
– complete Stealth 2.0 side mount harness
– buoyancy compensator (BC)
The revolutionary Stealth 2.0 system provides enormous possibilities for the configuration of the harness depending on your needs.
The system is based on perfect side mount Stealth 2.0 harness which you can combine with several types of ballast pockets of various capacities.
If you dive in a wetsuit, the Stealth 2.0 will make it possible to mount standard double-part xDEEP ballast pockets, which enables you to drop the weight in cases of emergency.
Double-shell buoyancy compensator of revolutionary design
Double-shell structure of the BC with outer shell made of Cordura 1100 dTEX provides the highest level of safety for wreck diving.
The Stealth 2.0 BC has a unique multi-chamber design to fit the body tightly, regardless of how full it is. Its anatomical shape makes it extremely comfortable.
Weight issue finally solved!
Do you use drysuit with thick insulation? Have you thought about how you’re going to mount the weight in your side mount harness?
While designing Stealth 2.0 harness, we aimed at solving the said problem. 10lbs ? 20lbs ? No problem! Even if you need more than 30 lbs we have a solution.
The unique Stealth 2.0 weight system in a very flexible way enables you to adjust the number of weights to your needs – regardless of whether you use a 3mm-thick wet suit or dry suit with thick undergarment.
Smooth adjustment of the center of gravity
As you perfectly know, the correct distribution of weight is the key element in reaching the ideal trim. Also in side mount. In the case of twinset you reach that by moving the V-weight into its proper place.
The xDEEP weight system enables smooth and precise adjustment of the position of the center of gravity – the central weight pocket can be moved within significant range.
What is the effect? Ideal trim in any configuration.
Total freedom of movement
Since the junction points of the Stealth 2.0 harness were placed exactly within the natural axis of the body’s rotation, the shoulder straps always have the correct length regardless of the position you take under the water.
Simply put, nothing pulls nor restricts your freedom of movement.
Moreover, the weight system was designed to provide maximum comfort – the central pocket can be moved relative to the lower junction point of the harness, and has no resistance when you turn your body around.
STEALTH 2.0 harness is so designed that each of the straps can be adjusted separately.
It is a huge advantage since in contrast with the side mount harness made of one piece of strap, a change in the length of shoulder straps does not cause the D-Rings to move to your waist strap.
The adjustment of the harness is much quicker. If you are the instructor, you know how advantageous this is. Why waste precious time during the course?
Three areas of webbing stiffness
Various parts of the side mount harness require different level of stiffness of the webbing.
The waist strap is very rigid, and consequently the D-Rings work better and the harness is definitely more stable. The shoulder straps are softer, which makes them more flexible around the shoulders. The crotch strap is very soft to prevent wear through the dry suit.
It is a unique solution which perceptibly improves the comfort of the harness user.
Easy replacement of each part
Regardless of the harness structure, the webbing is the element which wears out the fastest. If we fixed them permanently, then after wearing out, we would have to replace the whole harness.
Think about it: would you buy a backplate with the webbing fixed for good?
In the STEALTH 2.0 side mount harness you can replace the webbing by yourself since each of the straps is easy to dismount.
