Offering full CE certification and performance that is on par with the finest regulators on the market, the IST Premium Balanced Diaphragm DIN Style Antifreeze Regulator Bundle, 5 IP Ports consists of an R8/5 first stage and O-60 second stage, with included large bore intermediate pressure hose. This combination is well suited for cold water, deep dives and demanding profiles, but can also be fine-tuned for smooth, responsive gas delivery in more relaxed conditions.
The IST R8/5 first stage, one of the best ever tested by Scuba Diving Magazine’s ScubaLab, is an upgrade from the IST R-8 reg, design engineered to prevent freezing when diving in cold water. The R8/5 starts with the same high quality, balanced diaphragm design, but adds one more intermediate pressure port at the end of the swivel turret. In all, the swivel turret houses two high pressure and five intermediate pressure ports.
The O-60 second stage is equipped with a metal balancing tube and a pair of user adjustments: the dive/pre-dive thumb lever detunes the reg to minimize freeflows on the surface, and the breathing resistance knob lets you regulate airflow as you descend to greater depths. Comes with our high-spec, large bore intermediate pressure hose (max. service pressure @ 34.5 BAR / 500psi) which flows sufficient breathing air even when the demand is heavy. Includes comfort mouthpiece with bite tabs.
The R860 is designed for divers of all skill levels, and for water conditions ranging from the tropics to the arctic.
First stage intermediate pressure setting @ 9.5~10.0 bar (137~145psi)
