Made of a ballistic Cordura material, the outer shell provides maximum abrasion resistance and yet is flexible enough to streamline and fit firmly around the diver. The inner bladder is made of rugged nylon and thus offers additional protection against damage. The fittings for the inflator and the dump valve are ultrasonically welded to the bladder making them highly robust. European high-tech manufacturing.
Overall, the BLADE wing has three inflator / dump valves connection points. The inflator can be mounted either on the left or right side of the wing. The connection point at the top is for a dump valve that runs over the shoulder. This offers maximum ease of buoyancy and safety.
In technical diving, the upper connection can be closed with an extremely stable blank plug. The blank plug is included in delivery.
In total, the BLADE has 5 Bungee Attachment Loops (three in the upper and two in the lower area). Optimal positioning is thus always guaranteed. On the inside is the attachment strap, where the wing can be attached to the harness. Moving the wing up or down is done within a matter of seconds.
...for the sidemount purists
The BLADE system can also be combined with a PURE Harness. Our aimed is at the purist of sidemount divers, the minimalistic sidemount diver.
The BLADE Pure Harness is configured via an upper and lower plate.
The BLADE wing is simply attached to the plates via two bookscrews.
As simple as it gets: The BLADE PURE!
