Legend LUX ACD
Legend LUX ACD
When you dive with a Legend, you’re diving with the best. So why not get one that looks the best too?
There is no mistaking the rich look of pink gold. This head-turner exudes quality. The tougher-than-nails PVD finish will keep its good looks too as the pink gold is much harder and durable than traditional chrome plating.
The Legend LUX ACD regulator offers lush and fine detailing for the diver who wants inner touch on his high performing Aqua Lung Legend regulator.
The “Pink Gold” components are treated with a specific and special coating like the one used by Rolex and some other watches brand, called DLC (Diamond Like Carbon), which is not a chrome plating. PVD coating is used on the Legend components for durability, which is thesame coating used on F1 engine valves to have a better resistance on abrasion, impact, corrosion, which is to increase the hardness.
The Legend Lux will be supplied with a special Black & Pink Gold regulator box and comes with a Special Black and Gold Regulator Bag.
Auto Closure Device (ACD) - keeps corrosive water out of the first stage inlet by automatically closing as the Legend is removed from the cylinder valve
This prevents internal lubrication from washing away
Safer for elevated percentages of oxygen
Unique over-balanced, diaphragm design results in superior performance at depth
2 HP ports and 4 MP ports are angled for optimum hose routing
An environmental dry system keeps water out of the main spring chamber thus preventing ice buildup and keeping silt and contamination out
Available in yoke connector
Compatible with up to 40% O2 right out of the box
Master Breathing System (MBS) - The MBS is a new, simple and effective way to adjust the breathing performance of your Legend LUX. The MBS controls two functions at one time. It controls the direction of air, which alters the venturi effect, as well as changes the opening effort. One control – two functions, it doesn’t get easier.
Pneumatically-balanced second stage results in smooth, easy breathing
The Comfo-Bite™ mouthpiece virtually eliminates jaw-fatigue
A heat exchanger (patented) which surrounds the valve mechanism, dissipates the cold caused by gas expansion while drawing in the warmth of the ambient water
The ergonomic exhaust tee channels the exhaust bubbles out of your field of vision. The design also contributes to a reduction in exhalation effort
Attached to a 29” braided Aqua Flex hose. These hoses are lightweight and extremely pliable which eliminates any tugging on the mouthpiece
