Aqua Lung Legend Regulator Line Expands
(DiverWire) Ten years ago, Aqua Lung set the standard for performance regulators with the launch of the Legend series, aptly named after the pioneering ocean explorer, and Aqua Lung founder, Captain Jacques-Yves Cousteau. Now, they’ve done it again. In recent news release, the company talks about the growth of the Legend line.
“For the past decade, our Legend regulators have been somewhat of an icon in the industry,” said Olivier Laguette, director of marketing for Aqua Lung. “And we’ve now developed technologies that make the Legend collection even better.
The new and improved Legend collection features three regulators: The Legend, Legend LX and the brand-new Legend LUX.
Each regulator comes with yoke and DIN connectors in either Standard, for optimal performance in water temperatures greater than 50 degrees, or Supreme, for water temperatures below 50 degrees.
Slightly smaller and lighter, the new Legend regulators provide improved performance with a modified yoke knob for better drainage and a spring-loaded Auto Closure Device (ACD) that snaps shut automatically to prevent water from getting into the device.
Both the Legend LX and Legend LUX have a patented dual control system, rather than a knob and switch, to control the opening effort. The Master Breathing System (MBS) easily controls both the venturi and opening effort automatically and simultaneously, allowing for smoother, more natural breathing.
“The reborn collection is incredibly quiet and smooth and makes breathing effortless,” added Laguette.
The Legend and Legend LX both come in traditional silver while the new Legend LUX comes in rose gold. Supreme regulators come in a satin finish, and Standard regulators come in basic chrome.
The new collection will be available in December from authorized Aqua Lung dealers across the country. Styles range in price from $585.00 to $1095.00 depending on the model. For specific stores carrying Aqua Lung products, log onto www.aqualung.com or call 760-597-5000.
