Dive Professionals Praise Dive Rite XT Regulator's Performance


Divers progressing beyond open water training realize that regulator performance is critical

Released on: 2/13/2013

Team Dive Rite understands the value of diving top performing equipment. As an advanced diving gear manufacturer for over 25 years, Dive Rite is staffed with an active group of tech divers and is led by Lamar Hires, a pioneer of technical dive gear development and technical dive training. Dive Rite’s recent introduction of the XT Regulator is gaining popularity with the recreational community as advanced open water divers are praising the XT Regulator for its performance at a reasonable price.

“As a diver progresses from those first intimidating open water dives to a more adventurous mindset as an advanced open water diver, they begin to realize the value of high performance dive gear. Advanced open water divers typically dive in more stressful conditions, brought on by current, depth, and reduced visibility and quickly learn that the performance of their gear will affect their own performance as well as their comfort and enjoyment of the dive,” states dive instructor and Dive Rite Sales Manager, Mike Engle.

Available in Yoke or DIN, the Dive Rite XT regulator has an advanced, patented design that has earned it top marks from Mike Ward of Dive Lab. With work of breathing at less than 1.0 J/l, the XT performs right alongside premier regulators on the market today.

Top dive guru and company CEO, Lamar Hires says, “The XT Regulator series is not a workhorse-quality regulator like our former 3000 series. We stepped up our performance metrics when designing the XT, yet made some strategic design decisions that allowed us to keep manufacturing costs in check. The end result is a high performance regulator that is within the means of every diver. We are extremely proud of what we’ve done here.”
