If it works why change? Because good is not good enough for XDEEP. We wanted to deconstruct the traditional wing and backplate, knowing it works, but realizing we can make it a lot better. Every element in the NX PROJECT has been developed to perfection, with no compromises in the pursuit of excellence.
An investment of three years of design time, thousands of hours of testing in the water, constant refinement of the concepts and the application of advanced materials technology brought our ideas to life.
Stability, Ergonomics and Safety dominated our priorities and have been delivered in the PROJECT.
What inspires you? The thrill as a wreck emerges into view as you descend along the shot line? The discoveries that lie in wait in the far corners of the hull? Perhaps it is reaching into the depths of the Earth, where darkness is split by your light for the first time.
Whatever inspires you, it has motivated us to develop the NX PROJECT to deliver that experience expertly and safely - however deep, however far and however long you go.
At XDEEP we are passionate about doing things better, improving and refining our products. We want BCD’s to be safer, to be robust and reliable and to be more comfortable for divers. Our engineers and designers leave no stone unturned in the pursuit of this goal. From the overall design concept to the little details, everything is examined and improved. Once we have come up with the design we obssess about identifying and using the best materials.
The NX Series is the culmination of our experience, expertise and passion so far. The NX collection of products has already changed dive industry thinking and has improved diver experiences from exploration cave diving to tropical reefs.
The NX PROJECT has sufficient lift to support multiple stage diving with ease, managing to achieve this in a tightly streamlined profile.
This narrower profile reduces drag, easing your resistance and effort through the water, improving gas consumption and reducing the chance of entanglement.
In an emergency situation every second counts so easy access to your valves is critical. As the NX inflator design is so compact, the upper wing size can be reduced and there is no impediment to quick and easy shutdowns.
In addition, the extra space allows for straight and tidy hose routing. Even when fully inflated the NX wing will not pressure or bend your hoses.
When you are at the surface, the majority of the wing is still underwater, providing lift. Even with several stage bottles you feel 100% safe and supported in a higher out of the water position than traditional designs. Comfort during pre-dive S-drills or waiting for your boat in a choppy sea is greatly enhanced.
The simple direct connection to the wing greatly improves air flow in and out of the wing. As a result, buoyancy control is more precise. In addition, the inflator is very responsive, deflating faster than traditional designs.
The shape of the classic backplate was originally driven by the road sign it was cut out from, time perhaps for a change. Taking a proper look at the anatomy and structure of the human back, we have reinvented the concept.
Enlarging the upper part of the backplate achieves better weight distribution during the dive and removes load form the lumbar region. The lower plate design spreads the load equally well and allows for the optimal attachment of weight pockets and accessories.
The new NX Series back plate is more comfortable, more stable and more protective of your back than any other classic plate.
The security of a classic single piece harness is unrivalled, but this has meant sacrificing comfort and adjustability. The NX series harness not only keeps all the positives but also adds a level of comfort and adjustment that the most ardent DIR diver will value.
The backplate harness interface is a completely new design, made possible by the changes to the backplate. When unfastened, the shoulder straps are 20% longer than in a standard one piece making kitting up or kit removal much easier. Tightening the waist buckle, tensions the shoulder straps to provide perfect lift.
