A Closure Look
The Aqua Lung Legend LUX Supreme is a high quality and high end regulator that is designed for diving in different temperature waters from tropical to extremely cold. Aqua Lung has put a lot of thought into every single part of this regulator starting with their use of the black and pink gold finish which is not only attractive, but is actually tougher than the traditional chrome plating, making this regulator more durable.
The first stage of the regulator has a balanced design with an environmentally sealed balance chamber making this regulator ideal for cold water use. Being able to use this regulator for both warm and cold water diving increases the versatility of this regulator, making it great for any depth of water and any cylinder pressure
The second stage portion of this regulator, has been greatly improved as well. It has a built in heat exchanger next to the second stage that warms the air flow. It also has a smaller more comfortable mouth piece with a removable lip shield designed to keep lips warm when diving. The 2nd stage also has a dual purpose control that not only controls the air flow into the regulator but, also regulates inhalation effort.
The hose that connects the First and Second stages of this regulator is braided which not only helps to prevent the hose from suffering damage due to UV rays, but also allows for a higher pressure without bursting.
Overall this regulator is smaller and lighter than the old Legend.
The Aqua Lung Legend LUX Supreme regulator is designed for those divers who enjoy diving in various temperatures of water and want a regulator that is both reliable and versatile. Aqua Lung has put a lot of thought and effort into creating this next generation of Legend, and it shows. This regulator is not only more durable than the older model with it’s use of black and pink gold coatings being tougher than chrome plating and it’s braided hose. It is also more functional with the addition of the built in heat exchanger to warm the air, and the lip shield to help keep your lips warm when diving in cooler temperature water. There really doesn’t seem to be anything this company hasn’t thought of, making this regulator one of the better more dependable regulators on today’s market.
