XDeep NX Zen Wing System – A step change in BCD application. The NX Zen is result of Xdeep’s passion to break from traditional wing designs into what performs at a previously unheard of level.XDeep brought its technical diving experience and expertise in deconstructing those traditional designs, leading to a step change in BCD design and application.
Advances in materials technology, in diving design and XDeep’s ability to apply modern engineering concepts created a dive system which delivers on priorities: a stable, comfortable and ergonomic BCD that is truly Zen.
XDeep NX Zen wing system is XDeep’s departure from the traditional back mounted wing design towards an innovative system focusing on comfort, safety and maximum performance.
Applying advanced materials technology and engineering expertise, the NX Zen focuses on making a diver feel as one with the aquatic world.
Highlights of this system are not limited to XDeep’s NX technology.
The Zen is based on the less is more concept from scratch, limiting wing width, a more stable connection to the tank, a BC designed to float the diver comfortably on the surface without compromise from ideal underwater trim.
The optional NX Zen Deluxe version is for those who prefer a harness equipped with quick release buckles to make it even more easier to get in and out of the wing. The Zen Deluxe also includes nautrally buoyant 3D mesh shoulder ‘comfy’ pads for additional comfort in and out of the water.
Less is more
The Zen wing is deliberately narrow so that it does not protrude from the side of your tank. This brings advantages in enhancing your buoyancy control, in reducing any entanglement hazards and in significantly reducing drag. As we reduce drag we usually improve our gas consumption, enabling longer and safer dives.
Zen wing provides 19kg of lift, while its size is comparable to classic wings with 17kg of lift.
Smaller upper wing section
The compact engineering of the NX series inflator has allowed a reduction in the required size of the upper part of the wing.
This results in a position at the surface that lifts you high out of the water and ensures lift is in the right place when submerged.
Precise control of gas movement
Traditional inflation systems are mounted on the side, so that as gas is injected it can disturb trim if you are in a good flat position.
The compact nature of the NX series adapter allows it to be placed dead centre, eliminating unwanted gas movement. Air is added and is immediately distributed equally down both sides of the wing, leaving you in perfect trim.
The classic backplates’ design history dates back to what could be cut out of an old road sign. For the first time since then we have looked properly at the ergonomics and anatomy of a diver’s back. Our redesign has created a plate that is better in every respect.
Enlarging the upper part of the backplate has achieved better weight distribution during the dive and removes load from the lumbar region. The lower plate design spreads the load comfortably, safely allowing for the optimal attachment of weight pockets and accessories.
The new NX Series backplate is comfortable, stable and protective of your back.
3D Mesh Pad
Zen, as with any other set from the NX Series is equipped with XDeep’s perfect 3D Mesh lining.
This soft but non compressive pad adds to your comfort, whether in board shorts or drysuit. It helps prevent any small movement of the back plate against your back, adding to stability and security.
The 3D Mesh material does not need any additional lead due to the smart materials technology that allow easy water penetration and drainage.
V-shaped Crotch Strap
The NX Series harness is equipped with totally new V shaped crotch strap. The V shape is more comfortable, eliminating the single strap design running directly between the legs. Whether walking with your gear to jump in or scootering around a reef, you will feel the very direct benefit.
The V-shaped crotch strap distributes load over a larger area, allowing you to sit comfortably into the crotch strap whilst at the surface.
The V is formed by two attachment points at the bottom of the back plate. This ensures there is an even tension preventing sideways slippage of the system and spreading the load for stability.
The NX Series V-strap is equipped with two Cargo D-Rings instead of the usual one. The design results in the D-rings being set off to each side as opposed to a traditional centre ring, providing easier access to clipped off gear.
