NX Series Zen Wing
The NX Series Zen single tank wing featrures numerous advantages for enhancing your buoyancy control, reducing any entanglement hazard, and significantly reducing drag. Reduced drag results in better streamlining and, usually, improves air consumption to enable longer, safer, dives. Although compact, the buoyancy of the NX Series Zen wing is approximately 17kg (or 37lbs) and suitable for tanks up to 15L.
How is this possible? Traditional wings have a large central 'dead zone'. No bladder, just fabric. By using this space more effectively, XDeep reduced the dead zone considerably, reducing the overall wing size while maintaining excellent buoyancy.
The outer shell of the Zen BC wing is made of highly durable Cordura® 1100 dTEX, produced in Germany. The inner bladder is made from Nylon 440 dTEX. This double-layered construction improves safety if the wing is likely to encounter abrasive or sharp surfaces - no one need convincing about the benefits of a very durable outer shell for wreck diving.
The NX Zen BC wing also features the revolutionary NX Series central inflator hose connector that joins at the top of the wing (also featured on the NX Project and Ghost). This design enables a narrower top section, which improves both trim and the upright surface position while enabling even inflation and much better (more complete) air release than traditional designs. Welded, instead of being screwed on, the junction also reduces failure points.
The NX Zen wing also features an anti-bacterial coating. Moisture inside a wing can allow bacteria to grow, and sinus trouble can stop you from diving for many weeks. To reduce that risk, the inner bladder is coated with an antibiotic agent to prevent the growth of bacteria.
As part of a system
The NX Zen wing is available separately, primarily for divers using the NX Project BC system to be able them to swap from a double to a single tank configuration and still benefit from the features of an NX series wing. However, with standard 11" (28 cm) bolt holes, it can be fitted to almost any back plate.
