Atomic Aquatics Unveils the Z2 Regulator
Easily the best mid-price regulator ever made, the Z2 continues
Atomic Aquatics "Summer of Excellence"
Beach, Calif. – June 28, 2005 – Atomic
Aquatics, the world's leader in innovative and functional
scuba diving product design and development has announced
that its latest regulator, the Z2, is now available.
This introduction follows the overwhelming success of
the Atomic T2 regulator that launched in June.
The Z2 is the next generation of the Z1 regulator. The
Z1 has become the choice of many dive stores selling
high performance regulators at a mid-range price. The
Z1 has also proven itself for durable, trouble-free rental
service. The Z2 features a completely new second stage
housing that includes a re-designed, hi-flow case. The
attractive two-tone design is available in Gray, Blue
or Yellow. But, while it's certainly a visually-appealing
product, the Z2's true strength comes from its performance
and interior design.
Like all Atomic regulators, every detail, movement and
function has been carefully crafted and designed. Divers
will appreciate how easy the Z2 breathes thanks to Atomic
innovations like the patented Automatic Flow Control
(AFC), seat-saving orifice and "Jet Seat" first
stage piston design. The Z2 can be purchased with several
important options including a five-port, first-stage
swivel in place of the standard seven-port fixed assembly.
Naturally, the Z2 carries Atomics two-year, 300-dive
Atomic officials are very enthusiastic about the Z2,
and with good reason. Following the runaway success of
the T2 regulator earlier this year, it's apparent today's
savvy dive consumer continues to seek out high-quality,
high-caliber products. In this area, Atomic Aquatics
has no equal.
"Our designs and innovations are far ahead of the
competition. The so-called 'new' features that some companies
releasing this season are features that have been standard
on Atomic products for years," said Dean Garraffa
of Atomic Aquatics. "For example, you're starting
to see 'swivels' on some new regulator models. We introduced
the Atomic comfort swivel “patent pending” two
years ago. In fact, our comfort swivel has become such
a popular innovation that we've recently created a universal
version that will work with virtually any regulator.
It's obvious that other companies are working hard just
to catch up."
The Z2, which is shipping now, has a suggested retail
price of $429 for the standard version and $549 for the
swivel first stage assembly.
Garraffa said the Z2 regulator is designed for long-term
durability and performance - exactly what dive retailers
seek in their rental lines. Atomic dealers can still
take advantage of the rental buying program that allows
them to purchase quantity regulators for rental use at
a significant savings.
