Streamlined to your anatomy

One of sidemount divings’ many advantages is the streamlined shape you have in the water. Anything that protrudes or dangles is a potential entanglement hazard, and a serious safety issue.

The STEALTH 2.0 design achieves a streamlined system that stays in tune with your anatomy. Whatever position you are in and regardless of how much gas you have in the wing, the distance of the centre of the wing away from the body is minimal.

Always in control, anywhere and everywhere

Diving in caves and wrecks can put your body in some strange and contorted positions, especially in narrow passageways and restrictions. Safety and performance demand you can reach the dump valve with either hand, and dump gas without having to change position.

The STEALTH 2.0 dump valve is located centrally to ensure it can be reached anywhere with either hand. In addition it is placed to offer maximum protection from accidental operation or from being caught or damaged in the environment.

STEALTH 2.0 Classic BCD

Packing 16Kg of lift into a streamlined and tough double-shell wing required true innovation. Selecting materials that would stand up to the rigours of cave diving meant no compromises. Combining these demands into a sidemount system that was streamlined, infinitely adjustable and made our competitors systems irrelevant was a challenge XDEEP relished.

In the cave environment, especially in tight restrictions, the XDEEP is peerless.

Perfectly position the wing

Because the wing has its own independent five-point mounting system, you can place the wing exactly where it needs to be.

During the dive as you mount and demount cylinders, drop stages or clip off scooters the wing can be adjusted to maintain trim. For a real squeeze of a restriction, you can even remove it to completely minimise your profile.

Cave divers always have a backup

Backup regulators, dive torches, computers, and even a backup plan – cave divers know how to take care of their safety. STEALTH 2.0 Classic RB version adds one more crucial element: a backup source of buoyancy.

In STEALTH 2.0 Classic RB we added fully independent bladder and a full-featured inflator to the regular BCD, so you can safely enjoy the exploration of the underwater cave world of Mexico in your wetsuit.

STEALTH 2.0 HARNESS
A Superb Foundation

The expression ‘thinking outside the box’ is often over used, but to revolutionise the sidemount system harness, that’s exactly what we had to do. Analysing the many systems already on the market was a start. We soon realised that something new and groundbreaking, something that would perform brilliantly in the Yucutan Caves as well as open water, was needed.

The STEALTH 2.0 includes some revolutionary features. Using harness webbing of differing thickness and stiffness meant a better more comfortable fit. Building true anatomical structures into the harness enhanced the diving experience. Movable D rings on the waist strap to allow for changes in tank buoyancy and control of tank position were first seen on the STEALTH 2.0 and have been widely copied since.

Quick to fit and adjust

Single piece harnesses can take up to half a day to fit properly and often need refining post dive. Because the STEALTH 2.0 has independent adjustment of the shoulder and waist straps it is quicker and easier to obtain a custom fit. Adjusting the shoulders does not affect the waist D ring positions, the crotch strap is a simple triglide adjustment.

Instructors and students can save time on their sidemount courses and actually go diving instead of constantly adjusting equipment.

Harness webbing fit for purpose

There are three different webbing types of the STEALTH 2.0 applied to best fufill the function required.

On the waist there is a stiff and rigid webbing that enhances the ease of use and operation of the D rings for cylinder mounting. Shoulder straps are softer to improve comfort, fit and flexibility. The crotch strap is very flexible, even soft, to reduce chaffing and wear on your exposure suit.

A simple idea, elegant in application.

The world's best weight system

Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery which probably explains why the STEALTH 2.0 weight system is so often copied. Your weights can be configured exactly where you want them to ensure perfect balance and trim, regardless of whether you need one block or ten.

Incredibly flexible, capacity to cope with 1Kg to over 20Kg and designed to keep weights secure and immovable, it truly is a world class system.

Take only the weight you need

Cold water diving in a drysuit with a thick undersuit requires a large amount of weight that many sidemount systems struggle to accomodate. This limits where you can place the weight and can upset balance and trim.

The design of the STEALTH 2.0 can manage the perfect placement of a 1Kg block up to over 20Kg of lead with ease. If you are in arctic water or in board shorts and a T-shirt, the weight system is flexible enough to meet your needs exactly.

Perfect Trim and Balance

The flexibility designed into the STEALTH 2.0 weight system ensures you control weight placement relative to your centre of gravity. The central weight pocket has a considerable range of movement, so it can be ideally positioned for balance. The same principle that is used in twinset diving when moving a V weight into the optimum position.

Perfect trim and balance in any configuration.

STEALTH 2.0 CLASSIC has been used in

Xdeep exploration
support program

Mahafaly Karst

In 2013 and 2014 the first exploration of the caves in the Mahafaly Karst limestone plateau, situated in the south west of Madagascar took place.

Using the XDEEP STEALTH 2.0 classic and XDEEP STEALTH 2.0 TEC sidemount systems, expedition team discovered incredible fossils and amazing cave formations.

Hongu East
Expedition

Diving in the Himalayas is truly diving at the top of the world, and presents serious environmental and logistical challenges.

As part of the ‘Lakes at the Crown of the World’ project XDEEP’s STEALTH 2.0 Classic provided an answer to both the logistical issues and was tough enough to stand up to the demands of extreme cold and altitude faced by the team.

Ahmed Gabr’s World Record breaking dive to 332.35m

On the 18th of September 2014, Ahmed Gabr set the world record for open-circuit diving by plunging to a depth of 332.35 meters.

During the decompression time of this record-breaking dive, Ahmed used the XDEEP STEALTH 2.0 harness. The majority of his support team used the XDEEP HYDROS 50 and STEALTH 2.0 systems.

Nevado Tres Cruces MedExpedition 2015

Exploring a volcano, even an extinct one is no mean feat. Add in diving at an altitude of 5907 metres above sea level, a feat achieved by fewer people than have landed on the moon, and the scope of this expedition becomes clear.

XDEEP’s STEALTH 2.0 Classic provided the required balance of lightness and the required robustness and reliability to cope with the cold waters of the Tres Cruces Norte lake.

Expedition Bjuralven 2016

On the mountains of Jämtland, a group of cave divers is exploring what now is the longest underwater cave system in Sweden. Work has been going on for seven eventful years in a constant struggle against the elements. Diving is only possible during winter due to local environmental conditions. Water temperatures around 0 degrees Celsius and arctic climate make the expedition a real challenge.

During the 2016-expedition, mapped length of the Bjurälven cave reached 2135 meters. Diving is now conducted in sump 5 and exploration is becoming more and more challenging.

Madagascar Karst Expedition 2017

After the amazingly rewarding initial Madagascar expeditions in 2014, Ryan Dart, Phillip Lehman, Hans Kaspersetz and Patrick Widmann founded the Madagascar Cave Diving Association to further organize and pursue flooded cave explorations on the island.

During this new fall 2017 expedition, the team discovered a new cave Anjanamba that has now become Madagascar’s longest flooded cave and currently has over 17800 feet of explored passages, with leads everywhere and no end in sight.

Project Antillothrix 2016

Project Antillothrix is a multi-organizational partnership formed to conduct biodiversity surveys and excavations of paleontological cave sites in the Dominican Republic. Together, researchers and divers have documented and collected a trove of vertebrate fossils for study and preservation since the inception of this collaboration in 2011.

Among these finds are a nearly complete skeleton and several isolated elements of the extinct monkey Antillothrix bernensis, the best-preserved primate fossils in the Caribbean.
