Type of vertical compensator

Subea-Tribord diving buoyancy compensators are "wraparound": the volume of the air is distributed over the entire surface of the body that is covered, providing a significant level of buoyancy and improved support in the vertical position.

A combined buoyancy compensator with patented V-shaped straps.

The exclusive shape of the straps leave the arms free whilst providing even better support.
The shape of the straps also prevents compression of the chest, making this buoyancy compensator suitable for both men and women.
The buckles on the straps allow for easy and accurate adjustment thanks to their shape and size.

Ergonomic accessories

The drain tabs have been moved forwards: on the chest for the upper drain, and on the belly under the right-hand pocket for the lower drain. They are also shaped for an easy grip. Consequently, control of the diver’s buoyancy is improved.
The openings of the two side pockets have been lowered for easier access.
The Subea SCD 500 buoyancy compensator has two releasable weight pockets that can contain up to 3 kg per pocket.

Reinforced padding!

For added comfort, the design teams have developed reinforced back padding on the back of the SUBEA SCD 500, providing cushioning behind the cylinder.
The padding has also been reinforced on the shoulders for a more comfortable wear.

Product composition

The Subea-Tribord buoyancy compensators are made of high-quality materials that have been tested in sea water and in pools.
Material: Ripstop 600d PES, which limits tearing.
Inflatable chamber fabric: PA210 with PU laminate.

Care advice

1/ Rinse your buoyancy compensator thoroughly with clean water. Pay particular attention to the drains and the inflater.
2/ Empty any water that may be contained in the buoyancy compensator by pulling the lower drain tab. Do not store water in the inflatable bladder.
3/ Dry your buoyancy compensator on a wide hanger, out of the sun.

Inspect your buoyancy compensator once a year and look for any signs of wear. Inflate the inflatable chamber by mouth, then wait 12 hours to see if it deflates.

Storage advice

It is important to store all diving equipment well clear of sources that produce ozone (electric motors, cookers, etc.) and to protect it against UV rays. If this is not the case, the seals can deteriorate more quickly, affecting your safety or the working order of the regulator. Keep your equipment in a dry place away from heat and direct sunlight.

Servicing buoyancy compensators

Your buoyancy compensator must be inspected and serviced by a certified Subea centre at least every two years, and more often if you are a frequent diver.
