Buoyancy Compensator - Wing Systems

 

 

In our opinion, the most comfortable, flexible and streamlined buoyancy compensator device (BCD) is a wing based system. Diving with a wing helps you to have a more efficient and stable horizontal position in the water. It brings you much more comfort and control, resulting in less effort and more diving fun.

While originating from the technical diving community, a wing system is the preferred choice for every type of diving, including recreational diving.

We are happy to be able to offer you a wide variety of high quality wing systems, both single tank wings as well as double tank wings.  To guarantee you the best-in-class products we offer systems from both Halcyon and Tecline.

For many years, Halcyon has been the pioneer and trendsetter for providing streamlined and minimalistic wings, eliminating the many useless “features” that clutter traditional buoyancy compensators. This approach, that reflects their diving philosophy, is applied to every single piece of the wing system and makes it a remarkable robust and flexible design that brings you unprecedented comfort and fun for your diving.

The Polish based Tecline has embraced this philosophy and designed their own range of wing systems, with special care taken to fulfill the needs for the conditions in our colder northern waters with several wings designed specifically for European cylinders for both technical and recreational divers

A wing system basically consists of a horseshoe or donut type bladder, a stainless steel or aluminum backplate and a continuous adjustable webbing, to make it fit just right for you.

The solutions we provide are modular in nature, allowing you to adjust lift capacity or change from singles to doubles in a matter of minutes.

By offering both Halcyon and Tecline wing systems, we are able to bring you a wide variety of possible configurations and accessories.

We have different sized and weighted backplates, made from Stainless Steel or Aluminum.  While weight distribution, compared to jacket style BCD, is already greatly improved by using a stainless steel backplate, there are multiple additional weighting options that can help you with optimal placement to enhance your trim and comfort during the dive.  We have v-weights, weighted single tank adapters, trim weights, integrated weight pockets, etc ...

Finally, there are a couple of solutions that can bring you additional storage capability.  First of all, there is the storage pack, which comes by default for all our Halcyon wing systems. This can be used to stow a surface marker buoy or lift bag.
