Imagine a scuba set that's half the weight of your current one, yet gives you more bottom time. Imagine that scuba could provide the freedom and streamlined experience of freediving. Now, imagine all this with immediately perfect neutral buoyancy.
Sounds like magic? We call it Avelo.
Divers carry an average 70 lbs (32 kg) of scuba gear or more. It's beyond uncomfortable and can become dangerous on unstable boats and wavy shores. It is needlessly debilitating.
To achieve neutral buoyancy with today’s gear, a BCD is used to create a bubble underwater that changes its volume as you either add or subtract air. However, since this bubble is ultra-sensitive to depth changes, it changes buoyancy quickly when you ascend and descend. This creates an unstable form of neutral buoyancy, which compromises safety and causes problems such as uncontrolled ascents.
Our lightweight scuba system stays neutrally buoyant regardless of how much you ascend or descend. We have no depth-sensitive bubble on our back. Instead, we "borrow" water weight from the ocean. This concept provides a very stable form of neutral buoyancy, which leads to longer dives for any diver. New divers can hover in the water like pros and professional divers can accomplish their tasks much more efficiently. Technical divers will enjoy considerable weight reduction and additional streamlining. Our system helps divers focus on what we love about diving.
Just like you, we love the feeling of "flying" through the underwater environment and want to make the whole experience, both above the water and below, better.
Our technology can help you provide these advantages for your divers:
Effortless buoyancy control
Dramatically improved air consumption
Significant reduction in equipment weight and bulkiness
Increased air capacity (up to 30% more gas capacity)
