The BC5500 CCR XT adjustable lift wing is designed for the O2ptima eCCR or any rebreather diver looking for maximum durability, versatile options, and the ability to streamline their hoses and wing for in-water efficiency.
Using a SuperFabric® brand technology XT material to create an armor-clad outer shell that is impervious to damaging pinches and cuts, a 1680 ballistic nylon diver's side panel, and a heavy-duty, 210 denier nylon laminated inner bladder, the BC5500 CCR XT will hold up under all the rigors of diving.
Offering 40 lbs. (18.1 kg) of lift with a dual bladder option (BC5500-DUAL), the BC5500 CCR XT is versatile enough for any rebreather diving configuration and is designed for use with our TransPac, TransPlate, or metal backplates.
With an offset inflator hose, lying just to the outside of the chest-mounted counterlungs, and an open mid section, hose positioning couldn’t be more streamlined. The open mid-section allows rebreather hoses to pass through the middle of the wing, freeing up space behind the diver's head and keeping airflow from being compressed at the top of the wing. No longer will hoses press down on the wing and restrict airflow.
A 16-inch elbow inflator hose and a 27-inch low-pressure inflation hose come standard but if needed, other hose lengths are available upon request.
To allow a diver to set their trim more effectively, the BC5500 CCR XT has two sets of marine-grade 316 stainless steel grommet mounting holes, which are used to attach the wing to a harness in two different positions. So, no matter what harness system or what rebreather is used, the wing can be positioned to maximize the diver’s trim in the water.
A Gusset Control System (GCS) cord is also provided (optional for use) that can be used to further streamline the wing such as when carrying small bailout bottles. The GCS is not like a bungee wing because it does not restrict airflow; instead the GCS promotes added streamlining and buoyancy control, yet allows the wing to inflate to its full capacity.
The BC5500 CCR XT is backed by our WORRY-FREE LIFETIME GUARANTEE and is made exclusively in the U.S.A.
