H.U.B. MARES
Diving freedom has been revolutionized.
The new millennium ushers in the age of H.U.B. : the
first and only integrated diving system.
But H.U.B. is much more. First of all, it is a system:
i.e., a control unit which coordinates the diver's
various instruments. Secondly, it is integrated: i.e.,
different instruments that where formerly scattered
and separated are now incorporated into a single unit.
H.U.B. provides maximum freedom of movement, by
eliminating trailing hoses and improving general
comfort. The instruments are all readily at hand, yet
concealable. In addition, H.U.B. is equipped with AirTrim, the new unit comprised of two simple button
controls for inflation and deflation.
H.U.B. opens up a new era of diving. Just go under
water.

REGULATOR MARES
The world benchmark for underwater breathing.
Official CE-EN250 and US. NAVY certifications as well
as accreditation by the ISO 9002 quality system,
further confirm the Mares commitment to excellence.
All metal technology – Proton Ice - Abyss
'All metal’ construction for the second stage as well as
the first. The body is made of a special high-strength
chrome and nickel-plated brass that is resistant to
corrosion. Metal second stages offer superior
performance during cold water dives, by virtue of their
high thermal conductivity. This not only makes it
possible to utilize the heat of the air exhaled by the
diver, but also, more importantly, keeps the
temperature inside the second stage very close to
ambient temperature (i.e. several degrees above
freezing point).
Ultralight Technopolymer Technology - MR12
Axis- R2 Axis
These second stages are constructed from exclusive,
high-tech polymers. Exceptionally rugged and
lightweight, they afford maximum comfort during use.
Ultralight two-component technopolymer
technology (patented) - Proton XL- V16 Proton MR12 Proton
The ruggedness and light weight of the most advanced
technopolymers, coupled with the wear resistance and
“soft-touch” of next-generation elastomers, offer
superior performance and innovative styling.

The Mares advantages
EC CERTIFICATION
The Mares regulators have been tested and certified by Registered Test Centre No. 0426 - Italcert - Viale Sarca 336, Milano I, in compliance with EC directive 89/686/EEC of 21 December 1989. The test procedures were conducted according to the
EN 250: 2000 standard, in conformance with the aforesaid directive which sets out the conditions for marketing and
essential safety requirements for Category III Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).

SCS System Spherical Core Seal System-patented.
First stage valve with spherical seal for superior durability. The valve is optimally
specular, unassailable by oil or grease and resistant to any form of corrosion: it does
not deteriorate. The valve seat, constructed from a special extra-tough technopolymer,
results in a tight seal.
DFC Dynamic Flow Control-patented
Mares' first stages feature the exclusive DFC (Dynamic Flow Control) system, which
minimizes the intermediate pressure drop during the inhalation phase, thereby
considerably improving regulator performance in terms of breathing effort and
inhalation resistance.
VAD Vortex Assisted Design-patented
Ti Planet, Ruby, Abyss and Orbiter second stages offer the unique Mares patented
V.A.D. (Vortex Assisted Design) system. This system is unique and allows smooth
breathing at all depths and its operating principle is very simple. The air coming from
the hose passes through the second stage valve and is conveyed directly to the
mouthpiece through the by-pass tube. Within the mouthpiece, the air flow undergoes a
"vortex" effect. Whenever this swirl occurs, the core of the vortex creates a lowpressure area. This low pressure helps keep the second stage diaphragm down while
inhaling, thus increasing the regulator sensitivity.
Integrated VAD-patented
A new version of the VAD system, with the bypass tube incorporated into the technopolymer body of the regulator second
stage. This innovative technical development ensures great ease of breathing in an exceptionally compact and lightweight
second stage.
Turbo flow
The new "turbo flow" system allows large volumes of water to flow through the second stage cover with a "vortex"
movement, thereby minimizing the likelihood of free-flow and further enhancing performance.
Pivoting deflector-patented
During the inhalation phase, the deflector positions itself in such a way as to maximize
the Venturi effect. During the exhalation phase, it automatically returns to the rest
position, in order not to obstruct the flow of exhaled air.
Mesh grid-patented
Coverplate design, which disperses the water flow around the 2nd stage diaphragm,
reduces the likelihood of free-flow. The calibrated holes allow a large amount of water
to flow through while at the same time reducing undesirable dynamic effects, even
when swimming against a strong current. The Orbiter 2nd stage also features the
mesh grid system on the side walls.
Metal inserts-patented
Metal foil inserts, set within the second stage body, act as heat exchangers. The principal characteristic of this patented
feature is its anti-freeze function, which, while retaining the light weight of a technopolymer, permits rapid dispersion of the
cold produced by expansion of the inhaled air.
Super flow 1/2”
Wide bore low pressure hose with very high airflow capacity, fitted as standard on topof-the line models for maximum performance even under extreme conditions.
Cold water diving
The following technical features make Mares regulators ideal for diving in punishing cold-water conditions: Balanced
diaphragm first stages The balanced diaphragm first stage design has amply proved itself ideal for cold water diving. For
particularly demanding conditions, it can be fitted with a CWD kit, which completely isolates all of the moving parts of the
first stage from contact with the water. Second stages with VAD system One of the principal causes of icing in regulators is
the expansion of air inside the body of the second stage. With the VAD system, this expansion takes place inside the bypass
tube and mouthpiece, reducing the likelihood of icing.
Ultralight two-component technopolymer technology-patented
The second stage body, molded from high strength technopolymers, is over molded with a special elastomer that confers a
unified appearance to the component as well as high resistance to abrasion.

Airtrim. New, revolutionary system for effortless control of buoyancy in the water. Two buttons,
positioned on an ergonomic inflator unit that is always at hand, control air intake and release. The
inflation button operates a mechanism that permits precise adjustment of the air intake. The
deflation button opens two valves simultaneously, one on the upper part of the BC and the other on
the lower part. This system ensures easy air release in any under water position. The quick-release
low-pressure hose runs inside the Airtrim System BC, for convenience protection.
• Ergo inflator
The compact, ergonomic, absolutely reliable inflation unit for our traditional
BC’s. Power inflation, gradual deflation and quick air dump, oral inflation,
power inflator hose coupling and corrugated hose attachment are all
incorporated into a single unit. The power inflator hose runs along the inner
side of the corrugated hose, and is held in place by a convenient sliding
retainer. The gradual inflation and deflation buttons are optimally positioned
and easy to operate even when wearing heavy gloves.

Designed to make the diver as warm as possible, the
Isotherm family of suits is constructed using the most

Our engineers took a long look into why different suits
lost heat at different rates. The conclusion was that
water exchange accounts for the greatest amount of
heat loss. This flushing effect mainly happens due to fit
and design
characteristics. The Isotherm addresses both of these
issues. Mares has incorporated a revolutionary sealing
system into the wrist and ankle seals that almost
eliminate water exchange through these openings. Due
to these patented seals, the suit no longer needs to be
skintight to reduce the flushing effect. For the diver,
Isotherm Millennium provides warmth, comfort, and
unparalleled freedom of movement.

Avanti Boot:
In the spirit of innovation and evolution, Mares has
combined footwear technology with fin design to fulfill
the performance mission for which the Mares brand is
known. A relationship has finally been established
between neoprene boots and adjustable fins similar to
that of ski boots and skis. The Avanti Boot was
designed to fit into the foot-pocket of the Avanti, X3,
Quattro and Volo fins, in an effort to replicate the
efficiency found in full foot fins. With the typical open
heel fin, the amount of power traveling from a diver's
legs to the blade of the fin, results in a loss of
efficiency. By molding these separate pieces in a way
that allows them to create an unmatched synergy when
put together, maximum power is achieved. The result:
easier kicking with greater speed and less effort (and
therefore less air consumption). Leg cramping can
occur when your foot and fin are less than snug.
Application of a true arch support, along with the
"anatomic last" (the sole of the foot), gives
performance that rivals a freediving full foot fin, even
for the smallest and most narrow of feet.

FINS MARES
To unleash their performance, just add a touch of
power. In fact, Mares fins are a compendium of
innovation.
The most important ones:
1978: Mares introduces Plana: the first fin in the
world to be made from two different materials,
thermoplastic rubber for the foot pocket and
lightweight, flexible Tecralene® for the blade.
1985: patented the innovative strap system with
adjustable swivel buckles.
1985: with the Avanti fin, patented the "Channel
Thrust Power System" for channeling the fluid
streams.
1994: patented the innovative ABS system
(Adjustable Binding System).
1999: patented the O.P.B. (Optimized Pivoting Blade)
system that delivers power and thrust that
outperforms the best fins on the market, with
extremely low effort.
www.mares.com
„
FINS
The Mares advantages
O.P.B. (Optimized Pivoting Blade)
During the finning stroke, the structure of traditional fins tends to limit the flexing
angle of the blade. As a result, and especially during the downward kick, only a small
portion of the blade pushes the water in the direction of motion, while the remaining
part pushes the water in the opposite direction (fig 1).
The O.P.B. system, patented by Mares, ensures that the blade is always at an optimal
angle during both the upward and downward strokes, thus considerably increasing
efficiency. This ensures that all the diver’s muscular effort translates into effective
thrust in the direction of motion (fig. 2).
Another limitation of traditional fins is the degredation of the thrust produced during
the finning stroke, with substantial differences between the maximum and minimum
values. The O.P.B. system, on the other hand, ensures optimal thrust throughout
every phase of the finning stroke, thereby minimizing fatigue and affording much more
fluid movement through the water (fig. 3)
The O.P.B. system also makes it possible to virtually eliminate the dead angles which
normally exist when using traditional fins (fig. 4).
Channel thrust technology
When water spills over the blade sides, it does not contribute to thrust and it
decreases efficiency (fig. 5).
If appropriate channelling occurs, all the displaced water adds thrust. The Avanti fin
line was designed to maximize fluid stream channelling. In particular, the Avanti line
fins not only channel the displaced water perfectly but, if compared to other fins of
similar size, they also displace a much greater quantity of water.
Rubberized rib edges
The edges of the side ribs, especially in long fins, are the areas undergoing the highest deformation, hence the greatest
stress. By coating the rib edges with a special thermoplastic rubber, this critical area becomes more elastic and resistant to
abrasion and cracking. In addition, this solution provides higher ribs, thus further improving water channelling, while
maintaining equal blade stiffness.
ABS or adjustable binding system
Ideal strap tension can be adjusted with one hand. Only one finger is used to release the side levers and free your foot.
1) Even when released, the strap keeps to its original adjustment.
2) 2) Simply press to close the lever. The foot is held in position.
3) Two-side adjustments for perfect heel piece centering.
4) The new ABS feature a system, in which the buckle is secured by means of a simple
and effective slider catch
Fin testing apparatus
Saying that one's fins are the best is not enough; one has to prove this statement with
objective data. MARES was the first manufacturer to use an exclusive apparatus to
perform scientific testing of fin efficiency and thrust. Testing is carried out jointly with
the Institute of Technology and Mechanics of Genoa University. Thanks to this piece of
equipment, which has been further improved, it is now possible to know values such
as the thrust, power, performance and work of the fin moment by moment, thereby
optimizing the profile at each stage of the kick.
Fin thrust and power chart
Scientific tests
Scientific tests, conducted both in open water conditions and using the exclusive Mares
fin testing machine, have proven the superiority of the VOLO and PLANA AVANTI
QUATTRO fins, which are unmatched for thrust, power, efficiency and comfort.

MASKS AND SNORKEL MARES
Pure technology and design.
All Mares mask models conform to the rigorous CE and
DIN standards. All the two-window designs, with the
exception of the Target model, can be fitted with
corrective lenses, thermally tempered for safety. With
the new X-vision, X-stream and X-comfort masks,
innovative new technical developments are being
introduced that will broaden the field of vision to
ranges previously believed impossible, and will further
improve comfort during the dive. What's more, Esa is
the only mask in the world that can accommodate
both positive and negative corrective lenses. The use
of liquid silicone for the skirts and head straps (instead
of the more common solid silicone) makes the masks
completely hypo-allergenic, as well as ensuring
superior comfort and durability. The other mask
components are made exclusively from high impact
technopolymers. The frames are all constructed from a
special UV-resistant polycarbonate, while the buckles
are made from acetal resin, a technopolymer that
provides virtually unlimited durability and reliability. All
models feature thermally tempered glass windows and
have been subjected to the most stringent tests for
compliance with European and US standards.
The only unknown is what you'll find at the bottom of
the sea.

Esa
For the very first time, divers can enjoy peripheral
vision with Mares’ revolutionary six-lens mask.
The Esa mask features a wide panoramic window with
an extended range of vision compared with traditional
masks. With the Esa, divers can get what they have
been deprived of for such a long time: they just have to
lower their eyes to be able to see their weight belt, the
upper B/C straps and to read any wrist-worn or consolemounted instruments without having to raise them. The
Esa is the ideal mask for divers with vision problems.
Optical lenses can be fitted in the bottom windows to
read the dive computer or watch, whereas the large
lenses can be corrected for short-sightedness only. The
Esa is extremely comfortable, easy to equalize, and its
strap is equipped with quick-adjusting swivel buckles.

downward and out to the sides, drastically reducing the
blind spots in the lower field of vision. The diver’s gaze
thus extends to regions which traditional masks cannot
reach. Its original and very luminous styling frames the
face without distorting its features. The rounded corners
and colored inserts of the frame give the Lirica a fresh,
sparkling, modern look. The quick-adjusting swivel
buckles are recessed to ensure adherence of the mask
strap to the sides of the head. The higher placement of
the strap attachments facilitates underwater mask
clearing (Mares patent). The wide lip seal and the
roomy nose pocket ensure maximum comfort and an

this a rugged, hard wearing diving lamp that can
withstand depths of up to 100 meters. The computerdesigned reflector provides a tight beam, ideal for
night dives or low visibility conditions. The electronic
control of the voltage supply to the bulb maintains a
consistently white light for the entire rated burn time,
as well as prolonging bulb life. The power selector
allows the diver to choose between two brightness
settings, according to need. The nickel metal hydride
battery, with no memory effect, allows the lamp to be
recharged even when it is not fully discharged. A
simple mechanical safety catch guards against
accidental switch-on. The anatomical handle and its
perfect balancing make Phos extremely easy to handle
under water.
