What has an influence on weighting?
1/ Your physiology (weight) and your body mass index (weight/size).
2/ Water: buoyancy is greater in seawater (you need more weights) than in fresh water.
3/ Your diving suit: the thickness of the neoprene also influences buoyancy.
4/ The weight of the tank (for SCUBA diving) and the volume of the air content: the more air you consume, the lighter your cylinder becomes and your buoyancy tends to become positive (you float!).
Weight stops / belt slides
Weight stops (or belt slides) let you connect your weights together: this prevents them from moving when you move in the water.
Tips for storage and maintenance
Store in a dry place away from direct sunlight.
Restrictions on use
For safety's and comfort's sake, never wear too many weights
TESTS AND WARRANTY
Designed and tested by our teams and our technical partner in Hendaye (France).
Our technical partner: Planet Ocean (the PADI 5-star diving centre) based at the Water Sports Centre by Decathlon in Hendaye - France. The centre uses SUBEA equipment throughout the year.
The team of instructors are rigorously involved in the development of our SUBEA diving products: from the design phase with the SUBEA team (product manager, designers and engineers), to the endurance tests with the help of the centre’s divers (from beginners to trainee instructors, all year round).
