Built for serious back-flotation divers looking for a rugged yet bulk-free BC.
Nothing offers a better sense of freedom in the water than a back-flotation BC. By putting the air cell behind you, the bulkiness in the chest area disappears and hydrodrag is reduced. The result: a completely unencumbered underwater experience that is a joy to behold.
The KNIGHTHAWK, SCUBAPRO's ultimate back- flotation BC, delivers this freedom of movement in a rugged, streamlined design that's well-suited to both recreational and technical diving. Strategically placed padding, an adjustable cummerbund and quick-release rotating shoulder buckles (for optimum strap routing) guarantee a comfortable and snug fit. With its contoured hard pack and single-band Super Cinch tank buckle, the KNIGHTHAWK also delivers a stable ride at depth.
The integrated weight system is first-rate in both compactness and security. Once clipped in with the oversized buckles, your ballast weights won't be going anywhere unless you want them too, and then it's an easy squeeze-and-pull for the weights to quickly ditch. In spite of its streamlined design the KNIGHTHAWK is able to offer two cargo pockets -- one very roomy zippered roll-out pocket and one compact zippered pocket. There are also four large pre-bent stainless steel D-rings for clipping on additional gear.
The KNIGHTHAWK is built robust, it's comfortable and it integrates numerous performance features for easy handling. It's also available in a choice of colors: Black or Brown Camo. Pick your favorite and get ready to soar.
