XDEEP Ghost Standard Harness System Backplate
Comfortable, Complete and only 2.3Kg
A complete, exceptionally comfortable BC system weighing in at only 2.3Kg. Perfect for the travelling scuba diver. A revolutionary design and cutting edge materials, coupled with no compromises on quality has created a tough and durable BCD unrivalled in recreational diving.
Streamlined for minimum drag
The ability to streamline the diver's body and equipment in the water has significant advantages. Low drag reduces the effort needed to move through the water. The less effort, the better our gas consumption, and the more time we get on our underwater adventure. The GHOST was designed to be completely streamlined, staying tight to the diver's body and cylinder. The effort is reduced, enjoyment of the dive is heightened.
Inspired by technical divers
Technical divers will almost exclusively use wing style BC systems. A wing will hold you horizontal in the water, achieving that awesome and flat trim position that enhances safety, improves gas consumption, and team awareness. Oh, and looks cool! Accept no less on your recreational scuba dives. We have obsessed over the GHOST۪s geometry for 2 years to make diving in perfect trim easy and effortless. Your first dive in the GHOST will inspire you.
Safe and Comfortable at the Surface
Wing systems for recreational diving have a reputation for pushing you face down at the surface, not the GHOST. The upper part of the wing is intentionally smaller than other single cylinder wings to prevent you from being pushed forwards. The GHOST maximizes it۪s small size but a significant lift of over 17 litres of buoyancy. The design ensures that just about all the BCD lift is kept underwater when you are upright at the surface. Whatever the conditions you will be supported safely and comfortably above the water.
The revolutionary design applied through to the smallest detail
At XDEEP we are passionate about doing things better, improving, and refining our products. We want BCD۪s to be safer, to be robust and reliable, and to be more comfortable for divers. Our engineers and designers leave no stone unturned in the pursuit of this goal. From the overall design concept to the little details, everything is examined and improved. Once we have come up with the design we obsess about identifying and using the best materials. The NX Series is the culmination of our experience, expertise, and passion so far. The NX collection of products has already changed dive industry thinking and has improved diver experiences from exploration cave diving to tropical reefs.
Complete Underwater Freedom of Movement
Diving puts a smile on our face for many reasons, but the feeling of freedom and weightlessness are high on the list. The last thing you want is to be hitting your head on the first stage of the regulator because of the tank valve position. If you move the tank down your back, then trim and comfort are compromised and your smile is gone. The GHOST is the only BCD wing system that allows you to adjust the relationship between the cylinder, the wing, and the tank adaptor to ensure perfect freedom. The scope of the movement possible means that anyone, from giant to petite can dive in comfort. Enjoy the freedom to look around and enjoy the sights of our underwater world in perfect trim.
Single tank adaptor Simplicity improved
A classic and simple design with characteristic XDEEP touches to elevate the single tank adaptor to a new level. Cylinder mounting straps can be moved quickly and easily as a result of the NX Series design. Setting up for a dive and ensuring a customized and personalized system has never been more straightforward.
Easy On, Easy Off
Overcoming the donning and doffing challenges that standard backplate and harness systems present, whilst maintaining the great fit these systems provide was a satisfying challenge to overcome. We simply increased the length between the shoulder straps anchoring points by 20% making the harness easier to put on. Buckling the harness waistbelt and pulling tight also pulls the shoulder straps down snug with the body. Close the waist buckle and you are in a perfectly fitting system.
Neutrally buoyant 3D Mesh padding
The NX Series harness uses our innovative 3D mesh for padding. This ensures comfort and safety as the padding helps the system mould to your body and prevents the BCD sliding around on your back during the dive. You can be comfortable in anything from a drysuit to board shorts and a T-shirt. Critically there is no compression of the 3D mesh and therefore no change in its buoyancy at depth. You can weight yourself perfectly with confidence.
Perfect Weight Distribution
Significant advantages in trim and balance can be gained by moving weight pockets up the body, off of the hips and keeping them closer to the cylinder. The NX Series harness achieves this goal with a carefully calculated placement of the pockets. No longer will you feel the lead dragging you down into a sea horse position. For women, the weight distribution is a major step forward. It will take the weight off the hips and you will feel better supported by the system.
50% lighter, 100% tough
We set out to challenge ourselves with the GHOST. We wanted the lightest wing system in the world, we wanted it to be as tough as any double shell wing.
Traditional solutions using plastic backplates do not have the robustness needed. New thinking and new materials technology provided the answers. The GHOST is incredibly light and unbelievably tough.
The backplate and adaptor are made from aerospace-grade aluminium and magnesium alloy. Derived from aviation use, this alloy provides rigidity and structure, is tough and hard-wearing, and is very, very light.
Reliable 6mm D-Rings
You can۪t compromise on safety and function, so we didn۪t. Having saved weight in other areas we could fit full specification 6mm D-rings and bin the plastic alternatives.
Durable 1100 DTex Cordura
The toughness of a double shell wing, in a single shell design. By using dTEX Cordura, coated with as much as a 0.215 mm-thick TPU layer, material technology provided the answer. A durable wing, as resistant to rupture as a double shell design.
Modular Weight Lead where you want it
Tailor your weight distribution for the diving you are doing. From a couple of kilos needed in the warm sun to the extra lead needed in cold water diving, you can select the pockets that best suit your needs.
Weight management made easy
The whole pocket is simply and quickly removed when you want to pass your weights up to the boat. Two-part pockets are user friendly, even in thick gloves. Weights fit into separate slots and are very secure in the pocket. They won۪t fall out accidentally.
Secure until you want to drop them
Accidental loss of weights and a resultant rapid ascent is a serious issue. XDEEP weight pockets utilise robust ITW Nexus buckles that slide into place with a reassuring click, a sound which tells you your weight is securely fastened for the dive. If you need to drop your weights the size and construction of the buckle make it quick and easy.
Protection for you and the environment
Lead is useful for divers as for a small size it has a large mass. Lead has some disadvantages. In the air, lead oxide forms on the surface of the block. Lead oxide is a carcinogenic compound that can accumulate in our bodies. It will also pollute the air around you, especially in enclosed spaces like cars and boat cabins. It۪s advisable to keep weights covered. XDEEP pockets provide effective protection once the weight is installed.
Attention to detail
The weight pocket has been designed with a rigid edge to keep it open, facilitating adding in the weight at the surface or underwater. Our obsessive nature and focus on the small details add up to the improved performance of our XDEEP systems.
Technology for Travel and Adventure
The GHOST is a truly innovative answer for travelling adventurers. Produced in Europe, with the finest materials sourced from Germany and the USA, its advanced design is complemented by our attention to detail. For single tank recreational diving, it's truly the next generation of BCD۪s.
