SF2 ECCR Sidemount
The SF2 ECCR is certainly the most popular Sidemount rebreather in the world. Its compact size, combined with a low weight and a robust structure make the SF2 Sidemount a popular and reliable companion on exploration dives around the globe. The basic components are taken from the SF2 Backmount version. The SF2 Sidemount has the same compact electronics chamber and inner bellows counterlung. The upper and lower tube are constructed of a very light, yet durable carbon fiber.
For the ideal use as a Sidemount rebreather the following adaptations were devised.
Side Mount Loop
The SF2 Sidemount rebreather has a DSV / mouthpiece especially designed for the sidemount application. In collaboration with the best Sidemount divers in the world, we have developed a unique mouthpiece with excellent features:
- Optimum hose feed
- Right / left hand use
- Integrated chin rest
- In water neutrally buoyant
Side Mount Frame
To keep the SF2 Sidemount rebreather as slim as possible, it has a special frame. This frame is made of stainless steel and fits very closely to the carbon tubes. Thus, there are no protruding parts.
To configure the SF2 Sidemount rebreather as close as possible to the body, it has three attachment points. We’ve designed a stainless steel rail at the top of the head and included two large Boltsnaps in the central region held via a hose clamp to allow for a streamlined attachment to your existing harness. The Boltsnaps can be varied in length, so that the rebreather can be positioned individually.
Manual Adds & Offboard Gas
To successfully accomplish this, the idea of “streamlined” configuration was ingeniously devised. The manual O2 feed has been built directly into the body of the rebreather. Thus, the diver can inject oxygen into the SF2 rebreather via a simple push button. The external (DIL) gas supply is provided by the One Way Adapter and the Quick Disconnect Female whereby a reliable gas supply is ensured and cannot be confused.
