New Atomic SS1 Delivers The Breathing Performance of a Primary
Regulator in a Unique Safe-Second Design
Eagerly Anticipated New Atomic Product For the First
Time Combines Performance, Simplicity and Reliability
Huntington Beach, Calif. – Atomic
has released the SS1, the newest and most technically advanced
a safe-second/ inflator ever developed. Atomic regulators
have become world famous for performance, an innovative
design and the use of new, high-tech materials. Those features
have been incorporated into this new generation of safe-second/
inflators that deliver the same level of performance and
reliability found in every Atomic regulator. Unlike other
products in this category, the breathing performance of
the SS1 rivals that of high performance second stages,
and the exclusive, patented seat-saving orifice insures
long life and low maintenance.
While the SS1 is technically a "safe-second",
there’s nothing secondary about its construction,
design and most of all, its performance. Quite possibly
the only secondary regulator actually built like a primary
second stage, each SS1 features Atomic’s patented "seat-saving
orifice" that not only delivers smooth, efficient
breathing at any depth, but also insures long-life and
"In the past, emergency safe-seconds and octopus regulators
have not delivered the same breathing performance as a
primary second stage. That all changes with the SS1," notes
Atomic’s Doug Toth. "We used the same proven
design concepts, patented features and standards used in
every Atomic primary regulator and created the SS1. The
result in a product unlike any other on the market today – period."
Designed to work with virtually any BCD on the market today,
the SS1 is built with an ingenious adaptor system. As a
result, the SS1 delivers exceptional performance when used
with BCDs from manufacturers including Seaquest, Zeagle,
Aqualung, Mares, Oceanic, Scubapro and many others.
Atomic’s award-winning design team knows diving.
That’s why they engineered the SS1 with a low-profile
elliptical design so the unit will lie flat on a BC jacket.
The result is more comfortable, streamlined dives with
improved performance and comfort. The SS1’s large
red inflator buttons are easy to locate and use at any
time during a dive – especially if an emergency situation
were to arise. The SS1 offers either pneumatic or oral
inflation of the BCD for buoyancy control.
Installation of the SS1 takes just a few minutes, but the
performance the SS1 will deliver lasts considerably longer.
The SS1 carries an unprecedented two-year limited warranty.
More importantly, the factory service interval for the
SS1 is two years and 300 dives – something no other
manufacturer is willing to, or can, match.
The attractive SS1 unit is built from a durable, impact
resistant outer housing. Inside, components are made from
lightweight Titanium, Zirconium/Nickel-plated brass and
316 stainless steel. Because these materials are used in
the SS1, there is virtually no wear or corrosion from the
The SS1 is built with a convenient and unique quick-disconnect
feature that allows users to easily remove and store the
SS1 assembly separately along with computers, the primary
regulator or personal gear.
The SS1, available now from Atomic Aquatics dealers around
the world, has a suggested retail price of $228. This includes
the SS1 assembly, adapter kit and the unconditional 2-year
limited warranty. For more details about the SS1, contact
