BCD (Buoyancy Control Device)

Technical Rear Donut BCD

After two years of studies and tests, Rofos finally proposes a series of technical donut rear jackets.

The models come with four different capacities and are designed for double tanks.

The 30 pounds model goes with 7 + 7 and 8.5 + 8.5 tanks, 40 pounds with the 10 + 10 and 12 + 12, 50 pounds with the 15 + 15 and 16 + 16, and 60 pounds with the 18 + 18 and 20 +20.

It is available in three versions: all black, gray-black, and red-gray-black.

On the surface the jackets ensure excellent support even with heavy equipment. Underwater, the feeling is that of great stability and hydrodynamics, with an ease of management never seen before. The air volumes are well distributed and whatever position you may assume underwater, you’ll always be able to manage the air with ease and precision. The rear valve can be reached with extreme ease and is placed optimally for unloading. The loading button on the inflator has a simple and robust design.
