TOUGH. BEAUTIFUL. EXTRAORDINARY.
We wanted a World-Class BC…so we designed one. The BC1 wreaks havoc on traditional BC design. Every detail was reexamined. Every material and component was rethought. The BC1 is the TOUGHEST BC in the world. For divers who want only the BEST. Just like every new Atomic Aquatics product, the BC1 is designed to redefine and leads its category.
BC MATERIALS. REIMAGINED.
THE WEIGHT SYSTEM. REINVENTED.
The patented EZ-LOK Weight Release System is the easiest weight system ever designed. Quickly, easily load weights while in or out of the water. Two zippered pouches each hold up to 10 pounds of hard or soft weights. The weight pouches glide into the weight pockets under the arms and lock into place with a reassuring “SNAP.” A simple one-handed tug on the handle is all it takes to release. Weight pouch is secured at the BC back to prevent shifting forward. (US Patent No. 9,296,451)
THE TANK BAND. REENGINEERED.
The Atomic design team of seven industry professionals, with 152 years of collective diving equipment experience, applied our Atelier design approach to consider every detail of the BC1 and design each component for dura-bility, performance and ease-of-use. Pair the BC1 with a high-performance Atomic power inflation or safe-second option for the highest level of engineering and perfor-mance you can have on a dive.
1. Exclusive Laminated & Coated Waterproof Fabric
The custom matte finish fabric looks and feels unlike any other BC. The strong double-laminated polyurethane coated fabric is incredibly tough and actually SHEDS water like a raincoat.
2. Ratcheting CAM-LOK Tank Band
This Atomic design exclusive is the easiest tank band to use, working much like ski and snowboard bindings. Easily adapts to a wide variety of tank sizes. No more wetting a nylon web band and weaving it through a buckle.
3. Patented EZ-LOK Weight Release System
A remarkably easy-to-use design feature. Each weight pouch holds up to 10 lbs. of hard or soft weights, smoothly glides into pockets, and locks with a reassuring “SNAP”. Releases with a simple tug on the handle.
4. Quilted Backpad & Adjustable Lumbar Pad
Uniquely elegant and functional, enabling a diver to adjust for the most comfortable fit. BC1 carrying handle is concealed behind the backpad.
5. Sand-Resistant Pocket Zippers
Self-sealing zipper closes completely to prevent sand or debris from getting caught in zipper teeth.
6. Titanium-Coated Stainless Steel D-rings
Custom 316 Stainless Steel D-rings with Titanium PVD coating are corrosion-resistant and strategically placed for convenience.
7. Trim Weight Pockets
Each pocket holds up to 5 lbs. for improved diver profile in the water.
8. Non-Skid Tank Pad
Combined with the CAM-LOK tank band, the rigid molded tank pad and backpack provides ultimate tank security with CNC-Machined Stainless Steel hardware molded to the frame.
9. “Dry Glide” Exhaust Pull Dumps & Knobs
Low friction 316 Stainless Steel pull dumps in two locations with patent pending Anti-Floating Pull Knob with lengthened tails.
10. High-Peformance Inflation Choices
A truly elite world-class BC deserves high-performance inflation and safe second options. Dive with the innovatively designed Atomic SS1 available in Titanium or Stainless Steel. Or dive with a high performance pairing of the Atomic Octo and the Ai Power Inflator. Inflator/safe second options sold separately.
