Miflex Xtreme Regulator Hoses (Carbon)
3/8″ male UNF x 9/16″ female
The Miflex Xtreme Regulator Hose (Carbon) is part of the Xtreme range of a scuba hoses. This range was developed with a number of leading recreational and technical divers who require high performance and longevity from their scuba gear. The Miflex team of engineers analysed the commonly encountered failure points of traditional rubber low pressure hoses, these tests resulted in the Xtreme high performance range.
Xtreme hoses feature an external nylon safety braiding designed to resist the snags and abrasions that divers often encounter. The patent-pending Xtreme double braiding also resists UV rays out of the water, thus extending the life span of the hoses.
Unlike the traditional hoses, the Xtreme nylon safety braiding is not simply pushed over the hose fittings. Instead the braiding is tightly bound and fixed to the hose core by stainless steel or brass sleeves. The result? Performance and durability in extreme situations. Tie the Xtreme hose in a tight knot and the flow of air remains continuous through the hose. Now that’s versatility!
The Xtreme also achieves a higher burst pressure more than double when compared to most traditional hoses. And in the event of a physical breach, Xtreme hoses actually work to reduce the amount of air lost. How? The advance Xtreme nylon safety braiding actively shrinks under pressure, reducing the rate of air loss and buying valuable time. Xtreme hose production is carried out on automatic assembly and testing lines designed and manufactured exclusively by Miflex. Each and every Xtreme hose is subjected to more than 30 individual safety and specification checks. Any hose found not to meet the exact Miflex standard is immediately scrapped.

Please be aware that this hose comes as standard with 3/8″ male UNF x 9/16″ female fittings. This hose is also available for older regulators with the 1/2″ male UNF x 9/16″ female fittings here.
