If you’re looking for a travel-friendly rebreather, adaptable to all equipment configurations, look no further than the Triton CCR rebreather. Designed for every environment, this versatile, lightweight rebreather offers something for every diver, and grows with your goals. In this post, we’re putting the Triton CCR rebreather under the spotlight, to show you why it could be your perfect match—for both recreational and technical diving.
Why Choose the Triton CCR Rebreather?
Apart from the usual advantages a standard rebreather offers, the Triton CCR rebreather has some standout features that make it one of the best CCRs available today.
The Triton CCR rebreather is the lightest rebreather on the market. Weighing in at only 7kg, this unique CCR enables you to travel light, avoiding high luggage costs. You’ll also never have to wave goodbye to your CCR-baby at airport luggage check-in, allowing you to keep it by your side for the whole flight! Similarly, the CCR Triton is the only civilian chest-mounted CCR on the market today. Likewise, it’s the only mCCR (Mechanical Closed-Circuit Rebreather) to be CE rated to a depth of 100 metres.
Here at Lagona Divers Technical, we’ve already begun pushing the limits of the Triton CCR rebreather, exploring many of the untouched, sub-100 metre Canyon systems Dahab has on offer.
Produced by Multi Safety Support System (M3S) in France, the CCR Triton has supported divers pushing the limits of exploration in many different environments and challenging conditions. It was Fréderic Swierczynski’s rebreather of choice when setting the world record for diving at altitude. It also supported some of the divers involved in the extreme operation of the Tham Luang cave rescue in 2018. Given this record, there’s no question of the reliability of the Triton CCR rebreather.
Being a small, compact chest-mounted rebreather, the CCR Triton is highly versatile and adaptable.
It can be configured for sidemount, twinset or even single tank use. For extreme exploration dives, it can also double-up as a bailout rebreather, used in conjunction with the X-CCR, for example. This means that the Triton CCR rebreather is adaptable to all environments. From deep open ocean diving or shallow close-encounters with wildlife, to cave and wreck penetration, the CCR Triton rebreather will serve all your needs.
