Atomic BC1


  • This products Overview

    The BC. Redefined. The Atomic Aquatics BC1 is designed to be the TOUGHEST performance BC in the world. The BC1 redefines the traditional jacket BC design. Every detail was reexamined. Every material and component was rethought. The new Atomic BC1 is designed for the diver who wants the absolute BEST available. The BC1 is crafted using a unique double-laminated polyurethane-coated fabric and corrosion-resistant metals. The attractive matte-coated fabric sheds water so the BC1 is virtually DRY seconds after surfacing. This exclusive Atomic Aquatics BC series fabric is incredibly strong and durable to provide years of confident diving. It holds nearly double the pressure of standard BC materials, is virtually impenetrable, and resists abrasion, tears, and punctures. Self-cleaning, UV, and stain-resistant, it also resists chemicals, mold, rot, and mildew.

    Advanced Inflation

    Atomic Rethought every aspect of the traditional BCD, they didn’t miss any strides when developing the very first high-performance inflation system, a perfect pair to their highly acclaimed high-performance regulators. Available in both stainless steel and titanium the corrosion-resistant design will deliver exceptional diver-friendly inflation.


    The exclusive Atomic Aquatics EZ-LOK Weight Release System enables divers to 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 (14 pounds for X-Large size). Weight pouches glide into 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. The weight pouch is secured at the BC back to prevent shifting forward. (US Patent No. 9,296,451)


    Atomic knows streamlining like no other manufacturer, they thought of this when designing all aspects; Atomic designed the first low friction stainless steel exhaust valves, combined with the innovative custom matt material, which acts against water similar to a raincoat, resistance in the water is decreased drastically.


    Every feature of this BCD is designed to stand above the rest, the BC1 features Custom 316 Stainless steel d rings with titanium PVD Coating for all your accessory needs. Combined with the cam-lock tank band, the BCD features an anti-slip tank pad to prevent cylinder slip.


    The Ratcheting CAM-LOK Tank Band is the result of Atomic Aquatics engineers rethinking everything. It allows divers to mount and secure the BC1 to a wide range of tank sizes in just seconds. The ratcheting band is similar to the bindings on ski boots and quickly adjusts without the cumbersome weaving of webbing through a buckle. Pressing the over-center buckle locks it down. The strong one-piece band is polyurethane coated and sealed from the elements so it won’t slip, stretch, or absorb water like conventional nylon webbing.

    The atomic BC1 is packed with more features that stand well above the rest, enquire with our staff from Kiwi Divers or go onto the Atomic Aquatics website for more details. https://www.atomicaquatics.com/products/bcd/bc1/?v=8e3eb2c69a18
