A backplate and wing BC configuration generally come in two pieces – the backplate (stainless or aluminium) and the wing. Sometimes the harness can also be a separate piece.
The whole purpose of moving to a diving BC like this is to make it easy to adapt to different types of diving such as twin set and/or single cylinder diving. The system is fundamentally simple and easy to use.
The wing provides the lift, the backplate and harness secure everything together as well as to the cylinder and to you. Your harness can be a one piece harness or one with quick release buckles.
Wings are available in many different lift capacities that are generally described in pounds (lbs of lift)
Lastly the backplates are available in stainless steel or aluminium. Choosing between the two is all about weighting. A stainless back plate weighs in at around 2.2kgs more than its aluminium counterpart.
We carry a large variety of Backplates, Wings and Harnesses.
