Halcyon Contour Sidemount

Halcyon Contour Sidemount came after months of collaboration with some of the world’s top sidemount divers.

The Contour™ comes from the factory as a turnkey sidemount system. This system has a unique wing-shape that moves your center of gravity farther down, accommodating the lower sidemount cylinders and making it easier to trim out for the SM diver.

The Contour™ Sidemount System also allows for a side-slung configuration for open-water divers. The unit can be used right out of the box, without the modifications that many other units on the market require.

  • Requires no bungees for wing-shape control and boasts 22.68 KG / 50 LBS of buoyancy with theContour
  • The easily dumped top OPV is located on the inside of the wing for increased protection. The enclosed over-the-shoulder OPV strings allow for easy buoyancy control, without trapping the line.
  • High-wear areas at the top of the Contour
  • Adjustable lower tank-attachment point
  • Adjustable crotch strap and cylinder bungees
  • Multiple mounting holes and 1
  • Bottom-mounted, corrugated hose with an inflator that attaches easily to chest strap or shoulder strap
  • H-style harness provides adjustable chest strap
  • Complete with four adjustable D-rings on the shoulder straps, and two D-rings on the waist strap - all configurable to the diver
  • Also included is a set of weight pocket that holds 5 lbs. (2.3kg) each, and can be mounted to the top or bottom of the Contour
  • Inflator with 52 CM / 22 IN LP hose comes standard on Halcyon wings

Sidemount Wings

Sidemount wings are a specialised type of buoyancy control device (BCD) designed for sidemount scuba diving configurations. Unlike traditional back-mounted BCDs, sidemount wings are attached to the diver's sides, providing buoyancy and control while allowing for the carrying of cylinders under the diver's arms. This unique placement offers several advantages, including improved streamlining, easier access to valves, and the ability to carry multiple tanks without significantly increasing the diver's profile in the water. Sidemount wings are typically designed with a wing-like shape that wraps around the diver's torso, ensuring even distribution of buoyancy and enhancing maneuverability and comfort underwater.

The development of sidemount wings has been driven by the growing popularity of sidemount diving, particularly among technical divers exploring overhead environments such as caves and wrecks. These environments often require divers to navigate through tight spaces, where the flexibility and reduced size of the sidemount configuration can be significantly advantageous. Sidemount wings come in various sizes and lift capacities to accommodate different diving conditions and the number of cylinders being carried. They are often made from durable materials capable of withstanding harsh diving environments, featuring redundant bladder systems for added safety. As sidemount diving continues to evolve, so too do the designs and features of sidemount wings, with manufacturers constantly seeking to improve comfort, safety, and efficiency for divers in all types of underwater explorations.
