18# MACH V Extreme Wing
The 18# MACH V Extreme Series Wing for Singles with Armored Extreme Explorer Fabric. The low profile produces less drag in the water. The extreme series wing provides the greatest puncture and abrasion resistance than any wing we have made.
Puncture and abrasion protection is provided by the tiny, hard guard plates that are adhered to conventional and non-conventional base fabrics. Because the gap between guard plates is very small, it provides high levels of protection from sharp pointed objects and abrasion. The fabric was originally designed for protection against hypodermic needles in the medial field. Complete with roll control so you will not have to use an STA (Single Tank Adaptor) with a OxyCheq backplate. Easy access to bladder via a 360 degree zipper.

Release the inflator valve and manualy add air via the mouth piece or LP inflator hose to fill the wing with air.
Shack the water around the inside of the wing.
