After thirty years of EXO production, Kirby Morgan will discontinue the EXO-BR Full Face Mask (effective now).
To discontinue the EXO-BR Mask was purely a business decision. It was not based on quality, performance, or any safety factors whatsoever involving the EXO-BR Mask.
Discontinuation of the mask was based on the fact that the tooling is very worn and out of date. Unfortunately, it is no longer cost effective to keep the tooling in working condition.
The EXO-BR manual and technical support will remain available. The manifold block will remain available.
However, availability for the EXO-BR Mask and its parts will be LIMITED TO STOCK ON HAND!
The EXO Full Face Mask was designed for both surface supplied and scuba diving. By enclosing the diver's eyes, nose and mouth, the EXO permits nearly normal speech when used in conjunction with most wireless, and all hardwire underwater communication systems. Its light weight design allows divers to work long dives without jaw or neck fatigue. This mask has a modular communications design that permits rapid and simple maintenance. An optional Hard Shell gives added surfaces for mounting lights, cameras etc. The ear equalization device, a nose block which is adjustable to several different heights, fits a wide variety of noses and faces. The oral nasal helps keep the CO2 levels to a minimum and improves breathing and communications. The Balanced Regulator EXO-BR was developed to meet strict new European CE requirements and is fully CE approved as well as U.S. Navy approved. It meets and surpasses EN 250 requirements for regulator performance. The EXO-BR frame is the same safety yellow as the standard SuperLite helmets and KMB 18 Bandmasks. The EXO-BR Balanced Regulator helps reduce the work of breathing for the diver. The regulator balances the intermediate air pressure against the valve sealing pressure inside the regulator. This enables the regulator to instantly adjust to changes in line pressure. The Balanced Regulator provides improved breathing and is adjustable for a wide range of intermediate pressures between 100 PSI - 230 PSI.
