Technical Information

A unisex buoyancy compensator!
Tribord buoyancy compensators have been designed to suit both men and women. To do so, Tribord has focused on creating ergonomic shoulder straps with no pressure points.
Patented "V-shaped" straps
This buoyancy compensator been developed to ensure maximum freedom of movement while diving. The exclusive shape of the straps leave the arms free whilst providing even better support. With a less compressed chest area, this BC is just as suitable for women as it is for men. The buckles on the straps allow for easy and accurate adjustment thanks to their shape and size.
Releasable weight pockets
The Subea 500 buoyancy compensator has releasable weight pockets for up to 6 kg of lead. A handle makes it easy to get out the weight pocket.
Ergonomic accessories
With 3 D-shaped metal rings (ergonomic): one under the strap on the right, two at the bottom of the buoyancy compensator. A fourth located inside the right accessory pocket. The zip pulls are easy to find thanks to their alignment and shape. The location of the two accessory pockets has been lowered for easier access.
Reinforced back padding!
For added comfort, Tribord design teams have developed reinforced back padding on the back of the SUBEA 500 BC, providing cushioning behind the cylinder.
"Wraparound" buoyancy compensators
TRIBORD SUBEA diving buoyancy compensators are "wraparound", meaning that the volume of the air is distributed over the entire surface of the body that is covered, providing a significant level of buoyancy.

Product test
Our technical partner: Planet Ocean. This is a PADI 5 star diving centre based at Tribord. The centre uses Tribord equipment throughout the year. The team of instructors are rigorously involved in the development of Tribord diving products, from the design stage with product managers, designers and engineers, through prototype testing to long-term wear tests with the help of divers from beginner level to instructors in continuous training.

Stockage tips
It is important to store diving equipment away from sources that produce ozone. Keep your equipment in a dry place away from heat and direct sunlight.

Maintenance tips
After a particularly intense season or after a long period of inactivity, TRIBORD recommends an inspection and a service annually or after 100 dives to maintain the guarantee.

For the price unbeatable
Used for 3 to 6 months
Very well made jacket with several D rings for stowing gear, two pockets with velcro closures and integrated weights all for under £150! Like most integrated weight systems you are limited to the amount of weight you can store but you can take at least 8kg which should be enough for most warm water divers. It is a bit short of D rings but really for the price it is hard to complain. Sizes seem a bit on the large side but there is plenty of adjustment in the straps to compensate.
Very Nice
Used for 1 week or less
Tested my BCD in the pool, very snug fit, everything works as it should.
The weights pouches are prefect for throwing in belt weights or led shot.
