CARBON TECHNOLOGY: Extreme light weight, exceptional mechanical resistance and high thermal conductivity make carbon the perfect material for the most demanding divers and every condition.

FUSION BLADDER: Combines features of backmounted and classic bladder. High lift capacity, unrestricted movement and a comfortable position on the surface characterize this type of bladder.

ALL METAL TECHNOLOGY: Outstanding mechanical resistance and high thermal conductivity make our metal 2nd stages extremely long lasting and ideal for cold water dives. The high thermal conductivity of metal reduces the dry mouth feeling during the dive.

CLASSIC BLADDER: Air-cell enveloping diver on the sides and back. High lift capacity and a very comfortable position on the surface characterize this bladder design.

RIDDLED FOOT POCKET: The perforations prevent stagnating water flow from slowing you down. Eliminating this “parachute effect” you’ll slide faster through the water. Furthermore the openings eliminate any suction effect, making doffing easier.

ULTRALIGHT TECHNO POLYMER: Abrasion resistant and affordable, ideal for diving in warm and moderate water temperatures. DFC ∤ Dynamic Flow Control: Minimizes intermediate pressure drop during inhalation thus maximizing gas delivery, especially under extreme conditions. NCC ∤ Natural Convection Channel: Increases cold water performance by creating a flow of water across the regulator. The flow is driven by the change of density in water with temperature. TRI-MATERIAL VALVE: Patented technology combines two grades of polyurethane on a brass core. Maximizes performance, safety and reliability. VAD ∤ Vortex Assisted Design: The air bypass tube conveys air to the mouthpiece creating a swirling vortex with a low pressure area in the center that keeps the diaphragm down during inhalation, for very sensitive and easy breathing at all depths.

For over 20 years, Gianluca Genoni has been actively dedicated to deep freediving: he has set 15 world records in the different freediving disciplines. On August 17th, 1996 in Siracusa, he set his first world record in limited variable ballast at -106m. Genoni became the undisputed king of this discipline, beating his own records a good 10 times. He set his latest world record in the waters of Sharm El Sheikh on October 5th, 2006, descending to -141m. And not only limited variable ballast: Gianluca has also set two records in absolute variable ballast: - In 1998 he reached -135 m - In 1999 he conquered -138 m And last but not least, on October 2nd, 2010, in the waters off the coast of Zoagli, Genoni tackled a brand new diving discipline, descending to a depth of -152 meters with the help of a dive scooter, thereby setting a new record. In his book “Emozioni... profonde” (“Deep... emotions”), he recounts his sporting achievements through a reflective look at his life. This profound passion has led Gianluca to teach, create his own curriculum, and to help spread the safe practice of freediving through courses and internships around the world. Since 2002 Gianluca has taken part in medical and scientific tests and studies into freediving, and especially regarding the physiological study of vital parameters after a prolonged period of apnea. For 17 years, Gianluca Genoni has been a spokesperson for Mares and an incredibly important figure for consulting and testing in developing equipment dedicated to freediving at the highest levels.

Riccardo Sturla Avogadri was born to a family with a long history of risktaking, and more recently, of extreme sports. His passion for diving and great love for sharks led him to undertake some fascinating research into relaxation techniques, using a special massage on the snout to put many species of sharks to sleep (“relaximmobility” technique). The founder of the Shark Academy – an association whose purpose is understanding the world of the sea, sharks, their habitat, and how to protect the environment in which they live – currently boasts a great many fans and supporters. In 2007 in Jesolo Lido (VE), he founded the Aquarium-Museum-Exhibition, with 25,000 pieces in the collection, including, the 6-meter “white shark” and the jaw of “Megalodon”. In the aquarium there are gigantic tanks where it’s possible to dive without protection amongst 40 sharks and 20 crocodiles of a good 40 different species, including tiger sharks, bull sharks, longimanos, and 4-meter Nile crocodiles. Mares has always been by his side in all of his undertakings.

COMPANY. profile Would Ludovico Mares ever have imagined that over the course of 60 years his small factory in Rapallo would become the worldwide leader in the production and distribution of diving equipment? Mares was founded in 1949 by former Istrian diver Ludovico Mares, who served in the Austrian Navy during World War I. Mares quickly became a small industrial company with a continuous increase in sales and never an absence of ideas for new and improved products. As the passion for diving grew around the world in the late ‘60s, the company expanded into the European diving and snorkeling market. Between 1978 and 1982, Mares earned an undisputed place as the global market leader in fins: today nearly all diving and snorkeling fins are produced using plastic materials, according to the manufacturing process invented by Mares. The company also rose quickly to the top of the regulator market, becoming an uncontested leader as well. Today, Mares has a presence in over 80 countries around the world and is internationally recognized as the leading company in the manufacturing of diving products

featuring only the best in cutting egde technology. Every solution Mares offers represents the forefront of today’s technology and is the result of the best in Italian design. A complete passion for the sea and an all-encompassing vocation implanted in the history of its legendary founder is felt at a continuous powerful level by everyone on the Mares staff. Mares has always been the best the diving industry has to offer. We will continue our strive towards greater design and innovative technology. Mares has proven its superior excellence in all waters with the 2012 collection.

REGULATORS Advanced technology, innovation, reliability and safety are the right words to describe Mares regulators. Years of experience in the design and manufacturing of diving equipment bring the most innovative and advanced technology to Mares regulators. Examples of exclusive and patented technologies are for instance the DFC system in the first stages, which guarantees a stable flow of air at all depths even under extreme conditions. Another exclusive is the Tri- material high pressure valve which offers superior reliability. All Mares second stages offer the unique patented VAD system which reduces the effort needed to inhale for natural and easy breathing, while the Mesh Grid system prevents free-flow in the presence of strong currents, without requiring additional adjustments. When you choose a regulator, there are a number of different issues you need to consider. For instance the type of dive: if you travel frequently to exotic locations, you

need a small, lightweight regulator, so using a technopolymer regulator is the ideal solution. On the other hand, if you dive in cold water, it’s crucial to use a regulator made of a material with high thermal conductivity, like metal. In the first category Mares proudly introduces the new Instinct: a revolutionary regulator boasting new technology, an innovative shape, and the lowest weight. Carbon and Abyss second stages prevent the dry mouth effect by capitalizing the humidity inside the second stage as you inhale. Carbon, in addition, represents the ideal solution for both worlds in that it is lightweight yet has the thermal conductivity comparable to metal For those seeking extreme adventures, such as diving under the polar ice, the new Abyss 22 Navy with its ANU* listing is the right choice. *Diving Equipment Authorized for U.S. Navy Use

INSTRUMENTS In these past few years, Mares has turned the dive computer from an exclusive instrument for few to an easy-to-use companion for every dive. Since the early 90’s, our computers have evolved and remained true to our fundamental philosophy: reliable, safe and user friendly, both in operation and in reading of the information. The apex of this development is Icon HD net ready. With the new and exclusive Mares bidirectional technology, variable sampling rate and the proven Mares gas consumption algorithm, Icon HD now provides real time information on your breathing gas status and range. The clarity and immediacy of the information are but few of the cardinal points around which Icon HD has been developed. Only by means of a TFT (Thin Film Transistor) LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) is such result achievable. The color display shows dive information both numerically and graphically. Colors are used to identify key situations and to differentiate fields such as depth, no stop time, dive time, ascent speed and more. The graphic mode depicts the actual dive profile in real time. Icon HD net ready comes with a reprogrammable processor, which allows for any new advances in firmware updates and latest developments. For existing Icon HD owners, the new version 2.0 with its new layout is available as a free download at www.mares.com.

As all other Mares dive computers, Icon HD net ready utilizes the RGBM Mares-Wienke algorithm with deep stops, but it doesn’t end here. A digital compass with bearing function, map function for viewing an image of the dive site during the dive, logbook with graphical dive profile representation are just few of the many unique features of Icon HD. The 2012 catalogue introduces another incredible new item: the Matrix computer. Like its predecessors, Nemo and Nemo Excel, it boasts an elegant and unmistakably Mares design. All the rest is completely new. Matrix represents Mares’ biggest effort ever in the watch computer segment. It’s a full dot matrix display, with a 100% upgradeable software, in addition to the wider number of functions Mares offered for a wrist computer. Those already familiar with the magnificent clarity of the Icon HD information will find the same level of attention and details on the Matrix. Those who meet Mares computers for the first time will be impressed by the overall performance of Matrix. The Mares computer line includes many other products such as Nemo Wide with its huge display and enormous viewing angle, 4-button operation, ergonomic design and upgradeable software. For maximum simplicity, Puck and its one-button operation offers a complete dive computer that is incredibly easy to use. For those who prefer gas integrated computers, Puck Air shows tank pressure and time remaining based on gas consumption.

MATRIX Another step into the future code: 414166

킷 FULL DOT MATRIX DISPLAY 킷 UPGRADEABLE SOFTWARE 킷 PC INTERFACE INCLUDED A full-dot matrix high resolution display, tilt- compensated digital compass with bearing function, graphic profile during the dive and multigas algorithm make Matrix arguably the most impressive Mares watch-style dive computer ever. A choice of digital or analog time of day display, second time zone and a precision stopwatch, all in a sleek metal housing make it the coolest product to show off with in between dives. Did we mention a 35-hour logbook including dive profile graphs at 5s sampling rate? The rechargeable battery means years and years of maintenance free use. The charging cradle doubles up as PC (or Mac) interface for downloading dives and for firmware upgrades.

SCREEN PROTECTOR code: 415174 Works on all Mares dive computers

Ŷ EXCLUSIVE BI-DIRECTIONAL COMMUNICATION Ŷ DISPLAYS TANK PRESSURE, TIME REMAINING AND CURRENT GAS CONSUMPTION Icon HD net ready is the new frontier in gas integrated dive computers. Whereas until now the dive computer was simply a passive receiver of information, with the new Mares bidirectional technology, Icon HD is ready to communicate actively with the tank module for an unprecedented level of safety and user friendliness. The combination with Icon’s high definition color display brings tank pressure information to a new level. Detailed numerical information is accompanied by intuitive, at-a-glance color coding. Blue and green means the pressure is above the mid tank warning, red means the pressure is below the reserve, orange and yellow for values inbetween. The thresholds are set by the user for maximum customization.

TANK MODULE code: 414311

Define your tank in terms of operating tank pressure, turn-around point and tank reserve, and Icon will generate 5 pressure ranges and associate a logic sequence of colors for an immediate at-a-glance interpretation of your tank status.

BCD’s Our challenge remains that to maintain a position of leadership in technology and innovation. All models are the result of this inspiration, and are constructed with the utmost attention to detail both in design choices and in materials, comfortable and durable. The big news for 2012 is the back buoyancy version of the Hybrid BCD. With its sibling, it shares the foldable backpack, the ultra-flat valves and the harness completely uncoupled from the aircell. In line with our company philosophy, this jacket is aimed at the recreational diver, but you’ll see some technical divers taking a closer look as well! The first aspect you will notice is the comfort. A feeling of being one with the jacket; a direct result of the extralong, preformed and reinforced shoulder pads, which work in perfect unison with the exclusive Suspension System type cummerbund. Modularity is another key aspect. In addition to aircell and harness, the rear and side panels are independent and can be removed. This includes the cargo pockets, the MRS plus weight system and the upper back trim weight system. Once removed, what you are left with is a lean and mean diving machine!

Assemble it with the optional lumbar trim weight kit and you have a terrific travel BCD. The Mares BCD line has weight-integrated as well as non-weight- integrated BCD’s. It is exactly in this last segment that we introduce another novelty for 2012. Did you want to buy a standard BCD, but were wondering if maybe later on you would rather have weight integration? Wonder no more: the Spirit Pro and Rover Pro (Dive Center line) start off as standard non-weight-integrated BCD’s but can be upgraded in the blink of an eye to the full-featured MRS plus system. Once you feel ready for weight integration, purchase the dedicated kit, assemble it with a few clicks and off you go with your new MRS plus jacket. A prominent feature in the Mares BCD line is the Airtrim system, which replaces both the standard exhaust valves and the inflator, combining them into one pneumatically-controlled device. Thanks to the patented Twin Exhaust Valve, all you need are two buttons to control buoyancy, trim, ascent and descent! Travelers will find dedicated products in our line-up like the F-Light and Pegagus, women will also appreciate Kaila and Hybrid models featuring a cut dedicated to the female anatomy.

SUITS Last year, with the introduction of the new She Dives line for female divers, we completed the renewal of the wetsuit line. This process culminated in January 2011 when, for the second time in a row, Mares won the prestigious Tauchen Award at the Boot Show in Düsseldorf. Trilastic continues to be the guiding philosophy in the way we design wetsuits. Intelligent placement of different materials of different thicknesses, combined with a smart choices of inner and outer linings, with the primary objective of maximizing thermal comfort on your dives. Mares wetsuits are split into three main families: Extreme, Elite and Prime. The Extreme line applies innovative solutions for maximum protection in cold waters (2ndSkin, Antarctica, Isotherm). Wetsuits in the Elite line are made of 100% ultrastretch neoprene and no detail is left unattended (Flexa). The wetsuits in the Prime line are more traditional, although you will still find panels of ultrastretch neoprene strategically placed where they contribute the most. Riding this wave of innovation, in 2012 we will introduce two new dry suits and the corresponding undergarments, in addition to several accessories for wetsuits. Mobby’s, the well-known manufacturer from Japan, has long been a valuable partner of Mares and the results of this collaboration can be observed in

/$<(5,1*3+</2623+< 86$%/(,1',9,'8$//<

the two dry suits, Tech Fit and Pro Fit. Tech Fit, which is a diagonal front zip dry suit, and is manufactured in CORDURA®500D paired with two sheets of Tarpaulin type PVC. One of the PVC sheets is combined with fine Aluminium powder to minimize the heat loss. Another sheet is hot melt type of PVC to make the glued seal tape watertight. The end result is a three-layer suit with excellent durability and thermal protection characteristics. The Pro Fit is made in High-Density Neoprene. As density of neoprene increases, so does its ruggedness but usually this decreases flexibility. It is no secret, recreational divers want comfort. So in order to meet this requirement, Mares by Mobby’s HD neoprene, increases the density to the maximum extent possible, achieving maximum flexibility, as well as extreme durability. Both the Tec Fit and the Pro Fit are equipped with latex neck and wrist seals, Mobby’s ultra flat valves (Palm Fit design) and integrated vulcanized rubber boots. The suit comes in a convenient dry bag, within which you will also find the hood (with valve) and the low pressure hose. Ideal for both suits are the new Comfort  300 and Comfort 150 undergarments, thought through to the last detail. The Mares offering is completed with the Thermo & Rash Guard lines. Ideal for swimming pool training, snorkelling and as first layer under a wetsuit.

Ŷ HIGH DENSITY NEOPRENE Ŷ INTEGRATED VULCANIZED BOOTS Ŷ REINFORCED KNEE PADS

Made in Cordura®500D paired with two sheets of Tarpaulin type PVC. Diagonal frontal zipper makes it very easy to don, even by yourself. Each leg has a large side pocket within which a D-ring allows for secure placement of accessories. A crotch strap further enhances an already great fit, with a torso length adjustment that tailors the suit to almost any height. The hood has a built-in check valve, which allows trapped gas to be expelled. Integrated boots of vulcanized rubber and latex seals in neck and wrists completes the picture.

In recent years, the popularity of dry suits in recreational diving has grown around the world. The innovative design of Mares by Mobby’s suits has played an indisputably significant role in this development. Pro Fit is made of a special type of stretchy high density neoprene. It is designed to minimize the shrinkage even when regularly diving deep. Latex neck and wrist seals, hood and integrated boots, a complete package for an easy start into dry suit diving.

The Comfort 300 and Comfort 150 are the ideal way to complete our new dry suits. The only difference between the two is in the weight of the fabric, hence the 300 is for extremely cold waters and the 150 is for more temperate waters. Each boasts a pocket on each side in addition to a small one on the chest, to store whatever small objects you take with you on the dive, such as a car key. Wrists and ankles are made of lycra and conical in shape, for easier donning. An elastic waistband minimizes bulk and gives a more tapered look, while the front zip has a double slider so it can be opened at either ends.

FINS Fins are among the most representative, not to mention indispensable, products in diving. Mares has spent over 60 years improving them with passion and innovation. The X-stream represents the culmination of these 60 years of research and development. Channel thrust, OPB, Tri-material construction, ABS buckles, and the new riddled foot pocket which eliminates the parachute effect. When kicking, water flows between the sides of the foot pocket and the boot, then stopping because it has nowhere else to go. This causes drag which reduces the efficiency of the forward propulsion. The many perforations in the X-streamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s foot pocket allow this water to escape, practically eliminating this source of energy loss. Furthermore, the material is very soft thus comfortable, with an X-shaped area of reinforced material on the top to guarantee that the power of your leg is transferred to the fin and from there to the water. As a result, the foot pocket is lighter, more comfortable yet highly efficient. X-stream is a superior fin which combines performance with weightlessness. The sensation of comfort it transmits to the diver is unbeatable. The Mares fin line comprises open heel as well as full foot fins. The new entry for 2012 is the Wave FF, the full foot sister of the Wave OH. The performance of the Wave has surprised everyone. The thrust transferred

from the large central channel of the blade and the comfort of the soft rubber foot pocket turned it into one of our best selling fins in recent years. The new full foot version is inspired in all aspects by the same features. Made in three materials with soft and comfortable foot pocket and a blade with a large center channel. Available in 6 sizes for the first year. The choice of fin is always subjective and depends on the performance you seek, the type of kick and the degree of training. The Mares range of fins covers all these possibilities. A fin with a broad and powerful blade employing the principle of the Channel Thrust, such as the Wave or Excel +, will respond with the greatest boost to your every impulse. A fin developed according to the principle of the OPB (Optimized Pivoting Blade), which optimizes the relationship between effort and performance, provides a good thrust for little effort; this is the case of the Volo Power or Volo Race. There are also timeless products, which have shaped the history of this brand and which do not need any introduction; this is the case of the fins of the Avanti family and the Superchannel. In the next pages you will find detailed information on the entire fin line, as a guide to help you choose the best product for your needs.

Another new entry in open heel fins, the Wave uses Tri-material construction to apply specific properties where needed.

The remainder has the rigidity and strength needed for superior propulsion. Unmistakably Mares.

The overall design of the Wave FF is strongly influenced by the development of the blade. Based on our Channel Thrust technology, it envelopes a large volume of water in the central area, which is then propelled out generating thrust with high efficiency. The threematerial construction means that we could select the best possible TPR for the foot pocket and thus obtain the highest comfort, while applying materials with the best elastic properties for the blade aiming at reaching the highest performance.

MASKS AND SNORKELS At Mares, the synonym for masks is “LiquidSkin”. The most important innovation since the introduction of silicone masks is Bi- Silicone technology. In all of the current masks on the market, the skirt is made of rubber, silicone, or another medium-hard elastomer. All of today’s masks are a compromise between the need of a hard material to provide support to the frame and lenses and that of a soft material to adapt to the contours of the face and provide a good fit. Until today, manufacturers have been forced to look for compromise solutions, since the skirt was made of a single material. Mares Bi-Silicone technology LiquidSkin® greatly surpasses the current single material skirt technology. LiquidSkin® incorporates two different types of silicone into one molded skirt: a firmer portion for support and a softer portion for contact with your face. The support structure and the area of the seal around the lenses are molded with a silicone that is 30% harder than in any traditional mask. The section that rests on your face is made with silicone that is 45% softer and 270% more elastic. As a result, the mask is stronger and more stable than any traditional mask, yet unbelievably

comfortable and with a superior fit. In addition, the marks that are typically left on your face after a dive are mostly eliminated. The superior elasticity and softness of LiquidSkin® allows the mask to fit perfectly on a wider range of faces. LiquidSkin® adapts to facial movement and offers a great seal, virtually eliminating water leakage. Equalization is easier due to the super soft nose pocket; it’s like pinching your own nose. Its lightweight and soft adherence to the face is so gentle that you forget you are wearing it. The new Ergo snorkel family was designed for maximum performance both for scuba divers and snorkelers alike. From one end to the other, the ergonomic shape fits perfectly to the side of the head. All three versions have a corrugated flex hose made using high quality silicone and features a snorkel keeper which can be adjusted in many positions. All three have an exhaust valve in the mouthpiece for prompt purging. The mouthpiece is moulded in soft rubber for greater shock and wear resistance, also to properly host the exhaust valve.
