Keep it Simple is the philosophy applied to all products designed and built by KISS Rebreathers. The most reliable machines are those that are straightforward, easy to use, and easy to repair, regardless of what function they are meant to perform. When designing underwater life support equipment, KISS Rebreathers feel that it is especially important to follow this philosophy. With this mind, KISS rebreathers are designed to be durable, yet easy to assemble, dive and learn how to use.
The KISS CLASSIC uses a buffered manual control system. Oxygen is added in two ways. Via the manual add valve and a continuous flow. The continuous flow is set to provide you with just below your actual requirement meaning that you only occasionally need to top-up to maintain setpoint during the dive. There are no complex electronics!
The only electronics is the three Jetsam independent backlit ppO2 displays. Each display has its own housing, battery and sensor, making the system completely redundant. The batteries are user changeable. Each display can be replaced independently and spares are easily affordable.
The IART unit-specific user course, combined with the unit specific IART manual, will prepare you with the knowledge and skills needed to safely dive the KISS CLASSIC CCR within no-decompression limits to a maximum depth of 40m.
