Our Summit Elite System is designed to offer greater flexibility for the experienced high altitude mountaineer, guide and Sherpa. The advantage of our Summit Elite System is the ability to change the flow rate from the shoulder mounted flow selector, rather than from the regulator mounted on the cylinder.
Our Summit Elite System consists of our Himalayan Oxygen Cylinder, our Himalayan Reducer with Flow Selector and our Himalayan Facemask.
Summit Elite System
Our Summit Elite System consists of our Himalayan Oxygen Cylinder, our Himalayan Reducer with Flow Selector and our Himalayan Facemask. Our Elite system has the added advantage of allowing the flow rate to be controlled by the flow selector mounted on the shoulder, rather than on the regulator attached to the cylinder.
Details of each of the components that make up our Summit Elite System are contained within the separate images below, click on the image for further information on each of the components.
The Flow Selector is mounted on the climbers shoulder allowing them to quickly and easily adjust their flow rate. The benefit of this is that it gives a climber greater control, they can turn the flow rate up if they are attempting a more strenuous section of the route and turn it down again as soon as they pass that section.
A good example would be bottlenecks on the way to the summit of Everest where a lot of oxygen can be burnt up unnecessarily while waiting for the route to clear.
Our Himalayan Facemask is the most advanced oxygen delivery system available. It features:
Exoskeleton: Provides secure platform for valves and head harness, insulation and prevents spreading across face
Oxygen Reservoir: Protected from damage and wind. Clear cover for observation of correct function
Exhalation Valve: Thermal protection by 'snood' to prevent freezing
Ambient Air Valve: Protected from distortion by wind resistant cover
