Apeks WTX Wings
Single cylinder wings, often referred to as doughnuts, are oval-shaped air cells or bladders that are not permanently attached to a harness. While single cylinder wings have their origins in the realm of technical diving, they are becoming prevalent in the recreational community.
Not only are these single cylinder wings streamlined, but due to their continuous loop shape, they are very stable underwater. There is no dramatic shift of air from left to right.
