The Halcyon Element PLUS Wing system, is a twin tank BC based around the popular Evolve wing and a carbon fiber backplate in Halcyon's improved design integrating the cinch system onto that plate itself.
The system has a lift of 40 or 60 Lbs and consists of Halcyon's new and extremely light weight carbon fiber backplate complete with standard single loop harness and all stainless hardware, crotch strap as well as MC Storage Pak.

The Evolve Wing:
The Evolve integrates seamlessly with Halcyon's existing line of MC systems, and is available in two lift capacities, 40 lbs. (18 kg) or 60 lbs. (27 kg) lift
The Evolve's circular design allows for precise control of in-water buoyancy and trim. Horizontal trim is easily accomplished through the addition of lift at the base of the cylinders. While the typical doubles wing uses a horseshoe-shaped bladder, the Evolve draws its design inspiration from Halcyon's successful Eclipse circular bladder single-tank wing.
The Evolve builds upon Halcyon's dedication to designing gear for the advanced diver. The Evolve's development team focused on improvements in stability, buoyancy and trim control.
Gas trapping on one side or the other of the wing is virtually eliminated.
Technical divers depend upon the ability to control buoyancy by venting gas from both the inflator and the rear over-pressure valve.
The Evolve matches the Eclipse for ease of use of the rear over-pressure valve for venting gas during the dive. Wreck divers and cavers will immediately appreciate the Evolve's ease of buoyancy adjustment.
Because the Evolve's buoyancy cell circles the tanks, the wing has a much more streamlined profile than any other doubles wing on the market. It doesn't matter if you are swimming or scootering, the Evolve's profile cuts through the water with less drag and greater efficiency.
The Evolve has been extensively tested in every possible condition, from the tropics to the arctic, with aluminum and steel cylinders, with open circuit and with rebreathers.
Halcyon has worked closely with its international testing team to refine the design to create the first breakthrough in doubles wing design in decades.
Halcyon inner bladders are RF welded with a lifetime warranty on all seams.
Carbon Fiber Backplate & SS Hardware
The Halcyon carbon fiber backplate comes with complete secure harness, crotch strap and all stainless hardware. It can be used with all Halcyon and conventional wings. The utility holes allow attachment of the MC Storage Pak which comes with this system and allows stowing a variety of lift devices behind the diver. It is adaptable to be used on twinsets and single tank wings.
Halcyon Secure Harness:
The Halcyon Secure Harness® (continuous loop webbing and stainess hardware) allows for infinite adjustability, providing a perfect fit for all divers and diving systems. Men or women diving wet or dry will find the Secure Harness is without question the most stable and well-fitted design in the industry. Five point system insures snug fit and eliminates tank roll and drift.
- Bent D-rings facilitate one-handed storage of accessories like Scout lights or stage bottles.
- Complete adjustability of D-rings eliminates inappropriate attachment points.
- Quality Halcyon webbing and buckle.
