Let your creativity loose with Halcyon Custom Colour Evolve Wing System. Select the colour or pattern for the front, back and gusset of the wing, webbing colours and even the Halcyon logo colour to make your dive system as unique as you are!
You can use the interactive Halcyon’s Custom Wing Configurator to design and see your unique Halcyon Custom Colour Evolve Wing System. Then simply make your selection here. As this is specifically manufactured for you only, the estimated production time is 7 to 9 weeks.
The Halcyon Evolve’s full-circular design allows for precise control of in-water buoyancy and trim while essential horizontal trim is easily accomplished through the addition of lift at the base of the cylinders.
Choose between the adjustable Cinch harness or the standard ‘DIR’ harness. The backplate and harness will arrive fully assembled and require only to be mated with the wing after adjustments are made for size.

Halcyon Custom Colour Evolve Wing
The Evolve’s circular design allows precise control of in-water buoyancy and trim. Horizontal trim is easily accomplished through the addition of a lift at the base of the wing. Gas trapping on one side or the other of the wing is virtually eliminated.
The Evolve wing for twinset diving integrates seamlessly with Halcyon’s existing line of MC systems and is available in two lift capacities: 40lbs and 60lbs. For most divers the Evolve 40lbs provides more than enough lift.
The Halcyon Evolve Wing matches the Halcyon Eclipse single cylinder wing for ease of use of the rear over-pressure valve for venting gas during the dive. Wreck divers and cavers will immediately appreciate Evolve’s ease of buoyancy adjustment.
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 Halcyon Evolve has been extensively tested in every possible condition, from the tropics to the Arctic, with aluminium and steel cylinders.
The Evolve builds upon Halcyon’s dedication to designing gear for the advanced diver. The Evolve’s development team focused on stability, buoyancy and trim control improvements.

Halcyon Standard Harness
The Halcyon Secure Harness fitted to the Halcyon backplate allows for infinite adjustability, providing a perfect fit for all divers.
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. The five-point system ensures a snug fit and eliminates tank roll and drift.
Bent D-rings facilitate one-handed storage of accessories like backup lights or stage bottles. Complete adjustability of D-rings eliminates inappropriate attachment points.

Halcyon Cinch Harness upgrade
The Halcyon Cinch Adjustable Harness redefines what it means to dive a backplate, building upon a platform of simplicity while providing unprecedented security and ease of adjustment.
Halcyon developed the Cinch to save divers time and effort while sizing, fine-tuning and resizing diving harnesses.
Now you can change suits or divers and adjust the harness in a flash without compromising the harness integrity or Halcyon’s trademark, continuous webbing.
Adjustments to the Halcyon Cinch Adjustable Harness occur by simply sliding the harness through a unique assembly. You can even easily adjust the fit of their plate in or out of the water with a simple push or pull.
If you need a quick way to get out of your dive system or if you regularly change the thickness of your diving suit, Cinch Adjustable Harness will change the way you dive.
The Halcyon Cinch is specifically designed for Halcyon backplates and therefore does not fit all backplates.
The below Cinch components will be fully fitted to your backplate:
- Cinch adapter plate
- Halcyon Harness Webbing
- Separate left-hip D-ring assembly
- Extension bolt
- Bolts kit four stainless steel bolts with weldmate nuts
- Right-hip light retainer assembly
- Weight pocket attachment (pair) which allows the secure harness webbing to slide freely without affecting the placement of the light, ACB or D-ring.
- Quick-adjust crotch strap
Halcyon MC Storage Pak
The Halcyon backplate pocket is the most efficient means to store any of the various Halcyon inflatable markers with ease.
Stowing your favorite lift device in a Halcyon Storage Pak provides a hassle-free storage place without compromising the ability for rapid deployment of a SMB or lift bag.
As with most Halcyon products, an immense amount of behind-the-scenes work is required to create a plate we proudly sell.
Halcyon backplates have been refined to provide the highest-quality finish and materials available. Small details, like the unique bends near the bottom of the plate, create an ergonomic curve, increasing diver comfort. Meanwhile, the precise fabrication process ensures the quality you have come to expect from Halcyon.
Specially designed for mating with all Halcyon and conventional wings, the Halcyon backplate is available in 3mm Stainless Steel and Aluminum. The utility holes allow easy mating with the MC Storage Pak to stow an SMB or to fit a drysuit inflation system.

What backplate to use?
While not set in stone, aluminium backplates are generally preferred by travelling or wet suit divers as they are lighter than their stainless steel counterparts.
The popular backplate for drysuit diving is stainless steel, where the additional weight is a benefit (spreading out the weight needed to compensate for buoyancy while taking it off the diver’s waist).
Both backplates are based on the same Halcyon design and are compatible with the Halcyon Cinch Adjustable Harness. Most UK divers who use drysuits prefer the steel backplate.
