The STRIKE PERFORMANCE is the more affordable of the range and an awesome all-rounder! The new single lined back panel gives freedom of movement where needed, while the Crash_Padz at the shins and ribs give confidence to the progressive rider. Robust in design – thanks to the the durable Nylon at the legs and torso. Target Group: The progressive waterman with an ambition to improve their riding skills. Upgraded at Performance level: Warm and cosy Hot_Stuff lining. Abrasion resistant Grind_Tex knee panels. Super Flex – Great overall range of movement, especially in the arms and legs. Warm – Hot_Stuff lining at front and back. Crash_Padz – Additional Neoprene pads provide protection against pressure and impact, which can often cause injury to sensitive and vulnerable parts of the body (shins, ribs). The number of pads vary according to the suit and each pad consists of a special high density K_Type Neoprene Foam to dampen the force of impact. Water_Gate_Plus – All ION GBS semidry wetsuits (long arms and legs,) are equipped with the Water_Gate_Plus batwing panel, placed on the back behind the zip. Its purpose is to act as a barrier against water which likes to seep into the suit via the back zip. The final touch to this feature is the glued blind-stitched seams, which are covered by extra sealing Neoprene Tape. Seam_Reinforcements – All stress points are reinforced and secured from the inside with Melco tape for increased lifespan. If you accidentally left the suit in the trunk of your car on a hot day, they can start to peel off. Gently use an iron over the affected area as the glue is activated by heat. Contour_Cut – To improve flexibility and comfort, all ION wetsuits come with the ION Contour_Cut. It greatly enhances flex in the collar, wrists, elbows, insteps and the back of the knees. Leg_Loop – All back zip and long leg ION wetsuits come with detachable velcro Leg_Loops and plush panels above the ankle. The loops can be wrapped tightly around the ankle to prevent water from rushing into the suit. To avoid loosing the Leg_Loops whilst on the water, they come with a unique construction of extra strong velcro. If you choose not to use the velcro loops, they can be easily removed by hand. Front zip models don’t have the plush panel, but do come with Leg_Loops attached to the suit. Drain_Holes – Whenever two flaps overlap there is a chance that water can accumulate. In order to combat this we assure that quick water release is provided when needed, so Drain_Holes are secured in place from the inside and won’t expand. Sunglass_Loop – A small webbing loop on the neck of ION wetsuits and tops to attach the safety line of ION sunglasses. Internal Key_Pocket – It’s been an ongoing discussion if this feature is needed at all, but we’ve decided to keep it and it’s placed on the inside of the suit. Please note, only store water resistant keys in order to avoid any damage. Grind_Tex – Highly abrasion resistant. Great strength against tearing. Primarily used on knee panels at the Performance level. We would recommend using a Signed For service. Order Mon-Fri before 4pm are usually dispatched same day. It is totally secure and very easy to use.
