All progressive kiters, windsurfers and wakeboarders who are simply looking for a comfortable quality product with a reasonable price / performance ratio. Features: S-Type Neoprene: Completely made of Sheicos S-Type neoprene which is one of the most elastic neoprene types on the market. Its also very warm and lightweight due to its specific cell structure. Limestone Neoprene: Super-Friendly to the environment. ION have retreated from the oil based neoprene production process. Instead, ION use a process which relies on Limestone as a raw material. Limestone largely consists of calcium carbide, which is the main ingredient for all types of neoprene. Calcium carbide is then mixed together with other components to create specific neoprene densities and structures to serve the needs of the designers. Fully Glued Blind-Stitch Water Sealing: The edges of the neoprene panels are covered with a highly adhesive, UV resistant contact glue which needs to dry for a few minutes. Then the glue is applied a second time to make it more sticky. Once the corresponding parts of the neoprene edges are put together by hand and then firmly squeezed with an electric pressing tool cm by cm to achieve the high tearing strength, the seams are stitched on the inside with a special blind-stitch sewing machine. A curved needle pokes through the neoprene layer and applies an elastic seam on the outside. By using this technique, the seam is highly tear proof, elastic and completely watertight and provides insulation and comfort. Water Gate Batwing Panel: An extra neoprene layer behind the zipper. If water penetrates the suit, the watergate will guide it out through the water drain hole. Gate Keeper Easy Entry: A Velcro patch on the upper part of the batwing makes it possible to fix the batwing on the neck closure. This prevents the Water Gate back panel from rolling up inside and helps you grabbing it without the help of an assisting buddy. The Velcro patches of the batwing and neck closure are now provided with a red label, so you can easily see how to close it. Seam Reinforcements: Crucial stress points are reinforced either with tape on the inside or rubber logo patches on the outside. Velcro Fix Neck: A small Velcro patch on the outside of the closure flap can quickly be fixed on the leg open for easy entry or exit. Drainholes for water release: Water which enters through the back zipper can leak out easily and keep the back area dry. These holes are also in the calves which prevent any water from getting stuck in the legs like a bubble. Detachable Velcro Leg Loops: For an even tighter seal. If needed the velcro loop avoids any intrusion of water by perfect adjustment. In the unlikely case that the loop releases on the water it can not get lost due to its unique construction. Supratex reinforcement on the knees: Protection panels on the knees with flex zones for bending and highest abrasion resistance. Sunglasses Loop: Small webbing loop on the neck of the wetsuit to attach your sunglasses. A great feature when in choppy conditions. Contour Cut: To improve mobility and comfort, all ion wetsuits now come with a contour cut. It enhances the flexibility in the collar, wrist, ellbow, instep and the hollow of the knee.
