The new Hot_Stuff 2.0 comes with a plushier feel due to bigger loops. It is the most stretchy thermo lining in our range.
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.
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. Don’t panic! Gently use an iron over the affected area as the glue is activated by heat.
To improve flexibility and comfort, all ION wetsuits come with the Contour_Cut. It greatly enhances flex in the collar, wrists, elbows and insteps.
I A narrow rubber strip on the cuffs of the leg and arm ends, as well as on the collar. Ensures a better sealing and prevents the material from leaking.
In order to combat water accumulation inside the wetsuit we assure that quick water release is provided when needed. The Drain_Holes are secured in place from the inside and won’t expand.
All ION Strike with long legs are coming 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.
Seam-free shoulder design for increased paddle reach and shoulder rotation.
Plasma_Plush offers great heat retention, thanks to the looped fabric structure, which traps air for best insulation. Great stretch and quick drying.
Improved version of highly elastic neoprene tape securing every inch of lower body seams and highly stressed cuff area.
Enjoy the session and stop worrying about your keys. Just store them in the Key_Pocket inside the wetsuit at the backzip. Please note, only store water resistant keys in order to avoid any damage.
