Max_Flex is our latest innovation in flexibility and stretch. The unique rhombus-shaped structure of this lining material allows it to be more flexible. Further does the material itself not soak up water but redistributes it on the surface thru small channels. This increases the evaporation of water and reduces drying time.
Thanks to the looped structure, Plasma_Plush inside lining traps more air. The result is an insulating layer for increased warmth and plushy comfort.
ION uses recycled nylon fabric for its exterior linings. The material is sourced from nylon waste, but the best thing is that its stretch properties are just as good as conventional linings.
Hot_Stuff 2.0 lining comes with a plushier feel due to larger loops that trap more air for heat insulation. It is the stretchiest thermo lining in ION’s entire range.
Smooth inside lining for a comfortable feeling on bare skin. Despite its snuggly appearance it proves to be really hard core when it comes to the interior’s superb flexible characteristics.
Improved version of highly elastic neoprene tape securing every inch of lower body seams and highly stressed cuff area.
I_Foam is an extreme lightweight and stretchy neoprene foam. For this season we upgraded I_foam with Oyster shell powder, replacing Limestone. This upgrade makes our I_foam more sustainable while maintaining its superior characteristics. Thanks to the foamed structure with more air trapped inside and a lower density I_foam contributes to heat insulation and better flexibility.
Seam-free shoulder design for increased paddle reach and shoulder rotation.
All stress points are reinforced and secured by melco tape from the inside to ensure a longer lifespan of the seams.
Embossed sleeve and leg ends for a sleeker and more durable finish.
Extra panel on the inside that seals off the back zipper and acts as a barrier preventing water from rushing into the wetsuit.
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.
Velcro patch to offer the option of attaching the Leg_loops. The loops can be wrapped tightly around the ankle to prevent water from rushing into the suit. To avoid losing the Leg_Loops when you’re in the water, they feature a unique, extra-strong velcro construction.
A small webbing loop on the neck of wetsuits and tops to attach the safety line of ION sunglasses.
Providing the extra bit confidence you need to progress – High density K_Type neoprene pads at ribs and shins protect against pressure and impacts.
