TECHNOLOGY NEOPRENE MATERIALS

High stretch outer jersey

Apex-Flex Our top-of-the-line open celled neoprene that is laminated with an abrasion resistant outer jersey and a four-way stretch inner. The Apex Lite core is infused with 20% more microscopic air bubbles than traditional neoprene making it super-stretchy and lightweight.

Stretch inner lining

Apex Lite Core

Closed cell with Yamamoto SCS Nano coating

Matrix S5 Limestone based S5 with the addition of a 3D matrix of air chambers that trap heat and increases buoyancy and flexibility. Air pockets insulate the body the way double-paned windows insulate a house. The end result is a warmer and lighter suit without adding thickness.

3D matrix of air chambers

Closed cell with Yamamoto SCS Nano coating

S5 Limestone based neoprene from Yamamoto, Japan. This smooth closed cell neoprene has a unique hydrophobic coating that makes it 95% water permeable compared to 70% for standard neoprene. As a result, it sheds off more water, quicker. S5 also provides maximum wind chill protection with a 23% higher closed-cell ratio than standard neoprene.

Closed cell with micro emboss texture

Apex-Mesh Closed-cell neoprene with a waterproof, rubbery texture that cuts down wind-chill. The Apex Lite core is infused with 20% more microscopic air bubbles than traditional neoprene making it lighter. The unsealed inner side is laminated with a super-stretch jersey for maximum flexibility.

INSULATION

Fireline

Fireline is an exclusive, new ultra-warm, feather-light and stretchy insulation layer. Consisting of brushed, quick-dry polypropylene lines knitted over jersey, it feels soft and warm to touch. The brushed surface absorbs moisture which is then heated by your body creating a warming, greenhouse effect inside the suit.

Heatlock

An ultra-lightweight inner lining comprised of a series of tubular, hollow yarns. Heatlock effectively traps and stores body heat within the cavity of the yarn, keeping you warmer and drier.

Hotcell

Bamboo Charcoal

Vertical Back Zipper

Horizontal Front Zipper

FLX Zone

Flatlock

Lightweight, quick drying polypropylene insulation. The cellular structure traps an insulating layer of warm water next to the skin, keeping the core temperature up.

Bamboo Charcoal fibers are woven into our wetsuit lining for their anti-odor and antibacterial, warming and energizing properties.

ENTRY SYSTEMS

E4 Entry

A solid, dry seal. Pullover bib with a comfortable rollneck seal that prevents water from entering through the neck opening and back zipper.

E3 Entry

Pull-over bib that prevents water from entering through the back.

Heavy-duty, double tooth YKK zipper to minimize water entry. With extended, easy-grab lanyard.

Heavy-duty, double tooth YKK zipper with a magnetic lock closure and elastic fastener that minimise water entry.

SEAMS

P-Skin

P-Skin is a thin, stretchy, non-stick polyurethane seam-sealant that is applied to seams for maximum waterproofness. It’s stretchier and thinner than the liquid seam often seen on other wetsuits. P-Skin is machine applied so it allows for a much neater finish than liquid seam.

Glued And Blindstitched (GBL)

An efficient, watertight seam created through a triple gluing process in conjunction with a blind stitch that does not fully penetrate the rubber. The technique allows precise curved seams and facilitates a snug, anatomically correct fit.

High stretch forward and lateral extension panels allow for natural, unrestricted movement.

A strong durable self-locking stitch that is comfortable against the skin. The flatlock seam is water permeable implying it is generally used in warm water suits and tops.

EXTRAS

Aquavents

Armortex Kneepads

Griplock Wrists

Ankle Cinch Loop

Detachable Ankle Cinches

Velcro Attachment For Zipper Pull

Key Pocket With Wax Comb

SCS Neck Seal

A water venting system in the ankles that releases water caught in the suit.

Tightens around the ankles to prevent water from entering.

A highly durable, abrasion resistant, 4-way stretch material.

To avoid zip pull from flapping while riding.

Grippy silicone seal to prevent movement and water flushing in.

A pocket with elastic loop to secure your keys and wax comb.

Keeps ankle cinches in place to prevent water from entering.

Smooth skin neoprene forms a tight seal around the neck with maximum comfort.

FEATURES 360째 Power Strap

Neoprene Padded Edges

3D Shaped EVA Foam Inner

Neoprene padded edges allow for greater comfort in all conditions, especially freestyle.

Used on the inside of harnesses for impact and vibration resistance with very low water absorption. The unique embossed pattern is designed to perfectly fit the core while preventing the harness from riding up or twisting.

Non-Water-Absorbent PU Outer

Back Base Support System

3D Shaped Neoprene Foam Inner

Our unique PU outer fabric is not only highly durable but also repels water keeping the harness lightweight even after long hours on the water.

An ergonomically designed PE board insert adds additional support and stability for optimal comfort and protection.

Similar to EVA foam, but featuring an outer lining of jersey, which provides a comfortable layering between your body and harness. Recommended when a top/wetsuit is not used.

360째 strap made from highly elasticised fabric that adapts to body shape providing additional core support.

S1 SPREADER BAR Designed by men. Built by machines.

Introducing the S1 – world’s first spreader bar constructed entirely out of forged aluminium. To design the ultimate harness we started by looking at the spreader bar (the most essential part of a harness), the link between you and your equipment. Working closely with pro riders, our design team explored numerous material and construction combinations, finally settling on a forged aluminium architecture for best strength and weight balance and anti-corrosion properties. Stronger and lighter than any other spreader bar available, the S1’s unique shape allows for an even load distribution. A smooth finish with no sharp edges completes the unique design. Available in both standard and EZ Release constructions.

EZ Release

Windsurfing Hook

Kite Hook

• Straight and narrow hook for maximum stability at high speeds • Angle designed for easy hooking and unhooking in wave sailing • Three attachment points to the spreader bar for maximum strength and stability

• Rounded shape with a deep curve allows the chicken loop to hook securely reducing the chance of accidental unhooking • Three attachment points to the spreader bar for maximum strength and stability • Compatible with most chicken loops and security pins
