The ONYX SELECT screams style with its slick colour and classic finish. The new Single Seam in the lower leg offers limitless stretch and durability. In addition, the Ninja Spine further enhances freedom of movement. The new improved chest zip offers ease of entry, while the Sweep Cut at the shoulders enhances the paddel reach. There's no trick too big or barrel too heavy for this champion suit.
Sanitized is a certified antibacterial fabric with active biocidal substance: zinc pyrithion treatment to prevent bad odor from bacteria, mildew etc. in moist or sweaty environments. This function is permanently integrated in selected ION items such as premium wetsuits, boots and shoes.
An ultra slim sealing technology on the outside for a longer lasting lifespan. This fine seam sealing provides increased elasticity, freedom of movement and comfort in one smart package. It even works in a variety of colours creating an individual and technical look for our new ION Select models.
What's the one thing prospective wetsuit customers do at the shop? Yep, you guessed it! They pull on the wetsuit's arms. Here at ION we think the legs deserve the same attention, so the new Ninja Knees feature uses the same highly elastic materials as used in the arm panels. The result is astonishing with awesome freedom of movement, especially when bending the knees.
By mimicking the concept of the Ninja Knees, we deliver the same freedom of movement to places we think it's necessary. By incorporating a small striped insert between the back and the buttock panels, more flexibility is provided for rotation and stretch.
The successor of our renowned Helio_plush, its intention is to maximise heat retention.
* Looped fabric structure traps air for outstanding insulation
* Great stretch
* Quick to dry thanks to the woven material in the channel structure.
* Available only in Select level.
In order to improve the paddle reach of our Onyx suits, we've changed the construction and excluded the seam with runs across the upper back. The results are amazing! Get ready for unhindered sessions guaranteed to up your stoke!
An exceptional abrasion resistant rubber protection, printed onto the knee panels without hindering flexibility.
All stress points that come under a lot of force are reinforced with either Melco_Tape on the inside seams, or rubber logo patches on the outside of the suit to prevent ripping.
SEAL TITE (COLLAR)
This single layer collar construction, provides perfect water sealing and outstanding comfort. The super smooth Glide Skin on the inside of the collar prevents skin irritations and seals the neck perfectly without choking. On the outside, an additional rubber like stripe is added on the collar rim to reduce water intrusion, whilst the higher collar protects against cold water and windchill.
SEAL TITE (WRIST/ANKLE)
A rubber like stripe print is provided around the inside of the wrists and ankles. This results in a tighter sealed fit which stops water from rushing into your suit and loosening of material around these areas.
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.
All wetsuits that have the Water Gate Plus batwing panels have small holes in the lower back. This keeps the back area dry by allowing the water which has leaked in through the back zip to drain out. Drain Holes are also placed in the calf area to prevent water from getting stuck in a 'bubble' like fashion. In addition to this, ION front zip wetsuits also have Drain Holes in the chest and back panels.
No need to panic! All ION wetsuits are equipped with a clever key pocket, inside of which is an elasticated attachment. Depending on the model of the suit, this feature can be found on the calf, arm or other area. *Please note. Only store water resistant keys in order to avoid any damage.
Only used in the SELECT line.
* Technical appearance due to textured surface.
* CYBER_STRETCH 130% properties.
