NP Mission 5/4/3 BZ Wetsuit 2018
The 2018 NP Mission back zip wetsuit provides the ultimate combination in lightweight, warmth and ﬂexibility for riders who push limits in and above the water! NP's most ﬂexible wetsuit, designed for all water use, features full Yamamoto Limestone Neoprene, Bio-Ceramic Lining, Infrared Zips, P-Skin+ Taping and our new Dri-ﬂex wafﬂe jersey.
YAMAMOTO LIMESTONE NEOPRENE
Premium Japanese limestone based neoprene that is 95% water impermeable compared to 70% for standard neoprene which allows it to absorb less water, dry faster and provides more wind chill protection. It’s unique cell structure has a 23% higher close cell ratio for added bouyancy and ﬂexibility. The cells are also evenly spaced to ﬁll up with more nitrogen gas that makes the neoprene warmer. Limestone is extracted in a much cleaner, environmentally friendly process than petroleum makes NP believe that it should be featured in all their new wetsuits.
BIO CERAMIC THERMAL LINER
Bioceramic is a material composed of a mixture of non-toxic mineral oxides such as platinum, titanium, and aluminium, added to the ﬁbre in liquid form to produce fabrics able to exploit all its properties. Additional beneﬁts of bioceramics are the antibacterial and permanent anti-odor characteristics.
NP's advanced Dri Flex knitted outer jersey is 25% lighter with 30% added ﬂex and dries in a faction of the time compared to our Apex Plus material. This dynamic wafﬂe jersey is fused with a polyester and spandex blend and combined with Yamamoto Neoprene which means that the neoprene is over 95% water impermeable. Dry Flex Material is truly Lighter, Warmer and Stretchier than any neoprene NP have produced.
P-SKIN PLUS TAPE
Now thinner & stretchier, nonstick 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.
