Waterproof stretch taping (50%): critical areas
A neoprene taping is positioned on the critical seams of the suit. This prevents water from coming through the seams on critical points of the human body.
GBS (Glued Blind Stitched)
Stitching method whereby the panels are first glued together and then only stitched halfway through the fabric instead of fully perforating it, which makes the seams waterproof.
An EVA padding to protect your shins from board impacts.
Glide skin neck construction
The reduced thickness of the neck construction makes it easier for the neoprene to follow the curves of the neck with less pressure. The neoprene feels like a second skin, while the glideskin inner lining enables an excellent water closure.
The kneepads are made of a 4way Super-tex fabric. This is a durable fabric especially designed for protection.
Velcro ankle closure straps (included)
Velcro ankle straps to tighten the leg cuffs.
Non slip cuffs
The cuff is designed to limit the water entry and keep the sleeve in place.
Overhead backup shield
A neoprene back panel with collar, prevents water from entering through the zipper and neck.
Soft Velcro piece attachment on the inside of the suit to fix your collar tag. This will prevent damaging the inner lining.
External neoprene key pocket, positioned on the lower leg of the suit.
Perforated neoprene that allows water to exit the suit, preventing the leg cuffs from filling up with water.
The B-ZIP is the classic wetsuit closure, due to the wide zipper opening on the back the entry is very easy. Depending on the model the zipper is often double lined to prevent water entry through the zipper.
