Seek Select 5/4 Back Zip - 773 deep-sea
The Seek Select 5/4 Back Zip combines high-tech materials for ultimate warmth and stretch. ION's premium wetsuit line features Graphene Lining - an incredible heat insulator that makes sure you stay warm on the water. Only high-quality materials were used to make the Seek Select the most progressive wetsuit without compromises. A minimalistic panel design allows for limitless freedom of movement while sealed seams prolong the lifetime. Made to explore the toughest conditions, ION added Graphene_Plush throughout the torso and legs. Hot_Stuff 2.0 lining provides additional warmth at the arms and shoulders. To increase flexibility and comfort in this crucial area, ION uses a new rhombus-shaped outside lining that stretches easily, thanks to its unique structure. Seek Select Backzip models feature additional protection pads at the shins.

Dry_Grid
Leave the water in its rightful place down below, not in your wetsuit – Drygrid absorbs up to 30% less water. As a result, the wetsuit is lighter and cooling by evaporation is reduced. Last but not least the look of the Drygrid contributes to the sophisticated detailing.
Graphene_Plush

Graphene is an impossibly light, strong and heat-conducting material. ION integrated this revolutionary material into it's new inner lining – with the highest concentration you'll find in any wetsuit on the market. The result is up to 20% more warmth compared to ION's Plasma_Plush 2.0 lining. Also, Graphene_Plush guarantees incredible drying times for your wetsuit, making sure it's always nice and comfy.

Max_Flex

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. Furthermore, the material doesn't soak up water but redistributes it through small channels. This increases the evaporation of water and reduces drying time.

Hot_Stuff 2.0

The Hot_Stuff 2.0 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.

Power_Seams

Ultra slim outside sealing technology for a long lasting life span providing freedom of movement and comfort wrapped in a smart package. The Power_Seams adding a special touch and unique look to all ION Select models.

Maki_Tape 2.0
Highly elastic neoprene tape reinforces the seams on the lower body and commonly stressed cuff area from the inside.
Sweep_Cut
Seam-free shoulder design for increased paddle reach and shoulder rotation.
Fused Edges

Embossed sleeve and leg ends for a sleeker and more durable finish.

Knee Hollow Embossing

Less material at the knee bends increases the freedom of movement when bending them.

Elbow_Hollow
Less material at the crook of the arm increases the freedom of movement when bending the arm.
Water_Gate

Extra panel on the inside that seals off the back zipper and acts as a barrier preventing water from rushing into the wetsuit.

Seal_Tite
Again, this feature prevents water from rushing into the wetsuit by sealing off the cuffs and collar thanks to small rubber strips on the inside.
Drain_Holes
Quick water release when needed in order to combat water accumulation inside the wetsuit. The Drain_Holes are secured in place from the inside and won't expand.
Leg_Loops

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.

Sunglasses_Loop

A small webbing loop on the neck of wetsuits and tops to attach the safety line of watersport sunglasses.

Crash_Pads
The extra padding on the shins provides improved protection from impact.
Novaskin
Seam_Reinforcement

All stress points are reinforced and secured by melco tape from the inside to ensure a longer lifespan of the seams.

I_Foam

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.

Quote Marc Paré

»The Seek Select is my go-to wetsuit for the Northern Europe end of Summer/beginning of Autumn weather. What I love about it, is that with the Graphene Technology I can use a 4/3 wetsuit while others are having a hard time on a 5/4 and I can still keep the freedom and stretch of a thinner wetsuit while having the warmth of a thicker wetsuit. The back zip feature makes it extremely easy to go in and out of it!«
