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.
Ultra slim outside sealing technology for a long lasting life span providing more elasticity, freedom of movement and comfort. Contrary to most other widely used seam-sealing technologies, the Power_Seam can be coloured, adding a special touch and unique look to all ION Select models.
Commonly seen in Triathlon or Vintage Surf suits, the super slick surface allows the water drops to glide off immediately. This not only keeps the suit light, but also prevents evaporative heat loss. especially at the torso thus protecting your kidneys for a longer lasting session.

The Water_Gate construction has been updated! With an additional seam to allow a more body-specific fit around the neck, it provides superb water resistant sealing. The Water_Gate 3D is used in all Select Level and AMP Level models.
All stress points are reinforced and secured from the inside with Melco tape for increased lifespan. If you accidentally left the suit in the trunk of your car on a hot day, they can start to peel off. Don't panic! Gently use an iron over the affected area as the glue is activated by heat.
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 back zip and long leg ION wetsuits come with detachable velcro Leg_Loops and plush panels above the ankle. The loops can be wrapped tightly around the ankle to prevent water from rushing into the suit. To avoid loosing the Leg_Loops whilst on the water, they come with a unique construction of extra strong velcro. If you choose not to use the velcro loops, they can be easily removed by hand. Front zip models don't have the plush panel, but do come with Leg_Loops attached to the suit.
Whenever two flaps overlap there is a chance that water can accumulate. In order to combat this we assure that quick water release is provided when needed, so Drain_Holes are secured in place from the inside and won't expand.
A small webbing loop on the neck of ION wetsuits and tops to attach the safety line of ION sunglasses.
It's been an ongoing discussion if this feature is needed at all, but we've decided to keep it and it's placed on the inside of the suit. Please note, only store water resistant keys in order to avoid any damage.

Additional Neoprene pads provide protection against pressure and impact which can often cause injury to sensitive and vulnerable parts of the body (shins) The number of pads vary according to the suit and each pad consists of a special high density K_Type Neoprene foam to dampen the force of impact.
