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.
Maki_Tape is the made out of Cyber_Stretch 130% Neoprene and thus not limiting at all. At Amp Level suits, it seals every inch of each seam for incredible sealing against water without limiting stretch, wheres you'll find it in other levels at isolated areas for improved sealing or reinforcement.
Same concept as for the Ninja_Knees. A small strip is inserted between the back and the buttock panel giving your upper body freedom to rotate and more stretch for paddling.
at the legs keeps you dry single seam calf - easy entry - more flex at calf - less fragile seams and better sealing
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.
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.
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.
This improved Hot_Stuff has a wooly appearance and feels great against bare skin. The wooly knit structure in black/red colour combinations has a very good stretch.
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.
