All ION Wetsuits use the new Aqua-α ™ technology. Aqua-α ™ is a solvent-free and completely water-based glue. We also use dope dye, which is great for the workers at the factory as there is nearly no bad smell from the glue. The difference is huge. A good step for the people behind all the great wetsuits!
Improved version of highly elastic neoprene tape securing every inch of lower body seams and highly stressed cuff area
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.
at the legs keeps you dry single seam calf - easy entry - more flex at calf - less fragile seams and better sealing
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.
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. FRONTZIP - Placed on the chest underneath the over head flap.
What's the one thing prospective wetsuit customers do at the shop? Yep, you guessed it! They pull on the wetsuit's arms. Here at ION we think the legs deserve the same attention, so the new Ninja_Knees feature uses the same highly elastic materials as used in the arm panels. The result is astonishing with awesome freedom of movement, especially when bending the knees.
