Toasty Warm: Quick drying Plasma_Plush lining and Seal_Tite feature.
Quick-Dry: Water-repellent fabric at torso and enlarged inside quick-dry lining
Optimum Flex: Limitless movement thanks to the Sweep_Cut and Single_Seam legs.
Power_Seam: Ultra slim outside sealing technology for a long lasting life span
The main feature of the SELECT line is warmth! For 2018 we extended ION's toasty warm Plasma_Plush into the lower legs, making the new collection even warmer. The quick-dry characteristics of the Plasma_Plush prevent water from accumulating at the very end of the legs whilst hanging up to dry and any consequent stretching of the material over time.
Riders who push the boundaries rely on ultimate freedom of movement and high-tech performance to support their ambitious style.

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!
Ultra slim outside sealing technology for a long lasting life span providing more elasticity, freedom of movement and comfort than regular sealings.

Seam-free shoulder design for increased paddle reach and shoulder rotation.
The cord is used to tighten the suit at the shoulder. The high load on this small detail can lead to unavoidable damage. Now it can be easily replaced. This is ION's answer to planned product obsolescence that occurs in many other industries.
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.
