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.
Core riders across all watersports, but more specifically wind sports addicts who need extra protection against tailwinds and a premium suit to match their dynamic personality.

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.
