Neoprene Technology

V4X FABRIC

A new generation of neoprene. With a unique appearance, irresistible looks and used on our highend VAPOR wetsuits. Isotropic stretch characteristics in combination with Airflex2 lining and Zodiac2 lining are giving the Vapor unbeatable stretch, durability, warmth and a unique look.

NATUREPRENE®

Our PF1 series is made out of plant based rubber derived from sources that are FCS certifed. Our certifed neoprene is laminated with recycled polyester and a lining made out of recycled PET bottles. Lamination is done with water based glue. 20% more stretch and lighter than previously.

AIRFLEX 550+ AND 300+ LIMESTONE NEOPRENE

We feature 3 types of Airflex neoprene. 300+, 500+ and 550+ stretch. Airflex neoprene is made out of limestone neoprene and by changing the formula of the foaming agents we can determine the stretch in our raw material. Laminating with different backings is determing the final flex of the panels.

DOWN AIRFLEX

Our newest fabric, water repellent and dry wicking with the feel of down and the maximum stretch of our airflex neoprene. New on our Predator and Flare wetsuits for 2020/2021 season. Softfeel and in combination with the Velvet AirFlex2 lining a unique material.

NEW NEOLIGHT HEATHER 550+

The heather fabric ads the luxury look on our Mercury and Oxygen wetsuits. Besides looks the extra yarns offer a softer, more stretch and a smooth feel to the outer lining. The two tone colorscheme also indicates the areas in which the unique TR lining is used. Now in combination with our velvet feel Airflex2 inner lining and Thermal Rebound triple layering. Nasa technology incorporated.

LIMESTONE REACH COMPLIANT

Reach Compliant; This means we have achieved to ban the use of extender oils in our neoprene sheets for a better environment. PAH neutral neoprene has improved characteristics such as weight, stretch and it prevents skin irritation that could be caused by extender oil residues or solvent containing glues and complies with the most strict rules for Restrict of Chemicals (Reach) as regards to polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons.

LIMESTONE NEOPRENE

In short, limestone neoprene is more effective, more comfortable, longer lasting and eco friendly compared to petroleum based neoprene. Limestone neoprene wetsuits are always more flexible, lighter, have exceptional thermal insulation with high stretch. This makes our wetsuits easy to take off, have less drag and increased buoyancy for increased performance in above watersports. The max elongation of our high-grade neoprene is close to 550%, while human skin stretches to around 70%. This makes it the most free moving wetsuits available.

Construction Technology

POWERSEAM (PATENTED TECHNOLOGY)

Liquid seam protection. Thin slick looking seams are triple glued and seal off the seam with a liquid rubber seal. The liquid seal reinforces the seams and prevent any water leakage. The advantage: Thin, high wear resistant, watertight, super stretch seams.

FTM TAPED SEAMS

Liquid seam protection. Thin slick looking seams are triple glued and seal off the seam with a liquid rubber seal. The liquid seal reinforces the seams and prevent any water leakage. The advantage: Thin, high wear resistant, watertight, super stretch seams.

GLUED AND BLINDSTITCHED SEAMS

Liquid seam protection. Thin slick looking seams are triple glued and seal off the seam with a liquid rubber seal. The liquid seal reinforces the seams and prevent any water leakage. The advantage: Thin, high wear resistant, watertight, super stretch seams.

Inside Technology

THERMAL REBOUND™

The 4 layer construction Thermal Rebound lining. This technology goes back to the mid 1970’s where NASA developed the thermal blankets for their manned missions into space as insulation. Since 2011 the same principle is used on all major sporting events where Athletes are draped in shiny silver blankets when they finish. This effect of survival blankest for the protection against cold conditions is now available in our neoprene wetsuits.

ZODIAC2 LINING

Zodic Jacquard velvet fleece on the inside, layered with a quick dry thermal fleece for more warmth and comfort. It absorbs the water from the skin, releases quickly and increases comfort. Recognizable because of the red glow of comfortable heat.

NEW VELVET AIRFLEX 550+ & 500+ LINING

Softer than ever before, more stretch, comfortable feel and quickdry. Another milestone in wetsuit technology. Clearly recognizable because of the purple color and the feel... smooth as velvet.
