The Ion Onyx Select Semidry Hood 6/5/4 Wetsuit FZ DL 2020 from Oceasnource is all about ultimate warmth for Kiteboarding, SUP, Surfing, Wakeboarding, Windsurfing, with high-quality materials which is why it is equipped with ION's toasty warm Plasma_Plush 2.0 all the way down to the lower legs along with other heat-insulating features. On the outside, Drygrid ensures less water absorption, which increases warmth and lightweight. In spots without thermo lining, super soft Silk_Stuff increases next-to-skin comfort to the max. Thanks to the front zip design, there's nothing to interfere with your paddle power. Get ready to face the (coldest) elements.
Drygrid: Leave the water in its rightful place down below, not in your wetsuit – Drygrid absorbs up to 30% less water. As a result, the wetsuit is lighter and cooling by evaporation is reduced. Last but not least the look of the Drygrid contributes to the sophisticated detailing.
Plasma_Plush 2.0: Premium lining offering the best of heat retention and stretch. The high pile fabric traps air for snuggly warmth and insulation while the vertically aligned channel structure transports moisture away quickly – for a dry suit after your break in between sessions.
Silk_Stuff: Smooth inside lining for a comfortable feeling on bare skin. Despite its snuggly appearance it proves to be really hardcore when it comes to the interior's superb flexible characteristics.
Power_Seams: Ultra-slim outside sealing technology for a long-lasting life span providing freedom of movement and comfort wrapped in a smart package. The Power_Seams adding a special touch and unique look to all ION Select models.
I_Foam: The new I_Foam is replacing the V_Foam and offers more stretch than ever!
Maki_Tape 2.0: Highly elastic neoprene tape reinforces the seams on the lower body and commonly stressed cuff area from the inside
Sweep_Cut: Seam-free shoulder design for increased paddle reach and shoulder rotation.
Cordlock: Let's get down to the nitty-gritty details. A soft cord lock for front zip wetsuits that can be adjusted with only one hand. Additionally, it comes in an inconspicuous fashion that won't bother you while riding.
Seam_Reinforcement: All stress points are reinforced and secured by Melco tape from the inside to ensure a longer lifespan of the seams.
Fused Edges on sleeve and leg ends: Embossed sleeve and leg ends for a sleeker and more durable finish.
Knee Hollow Embossing: Less material at the knee bends increases the freedom of movement when bending them.
Elbow_Hollow: Less material at the crook of the arm increases the freedom of movement when bending the arm.
Seal_Tite: Again, this feature prevents water from rushing into the wetsuit by sealing off the cuffs and collar thanks to small rubber strips on the inside.
Drain_Holes: Quick water release when needed in order to combat water accumulation inside the wetsuit. The Drain_Holes are secured in place from the inside and won't expand.
Leg_Loop: All ION Strike with long legs are coming 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.
Key Pocket: Enjoy the session and stop worrying about your keys – easily store them in the Key_Pocket. Please note only store water resistant keys in order to avoid any damage.
Replaceable Draw Cord: 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.
