Dry_Grid – 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.
Hot_Stuff 2.0 – Comes with a plushier feel due to larger loops that trap more air for heat insulation. It is the stretchiest thermo lining in ION’s entire range.
Silk_Stuff – Smooth inside lining for a comfortable feeling on bare skin. Despite its snuggly appearance it proves to be really hard core when it comes to the interior’s superb flexible characteristics.
I_Foam – The I_Foam is an extreme lightweight and stretchy neoprene foam. Thanks to the new foamed structure with more air trapped inside and a lower density the I_foam also contributes to heat insulation and better flexibility.
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.
Seam_Reinforcement – All stress points are reinforced and secured by melco tape from the inside to ensure a longer lifespan of the seams.
Water_Gate – Extra panel on the inside that seals off the back zipper and acts as a barrier preventing water from rushing into the wetsuit.
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 wetsuits with long legs come with detachable velcro straps (Leg_Loop). The loops can be wrapped tightly around the ankle to prevent water from rushing into the suit. To avoid losing the Leg_Loops when you’re in the water, they feature a unique, extra-strong velcro construction. If you choose not to use the velcro loops they can easily be removed by hand. Rear-zip wetsuits come with an extra-plush panel to secure the Leg_Loops even tighter.
Fused_Edges – Embossed sleeve and leg ends for a sleeker and more durable finish.
Crash_Pads – The extra padding on the shins provides improved protection from impact.
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.
Sunglasses_Loop – A small webbing loop on the neck of wetsuits and tops to attach the safety line of ION sunglasses.
Key Pocket – Enjoy the session and stop worrying about your keys. Just store them in the Key Pocket inside the wetsuit. Note: Only store waterproof keys in order to avoid any damage.
