SEEK AMP HOOD 6/5
Ultimate stretch without compromising warmth for anyone who loves the feeling of unparalled mobility. The Seek Amp 6/5 Hood Front Zip features our new Max_Flex outside lining in the entire shoulder area & arms. Freedom of movement is key in this crucial area, no matter if you paddle for waves or hold on to your kite or sail. The secret for optimal heat retention lies in ION's super flexible Hot_Stuff 2.0 thermo lining throughtout the entire torso, legs, neck & head. Combined with toasty warm Plasma_Plush 2.0 on the back against wind chill & cold water won't ruin your session. On top, light & stretchy limestone neoprene insulates and adds up to flexibility thanks to its super foamy structure.
A narrow rubber strip on the cuffs of the leg and arm ends, as well as on the collar. Ensures a better sealing and prevents the material from leaking.
Max_Flex is our latest innovation in flexibility and stretch. The unique rhombus-shaped structure of this lining material allows it to be more flexible. Further does the material itself not soak up water but redistributes it on the surface thru small channels. This increases the evaporation of water and reduces drying time.
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.
ION uses recycled nylon fabric for its exterior linings. The material is sourced from nylon waste, but the best thing is that its stretch properties are just as good as conventional linings.
Hot_Stuff 2.0 lining 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.
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.
Improved version of highly elastic neoprene tape securing every inch of lower body seams and highly stressed cuff area.
I_Foam is an extreme lightweight and stretchy neoprene foam. For this season we upgraded I_foam with Oyster shell powder, replacing Limestone. This upgrade makes our I_foam more sustainable while maintaining its superior characteristics. Thanks to the foamed structure with more air trapped inside and a lower density I_foam contributes to heat insulation and better flexibility.
Seam-free shoulder design for increased paddle reach and shoulder rotation.
So let's get down to the nitty-gritty: A soft cord lock for front-zip wetsuits that can be adjusted with just one hand. It's a subtle addition that won't bother you while riding.
|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 other industries.
All stress points are reinforced and secured by melco tape from the inside to ensure a longer lifespan of the seams.
Embossed sleeve and leg ends for a sleeker and more durable finish.
In order to combat water accumulation inside the wetsuit we assure that quick water release is provided when needed. The Drain_Holes are secured in place from the inside and won't expand.
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.
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.
The Water_Barrier at the front zip opening area improves the connection between the flap and rest of the wetsuit. This silicone application prevents water from flushing into the suit hence contributing to the overall warmth properties.
