The Seek Select 5/4 Front Zip combines high-tech materials for ultimate warmth and stretch. ION’s premium wetsuit line features Graphene Lining – an incredible heat conductor that makes sure you stay warm on the water. Only high-quality materials were used to make the Seek Select the most progressive wetsuit without compromises. Made to explore the toughest conditions, ION added Graphene_Plush throughout the torso and legs. Hot_Stuff 2.0 lining provides additional warmth at the arms and shoulders. To increase flexibility and comfort in this crucial area, ION uses a new rhombus-shaped outside lining that stretches easily, thanks to its unique structure. Another feature that shelters you from icy showers is a small silicone print at the front zip opening area. It increases the connection between the flap and the rest of the wetsuit. Sealed and reinforced seams prolong the lifetime of this premium suit, making it sturdier and more robust against wear and tear.
Seek Select 5/4 Front Zip
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.;Graphene_Plush:Graphene is an impossibly light, strong and heat-conducting material. ION integrated this revolutionary material into it’s new inner lining – with the highest concentration you’ll find in any wetsuit on the market. The result is up to 20% more warmth compared to ION’s Plasma_Plush 2.0 lining. Also, Graphene_Plush guarantees incredible drying times for your wetsuit, making sure it’s always nice and comfy.;Max_Flex: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.;Hot_Stuff 2.0: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.;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.;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: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.;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:Embossed sleeve and leg ends for a sleeker and more durable finish.;Knee_Hollow embossing:Increased freedom of movement;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.;Separate 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.;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 other industries.;Novaskin;Water_Barrier: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.;I_Foam: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.
