Amp

ION Amp wetsuits are made fully of Cyber-Stretch 130% the most flexible lining available. They use I Foam, which is an extremely lightweight and stretchy neoprene foam. The new foam structure has more air trapped inside and a lower density. The I Foam also contributes to heat insulation and better flexibility. The Amp is finished with Drygrid which absorbs up to 30% less water and as a result, the wetsuit is lighter and cooling by evaporation is reduced. Inside, the back panel of the Amp uses Plasma Plush 2.0, a premium lining offering the best of heat retention and stretch. The high pile fabric traps air for snuggly warmth while the vertically aligned channel structure transports moisture away quickly. The front of the body and legs are lined with Hot Stuff 2.0 which provides more stretch and heat insulation as well as a more comfortable and plushier feeling. The sleeves are lined with Silk Stuff for a higher comfort level and more flexibility. The internal seams around the crotch, knees and most stressed cuff areas are all reinforced with the highly elastic neoprene Maki Tape 2.0. Seam-free shoulder construction Sweep Cut and a minimal panel design are the reasons why the Amp feels like a second skin.
