ION wetsuits are categorized into three main product lines:

  3. The CAPTURE line is dedicated to kids and teens, offering them suitable wetsuits for their adventures.

Within the SEEK and AMAZE lines, there are three levels of wetsuits:

  • Amp: The Amp level prioritizes lightweight construction and unmatched flexibility. With features like Max_Flex in the shoulder and arm areas, these wetsuits offer maximum freedom of movement while retaining high levels of warmth.
  • Core: The Core level suits strike a perfect balance between performance and affordability. They incorporate selected features from higher-level wetsuits while maintaining a great price-performance ratio.

Additionally, ION offers comfortable and durable wetsuits for beginners and minimalists in the Element line.

ION wetsuits offer different entry or zipper options, including front zip, back zip, and no zip, allowing you to choose according to your preference.

Frequently asked questions

How do I choose the right wetsuit?

Choosing the perfect wetsuit involves considering your primary use and personal preferences. Ask yourself the following questions:

  • Where will I mainly use the wetsuit?
  • How sensitive am I to cold?
  • What are the water and air temperatures like in my primary location of use?

Once you have a clear understanding of these factors, you can determine the appropriate thickness of the wetsuit. However, keep in mind that thickness alone doesn't solely determine warmth; the type of lining used also contributes to heat retention.

Consider the type of entry or zip you prefer, and refer to the size chart to ensure a proper fit. It is crucial that your wetsuit fits well, and it is recommended to try it on in-store for a more accurate assessment.

How thick should my wetsuit be?

Determining the necessary thickness for a wetsuit depends on several factors and varies from person to person. For most northern European countries, a 4/3 or 5/4 wetsuit is recommended for autumn, a 5/4 wetsuit for winter, and a 5/4 wetsuit with a separate hood or even a 6/5 wetsuit with an integrated hood for extremely cold days.

Apart from personal sensitivity to cold, air and water temperatures play a significant role. The frequency of water activity and exposure to wind also impact the perception of cold. Drysuits, such as ION Fuse Drysuits, are ideal for kiteboarding, wing foiling, windsurfing, and SUP in freezing temperatures.

The inner lining of the neoprene also contributes to thermal insulation. ION's premium models, such as SEEK Select (for men) and Amaze Select (for women), feature an inside lining coated with 100% Graphene, providing 20% more warmth. This represents a significant advancement in wetsuit technology, making water sports in colder conditions more appealing with the addition of Graphene_Plush.

Even in warmer environments, a high-quality lining plays a crucial role. A relatively thin wetsuit with a superior lining can provide the same level of warmth as a thicker suit without thermal lining. For example, a 4/3 mm ION SEEK Select wetsuit with Graphene Plush inside lining offers comparable warmth to an average 5/4 mm wetsuit. Opting for a thinner wetsuit with better flexibility can provide greater comfort while maintaining comparable costs.

What should I consider in terms of fit?

A well-fitting wetsuit should feel like a second skin. Initially, trying on a wetsuit might be challenging, but it's crucial to refer to the manufacturer's size charts. A wetsuit should fit snugly without being loose or excessively tight.

Ensure that the wetsuit allows for unrestricted movements during surfing, kiteboarding, or windsurfing. It should not restrict your breathing either. Keep in mind that a wetsuit will adapt to your body shape after a few uses, making entry easier over time.

A loose-fitting wetsuit will allow water to enter, compromising its effectiveness. Additionally, excessively loose wetsuits can cause discomfort and chafing.

The ideal fit strikes a balance between sufficient warmth and maximum mobility. Remember that "thicker is not always better" as it's important to maintain freedom of movement while enjoying water sports.

What are the different types of neoprene?

  1. Petroleum-based neoprene: This type is being used less and less due to environmental concerns.
  2. Limestone neoprene: Most manufacturers in the water sports industry, including ION, primarily use limestone neoprene. It offers good performance and is more environmentally friendly than petroleum-based neoprene.
  3. Yulex neoprene: Yulex is the most environmentally friendly alternative, but it is less flexible and tends to be more expensive.
