Duraskin 39 X (DS 39 X) technology combines high-stretch Yamamoto 39 neoprene, Duraskin outer fabric, and Thermal X inner lining. The <br> outer fabric offers great insulation due to its fast-drying properties, and it is very resistant to abrasion from equipment, such as your surfboard. The high-performance inner lining retains your body’s heat <br> from surfing, maintaining your body temperature and allowing you to enjoy the waves for longer. This combination results in maximum flexibility in the torso area, which requires 50% less force to stretch than conventional neoprene.
GBS (Glued Blind Stitch) sealed seams prevent water from entering the wetsuit. The glue that joins the panels makes them completely watertight, keeping the maximum elasticity properties.
Hydrolite technology makes the wetsuit easier to remove during transitions. Its compressive properties also improve the wetsuits's seal in areas where water may be able to enter, such as in the arms, legs and neck, improving the wetsuit's overall thermal insulation.
A combination of different technologies prevents water from entering the wetsuit, improving thermal insulation and comfort for surfing. The neoprene panels are sewn together and reinforced with adhesive and inner taping in order to seal the seams. Smoothskin technology is also used in the neck and forearms, which clings to the skin, sealing the wetsuit completely.
This high-performance inner lining retains heat more efficiently than<br> other conventional inner fabrics. It is also comfortable and soft to the<br> touch.
Laser cutting in the neck area combined with the Hydrolite inner lining allows the wetsuit to seal to the body and prevents chafing. This combination and seal prevent water from flowing inside the suit, improving both thermal insulation and hydrodynamics for the swimmer.
8mm YKK zippers are high-performance and high-durability components. The durability of the zipper will help your suit last for a long service life, as well as prevent water from getting into the wetsuit during your surfing sessions.
