ION Onyx 5/4 Steamer Wetsuit Kiteboarding Kitesurf Kite Board

 

ION Onyx Wetsuit Features:

Limestone Neoprene:
Super-Friendly to the environment. ION have retreated from the oil based neoprene production process. Instead, ION use a process which relies on Limestone as a raw material. Limestone largely consists of calcium carbide, which is the main ingredient for all types of neoprene. Calcium carbide is then mixed together with other components to create specific neoprene densities and structures to serve the needs of the designers.

S-Type Neoprene:
Completely made of Sheico’s S-Type neoprene which is one of the most elastic neoprene types on the market. It’s also very warm and lightweight due to its specific cell structure..

Fully Glued and Blind-Stitched Water Sealing:
The edges of the neoprene panels are covered with a highly adhesive, UV resistant contact glue which needs to dry for a few minutes. Then the glue is applied a second time to make it more sticky. Once the corresponding parts of the neoprene edges are put together by hand and then firmly squeezed with an electric pressing tool cm by cm to achieve the high tearing strength, the seams are stitched on the inside with a special blind-stitch sewing machine. A curved needle pokes through the neoprene layer and applies an elastic seam on the outside. By using this technique, the seam is highly tear proof, elastic and completely watertight and provides insulation and comfort.

Velcro Leg Loops:
For an even tighter seal. If needed the velcro loop avoids any intrusion of water by perfect adjustment. In the unlikely case that the loop releases on the water it can not get lost due to its unique construction. Of course the Velcro Loop can be removed easily if not needed.

How does a wetsuit work?
A wetsuit creates a barrier against the elements utilizing the insulating properties of closed cell neoprene.

 

Neoprene is a closed cell foam made up of thousands of tiny air bubbles known as cells.

 

The air within the cells creates an insulating barrier which slows down the conduction of heat and cold and allows body heat to be retained.

 

Neoprene:
The thickness of the neoprene utilized in a wetsuit will determine its warmth and flexibility.

 

A thick wetsuit provides a lot of insulation but can inhibit flexibility.

 

A thin wetsuit will be very flexible but can inhibit insulation.

 

The key is to get the right combination of warmth and flexibility so the wetsuit will not only keep you warm, but provide maximum flexibility as well.

 

What is a steamer wetsuit ?
A 'Steamer' is a wetsuit with sealed seams, usually achieved by blind stitching.

 

This stops the majority of cold water from re-entering the suit once your body has initially heated it up.

 

Winter wetsuits are steamers typically with a 5mm body and legs for warmth and 3mm arms for manoeuvrability.
