ION Strike 5/5 Steamer Wetsuit Kiteboarding Kitesurf Kite Board

 

ION Strike 5/5 Steamer Wetsuit Kiteboarding Kitesurf Kite Board

 

ION Strike AMP Wetsuit Features:

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.

Seal Tite Wrists:

Equipped with rubber stripes at the wrists to reduce the chance of the wrists riding up as you raise your arms. The tighter and sealed fit also avoids water rushing into your arms.

Description

The ION Strike Amp represents exceptional performance especially in terms of stretch. The Ninja-Knee construction is primarily supported by the new and thinner Maki-Tape 2.0, while the Ninja-Spine between the stiffer back panel and the buttock gives freedom for upper body moment whilst protected by the harness. The supersoft mélange fabric also stands out with its unique colour combinations.

 

No matter if you go kiting, windsurfing or shred at the wakeboard cable park, this wetsuit will look great in any sport! All progressive kiters, windsurfers and wakeboarders who simply want to express their unique attitude and personality without missing out on environmental awareness and responsibility.

 

Features:

 

  • Maxi Tape - made out of Cyber-Stretch 130% Neoprene it seals every inch of each seam for incredible sealing against water without limiting stretch, whereas you'll find it in other levels at isolated areas for improved sealing or reinforcement.

  • Ninja Knees - What's the one thing a customer does at the shop? They pull at the wetsuit's arms. But hey, the legs deserve the same attention! Therefore the new Ninja_Knees feature uses the same highly elastic material used in the arm panels. The result is awesome freedom of movement while bending your knees.

  • Anti-Smell Formula:
    Sanitized® is a certified antibacterial fabric treatment to prevent bad odor from bacteria, mildew etc. in moist or sweaty environments. ION uses this proven Swiss technology as a pioneer brand in our market to fight a very unpleasant problem many people know in watersports: foul sweaty smell, skin irritations, allergies etc. caused by bacteria, germs, mildew, funghi, mold, algae and mites. Sanitized® is applied permanently to selected ION items such as premium wetsuits, Neo gloves, boots and socks. It uses silver particles to shut down bacterial cell growth, but it is strictly not based on Nano- Technology to exclude potential harms. Sanitized® is absolutely safe to your health or environment and fully complies with the strict and independent testing standards of bluesign®, Allergy UK and Oeko-Tex 100/Class I (safe for babies).

  • Ninja Spine:
    Same concept as for the Ninja Knees. A small strip is inserted between the back and the buttock panel giving your upper body freedom to rotate and more stretch for paddling.

  • Seal Tite Wrists:
    Equipped with rubber stripes at the wrists to reduce the chance of the wrists riding up as you raise your arms. The tighter and sealed fit also avoids water rushing into your arms.

  • Watergate 3D :
    With an additional seam to allow a more body-specific fit around the neck, it provides superb water resistant sealing.

  • Seam Reinforcements:
    All stress points are reinforced and secured from the inside with Melco tape for increased lifespan. If you accidentally left the suit in the trunk of your car on a hot day, they can start to peel off. Don't panic! Gently use an iron over the affected area as the glue is activated by heat.

  • Fully Glued Blind-Stitch 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.

  • Contour Cut:
    To improve flexibility and comfort, all ION wetsuits come with the ION Contour Cut. It greatly enhances flex in the collar, wrists, elbows, insteps and the back of the knees.

  • Drain Holes:

    Whenever two flaps overlap there is a chance that water can accumulate. In order to combat this ION assure that quick water release is provided when needed, so Drain Holes are secured in place from the inside and won't expand.

  • Crash Padz Protection Panels on Shin:
    Crash Padz on the shin to avoid injuries when crashing on the board edge or fin. Each Crash Pad consists of 3mm K-Type neoprene stitched on the inside. This harder neoprene absorbs any impact.

  • Internal Key Pocket:
    Placed on the inside of the suit. Please note, only store water resistant keys in order to avoid any damage.

  • Drainholes for water release - Water which enters through the back
    zipper can leak out easily and keep the back area dry. These holes are also in the calves which prevent any water from getting stuck in the legs like a bubble.

  • Hot Stuff:
    Improved Hot Stuff has a wooly appearance and feels great against bare skin. The wooly knit structure in black/red colour combinations has a very good stretch.

  • 6mm Body / 5mm Arms / Legs

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.
