Increase your performance with the Strike Amp's perfect composition between stretch and warmth. The secret for optimal heat retention lies in ION's proven flexible inside lining called Hot Stuff 2.0 in combination with toasty warm Plasma Plush 2.0. I foam neoprene, which enhances flexibility even further, while Drygrid reduces the overall weight due to less water absorption. In spots without thermo lining, super soft Silk Stuff increases next-to-skin comfort to the max. The result: Your perfect everyday wetsuit, no matter which conditions you will face today. Thanks to the front zip design, there's nothing to interfere with your paddle power.
Drygrid:Leave the water in its rightful place down below, not in your wetsuit – Drygrid absorbs up to 30% less water. As a result, the wetsuit is lighter and cooling by evaporation is reduced. Last but not least the look of the Drygrid contributes to the sophisticated detailing.
Plasma Plush 2.0:Premium lining offering the best of heat retention and stretch. The high pile fabric traps air for snuggly warmth and insulation while the vertically aligned channel structure transports moisture away quickly – for a dry suit after your break in between sessions.
Hot Stuff 2.0:The new Hot Stuff 2.0 comes with a plushier feel due to bigger loops. It is the most stretchy thermo lining in our range.
Silk Stuff:Smooth inside lining for a comfortable feeling on bare skin. Despite its snuggly appearance it proves to be really hard core when it comes to the interior's superb flexible characteristics.
Maki Tape 2.0:Highly elastic neoprene tape reinforces the seams on the lower body and commonly stressed cuff area from the inside
I Foam:The new I Foam is replacing the V Foam and offers more stretch than ever!
Sweep Cut:Seam-free shoulder design for increased paddle reach and shoulder rotation.
Cordlock:Let's get down to the nitty-gritty details. A soft cord lock for front zip wetsuits that can be adjusted with only one hand. Additionally, it comes in an inconspicuous fashion that won't bother you while riding.
Seam Reinforcement:All stress points are reinforced and secured by melco tape from the inside to ensure a longer lifespan of the seams.
Fused Edges on sleeve and leg ends:Embossed sleeve and leg ends for a sleeker and more durable finish.
Seal Tite:Again, this feature prevents water from rushing into the wetsuit by sealing off the cuffs and collar thanks to small rubber strips on the inside.
Drain Holes:Quick water release when needed in order to combat water accumulation inside the wetsuit. The Drain Holes are secured in place from the inside and won't expand.
Leg Loop:All ION Strike with long legs are coming with detachable velcro Leg Loops and plush panels above the ankle. The loops can be wrapped tightly around the ankle to prevent water from rushing into the suit. To avoid loosing the Leg Loops whilst on the water, they come with a unique construction of extra strong velcro. If you choose not to use the velcro loops, they can be easily removed by hand. Front zip models don't have the plush panel, but do come with Leg Loops attached to the suit.
Crash Padz:Providing the extra bit confidence you need to progress – High density K Type neoprene pads at ribs and shins protect against pressure and impacts.
Key Pocket:Enjoy the session and stop worrying about your keys – easily store them in the Key Pocket. Please note: only store water resistant keys in order to avoid any damage.
