Two years ago ION developed a brand-new design concept for getting into the nozip wetsuits which is still absolutely unique in the industry. In 2018 the STRIKE AMP NOZIP starts its second season, offering our Strike customers a fully double lined version of the Strike Amp and all its features yet without any zip for maximum freedom of movement.
Maki Tape 2.0:
Improved version of highly elastic neoprene tape securing every inch of lower body seams and highly stressed cuff area,Ninja Knee:"What’s the most common thing a customer does in the shop?" They pull on the arms of the wetsuit to test its elasticity. But hey, the stretch in the legs is equally as important! Therefore the new Ninja Knees feature uses the same highly elastic material that is used in the arm and shoulder panels. The result is an amazing freedom of movement for your legs and knees.,Water Gate 3D:The Water Gate construction has been updated! With an additional seam to allow a more body-specific fit around the neck, it provides superb water resistant sealing. The Water Gate 3D is used in all Select Level and AMP Level models
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.
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.
at the legs keeps you dry single seam calf - easy entry - more flex at calf - less fragile seams and better sealing
Whenever two flaps overlap there is a chance that water can accumulate. In order to combat this we assure that quick water release is provided when needed, so Drain Holes are secured in place from the inside and won't expand.
All back zip and long leg ION wetsuits come 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.

Internal Key Pocket:
It's been an ongoing discussion if this feature is needed at all, but we've decided to keep it and it's placed on the inside of the suit. Please note, only store water resistant keys in order to avoid any damage. FRONTZIP - Placed on the chest underneath the over head flap.,Revised Opening
