The Seek Amp 5/4 Front Zip stands for an epic stretch without compromising warmth, making it the perfect wetsuit all year round. Freedom of movement in arms and shoulders is key, no matter if you paddle or hold on to your kite or sail. ION uses a new rhombus-shaped outside lining to improve flexibility in this crucial area. It stretches easily, thanks to the unique structure. Additionally, recycled Eco_Stretch lining at the torso and legs maintains comfy stretch throughout the entire suit (black colorway only). The secret for optimal heat retention lies in ION's super flexible Hot_Stuff 2.0 thermo lining combined with toasty warm Plasma_Plush 2.0. On top, I_foam neoprene traps more air due to its foamy structure, improving heat retention and flexibility. Another feature that shelters you from icy showers is a small silicone print at the front zip opening area. It increases the connection between the flap and the rest of the wetsuit.

Max_Flex is our latest innovation in flexibility and stretch. The unique rhombus-shaped structure of this lining material allows it to be more flexible. Further does the material itself not soak up water but redistributes it on the surface through small channels. This increases the evaporation of water and reduces drying time.
Premium lining offers the best 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 between sessions.
ION uses recycled nylon fabric for its exterior linings. The material is sourced from nylon waste, but the best thing is that its stretch properties are just as good as conventional linings.
Hot_Stuff 2.0 lining has a plushier feel due to larger loops that trap more air for heat insulation. It is the stretchiest thermo lining in ION's entire range.Silk_StuffSmooth inside lining for a comfortable feeling on bare skin. Despite its snuggly appearance it proves to be really hardcore when it comes to the interior's superb flexible characteristics.
Highly elastic neoprene tape reinforces the seams on the lower body and commonly stresses the cuff area from the inside.
So let's get down to the nitty-gritty: A soft cord lock for front-zip wetsuits that can be adjusted with just one hand. It's a subtle addition that won't bother you while riding.
Seam-free shoulder design for increased paddle reach and shoulder rotation.
Replaceable Draw Cord
The cord is used to tighten the suit at the shoulder. The high load on this small detail can lead to unavoidable damage. Now it can be easily replaced. This is ION's answer to planned product obsolescence that occurs in other industries.
All stress points are reinforced and secured by Melco tape from the inside to ensure a longer lifespan of the seams.
Embossed sleeve and leg end for a sleeker and more durable finish.
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.
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.
The loops can be wrapped tightly around the ankle to prevent water from rushing into the suit. To avoid losing the Leg_Loops when you're in the water, they feature a unique, extra-strong velcro construction.
Improves the connection between boot and wetsuit. Get less water inside for better warmth.
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.
The Water_Barrier at the front zip opening area improves the connection between the flap and the rest of the wetsuit. This silicone application prevents water from flushing into the suit hence contributing to the overall warmth properties.
I_Foam is an extremely lightweight and stretchy neoprene foam. For this season we upgraded I_foam with Oyster shell powder, replacing Limestone. This upgrade makes our I_foam more sustainable while maintaining its superior characteristics. Thanks to the foamed structure with more air trapped inside and a lower density I_foam contributes to heat insulation and better flexibility.
