The Amaze Amp 4/3 Back 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. Thus, ION uses a minimal panel design in this area without restricting seams and stretchy I_foam neoprene. Due to its foamy structure, it traps more air. The result is good heat retention. The secret for optimal warmth lies in ION's super flexible Hot_Stuff 2.0 thermo lining throughout the arms & legs combined with toasty warm Plasma_Plush 2.0 in the back. Amaze Amp Backzip models feature additional protection pads at the shins.
11°C - 16°C 52°F - 61°F
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.
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.
Smooth 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.
Seam-free shoulder design for increased paddle reach and shoulder rotation.
All stress points are reinforced and secured by Melco tape from the inside to ensure a longer lifespan of the seams.
An extra panel on the inside seals off the back zipper and acts as a barrier preventing water from rushing into the wetsuit.
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.
Velcro patch to offer the option of attaching the Leg_loops. 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.
Embossed sleeve and leg end for a sleeker and more durable finish.Crash_PadsThe extra padding on the shins provides improved protection from impact.
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.
A small webbing loop on the neck of wetsuits and tops to attach the safety line of watersport sunglasses.
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.
