This season is coming with new features and trends in wetsuit collections. Let’s explore the wetsuit news for this winter.
Autumn is here and we are already looking forward to the winter and the awesome swells coming with it. Also, we are waiting for the new features and the renewed surf equipment that is coming to the market. In this case, we are going to focus on wetsuits, which are essential for winter surfing, unless you’re craziest enough to die of hypothermia. New trends are being adapted to the evolution and needs of surf. We have modern equipment that improves the properties of wetsuit, such as elasticity or warmth. So, let’s explore the market to see the wetsuit news for this winter.
Brands are investing a lot of effort to improve two basic characteristics of wetsuit, which are very important for winter surfers: warmth and elasticity. Two properties that have been improved for the season, as we see below.
The popular mid-range Rip Curl wetsuit has been renewed this season and now it has two variants. The first one is focused on heat retention, changing the manufactured neoprene to the elastic E5, a high-range wetsuit material. The Rip Curl Dawn Patrol Performance is a very elastic and light wetsuit.
This new version of Infiniti has surprised the entire industry for its innovations. Created with a new neoprene (Channel Flex) that allows extra elasticity, new Radiant Rebound fibers inside to increase warm and Tape Fusion X sealed to make the suit more dryer. The composition is petroleum derivatives free.
Best 2018 wetsuit, according to SIMA Awards, returns this year with some new features. Internal sealing with TBX3 tape to increase warmth, maintaining elasticity.
Billabong Carbon Graphene
This is not a wetsuit, but the new technology that Billabong is including in almost all its wetsuits for this year. The main change is the new graphene fibers, increasing the inner warmth. One of the most top Billabong wetsuits that uses this echnology is the Furnace Comp.
These are some wetsuit news of big surf brands. But there are more! Technology in surf industry is constantly evolving, improving the experience of catching waves for any condition. Either on a sunny day at Loredo Beach, as in a extreme condition situation.
