- S-Type Neoprene:
Completely made of Sheico’s S-Type neoprene which is one of the most elastic neoprene types on the market. It’s also very warm and lightweight due to its specific cell structure.
- Limestone Neoprene:
Super-Friendly to the environment. ION have retreated from the oil based neoprene production process. Instead, ION use a process which relies on Limestone as a raw material. Limestone largely consists of calcium carbide, which is the main ingredient for all types of neoprene. Calcium carbide is then mixed together with other components to create specific neoprene densities and structures to serve the needs of the designers.
- Sanitized® Treated:
No bacteria, no odour, no mildew – consistent freshness for every ride!
- Fully Glued and Blind-Stitched Water Sealing:
The edges of the neoprene panels are covered with a highly adhesive, UV resistant contact glue which needs to dry for a few minutes. Then the glue is applied a second time to make it more sticky. Once the corresponding parts of the neoprene edges are put together by hand and then firmly squeezed with an electric pressing tool cm by cm to achieve the high tearing strength, the seams are stitched on the inside with a special blind-stitch sewing machine. A curved needle pokes through the neoprene layer and applies an elastic seam on the outside. By using this technique, the seam is highly tear proof, elastic and completely watertight and provides insulation and comfort.
- Power Seam:
Super stretchy fine line seam sealing technology with even less restriction and weight.
- Segmented Sole:
Strategically positioned to enhance flexibility of the sole.
- Flex Control:
A striped print on the instep provides better stance and stability by reducing the stretch in this area.
- Sticky Traction:
Sticky grip print on insole of the boot for the best possible traction.
- Round Toe:
Designed for comfort and easy manoeuvrability.
- Duragrip Sole:
Extra durable, maximum feeling and control on your board. The twister sole is assembled out of 3 pieces for even better performance.
