The Seek Amp 6/5 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. To improve flexibility in this crucial area, ION uses a new rhombus-shaped outside lining. 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.

Seek Amp Backzip models feature additional protection pads at the shins.


Max Flex

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 thru small channels. This increases the evaporation of water and reduces drying time.

Plasma Plush 2.0

Premium lining offering the best of 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 in between sessions.

Eco Stretch (black color way)

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

Hot Stuff 2.0 lining comes with 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 Stuff

Smooth inside lining for a comfortable feeling on bare skin. Despite its snuggly appearance it proves to be really hard core when it comes to the interior's superb flexible characteristics.

Maki Tape 2.0

Highly elastic neoprene tape reinforces the seams on the lower body and commonly stressed cuff area from the inside.

Sweep Cut

Seam-free shoulder design for increased paddle reach and shoulder rotation.

Seam Reinforcement

All stress points are reinforced and secured by melco tape from the inside to ensure a longer lifespan of the seams.

Fused Edges

Embossed sleeve and leg ends for a sleeker and more durable finish.

Water Gate

Extra panel on the inside that seals off the back zipper and acts as a barrier preventing water from rushing into the wetsuit.

Seal Tite

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.

Drain Holes

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.

Leg Loops

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.

Sunglasses Loop

A small webbing loop on the neck of wetsuits and tops to attach the safety line of ION sunglasses.

Crash Pads

The extra padding on the shins provides improved protection from impact.


I Foam

I Foam is an extreme 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.

Bellissima muta

Presa al volo perchè nella rara misura XLS, mentre la mia precedente Ion Onyx 5/5 L di oltre dieci anni fa mi stringeva ormai troppo su spalle e collo.
La muta, di colore nero, si presenta molto bene e molto curata, senza fronzoli come il nastro colato sulle cuciture che sulla Onyx nel tempo si sono rotte e hanno cominciato a cadere a pezzettini, non molto ecologico pur non causando problemi alla muta, idem con le scritte in rilievo gialle, tolte; ecco semmai così perde un po' di brio grafico, ma è secondario.
Il materiale sembra molto più resistente e idrorepellente, e penso quindi meno propenso a trattenere l'acqua rispetto al bifoderato della Onyx, anche se per converso diventa più forte meno facile da prendere con le mani, adesso stringe un po' sugli avambracci, ma mi assicurano che si mollerà in acqua e col primo uso.
Il collettino internodella Onyx è stato esteso ad una vera e propria maglia sottomuta integrata sulla schiena, che dovrebbe portare fuori l'acqua che entra verso gli appositi forellini in basso, ingegnoso.
Lodevole il chiaro intento di migliorare i pochi punti "deboli" della Onyx. Poi ovviamente il tempo e la prova sul campo diranno.
