YAMAMOTO LIMESTONE NEOPRENE
Premium Japanese limestone based neoprene that is 95% water impermeable compared to 70% for standard neoprene which allows it to absorb less water, dry faster and provides more wind chill protection. It’s unique cell structure has a 23% higher close cell ratio for added bouyancy and _exibility. The cells are also evenly spaced to _ll up with more nitrogen gas that makes the neoprene warmer. Limestone is extracted in a much cleaner, environmentally friendly process than petroleum makes NP believe that it should be featured in all their new wetsuits.
BIO CERAMIC THERMAL LINER
Bioceramic is a material composed of a mixture of non-toxic mineral oxides such as platinum, titanium, and aluminium, added to the _bre in liquid form to produce fabrics able to exploit all its properties. Additional bene_ts of bioceramics are the antibacterial and permanent anti-odor characteristics.
NP's advanced Dri Flex knitted outer jersey is 25% lighter with 30% added _ex and dries in a faction of the time compared to our Apex Plus material. This dynamic waf_e jersey is fused with a polyester and spandex blend and combined with Yamamoto Neoprene which means that the neoprene is over 95% water impermeable. Dry Flex Material is truly Lighter, Warmer and Stretchier than any neoprene NP have produced.
Exclusive hybrid neoprene, which combines warmth and wind-chill protection of a mesh wetsuit with the durability of a double-lined suit. Armor-Skin is made from Apex-Lite core, laminated with an elastic jersey and sealed with a waterproof, Super Durable Skin (SDS) layer that cuts down on wind-chill and protects the suit from wear and tear.
