Intelligent design packed with technology
The Recon wetsuit is the result of an extensive collaboration between our athletes, testers and designers. Paying close attention to details, the Recon focuses on movement, protection and warmth as the ultimate waterman’s Swiss Army knife that can be used for kiteboarding, windsurfing, surfing, paddle boarding and wakeboarding.
Yamamoto Limestone Neoprene, Bioceramic Lining, Infrared Zipper, Stitchless Seams, Aqua Vents and the Dri-Flex waffle jersey are just some of the tricks in the Recon arsenal.
COLD (6-12 _C / 43-54__F)
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.
Closed-cell neoprene with the addition of a 3D matrix of air chambers that trap heat and increases buoyancy and _exibility. Air pockets insulate the body the way double-paned windows insulate a house. The end result is a warmer and lighter suit without adding thickness.
