MAX_FLEX –
THE INNOVATIVE OUTSIDE LINING

Created in a weaving process, the three dimensional mesh is characterized by its rhombus structure. The unprecedented technology offers you 30% more stretch with the same power applied.

FREEDOM
OF MOVEMENT
The stretchiest wetsuits allow for the most radical movements. Whether it be board-offs or grabbing the rail, feel the freedom in your moves out there.
POWER SAVING Less force required, equals more energy on the water. Extend your session by saving power on all your moves.
QUICK DRYING The lining doesn‘t soak water. Small channels on the 3D mesh increase evaporation hence reducing drying time.
MAXIMUM COMFORT Wearing comfort before, during and after a session is notably improved. More stretch results in a seemless wearing experience.

How much Flex?! This much Sustainablity.

All Max_Flex featuring ION wetsuits are developed by using mulitple sustainable materials and production techniques.

Oystershell powder

Oystershell
Powder

We use biocalcium oxide powder made from abandoned waste shells to partially replace limestone in the neoprene. This process recycles waste oyster shells and is part of our neoprene’s sustainability contribution. Oystershell Powder is available in all Select and AMP Level Wetsuits.

Aqua alpha technology

AQUA-ALPHA™
TECHNOLOGY

ION Wetsuits use the Aqua-α ™ technology. Aqua-α ™ is a solvent-free and completely water-based glue, which protects the health of workers at the factory as there is nearly no bad smell from the glue. The difference is huge - a good step for the people behind all the great wetsuits and the environment.

All ION wetsuits are manufactured climate neutral. This means we offset our CO₂ emissions, caused by production and transport of our products, by supporting supporting clean electricity in Gujarat (India) and improving livelihoods though afforestation in Huangping (China) – supported by ClimatePartner. The entire process is transparent and traceable thanks to the ClimatePartner label and a certificate.
