FEATURES OF THE PRODUCT
Maximum freedom of movement
The Tribord 900 men's wetsuit collection has a cut and materials that were specifically chosen to increase freedom of movement as much as possible and to make paddling easier. The entire wetsuit is made from ultra-stretch neoprene. All the seams are stretch seams.
Tribord 900 wetsuits are made from 100% ultra-stretch neoprene to ensure thermal insulation and ultra flexibility. The neoprene is lined with synthetic fabric for added resistance to wear. Neoprene thickness: 2 mm. Neoprene is a closed-cell polychloroprene elastomeric foam with trapped nitrogen bubbles that have insulating properties. The flexibility of the 900 range is provided by the super-stretch properties of the foam and the textiles.
How does neoprene work?
By trapping a thin layer of water around the body, a neoprene wetsuit works in two ways: 1. The trapped water gradually warms up; 2. Heat transfer from the body decreases. The wetsuit and the thin covering of water form a layer of insulation.
The seams are stitched and glued to ensure a watertight seal and durability. The seams are "blind-stitched", which means the thread does not pass through the entire thickness of the neoprene and so prevents water from getting through. The absence of threads on the inside avoids irritation and chafing. Patches for comfort and reinforcement are strategically placed on the inside in sensitive areas.
There is a key pocket in the front panel under the zip.
Hold during use
To keep the shorty suit firmly in place during sports activities, silicone patches have been placed on the inside of the sleeves and at the bottom of the legs.
The neck finish has been developed to limit irritation on even the most sensitive skin. However, we recommend that you wear a UV top under the wetsuit to reduce the risk of irritation.
The front zip that fastens across the front of the chest ensures freedom of movement while providing a better watertight seal than a traditional back zip. The zip pull is made from stainless steel so as not to deteriorate when in contact with salt water.
Sizing and fit
A surfing wetsuit should be a very tight fit to ensure the best possible thermal efficiency. It is perfectly normal to have the impression it is too tight when trying it on in a fitting room or at home. This discomfort quickly disappears once the suit gets wet.
Multi-water sports wetsuits
Our wetsuits are designed to meet the needs of the most demanding surfers. Our design choices also make them compatible with other water sports such as kitesurfing, windsurfing, wakeboarding, water skiing, sea wading or SUP (stand up paddle boarding).
