  • Suit Description

    The Heat Seeker is Ripcurls next generation winter wetsuit. New to this year, Flex Energy is a revolutionary neoprene that generates heat when stretched. The shoulders and back panel of the suit are made with Flex energy, as you paddle through the water the lining will activate and heat your suit. This technology could be the future of winter wetsuit design.

    E5 flash dry lining throughout whole of the inside of the suit, E5 has 25% more stretch than E4 and is one of the comfiest linings available; the lining consists of two layers, one pulls water from your body and the next rapidly funnels it out the suit. The whole interior of the Flashbomb has an E5 Flash lining tape to ensure you are as warm as possible, this tape has 25% more stretch, is faster drying and is lighter than E4 tape.

    The exterior of the suit is no less packed with the latest technology; liquid mesh is a superior stretch smooth mesh panel that absorbs solar heat and reduces wind chill, this lining is in front chest panel of the suit keeping your core warm. Thermo shield, the grey panels on the forearms, remove wind chill and provides increased durability to the smooth neoprene.

    Expert Advice

    The Heat seeker has got us all stoked at Shore HQ, packed full of technology new to this year saying the Heat seeker is ahead of the game is an understatement! The Flex energy works with you to generate heat whilst paddling and is super flexible so you don't have to fight to catch waves/ stay warm. Ripcurl have kept their super comfortable flash lining from the Flashbmb range through the whole interior of the suit, not only is this the fastest drying material on the market it's also super soft. Zip free entry tends to make a suit harder to get into but with the crazy flexibility of E5 neoprene it should be a breeze! Especially after the suits got wet. The Heat Seeker is Ripcurls all singing, all dancing top spec winter wetsuit that could keep you warm at 0° Kelvin! (Absolute zero way we can guarantee that!) For more advice call 01243 674830.
