Dry Knit is a new and exclusive lining material developed exclusively by C-Skins. The new DryKnit lining is built up of 2 layers – the outer layer is made using a hollow fibre yarn that is super hydrophobic and insulative, which traps a thin layer of air between your body and the wetsuit and also allows water to quickly pass to the Dry Knit inner layer. Once the water has passed to the Dry Knit inner layer it will quickly drain out of your wetsuit to make a super fast drying and lightweight wetsuit.
LASER CUT SOLE
C-Skins bring you another first with new and exclusive Laser cut technology. The laser cut flex channels are positioned to run along the length and width of the sole to maximise freedom in the foot as well as increasing grip and stability.
C-FLEX HOT TAPE INTERNAL SEAMS
C-Flex Hot Tape exclusive to C-Skins is a 0.5mm C-Flex Ultra Stretch Tape which is glued and pressure bonded to the inner seams increasing the seams durability and water resistance over time, without impacting on the flexibility and stretch of the wetsuit or accessory.
LOCK DOWN ANKLE CUFF
The Lock-Down cuff is designed to create a comfortable, watertight seal against your skin by using a special tooling which makes the cuff edge completely seamless. Likened to a ‘donut’ or ‘lantern’ shape when worn the panel stretches out to create that ultimate seal! No more flushes!
TRIPLE GLUED & BLINDSTITCHED SEAMS
A fully sealed, watertight seam construction that keeps water out. The panels are first glued and then press together, followed by a stitch that doesn’t penetrate all the way through the neoprene. Glued and Blindstitched, also known as GBS.
LIQUID SEALED SEAMS
A liquid rubber seam construction which is usually combined with GBS to add strength and to increase the quality of the watertight seam.
C-FLEX ULTRA STRETCH NEOPRENE
C-Flex Ultra Stretch Neoprene is C-Skins stretchiest and most versatile neoprene. It is a comfortable lining with a stretchier foam and a tighter weave which is very durable and carries minimal water.
ASYMMETRIC ARCH SUPPORT
C-Skins exclusive Asymmetric arch support combined with a stitchless velcro adjustable bridge strap pulls the boot up in the arch of your foot while tightening it to your outer heel. This diagonal tightening action means that the boot mimics your foot shape closer than ever while not needing unnecessary arch inserts. This is the closest you will get to bare-foot surfing!
EASY-ON HEEL PULL LOOP
The Easy-On Pull Loop attaches to the boot using a pressure bonded stitchless construction, which means that there will be no stitches penetrating the neoprene which can create weak points, breakages and leaky boots. Easy-On Pull Loop gives a secure, durable and dry means of pulling your boots on.
