Xenos and Proteus Wetsuits – designed for divers by divers
XENOS – THE FAST TRANSITION WETSUIT
No effort required
Did you know that the Xenos design was inspired by some of the features of triathlon suits? The cut away ankles put an end to hopping around trying to pull the legs over your heels – combine the cut with the smooth low-friction linings in the arms and legs and the suit simply glides on – no effort required.
Many wetsuits claim to be easy to get on and take off. They might be, but they compromise warmth for speed, and it’s no good being first in the water if you can’t wait to get out again. This is where the Xenos comes into its own. The thermal linings on the core combined with the blind stitched seams give a high level of thermal protection, whilst the Hydrolock wrist seals do exactly what they say – lock out water minimising ingress, without compromising on the ease of getting your arms in and out.
Putting on a suit that’s already wet from previous dives is never a joy and getting the arms and legs on is especially frustrating. If you’re on a liveaboard vacation or doing multiple dives a day, you’re going to love the Xenos – turn it inside out, hang it up and by the end of your surface interval, the arms and legs will be dry and you’ll be back in the water with a smile on your face!
PROTEUS II – ADVANCED WETSUIT TECHNOLOGY
Spreading the warmth
The Proteus II is arguably the highest performing wetsuit on the market, and a key to its warmth is what’s on the inside – a Hexcore thermal lining on the core and Thermoflex thermal lining through the rest of the suit. These linings, combined with the Proteus’ unique design keep you warm – very warm – and that translates into versatility and longer dives, which is pretty much what all of us are after.
Proteus divers are amazed at how little water enters the suit, with some even naming the suit a semi-dry. We don’t really mind what it’s called because the proof is in the performance. The unique use of our Hydrolock inner neck seal combined with glideskin wrist seals and seams that are blindstitched, double glued AND taped, minimises water ingress and keeps you diving warmer for longer.
Between 15 – 20% of the rubber used in our wetsuits and neoprene products is derived from recycled car tyres. As part of Mission2020, we are working hard to develop new products (and re-develop our existing products) using recycled materials wherever possible.
