Off the top in overhead surf or kite sessions when the wind goes sideshore, the R1 Back-Zip Short-Sleeved Full Suit combines comfort and stretch for optimal performance in warmer waters. Made with high-quality, ultra-flexible neoprene and a lightweight, fast-drying recycled polyester lining; features include anatomical patterning, external sealing on all seams, flexible one-piece front panel, extended flap at neck with PU-molded closure for increased comfort, and back-zip for easy on/off. Ankle cuff edges are heat-pressed to reduce hydraulic lift and flushing, and flexible, PVC-free kneepads offer long-lasting durability. Critical seams and stress areas are secured with glue dots, 1cm bartacks and Melco® reinforcements.
