DESIGNED IN 3D
When the industry standard is to develop 2D patterns and try to fit it on a 3D body, we decided to break new ground and take the opposite direction. We use computer design to model good-fitted wetsuits in 3D, then we employ an innovative software that converts it into a precise 2D pattern for the factory.
It creates a natural, second-skin fit that makes the MANERA wetsuits stand out.
- A GOOD FIT MEANS EVERYTHING -
Warmth: No water entry, no air pocket.
Durability: The neoprene is only stretched when moving.
Comfort: No over tight areas, comfortable armpits/crotch.
Style: Folds will never be fashionable.
Back to back Zip
Our backzip models are built with the same material, constructions and technologies as the frontzip ones. The fit is also the same, so basically only the entry system is different.The backzip got out of fashion recently, although it offers a great flexibility on the chest, very appreciated when holding a kite bar or paddling for a wave.
We use a PK 8mm zip built in high quality nylon, it is a short zip (30cm) in order to maximize the back flexibility.
An inside flap covers the back and goes around the neck, it protects the back from the outside zipper and allows a perfect waterproofness. It also adds a few millimeters of thickness to an area that is very exposed to wind.
Sealing prints make the ankles and wrists stiffer. It has a joint role that keeps the water away and maintains the arms and legs panels in place.
Some areas are very sensitive to friction, tensions and tearing. All MANERA wetsuits have been designed with a demanding brief including:
. Avoiding seams in tensions area, to maximize flexibility and strength.
. Making sure the seams are stretched vertically and not sideways.
. Removing seams from friction areas, which avoids rash and increases stretch capacity.
. Reinforcing strategic parts and panels right where it needs to be.
The different neoprene layers are fused on the tips of arms and legs to make it thinner and more aesthetic. It protects the inside neoprene foam (AIR FOAM) by covering it.
MANERA wetsuits use a new process to bring more durability, waterproofness and flexibility.
The neoprene layers are glued together and then "blind-stitched" (the needle does not go through the neoprene layer completely). In addition to being 100% waterproof, this type of stitching offers a high level of flexibility.
The Triplex SEAFARER is designed to be reliable and efficient.
Re-flex skin / Protection
S-foam / Insulation
X10D + / Warmth & flexibility
These three materials brought together provide everything you need in a good wetsuit: Warmth, flex, comfort.
X10D Fleece Plus
Stretch & Light
The X10D fleece offers good thermal insulation all around the chest. Its thousands of tiny loops trap the heat of your body and create a barrier against the cold outside.
In addition, it is 22% lighter than a classic jersey, which provides a great comfort/lightness once on the water.
Being in direct contact with the skin, the inside jersey is a key part of the wetsuit. Our X10D fabric not only provides maximum stretch and lightness, but also a smooth, silky feeling on the skin.
S-foam is a made from Limestone. It delivers the essentials with a great flexibility - heat - durability ratio.
Born from the latest technologies of stretch fabrics, the RE-FLEX SKIN is extremely flexible, durable and UV proof. It enhances your movements and makes them more explosive.
