The new FUSE Drysuit from ION combines warmth and comfort in a revised and colourful design.

The FUSE drysuit made it’s debut back in 2010 and caught a lot of attention for its new design and functionality approach: A loose fit Neoprene drysuit made especially for water boardsports. It combines the advantages you know from snug fitting Neoprene wetsuits and loose fit but nonelastic Nylon fabric drysuits. The FUSE is made for all you hardcore guys who don’t care about minus degrees but just go out for a session even in the coldest winter time.

The 2013 edition FUSE drysuit comes for the first time ever in two different and at the same time highly visible colourways for extra safety in severe conditions on the water.

New Supra_Tex reinforcement provide extra protection and increase the durability. The FUSE is completely waterproof, due to flexible TIZIP® MasterSeal zippers on the back and the brand new P_Zip (guess where, for extra long sessions). All openings of the FUSE are sealed with SEAMTITE ® latex cuffs. The Glued Blind Stitch (GBS) seams are additionally taped from the inside – like you might now it from premium waterproof outdoor jackets – which makes them the safest waterproof solution so far.

The detachable hood design with its reinforced shield provides a perfect shelter against the harsh elements. It can be adjusted tightly around the head without restricting the view in any head position while riding. The Neoprene panels used in the FUSE drysuit are up to 4 millimetres thick, but still very elastic, which guarantees a maximum freedom of movement.

In short:

The FUSE is probably the warmest Neoprene suit solution for eversbody that wants to make his next season last 12 months!
