CONSTRUCTION






QUICK FIT

quick fit system
Everybody knows the problem of putting on a wetsuit. Feet and hands are difficult to get through the tight parts. rapidsuit has solved this problem with special BPS material sliding inlays on feet and hands that allow you to put on the suit quickly and without any struggle. No plastic bag needed for help anymore. A superfast suit = rapidsuit.

Each seam is a weak point for damage. Thats why we kept the design as simple as possible and used only the absolutely necessary seams. Thereby the suit is more robust, more durable and guarantees the maximum freedom of movement.
THERMOSPHERE will be available in the following material thicknesses:

Chest Zip - women / men Back Zip - women / men
3.2 mm 3.2 mm
4.3 mm 4.3 mm
5.4 mm with semi-dry seal 5.4 mm with semi-dry seal







NEOPRENE RUBBER FOAM


Signature stretchy fabric FHY in combination with S type foam neoprene allows maximum freedom of movement while makes the suit lighter, more squeezable and stretchy - and this with no compromise of cold protection.






RUBBER PADS


rubber pad
Protection pads on chest and knees are printed with a resistant and rough material. Compared to patch pads, printed pads reduce weight and volume.






CKP


car key pocket
At the surf spot, the question is often: Where is the car key to be hidden? All your valuables are in the surf van and the best option is to keep the key with you. So there is a pocket for the key on the back lower leg and is equipped with a safety catch.






SMART GENDER DIFFERENCE


smart gender difference
Have you ever inadvertently put your wife's suit on and wondered why he does not fit?
We do not want to built pink Ladies equipment, so we decided to go the smart way. On the outside, the difference can only be found in the color of the model name, this can be seen on the right forearm and on the back of the right shoulder blade. The inner coating is red in women and blue in men. At the latest when you go into your suit, you notice when you put on the wrong one.











ENVIRONMENTAL SUSTAINABILITY






LIMESTONE NEOPRENE


limestone
We use limestone to replace petrochemicals in our neoprene. Limestone is a natural product and less harmful to the environment.

Replaces PETROCHEMICALS In Our Neoprene







ECO CARBON BLACK


scrap tire
A key ingredient of neoprene is carbon black and can now be pyrolyzed from scrap rubber tires. This significantly reduces energy consumption and cuts CO2 emissions by 200 g per neoprene suit.

co2
72% CO2 Emission DECLINED







RECYCLED POLYESTER


plastic bottles
Many parts of our wetsuits are knitted by polyester yarn from recycled bottles. This reduce waste and material consumption at the same time.

45 Plastic BOTTLES = Fabrics For 1 WETSUIT







DOPE DYED YARN


dope dyed yarn
Dope-dyeing infuses dye pigments into molten plastic solution to produce colored yarns without the dyeing process. This saves tremendous amounts of water while reducing energy consumption and water pollution.

104L WATER Resource CONSERVED And 26% CO2  Footprint REDUCED By 1kg Of FBABRIC







WATERBASED GLUE


water based glue
Turning solvent-based glue into waterbased glue, eleminates harmful, volatile and organic compounds.

600g Water Solvent / VOCs ELIMINATED Per Wetsuit







NEOPRENE RECYCLING PROGRESS


neoprene waste
We recycle as much neoprene production waste as possible and turn them into qualified products, thus minimizing the waste that goes to landfills.

5000kg Neoprene Waste REBORN Every Year

PAHs
Our neoprene rubber foam formulation eliminated near all of the polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAHs) substances.

October 10, 2017, Fotoshooting Cloud9, Siargao, Philippines
Sometimes its unbelievable, which massive effort is necessary to get one perfect picture. 

First, the suits came too late from the factory, the time was running out. 

Second, due to typhoon Talim, our flights from Taipei to Siargao were cancelled. 

Third, we flew to Manila to try our luck in the for its killerwaves famous Baler. After nine hours and 247km in a crowded, non-air-conditioned bus, between bananas and garlic boxes, we arrived in Baler. Baler is also well known as the place where the surfing parts for the movie "Apokalypse now" were shoot. However, no swell there, pacific ocean was flat. 

Fourth trial. By postal service, we have sent the tailor-made suit we got to Siargao. On the spot, photographer Oli and Surfer John decide when the Swells are best. That is the result. Thanks John and Oli for your help to make the impossible possible, you have been great! Clearly, time window and costs were out of control completely, but we have the picture and can print advertising banners.
