The 2018 NP Rise 3 quarter leg front zip wetsuit is affordable performance. It features Yamamoto Limestone Neoprene with a high-stretch Apex-Flex neoprene in critical zones allowing for great ﬂexibility and strategically placed seams to achieve a high level of comfort.
YAMAMOTO LIMESTONE NEOPRENE
Premium Japanese limestone based neoprene that is 95% water impermeable compared to 70% for standard neoprene which allows it to absorb less water, dry faster and provides more wind chill protection. It’s unique cell structure has a 23% higher close cell ratio for added bouyancy and ﬂexibility. The cells are also evenly spaced to ﬁll up with more nitrogen gas that makes the neoprene warmer. Limestone is extracted in a much cleaner, environmentally friendly process than petroleum makes NP believe that it should be featured in all their new wetsuits.
APEX-FLEX DOUBLE LINED
Open celled neoprene that is laminated with an abrasion resistant outer jersey and a four-way stretch inner. The Apex Lite core is infused with more microscopic air bubbles making it stretchier, warmer and lighter than traditional neoprene.
