The Flashbomb is famously known as the worlds fastest drying wetsuit, what it should also point out, is that its one of the best. With Rip Curls finest wetsuit, they're no compromises, all of the latest technology is included and if youre a regular winter surfer this wetsuit must be considered.
Constructed using the exceptional E5 Flash neoprene, its stretches, is lightweight and warmer than ever before. It is only in the Flashbomb though, that you get complete coverage of the E5 Flash lining, its two engineered layers will funnel water rapidly out of the suit making it one of the warmest and most comfortable suits in the market. To assist the suit warming abilities even further you get a front and back layer of mesh skin that absorbs solar heat to give you an extra kick form the sun that is hopefully shinning down.
All of these features are of no use if the seam construction isnt of the highest quality. Rip Curl have not let us down, they begin by triple gluing and double stitching the seam for strength and lose no flexibility across the seams. E5 Flash lining tape covers the inner seams to ensure theyre no gaps in the lining of your suit while adding an extra seal.
Getting in and out of the suit is easy through the chest zip entry system that also includes a lock slide closure to seal the entry point and prevent flushing. In fact, all of the potential flushing points within the suit, the neck, hands and feet have seals to stop water getting in.
