Join Us In The Fight For Freedom. There’s a place on the water where conventions and gravity conspire against you in smug self confidence. Here, in the relentless battle to free ourselves from limitation, few – if any, are spared. (They call it the cutting edge, because some days when you pass through it, it can actually cut). The price of admission is adrenalin, and now something else… The NPX Assassin. It’s the choice of totally hard-core freedom fighters worldwide, the most demanding riders who used to think the best wetsuit was no wetsuit at all. Assassin is fully loaded for unrestricted radical movement, with hot cell insulation, aqua venting, and other brilliance. It’ll keep you toasty while it liberates your inner ninja-ness, and it will gladly sacrifice it’s life for yours if you need it. NPX Assassin. Freedom comes at a price. Pay up.
Apex-Flex:Top-of-the-line double-laminated material. Super stretch and lightweight with an abrasion resistant, outer and a four-way stretch inner.
Hotcell Insulation:Lightweight, quick drying polypropylene insulation. The cellular structure traps an insulating layer of warm water next to the skin, keeping the core temperature up.
Bamboo Charcoal:Bamboo Charcoal is known for its inherent antimicrobial and anti-odor properties. This natural fiber is woven into our lining to provide the hygiene benefits
E3 Entry System:The E3 entry system is compromised of a pull-over bib and gusset that forms a water-tight neck seal and prevents water from entering through the back.
S5 Smoothskin Neck Seal:Limestone based neoprene from Yamamoto Corporation, Japan. The smooth closed cell neoprene has a unique coating that makes it 95% water impermeable compare to 70% of the normal petroleum based neoprene, therefore it sheds off more water and quicker. Also compared to the standard petroleum based neoprene, S5 has a 23% higher closed cell ration that keeps you warmer by providing the maximum wind chill protection.
Glued and Blindstitched Seams:An efficient, water-tight seam created through a triple gluing process in conjunction with a blind stitch that does not fully penetrate the rubber. The technique allows precise curved seams and facilitates a snug, anatomically correct fit.
P Skin Sealed Seems:Seam sealant made of polyurethane. Stretchier and thinner than any other seam sealant on the market.
Elastic Key Loop
Velcro Attachment for Zipper Pull
PU Knee Pads:A highly durable, abrasion resistant PU print technique.
Aquavents:A water venting system in the ankles – releases water caught in the suit.
