We categorise our Ex-Demo wetsuit in grades, from A to D. This is based on the condition of the wetsuit and will not affect the overall performance of the wetsuit in the water. The grading conditions are non-negotiable and by purchasing an Ex-Demo wetsuit you are agreeing to the grading terms highlighted below:
Grade A – Looks in very good condition with no tears or damage.
Grade B – Grade B wetsuits will have the odd mark, nick or possible slight cosmetic marks/damage (e.g. fingernail marks, fading/peeling to design), as well as aspects of Grade A. Grade B wetsuits will still perform perfectly.
Grade C – Has fingernail tears or surface tears not (small or big) which need to be repaired by neoprene glue. Has signs of discolouration.
Grade D – Has a tear on the seam, broken zip, severe discolouration.
Discount codes cannot be used with Ex-Demo products. Ex-demo wetsuits are not covered by Zone3 Warranty Policy.
Premium SCS #39 Yamamoto fabrics designed to ensure superb all-over body flexibility, comfort and performance.Zone3 work on new developments withYamamoto as a chosen supplier because the neoprene offers fantastic performance features such as:
Speed: The aqua dynamic 'SCS' Nanocoating applied to the neoprenecreates almostzerodrag through the water. A drag coefficient of just 0.021 compared with 4.0 forregular neoprene wetsuits.The SCS coatingalsoprevents the suit from absorbing water, therefore avoiding excess weight in the wetsuit.
Flexibility:A massive 480-580% in elongation, compared with human skin (under arm) which is just 60-70%.Superior flexibility and comfort with an expansion of 7x conventional wetsuit materials.
Buoyancy:Derived from limestone rather than oil which offers a23% higher closed-cell structure. This significantly increasing the buoyancy levels for the swimmer.
Warmth:High heat retention: Keeping the body warmer in colder waters to help reduce body fatigue and improve performance.
Eco:The neoprene is also derived from limestone opposed to petroleum which is more environmentally friendly.
Extensive research and development on panel design and fabricthickness ensures this is one of the most natural feeling wetsuits you’ll swim in.
Ultra flexible 1.5mm shoulder and underarm panels, completewith premium lining to allow for a full range of movement and minimize any shoulder pain.
Aerodome materials have been added on the leg side panels and hips to help support the core leg muscles further. This material is designed with air bubbles built between the fabric layers to make it lighter and more buoyant, producing up to 30% more buoyancy than conventional neoprene. This is combined with the existing 5mm thickness on the front of the legs and lower torso.
Maximum 5mm neoprene allowed under ITU regulations from the ribs down to the knees, giving plenty of buoyancy and core support toensure the perfect swimming angle.
Ahigher stretch 4mm chest panel aids in course sighting during the swim navigation, keeps up core body warmth and allows chest expansion during heavy breathing.
A new laser cut collar is included in the new version which allows a tighter fit without any feeling of discomfort around the neck.
Pro Speed CuffsTM onthe legs for rapid removal after the swim to ensure the quickest transitions, saving you vital time on any course.
Premium inner linings are used which further add to the comfort and flexibility of the suit.
Downwards YKK zip to enable the suit to go on and off easily.
A combination of our recognized red cuffs for improved visibility and thegraphitesidepanels gives thesuit a distinguished and premium style.
The Aspire is the perfect suit from the beginner athlete, all the way to the pro athlete, andas suchhas been offering a fantastic swimming experience to all of those who have chosen this suit since itsconception in 2008.
