Vaikobi's range of FlexForce wetsuits has been developed and tested with professional athletes, designed to provide extra protection in colder conditions across all wind and water sports.

There's more than meets the eye with this highly evolved range.

The technology inside every Vaikobi FlexForce garment:

Reflect Titanium lining
A layer of titanium is used to reflect thermal body heat. Titanium insulates the core, to help maintain comfortable body temperature and enhance freedom of movement.

REACH compliant

Quick DRI Fleece
Quick DRI Fleece lining is used in key areas to maximise warmth, by expelling cold water and returning to a dry insulating state faster than standard neoprene suits.

VAR - Abrasion resist
Var (Vaikobi Abrasive Resist) delivers protection from contact with boat or board hardware, while maintaining stretch and movement; resulting in a long-lasting wetsuit.
