ASB MAGAZINE: From the brand that has delivered some of the highest performance surfboards for over 30 years brings you the same precision and technical expertise into a new wetsuit range. Rusty’s new A Series Ecoprene 3×2 Chest Zip Long Sleeve Wetsuit is light, comfy, strong and warm while maintaining the highest performance in flexibility. Rusty wanted to design the best performing wetsuit that’s also the best performing for the environment. Rusty said they were sick of seeing the big players in wetsuit production continually using harmful petrol chemical-based neoprene in their ranges just to cut costs. The company has utilised ECOPRENE foam, made from 100% limestone-based foam providing the lightest, comfiest and strongest foam available. The entire suit is constructed from eco-friendly yarns and jersey as well as water-based glues and laminates.
According to Rusty, Ecoprene is the lightest weight, warmest & stretchiest limestone-based foam available. Ecoprene contains ZERO petrol chemicals unlike most of the market’s neoprene-based suits, the foam is 100% synthesised from the highest quality limestone providing the lightest, comfiest and strongest foam on the market.
Full body recycled thermal lining traps in body heat and dries fast. Ecofuzz is a market leading fabric that Rusty developed with their designers that will keep you warmer for longer.
DOPE DYED YARNS
An eco-friendly water saving, anti-fade dying technique.
Eco-friendly, water-based glues and laminates. No nasty solvents.
Anatomically engineered panels with minimal seams for unrestricted performance and warmth, the lightest, comfiest and strongest on the market. Each panel features triple glued, double blind stitched seams. ECOPRENE internal taping also maximises seam seals while having unrestricted stretch and comfort. The suit also features silicon seals on the cuffs of the arms and legs to prevent flushing. Rusty’s chest-zip is designed for the performance surfer in mind. Easy entry, Rusty’s quick zip closure and minimal bulk for a perfect fit. Rusty’s suit also comes with a market leading YKK zip that provides self-locking once closed as well as a secure lock tab.
On the outside, Rusty added abrasion resistant kneepads for flexibility and stretch as well as embossed reverse knee details which adds to knee flexibility and better range of motion.
