The wetsuit that was designated “Best on Test” in 220 magazine’s wetsuit group test this year. It retains the award-winning cut, features and finish of our B-First model which make them the fastest and most comfortable suits on the market. Pushing the boundaries of performance even further, the Extreme boasts a panel of Yamamoto Aerodome neoprene covering two-thirds of the front of the suit. The placement of this panel has been studied to allow optimum buoyancy and positioning in the water making the Extreme into a pure rocket! The Extreme is worn by David Hauss, 4th at the London Olympics.
Neck: The neck is cut low from 1.5mm (Yamamoto 40 SCS nano) neoprene to avoid skin irritations and uncomfortable compression.
Arms and shoulders: Formed from the supplest neoprene outer and jersey inner combination in the world (Yamamoto 40 SCS nano plus 360° stretch jersey), the cut allows complete freedom of movement and reduces muscle fatigue to a minimum.
Shark Skin Forearm grip: Allows better mastery of your arm movement and a better « feel » for the water. Wrists: High-cut wrists makes for extra-fast transitions. They are finished with a silicone joint to limit water entry.

Aerodome: 5mm SCS Nano treated neoprene with air bubbles "trapped" in the middle, giving a 30% gain in buoyancy and an amazingly low drag-coefficient through water. Back : 5mm neoprene (Yamamoto SCS nano) with an invisible zip means better hydrodynamics and less water entry.
Lower leg: 3mm Yamamoto SCS nano and ultra supple, they are cut high for lightning transitions.
Jersey: Lycra inner jersey for greater comfort and lightning-fast transitions.
