Fall 2013 Rip Curl Wetsuits Overview

fall-2013-rip-curl-wetsuits

It’s Fall again, and here at Cleanline Surf have just received our big shipment of Fall 2013 Rip Curl Wetsuits, and we are really excited about this years new line! For Fall 2013 Rip Curl has added the latest upgraded neoprene, E4 Neoprene, to their entire wetsuit line, including the entry level Dawn Patrol Wetsuit. The new super stretchy E4  Neoprene is 20% Lighter than E3, warmer, and more flexible than ever. In the 2013/2014 Flash Bomb Wetsuit and other suits that use the exclusive Flash Dry Lining, Rip Curl has upgraded to E4 Flash Lining, boasting 30% more stretch and 20% reduced weight. For those who don’t know Flash Dry Lining is already super insulative and comfortable, not to mention it dry’s in 15 minutes when you turn your wetsuit inside out. The best just got better. As with every new year, there are new colors, and they are bright! Check them out in the gallery below.

E-Bomb Pro Zip Free Wetsuit

What really has us excited though, is the new E-Bomb Pro Zip Free 3/2 and 4/3 wetsuit. Taking the most flexible wetsuit in the industry, upgrading it to 100% E4 Neoprene and removing the Chest Zip. What more can you ask for? Some people have been asking us if it is hard to get in and out of without the zipper, and we have to say, it really isn’t any different that last years E-Bomb Pro when it comes to getting in and out of it, and it is a lot easier than the zip free wetsuit attempts made in past years.

E-Bomb Chest Zip Wetsuit

If you’re looking for something more sturdy, but still flexible then checkout the new E-Bomb 3/2 or 4/3. This suit finds the middle ground of flexibility warmth and durability. Upgraded this year with 100% E4 Neoprene, Fully Taped with E4 Tape, and also feature E4 Action Panels, this is the next level up for Rip Curl’s E-Bomb series.

Dawn Patrol Wetsuit

The 2013 Dawn Patrol is still one of the best bang for the buck wetsuits out there. Available in 3/2, 4/3, and 5/3 thickness in both back and chest zip styles. Upgraded with E4 Neoprene in Key Performance Panels and Flash Lining in the back panel for extra warmth, this series is lighter, warmer, and more flexible than ever.

In with the new, out with the old!

We need to make room for all these 2013 wetsuits and we still have some 2011, and 2012 wetsuit that are on sale at insane prices! Check out our wetsuit sale over at the online shop!
