Our neoprene-free Yulex™ wetsuits are made of 85% natural rubber/15% synthetic rubber by polymer content. Replacing a petroleum-based material with a plant-based one, they offer the same performance attributes as conventional stretch neoprene while reducing CO2 emissions by up to ~80% in the manufacturing process. Derived from sources that are Forest Stewardship Council® certified by the Rainforest Alliance, we blend the natural rubber with chlorine-free synthetic rubber to increase ozone and UV resistance, and meet our rigorous standards for strength, stretch and durability. Combining core warmth and sun protection for the longest sessions, the new R1® Lite Yulex™ Front-Zip Spring Suit is 2mm throughout, lined with stretchy and fast-drying 100% recycled polyester; the face fabric is an 88% recycled polyester/12% spandex blend. The floating front-zip entry provides excellent flexibility through the chest and shoulders and has a corrosion-proof Salmi® zipper; the zipper is fully repairable to extend the suit’s lifespan. Seams are sewn with flatlock construction for comfort and durability. Easy-access key loop included. Suggested water temperatures: 65–75° F/18–23° C.
