MANERA is expanding its collection and is now offering a complete range of wetsuits for MEN & WOMEN, from the MAGMA 5/4/3 Steamer Full Suit to the X10D 2/2 Shorty Short Sleeves. All in all, the METEOR collection is composed of 23 models in various panels thicknesses, 2 different neoprene technologies (MAGMA and X10D) and multiple colors.
Every 2D panel is the result of a patented 3D/2D flattening optimization process, respecting both 3D design and body geometry. Once assembled, the wetsuit is astonishing: everything fits perfectly creating an incredible 3D shape. The wetsuit really looks like the 3D model. It has a body shape even when left on a hanger.
Wearing such wetsuits makes you feel the real added value we’ve invested in these technologies. Our range is made with wetsuits from 2.2 mm shorty to the 5.4.3 mm steamer with the TRIPLEX MAGMA neoprene as the top end, the V FOAM, the WATER STRAINER etc.
TWO DIFFERENT CONSTRUCTIONS:
DESIGNED IN 3D:
Technical and trendy, those wetsuits will be the solution to your winter; spring and summer sessions. We are convinced that design is the key to warmth, comfort and freedom. Design decides if you’ll be out of the water first or last. Today wetsuits are still designed with neoprene panels, scissors and patterns. Our commitment is to provide the best design in term of fit accuracy and adaptability. That is why we use an exclusive software, unique in the neoprene industry of 3D design and exclusive pattern making technologies to bring the highest level of fit & feel to high performance water sports wetsuits. Knowing who you are and what you look like is the fundamental assumption to make our wetsuits fit perfectly your body. Out of 11 500 3D scans, we have statistically selected the most representative morphologies of our market, depending on age, sex and sports practice frequency. We are taking into consideration the whole 3D shape of every single scan, instead of relying on the few measurement usually taken into consideration. We design directly on our 3D models, keeping the anatomy in mind, defining simultaneously pattern cutting line locations and restrictions. Style and technique merge together, avoiding mismatched cuttings or illusory designs.
Better than your own skin. The RE-FLEX outside skin is extremely stretch, smooth, durable, UV-resistant, it enhances your movements and makes them more explosive.
The SD2 tape is the best balance between stretch, strength and waterproofness. This technology consists in gluing and blind-stitching two neoprene panels together, then overtopping it with our ultra stretch tape: it makes the seams 100% waterproof and substantially enhances durability, while still keeping the seam as flex as possible.
A wetsuit leg filled up with water is a very uncomfortable issue: the MANERA WATER DRAIN panel is here to prevent it. The leaky & perforated neoprene drains the water out of your leg instantly to let you continue the session in the best possible conditions.
Some areas are very sensitive to friction, tensions and tearing. All MANERA wetsuits have therefore been designed with a demanding brief including avoiding seams in tensions area to maximize flexibility and strength; making sure the seams are stretched vertically and not in a horizontal way; removing seams from friction areas, which avoids rash and increases stretch capacity; reinforcing strategic parts and panels right where it needs to be.
SEALING PRINTS make the ankles and wrists stiffer. They have a joint role that keeps the water away, and maintains the arms and legs panels in place. They are made to be stretch enough to put-on and remove the wetsuit easily.
If the WATER STRAINER panel is still not enough for you: MANERA ankle straps are designed to be very thin so water sprays can’t take them off. They are also stiff enough to block the water from coming in and light for better comfort.
FUSED CUT is the fusion of our RE-FLEX SKIN with the MAGMA FLEECE / X10D JERSEY at the tip of the arms and legs. This aesthetic finish helps out with catching less water thanks to its thinness and fit on the skin. It also wraps around and protects the inside neoprene.
Most wetsuits are often stored on hangers, damaging and deforming the shoulder parts, which is one of the most important part of your wetsuit. The HANGER TOLERANCE PRINTS will strengthen this strategic area to protect the neoprene material and maintain the right fit in a durable way. It is designed to let the shoulders free and comfortable during riding.
