Xcel wetsuits – less seams, more stretch


The Xcel wetsuits range is extensive and the top of the line models are obviously a bit better spec’ed.

Xcel wetsuits seams and construction: Xcel uses a smaller outer seam liquid weld, approximately 6.5mm as opposed to 12.5mm, which allows more stretch than previous liquid seam welds. Xcel wetsuits inner taping method and materials are superior to some other companies. The tape fits flush against both the neoprene and the TDC soft chest lining as well as along the infrared print low pile material. Generally Xcel wetsuits have less seams which means more stretch.
xcel wetsuits are very excited about the new lining that ,regardless of all the scientific properties of the fabric, has provided what every surfer expects from a new wetsuit, greater warmth, increased flexibility , faster drying and durability (its gotta last a few seasons…right).

Xcel wetsuits – keep you extra warm

Xcel wetsuits have a proven record in producing good no-nonsense wetsuits, strong, durable and warm. But now they have moved a head of the competition with the new Thermo Dry Celiant or TDC, inner lining. Believe it or not your body produces infrared light, infrared is an invisible radiant energy. Much of this energy is radiated away from your body and materials like neoprene trap that infrared light. What Celliant claims to do is redirect that energy back into your body, and nobody thought of doing that before, well not the traditional neoprene wetsuit companies. Celiant is a trademarked fibre which is used in medical dressings, bedding and home therapy products. For those who want to get really technical it is synthetic polymer bi-component made from polyethylene terephthalate (google that baby and be amazed) .

The top of our Xcel wetsuits range is the Xcel Revolt 4mm x 3mm, with TDC lining in diamond patterned high pile chest for core warmth, and an infrared print low pile lower body. Add to that a watertight X2 entry system, (100% waterproof chest zip) and drylock wrist seals and you’ll be surfing for hours in the most bitterly cold days of winter. The Xcel wetsuit Infinity is Iess expensive and has the same TDC lining as the Revolt but hasn’t quite the spec’s .
