The Venom 543mm wetsuit is an extremely flexible suit that will stretch to follow your body contours and give an excellent degree of comfort and low degree of flushing.
We have used high quality, super stretch 100%CR neoprene on this wetsuit to make what we feel is the best value high specification 5mm wetsuit in the UK today.
The Venom Wetsuit is an excellent, all-round wetsuit for Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter use and is suitable for surfing as well as many other watersports.
The first thing you’ll notice about the Venom wetsuit is how flexible it is. The super stretch material and ‘AS Stretch’ panels make the suit very flexible and comfortable to wear. This flexible design helps the suit to conform to the body shape more effectively than most other suits at this price level. A snugly fitting wetsuit will help minimise water ingress and maximise warmth to help keep you toasty warm in the colder months.
Our 3mm arm panels are designed to keep you free from restrictions while swimming or doing other sports that require flexibility of movement. The thickness of neoprene used varies over different panels of the wetsuit; 5mm neoprene in the torso area helps to keep the body core warm while 3mm and 4mm neoprene offers flexibility in the arms and legs.
Our kneepad design is both tough and at the same time flexible. Some wetsuit kneepads restrict the stretching of the suit quite significantly. Our Armaprene™ material is designed to be 10 times more abrasion resistant than regular neoprene but also retains the ability to stretch.
These features help keep the knee area of the Venom wetsuit flexible and comfortable and at the same time be able to resist a higher degree of wear and tear.
The Venom wetsuit features a ‘Bat Wing’ feature with a double neck to reduce flushing to a minimum. Watch the video to see how this bat wing is put on. The flush guard panel, seen in orange here, traps any water that penetrates the zip and makes a huge difference in keeping water out of this already warm suit.
At the rear of the wetsuit we’ve added a handy draw cord to the high quality zipper to help you get the zip up when you’re on your own. Once the zipper is up you can close the Velcro fastener over and adjust the closure so that it has a nice snug and comfortable fit around the neck.
The flushguard system in the Venom wetsuit prevents water ingress through the zip by trapping it with the bat wing panel. Trapped water is then allowed to drain out through these two drain holes at the bottom of the main back panel.
The wetsuit uses double blind stitching throughout to keep water ingress to a minimum. During manufacture the seams are first glued together, then the interior blind stitch is sewn in, then finally the suit is turned the correct way out and the exterior blind stitch is applied. Blind stitching is a “dry stitch” as it does not penetrate all the way through the material and therefore does not allow water to flow through the stitch hole. This 3 stage seam construction helps to make a seam that is both strong and warm.
