Xcel Axis 3/2mm Comp Wetsuit 2017
The Axis Comp is a lighter weight version of the popular Axis series, with an all-nylon exterior and minimal core seams for maximum range of motion. The Axis Comp also features our premium, watertight X2 front entry system with additional seam and material innovations for very good warmth, stretch, and performance. The front and back torso is lined with fast drying, lightweight, and naturally hydrophobic Quick Dry Lining, and the glued & blindstitched seams are sealed with inner Thermo Dry seam tape to keep even more water out. The Axis is also a 100% UltraStretch neoprene suit.
X2 Front Entry System
A watertight front entry system with a front zipper angled along the upper chest. The zipper flap is attached at the right shoulder to keep more water out. The inner Crossover Neck Entry features overlapping panels that stretch to allow extra wide, step-in-through-the-neck entry.
Crossover Neck Entry
Overlapping inner front and back neck panels (underneath the zipper flap) stretch to allow extra wide, step-in-through-the-neck entry.
Quick Dry Lining
Fast drying, lightweight, and naturally hydrophobic, this premium inner lining has an accelerated drying time to improve warmth and overall performance; Quick Dry Lining is also made from recycled polyester fibers for an earth-friendlier final product.
Comfortable, lightweight neoprene with softer foam and a tighter weave textile for less water absorption, better durability, and maximum stretch.
Thermo Dry Seam Tape
This all-way stretch, lightweight, durable interior seam tape creates an even better seal that keeps warmth in and water out. The tape is either infrared patterned (products with TDC) or yellow (non-TDC products).
Glued & Blindstitched Seams
A fully sealed, maximum stretch seam construction. Neoprene panels are glued and pressed together, then blindstitched (needle doesn't fully penetrate neoprene, keeping more water out).
DuraFlex Knee Panels
Comfortable, durable knee panels that stretch with you.
Less Seam = More Stretch
Smarter product design means minimizing seams to maximize stretch. Any seams used are always pre-bent and contoured for a truly engineered fit.
