Neoprene matrix honeycomb air chambers

NeilPryde Sailing's latest neoprene uses unique technologies NeilPryde Sailing's latest neoprene uses unique technologies

NeilPryde Sailing has used feedback from top level watersport and sailing performers to develop its current range of products.

Fabrics, construction and design have been incorporated to provide the best possible combination of warmth, mobility and protection, explained Irene Duncan, NeilPryde Sailing product range manager.

“As a brand with such a rich pedigree of neoprene production we are continually looking at the latest trends and customer requirements,” she said.


The latest dinghy sailing boots, the Elite Race Lite and the Elite Lace Hike use the latest neoprene and have a more contoured fit than their predecessors.

And the company’s flagship wetsuit, the Elite Firewire Matrix which is available as a long john and Heatseeker vest, use technologies that are unique to NeilPryde, added Irene.

“Demonstrating the wider use of neoprene, the Firewire combination is constructed from the highest quality limestone-based neoprene which features a unique matrix honeycomb of tiny Airdome chambers to trap air, increasing thermal insulation and at the same time reducing weight and bulk,” she said.

The company’s progress is also in tune with market and societal changes, recognising and responding to the rise and involvements of females in sports with the introduction of female product equivalents such as the Elite Firewire 3mm long john and top and the Elite rashguard vest.
