The Nineplus Yamamoto Front Zip is our most technologically advanced wetsuit with over 4 years of research & development and countless hours of testing.
Produced in YAMAMOTO #39 this is a smooth skin wetsuit which is extremely hi-tech whilst also maintaining the iconic Nineplus styling. This wetsuit was designed for high performance with features including Aerodome Yamamoto chest panels for a lighter suit with increased buoyancy.
The suit features S.C.S. (Super Composite Skin) around the back and shoulders. The hydrophobic cells on the rubber surface repels water giving super low resistance meaning you glide through the water.
The weight of the wetsuit comes in at just 2lbs (1kg). The suits have minimal water retention as the outside single lined smooth skin acts as a membrane and is impenetrable by water. The suits lining being nylon will dry out in under 15 minutes when left to dry inside out. The chest and back is lined in Zirconium thermal polypropylene which being water resistant keeps the core chest area warm. The leg panelling uses a complete piece of nylon to eliminate any seat seams and also doubles in flexibility.
Although the wrist of this model is printed as 3/2mm the thickness of this wetsuit on the Aerodome panel is 4mm on the chest with the rest of the suit being 3mm. Whilst we are working on developing a lighter and thinner Aerodome Neoprene the current thickness has been necessary for current production. As a result this results in a slightly tighter fitting on the shoulders when compared to our Retro Full Suit.
