New for 2017, the Axis Comp from Xcel use the most flexible, lightweight and softest neoprene in their range. The use of one large comp panel on the front and back of the wetsuit has zero seams from the upper chest to the knees optimising maximum flex in motion! The Axis comp features the V foam and quick dry lining making the suit one of the lightest in the range, enhancing your surfing performance by not carrying any unnecessary weight. This suit combines the famous Axis characteristics like their glued and blindstitched technology which gives you added flex in the arms when you need that extra power in your paddling and their stretchy fusion welded tape in the lower body to reduced water penetration keeping you warm and comfortable.
Offaxis recommend the Axis comp range is ideal for the surfers who desire more performance in the slightly milder climate. A fantastic wetsuit Ideal for the UK summers. Here in Wales we like to use the Axis comp suit (3/2mm in the summer) if we know we can only have a quick hour or 2 of surfing. Giving you the ability to surf and paddle to the max and have no flex restrictions. The Axis Comp is not quite as warm as the Axis but fantastic if you can only manage a shorter session and your trying to cram your wave count!
Picking The Right Wetsuit For You
Thickness, style and size are the 3 key points we tell all our customers who are in need of wetsuit, add in a budget and you have a winning combination to find the perfect wetsuit best suited to you!
Offaxis recommend choosing the right thickness for you depends on your geographical location and when you will be using the wetsuit the most. This wetsuit is a 3/2mm, which means 3mm panels of neoprene from the legs up through the torso and 2mm of neoprene down the arms. The benefit of this is that you get the flex in the arms but maintain the warmth in the core of you body when it comes to doing your watersports. Here in the UK we recommend a 3mm wetsuit is ideal from early June as the water temperatures are starting to warm up especially if and the sun starts shining, all the way through to late September if the season has been nice and water temperatures are still up! Here in Wales the 3/2mm wetsuits are very popular for summer watersports.
When it comes to choosing the right size wetsuit it is very important to get the fit correct. If your suit doesn't fit right it will not do the right job! Offaxis recommend your suit ideally should fit like your second skin and feel comfortable to wear. If your suit is too large air and water will fill in the gaps and cool your body down very quickly. If the wetsuit is too tight then it will be uncomfortable to wear and you will put stress on the seams which will stretch and damage the wetsuit.
