The Xcel Axis range is the ideal wetsuit for someone after plenty of stretch and comfort but in need of something cheaper
than the top of the range wetsuits. The Axis has serval of the exclusive features in the xcel range, The texured skin
on the front and back of the suit help eliminate the wind chill and keep your core temperature warm as well as lined
with the quick dry lining to help reduce weight and make it a more comfortable lining against the skin of your body.
The ultrastretch neoprene is same as the Infiniti range allowing maximium flex when doing your watersports, being glued
and blindstitched it stops water coming in through the seams allowing the suit to stay lighter, warmer and perform in
the way a top of the range wetsuit would.
Offaxis recommend the Axis range is ideal for anyone after something as flexible and comfortable as a high end wetsuit but
with a more much desirable price tag! We use the 5/4mm Axis range as the summer temperatures drop and the water starts
to cool down. The Axis is still one of the most popular suits for the wakeboarders and surfers who just want something
comfortable and simple, they can use all day which keeps them warm and happy!
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 5/4mm, which means 5mm panels of neoprene from the legs up through the torso
and 4mm 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 5/4mm wetsuit
is ideal from September as the water temperatures are starting to cool down up especially if and that sun isn't shining!
A 5/4mm can be used All the way through the winter till April as things start to warm up once again! Here in Wales
we find a 5mm wetsuit is essential for winter 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. Take a peek at the Size Chart
see which wetsuit ticks the box for you. If you need some more friendly advice on what we recommend, the difference
