Kelly Slater to test Quiksilver Prototype Xplosive Wetsuit

Dec '11
Quiksilver's Xplosive Wetsuit, the company's most innovative wetsuit with unparalleled technical design, will be tested this week on Hawaii's North Shore by Kelly Slater as he competes in The Pipeline Masters, the final stop of the 2011 ASP World Tour.

Slater first wore the distinctive, handmade and anatomically designed wetsuit in San Francisco last month when he won an historic 11 X ASP World Championship.

Following the success of the Quiksilver Xplosive Boardshort, launched in June of 2011, the Xplosive wetsuit is the answer to what's next in Quiksilver's technically designed apparel.

The Quiksilver R&D team has been working with leading sports physiotherapist Malcolm Browne to create a wetsuit that assists “explosive” movements, reacts to changes in position and aids control of major muscles- an important factor in reducing injury.

“The power lines have been designed to mimic the naturally-occurring stretch reflexes within the body,” says Browne.

”By adding these lines to the already established reflexes we can amplify the body response of action and reaction. This allows the athlete to move smoothly through all actions which are required by their sport but in a highly energized way. The athlete's awareness of their body is both complemented and enhanced by the suit.”

XPLOSIVE WETSUIT DESIGN FEATURES INCLUDE:
XPLOSIVE PANELS/BANDS: Anatomically placed panels/bands with a rubber band like quality designed to exaggerate the body' s response for action with corresponding recoil to bring the body back to its normal position with technology to assist amplified explosive movements.

PROPRIOCEPTION: The athlete's awareness of their body is both complemented and enhanced by the suit. The quicker the body acts in a sporting sense the quicker the suit will react to that change in position.

INJURY PREVENTION: The wetsuit aids the control of major muscles during explosive actions and also allows for smooth movement. This is highly important in injury prevention.
