One of our most popular suits, the AXIS X1 is a durable, warm and a comfortable suit featuring 100% Ultrastretch Neoprene, Xcel’s easiest on/off front entry system, Quick Dry Lining in the front and back torso (chest), and a fully glued and blindstitched seam construction.
X1 – The original, pioneering front entry system remains the easiest chest zip to put on and take off. Front entry with an over-the-head zipper flap for extra easy on/off; with Smoothskin hem seals and a snap lock to keep zipper pull in place
Crossover Neck Entry – Overlapping inner front and back neck panels (underneath the zipper flap) stretch to allow extra wide, step-in-through-the-neck entry.
Quick Dry Lining – More lightweight inner lining with faster drying time, made from recycled polyester fibers
Ultrastretch Neoprene – Comfortable, lightweight neoprene with softer foam and a tighter weave textile for less water absorption and better durability
Texture Skin – Texture embossed rubber that provides excellent wind resistance: ideal for outer chest panels hoods, and other areas that would otherwise lose warmth quickly
Glued and Blindstitched Seams – A fully sealed, maximum stretch seam construction that keeps water out. Neoprene panels are glued and pressed together, then blindstitched (needle doesn’t fully penetrate neoprene, keeping water out)
Less Seam = More Stretch – Smarter product design means minimizing seams to maximize stretch. Any seams used are always pre-bent and contoured for a truly engineered fit
Duraflex Knee Panels – Contoured, durable panels that stretch with you
