Our Rip Curl Aggrolite Wetsuit range for Men and Boys prioritises flexibility and paddle freedom for moderate climates, typically suited to regions and seasons when the atmospheric temperatures are colder than the water temps. Rip Curl do this by manufacturing the Aggrolite with high-stretch neoprene and expandable seams: like their unique E-Stitch and the much loved Glued and Blind-Stitched seams (learn more with our
The Aggrolite range differs from Rip Curl's Dawn Patrol and Bomb Ranges in that there are no thermal linings in the aggrolite suits, they're designed for a tonne of stretch, not max warmth. Rip Curl's market leading R&D ensures the value-for-money that earnt them their respect in the Australian wetsuit market.
Rip Curl Aggrolite Wetsuit - Mens and Boys Features
E4/E5 Neoprene: The Aggrolites feature a mixture of E4 and E5 neoprene, depending on the suit. E5 has more stretch but less durability than E4. E4 is most common in the Rip Curl Aggrolite summer wetsuits.
Glued and Blind Stitched Seams: A high performance wetsuit seam is one that has a great deal of stretch but is also sealed and the GBS seam ticks both of those boxes.
Stress Point Reinforcing Tape: Rip Curl created a low-stretch elastomer tape, in the shape of a 20c piece, is glued at high-strain areas and intersections of 3 or more panels to ensure durability. These areas are subject to the most stress, without reinforced taping, these areas will tear apart first.
E-Stitch: An expanding, lightweight stitch that has great elongation and offers minor beathability. A Rip Curl Wetsuit exclusive and perfect for the Aggrolite wetsuits.
Strategic Seam placement: By keeping seams away from the under arms and other key flexibility areas Rip Curl have not only produced a comfier but stretchier wetsuit (because seams reduce stretch)
Mesh Leg and Wrist Seals: smooth-skin lined internal strip at the bottom of the legs and wrist, this stops the arms and legs riding up and inhibits water coming into the wetsuit, via your thighs/arm.
