The surge in the wetty category overwhelmed even some of the biggest players of the market. How did you cope with the demand in SS21?
I believe we delivered everything that was pre-ordered but top ups have been limited to core lines.

Can you please give an overview of your different ranges (performance, constructions, prices) for SS22?
The leading GBS styles of Torch FX, Pyro FX and Stealth see small detail changes and fresh colours, prices are up a little but not too drastic.

Which are your key innovations for SS22? (materials, constructions, styles…)
The FX fabric used on the upper body of Torch FX & Pyro FX is a winner! It’s so light and stretchy you won’t believe it!

Bold colors and graphics seem to be a thing of the past among the Spring-Summer wetsuit offer. Is the period more prone to fine details, textures and low profile prints?
Yes, we are now able to use a range of inks including matt, raised and digital, these small details make a big eye catching impression when hanging on the retailers rail.

Sustainability is key in the wetsuit category: which materials/process did you implement in SS22?
Around 95% of our wetsuits and neoprene accessories range now use water-based glues making it safer for the construction team.
