Fourth Element Launches New RF1 Freediving Wetsuit

For 20 years, Fourth Element has been a pioneer of underwater thermal protection; two decades of experience they now bring to freediving.

Designed for recreational freediving, the new RF collection uses a combination of Fourth Element's proprietary Glideskin and Smoothskin, plus lined neoprene to maximise freedom of movement in the water, allowing the wearer to focus on their breathing, and to visualise and reach their limits.'

The 3/2mm RF1 suit is easy to don but effectively sealed by Smoothskin seals at the wrists, ankles and neck. A 'black-out' zipper and robust inner lining ensure that the RF1 suit is more versatile than open-cell suits, but with water ingress minimised, the wearer is kept warmer for longer underwater.

'Glideskin' panels over the shoulders and along the legs give excellent stretch, improving fit and hydrodynamics, while subtle knee protection and more durable linings elsewhere ensure that the suit is practical for freediving in a range of different environments.

The RF1 suit can be combined with the new RF vest to enhance thermal protection. This creates 6mm on the critical torso area and 3mm protection for the head, keeping suit flush to a minimum without adding restrictive bulk. Both male and female versions of the suit are available

Men's/Women’s RF Vest 3mm: £99.95
Men's/Women's RF1 3/2mm full suit: £349.95
