ION Onyx Select Semidry 5/4 FrontZip
FREE poncho with this wetsuit! Poncho colour selected at random.
The ION Onyx Select 5/4 is the all-rounder with a classic tight fit for all water sports athletes expecting the highest standards without compromise: maximum level of comfort and freedom of movement with the ultimate level of warmth all year round.
Get ready to face the (coldest) elements – Onyx Select is all about ultimate warmth and high quality materials which is why it is equipped with ION’s toasty warm Plasma Plush 2.0 all the way down to the lower legs along with other heat-insulating features. On the outside, Drygrid ensures less water absorption, which increases the warmth and light weight. In spots without thermo lining, super soft Silk Stuff increases next-to-skin comfort to the max. Thanks to the front zip design, there’s nothing to interfere with your paddle power.

Unsure of your size? You can check out ION’s wetsuit size chart here.
85% Neoprene / 15% Nylon
Suitable for temperature: 6°C – 11°C, 43°F – 52°F
Superior Warm: Ultimate warmth thanks to Plasma Plush 2.0 combined with stretchy Hot Stuff 2.0 inside lining.
Optimum Stretch: Limitless freedom of movement thanks to less panels and the use of our stretchiest linings.
Replaceable Draw Cord: The cord is used to tighten the suit at the shoulder. The high load on this small detail can lead to unavoidable damage. Now it can be easily replaced. This is ION’s answer to planned product obsolescence that occurs in many other industries.
Leave the water in its rightful place down below, not in your wetsuit – Drygrid absorbs up to 30% less water. As a result, the wetsuit is lighter and cooling by evaporation is reduced. Last but not least the look of the Drygrid contributes to the sophisticated detailing.
Plasma Plush 2.0
Premium lining offering the best of heat retention and stretch. The high pile fabric traps air for snuggly warmth and insulation while the vertically aligned channel structure transports moisture away quickly – for a dry suit after your break in between sessions.
Smooth inside lining for a comfortable feeling on bare skin. Despite its snuggly appearance it proves to be really hard core when it comes to the interior’s superb flexible characteristics.
Ultra slim outside sealing technology for a long lasting life span providing freedom of movement and comfort wrapped in a smart package. The Power Seams adding a special touch and unique look to all ION Select models.
The I Foam is an extreme lightweight and stretchy neoprene foam. Thanks to the new foamed structure with more air trapped inside and a lower density the I Foam also contributes to heat insulation and better flexibility.
Maki Tape 2.0
Highly elastic neoprene tape reinforces the seams on the lower body and commonly stressed cuff area from the inside.
Seam-free shoulder design for increased paddle reach and shoulder rotation.
So let’s get down to the nitty-gritty: A soft cord lock for front-zip wetsuits that can be adjusted with just one hand. It’s a subtle addition that won’t bother you while riding.
All stress points are reinforced and secured by melco tape from the inside to ensure a longer lifespan of the seams.
Embossed sleeve and leg ends for a sleeker and more durable finish.
Elbow and Knee Hollow Embossing
Less material at the crook of the arm and knee bends increases the freedom of movement when bending them.
Again, this feature prevents water from rushing into the wetsuit by sealing off the cuffs and collar thanks to small rubber strips on the inside.
Quick water release when needed in order to combat water accumulation inside the wetsuit. The Drain Holes are secured in place from the inside and won’t expand.
All ION wetsuits with long legs come with detachable velcro straps (Leg Loop). The loops can be wrapped tightly around the ankle to prevent water from rushing into the suit. To avoid losing the Leg Loops when you’re in the water, they feature a unique, extra-strong velcro construction. If you choose not to use the velcro loops they can easily be removed by hand. Rear-zip wetsuits come with an extra-plush panel to secure the Leg Loops even tighter.
Enjoy the session and stop worrying about your keys. Just store them in the Key Pocket inside the wetsuit. Please note, only store water resistant keys in order to avoid any damage.
