Technical information

How to choose the right wetsuit (Part 1)

The first selection criterion when choosing a surfing wetsuit is the water temperature. Water temperature varies according to the location and the time of the year. Systematically make sure that the water temperature at your spot corresponds to the recommended temperature range: Warm water above 20°C. Temperate water between 17°C and 22°C. Cold water between 12°C and 17°C. Very cold water between 7°C and 12°C. Visit the site seatemperature.org to find out the temperature of your spot.

How to choose the right wetsuit (Part 2)

The second criterion to take into account is the length of your sessions. If your sessions last less than an hour, the 100 models will be suitable. For up to 2 hours, opt for the 500 models and for up to 3 hours, the 900 models.
Compared to the 100 models, the 500 models will be warmer (and more watertight) and more efficient at reducing fatigue (more freedom of movement) and irritation. The same is true for the 900 models compared with the 500 models.
NOTE: the 900 models are easier to put on.

Choose the right size

To make the most of the features of your wetsuit, it is necessary to choose the correct size. A surfing wetsuit should be a very tight fit and there should be no visible folds. When dry, it is perfectly normal to feel like it is too tight, this discomfort disappears as soon as the wetsuit gets wet. If you choose a wetsuit that is too big, folds will appear, you will experience irritation and thermal comfort will be reduced (letting in water).

Returns and exchanges are free at the customer service desk in our stores for a period of 365 days if your purchase is recorded on your Decathlon account. You can also return your wetsuit through the post or at a pick-up point by printing your return form on our website, in: My Purchases. In such a case, you are responsible for the cost of returning the items.

MATERIALS

OLAIAN 900 wetsuits are made from 100% ultra-stretch neoprene for thermal comfort and flexibility. The neoprene is lined with synthetic fabric for added resistance to wear. 5 mm neoprene on the torso and 4 mm on the limbs (arms and legs). The flexibility of the 900 range is provided by the super-stretch properties of the foam and the textile.

Hood neck

The neck finish has been developed to limit irritation. According to the sensitivity of the wearer, a UV top can be worn under the wetsuit to reduce the risk of irritation. The application of grease (e.g. Vaseline) in friction areas (neck, underarms, knees) is also recommended if wearing the wetsuit for long periods.

Freedom of movement

The 900 OLAIAN men's wetsuit range offers a style and material specifically chosen to facilitate paddling and fully ease movement.
The entire wetsuit is made from ultra-stretch neoprene.
All the seams are stretch seams.The front zip totally frees up the back during use.

Zip / Integrated hood

The OLAIAN 900 5/4 mm wetsuit features our built-in hood. This design helps stop as much water as possible from getting in during long sessions in very cold water.
The fastening system with a front zip ensures freedom of movement while providing a better watertight seal than a traditional back zip. The zip slider is made of stainless steel to withstand exposure to salt water.

Key pocket

There is a key pocket in the front panel under the zip.

Watertight assembly

The seams are stitched and glued for a watertight seal and durability.
The seams are "blind-stitched", meaning the thread does not entirely pass through the neoprene, preventing water getting through.
To further enhance the watertight seal and durability of the assembly of our 900 ranges, they are fully taped on the inside.
The absence of threads on the inside also avoids irritation and chafing. Patches for comfort and reinforcement are strategically placed on the inside in sensitive areas.

Water stoppers

The ankles and wrists have special cuffs to help stop water getting in. They also help keep the suit firmly in place when using gloves and boots.

Easy adjustment

The zip and hood adjustment systems are designed to be used with one hand. They are big enough to be used with gloves recommended for sessions in very cold water.

Quick drying

The OLAIAN 900 5/4 mm wetsuit has a new inner lining. This enables not only a minimal weight increase in the water but also ultra-fast drying. It can therefore be used several times a day while still keeping a dry feel when put on.

Stay warm for longer thanks to our thermal accessories! Each temperature range has its own outfit...

When we are in the water, we lose more than half of our body heat through our extremities (feet, hands, head). Consequently, here are the recommended accessories:
- in warm water and temperate water (>17°C) => neoprene low booties.
- in cold water (12 - 17°C): High booties (boots) and gloves.
- in very cold water (7 - 12°C): High booties (boots), gloves, hood and hooded top...

Multi-watersports wetsuits

Our wetsuits are designed to meet the needs of the most demanding surfers.
Our design choices also make them compatible with other watersports such as kitesurfing, windsurfing, wakeboarding, water skiing, sea wading or SUP (stand-up paddleboarding).

Our actions to reduces the environmental impact of our wetsuits

Our 900 range of wetsuits are made from Limestone, a limestone-based neoprene. The black colour of the neoprene, called Eco Carbon Black, is obtained by recycling used tyres. The glue used to assemble the textile and neoprene, called Aquaglue, is water-based and solvent-free. The dope-dyed yarn process used for the black colour is very water-efficient and environmentally friendly.
