With surfing gaining such popularity, more and more people are taking to the water. With this latest invention by Rip Curl, even the cold wonâ€™t stop you from hitting the waters even in more chilly conditions.Rip Curlâ€™s H-Bomb, as this model is named, is the worldâ€™s first power heated wetsuit. The design of the suit integrates heating elements and batteries, cushioning both with a neoprene sponge for comfort.
Using two coated fiber elements positioned on the back, the H-Bomb supplies heat to the core of the body with two Polymer Lithium Ion 7.2v batteries.
The heating elements are made of fibre â€“ thereâ€™s no metal â€“ so thereâ€™s no electromagnetic field generated by any metal component and thereâ€™s no metal to corrode when itâ€™s in salt water.
The H-Bomb costs around 475.-$ and can be ordered online for example on the Freakfish online store.
