Both versions feature an interior liner of plush Poly Fleece to help retain body heat and minimize water absorption. The 4/3 is extensively lined with this material, in the front and back core and the entire midsection, while the 3/2 is lined exclusively in the front chest panel for core warmth.
For a spring suit so comfortable you’ll hardly know you’re wearing it, get wet with the Elara 3/2. This is the ideal choice for the shoulder season, when water temperatures are cold enough to warrant full coverage but air temperatures are warm enough that the thickest suit in our lineup is overkill. You’ll enjoy longer sessions with less restriction and more energy thanks Ride Engine’s SmartStretch limestone-based neoprene. A fleece-lined chest panel add extra warmth and heat retention at the core.

The Elara Series: Designed and built with superior warmth and comfort in mind, the women’s specific Elara series features all of the same high-end materials and construction as Ride Engine’s men’s suits, but with an attractive splash of color and style to set it apart. The Elara’s easy-entry back zip design comes in two thicknesses, 4/3 and 3/2, with both thickest at the core and tapered at the extremities to balance warmth and flexibility where they are needed most.
BOMBPROOF BACK ZIP
Sturdy YKK bombproof zipper and interior overlapping helps keep water from seeping in through closure.
No Ride Engine suits contain C8, C6 or C4. These toxic chemical enhance drying time. They also eventually leach into the water that we all share and love. We aren’t down with that.
Neospan S-Foam Neoprene: Industry standard for high-end suits, avoids environmental impacts of standard petroleum-based Neoprene
Stitch pattern designed to allow for maximum range of motion while avoiding stretch points and minimizing chafing.
Rugged, abrasion resistant BAX material covers knees of all long suits for added protection and durability where it’s needed most.
BLOAT FREE DRAINHOLES
Strategically located to drain water and prevent “elephant leg syndrome”
PULL OVER NECK GASKET
Zips into the interior of the suit and helps prevent flushing through the neck opening.
Thermalux Poly Fleece lining (on cold-water models) Minimizes water absorption and retains heat to keep you warm, dry and comfortable in all conditions. Layer tapers from thickest at the core to thinner at extremities to maximize warmth and mobility.
