YAMAMOTO NEOPRENE: 50 YEARS IN THE MAKING
We make every Yonda wetsuit and tri suit from the world’s most advanced Japanese Yamamoto neoprene.
Embracing eco-friendly materials for over 50 years, Yamamoto has developed a unique production process that is less energy-intensive and emits far fewer greenhouse gases than conventional neoprene.
Yamamoto neoprene is also dryer, lighter, warmer, more flexible, and more durable. So you can lead from the front, knowing you're not leaving a big carbon footprint behind.
NEOPRENE: THE FUTURE'S GREEN
In 2024, we will introduce YULEX® wetsuits, the next-generation neoprene alternative materials. YULEX® is produced from renewable rubber tree forests, reducing CO2 emissions by at least 80% compared to conventional neoprene.
