H-Bomb Set to Drop at Rip Curl Hossegor (Video)

rip curl h-bomb westsuitThe long waited arrival of the opportunity to get your mits on the world’s first powerheated wetsuit is almost over. Just days before the Quiksilver Pro France holding period is set to open, Rip Curl is officially launching their highly anticipated H-Bomb wetsuit in Hossegor at the Rip Curl Pro Store.

The H-Bomb has been in the works and has undergone heavy amounts of testing for quite some time now. It was actually slated to first drop in stores last fall but was put on hold in order for Rip Curl to make sure they had it just right. Rip Curl is using their revolutionary E3 neoprene for the suits which will have three different temperature settings that can be adjusted with a button located on its outer surface. The idea for the H-Bomb is simple; keep you warm and maintain flexibility even when surfing in the nastiest of cold-water conditions.

As is the case with most revolutionary products when first released, anyone wanting to snag one of these bad-boys in time for winter is looking at a pretty hefty price tag. The coming-out price for the H-Bomb is currently set at roughly $1400. It will definitely be interesting to see just how well these sell with such a large asking price from Rip Curl. I guess for some who have the money and regularly surf in bitter-cold conditions it might be worth it. I think for now though I’ll be sticking to my natural heater whenever I need that little burst of warmth.
