The BARE Evoke 5mm scuba diving wetsuit, representing a giant stride in wetsuit innovation, integrates Graphene Technology, a carbon nanostructure lining that captures and utilizes your body heat. By tapping your body’s thermal energy output, the Evoke can insulate your core and keep you warm for hours on end, providing you with optimal comfort on every dive.
Graphene, fundamentally, is a one-atom-thick sheet of carbon that has a hexagonal lattice structure. At room temperature, it is one of the best thermal energy conductors that has ever been discovered. Materially, Graphene is strong, flexible, lightweight and, of course, highly conductive—all traits that are well suited for use in a wetsuit.
In addition, as part of our efforts to promote sustainable design, the Evoke is made from limestone-based foam that minimizes pollution while performing at the same level (or higher) as petroleum-based alternatives. Dope-dyed fibers cut pollution and wastewater discharge in our textile operations, and water-based glue—rather than solvent—perform over the long life of the suit while sparing the air of unclean toxins during production.
