Bare's Reactive Wetsuit is a state-of-the-art wetsuit innovation, as it uses Graphene OMNIRED, a responsive textile that captures the body's heat and transforms it into insulation. This heat-capturing technology allows the Reactive to insulate divers for hours without any issues. Since Graphene and OMNIRED work together, divers can maximize their comfort on every dive.
At its core, Graphene is a one-atom-thick layer of carbon formed into a hexagonal lattice structure. At room temperature, it’s one of the best conductors of thermal energy ever discovered. Graphene is strong, flexible, lightweight and, of course, highly conductive—all traits that are ideally suited for use in a wetsuit. Tests have shown a 5-degree Celsius average temperature increase over the original OMNIRED Technology.
However, Bare did not stop at the lining. In a step towards sustainable design, the Reactive is made from a pure 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 your suit while sparing the air of unclean toxins during the production process.
