In regards to which Maverick model to choose, there are different upgrades to each model as you go up in price that will help your performance. All of our wetsuits feature our Arms-Up shoulder construction which will give you more flexibility and arm movement in the shoulders. Most of our Maverick wetsuits also feature our 1:3:5 buoyancy profile that gives your buoyancy where you need it most, with the exception of the MX and Pro Thermal which utilize a 3:4:5 buoyancy profile.
The Comp II and MX wetsuits are made from a combo of Yamamoto 39 neoprene in the torso and arms, and Yamamoto 38 in the hips and legs. The difference between these 2 suits is the material of the centerline buoyancy panel. The MX utilizes Aerodome in the torso which is lighter weight and more flexible.
The Maverick Pro II and Maverick X are made from a higher grade of neoprene (Yamamoto 39 in the legs, and Yamamoto 40 in the torso and arms) that is more flexible than the Elite II and Comp II. The Pro II has a 1.5mm strip of neoprene (we call this an RS2 panel) on the side of the leg to help with body rotation. The Maverick X has an RSX panel which will also help with body rotation, but it will feel more natural than the RS2 panel on the Pro. The Maverick X also has IXI taping over the hips and glutes inside the suit to provide additional support to your core to keep you in a streamlined position as your body starts to fatigue. Sleeveless suits (same features) are available for the Maverick Pro and Comp.
