With the 2018 collection we provide gear for all types of weather conditions, but what should you pick when the circumstances are constantly changing? Learn more about the best products in our monthly Tech Update!
A PEEK INTO THE FUTURE
With the new year in sight it's time to take a brief peek into the future... Our new collection wil be out in February 2019 and will be built around three main product lines; the Magic Marine Brand, Ultimate and Racing Collection. Lately we've sent out tech updates about the Ultimate Collection and the Brand Collection.
This month's update features the Racing Collection. The name says it all; the Racing Spraytop, Racing Buoyancy Aid and Pro Racing Harness are high end products designed purely for all year round racing. The items which are a little less prominently displayed at this moment as racing items but definitely designed and developed with the same purpose and therefore also part of the Racing Collection are the Ace Fullsuit, Frost Neoprene Gloves and the Frixion Boot. And there is more of this to come in the near future!
CAROLIJN BROUWER: "MORE COMFORTABLE IN MY ACE FULLSUIT THEN I AM IN MY FAVOURITE PAIR OF JEANS"
Our ambassador and Volvo Ocean Race sailor Carolijn Brouwer loves her Ace Fullsuit: “During the year I travel a lot and I sail in various weather conditions, with the different suits of Magic Marine I am dressed for all the elements. But my all time favourite is still the Ace Fullsuit. I dare say I am more comfortable in my Ace Fullsuit then I am in my favourite pair of jeans!”
The leading sailing wetsuit design is the ACE Wetsuit with its advanced technology and materials that allow you to begin the day ready for the conditions. The DryTec quickdry wetsuit revolutionises the current offering to the sailing community. Within an innovation lab, this fabric has been developed and tested and dries 3 times faster than standard neoprene linings. The lining feels as a soft wool sweater and is placed in crucial positions in the chest and back to ensure maximum warmth and comfort.
PRO RACING HARNESS
An update to our best seller, the Pro Racing Harness. This harness is designed to be an all round harness, suitable for a wide range of sailors. It has an internal back support at the mid-lower back to add a lumber support to promote all sailing conditions and positions. It features neoprene leg straps and a quick release spreader bar with adjustment at 4 parts for easy fitting. All straps from the adjustment can be stowed away neatly in an elastic pocket to keep out of the way. Great harness to take you through the elements!
FROST NEOPRENE GLOVES
Our warmest and thickest neoprene winter gloves with leather grip, designed for cold to freezing days. The Gloves are made of 2mm M-Flex neoprene, Clarino® HAR shield and Synthetic leather.
The Frixion boots have been developed in collaboration with Lizard footwear along with extensive research to create a lightweight strong construction specifically designed for grip and durability in hiking boats.
IDEAL BOOTS FOR RACING
De Frixion boots feature a strong and long lasting sole combined with a flexible, lightweight upper with superb grip and an internal EVA pad, which creates a winning, lightweight combination. The grip on instep ensures proper connection with the hiking strap, and grip on the sole ensures the boot will not slip on most decks. The boots have a high cut ankle fit, with lace adjustment to allow movement and flex in the ankle whilst still providing maximum support with a wide upper ankle tightening strap. It's an ideal boot for racing!
SANTIAGO LANGE: "I NEED ALL THE FLEXIBILITY I CAN GET"
Team Rider and Olympic Champion Santiago Lange is a happy man when wearing his Magic Marine Racing Spraytop: "The spray top is one of my favourite Magic Marine items. It's really flexible and comfortable. I hate it when clothes are tight on my body at this age;) I need all the flexibility I can get! The Magic Marine Spraytop certainly give me this!" "Personally, to stay warm on the water I think we need to stop the chill of the wind more than adding thickness. It's the perfect gear to have in the chase boat in case it gets colder."
The Racing Spraytop is a unisex spraytop in black in the sizes XS up until XXL. It's made of waterproof 2Layer stretch fabric with taped seams to provide protection from spray, wind and rain. The top features a neoprene waistband with hook and loop closure
RACING BUOYANCY AID
The Racing Buoyancy Aid is CE ISP 12402-5 approved, it has adjustable side straps, a side zipper entry with chunky YKK zipper, a waist strap with buckle and front pockets for storing essential items. For racing it has an opening for a trapeze hook and for extra safety we added reflective details. For information about the materials we used please go to our website where you find more information.
