Manera Seafarer Steamer Frontzip

The Seafarer is Manera's entry-level wetsuit and is available in various configurations, including the Steamer, short-sleeved, hybrid (long arm/short leg), 3/2, 4/3, 5/3, front zip, back zip, women's, and men's, which means almost all conditions are covered by this range.

Manera Bikisuit

I have recently had the pleasure to kite in some warmer waters, though warmer than my usual UK, it was still not quite warm enough for just a bikini and a rashy. This gave me the perfect opportunity to try out the new Manera Bikisuit. Firstly the suit arrived in a simple cardboard box, with no plastic wrapping or any...

Manera Halo

Manera has been one of the few companies to not fully embrace the popular hardshell design that has become so universal in the harness world. Now we can finally see what they have been working on as an alternative, and it's very impressive. Behind the scenes, they have been developing the Halo. A harness designed to take the benefits of...

Manera Seafarer Steamer Frontzip

A quality wetsuit that fits like a glove is a must in any quiver, especially if you want to spend a lot of time on the water in less-than-tropical conditions. MANERA's reputation of not compromising when it comes to their design ethos or the quality of their range (not to mention video productions!) had me itching to get my hands...

Manera Exo 2.0

The original Manera EXO was a harness that truly changed the way we thought about harness design. It was the first harness to use an exterior load dispersal shell, at the time Manera worked with a university science team to measure the pressure points on various harness. They came up with the idea of the exterior load frame and using...

The Eclipse is a totally new harness from Manera, the company that changed the game of harness technology as we knew it years ago with the EXO. With the rise in rigid harnesses, many riders have been eagerly awaiting Manera’s entry into this sector. After spending years in development, the Eclipse is now available. Having tried lots of fully rigid...

The harness that changed them all is back for another outing featuring some new materials and features. The core of the harness is the Energy Dispersion Frame, this single unit takes the load from the spreader bar and spreads it evenly across the whole of the harness area.

Manera Union

While most of the harness brands are making super high-end products with the new rigid harnesses, Manera have bucked the trend somewhat. The excellent EXO arguably led the charge for a more supportive harness many years ago, and it does a fantastic job. New for 2018 Manera have launched the Union, priced lower than the EXO it aims to make...

Manera EXO

The EXO harness from Manera burst onto the scene two years ago; it radically changed the way harnesses were made, utilising an exoskeleton to put the frame of the harness on the outside and all the padding on the inside. Manera also worked with a human kinetics science laboratory to test their products to ensure they could make the most...

This ladies shorty from Manera oozes style but also features all the tech found in the men's suit, which is a refreshing change in terms of female wetsuit design, often we get lesser quality materials and features due to the lower number of sales.
