Salty Is A Feeling

It’s getting wild on the ocean, the sea spray all over our faces. It’s part of who you become when you’re out there, lost with friends. It’s the salt-encrusted in us after a long day playing with the waves. After a shower, the salt is gone, but the feeling stays there. MANERA always seems to hit the nail on the head when it comes to adventure and the equipment that goes along with it, and 2021 is no different! We’ve got the full scoop over here – check out what’s new for 2021, right here.

Neoprene Collection

Men’s Wetsuits

Meteor Magma (Hooded & Steamer)

The Meteor Magma is built for the cold and windy winter days. The Magma+ is one of the best material out there: not only its fleece works as an effective insulator and heat generator, but it is manufactured to be extremely flexible to keep even the thickest suit very stretchy. In addition, it dries 30% faster than a classic fleece; you’ll never have to put on a wet wetsuit again.

It is the wetsuit of your choice if you don’t want to stay home during winter sessions.

Key Features

  • Front Zip: Fast & easy front zip entry for maximum comfort while riding.
  • Magma fleece Plus: The new MAGMA+ is from a new generation of thermal materials. Its fleece insulates and keeps you warm even during the worst winter days.
  • SD2 Tape 2.0: This new stitching process brings more durability, waterproofness and flexibility to our wetsuits.
  • Back knee emboss: Helps the neoprene to bend more naturally for greater comfort.
  • Water strainer: The leaky + perforated neoprene drains the water out of your leg instantly.

Meteor X10D

Get the ultimate warmth from a light and flexible wetsuit! This is our new school guys favourite for winter sessions.

The Meteor X10D is the ultimate performance wetsuit. In addition to excellent thermal protection, the X10D fleece interior gives flexibility and lightness while providing great comfort. It is perfectly adapted to any discipline where you need maximum flex because of its ability to follow the body’s movements.

If you are looking for lightness and freedom of movement, this is the wetsuit you need.

Key Features

  • Front Zip: Fast & easy front zip entry for maximum comfort while riding.
  • X10D fleece Plus: The X10D fleece offers good thermal insulation all around the chest. It is 22% lighter than a classic jersey, which provides a great comfort/lightness once on the water.

If you are looking for a high-performance wetsuit at an affordable price, this is the right choice.

Key Features

  • Front Zip: Fast & easy front zip entry for maximum comfort while riding.

Harness Collection

Eclipse Harness

Having worked on ergonomic designs for a while, our goal was to push our frame concept to more stiffness, allowing a better support of the back & a lower fit. But something 100% hard was not an option: Our back needs some adaptability & human morphology is unique.

So here comes the ECLIPSE, a skilful balance between stiffness & flex that brings support where you need it and the freedom to move the way you want.

Key Features

  • Adaptive shell: The Adaptive Shell stiffness shades from hard in the centre area to softer on the edges. The stiff centre-belt prevents the harness from folding and compressing your body while preserving good lumbar support.
  • Gel foam: The gel foam disperses pressure evenly & efficiently to provide a “pillow comfort”, much appreciated during long sessions.
  • Tuck flap: By stiffening the connection between the harness and the buckle, they prevent it from riding up.

EXO 2.0 Harness

It isn’t easy to improve a harness like the EXO, but the development of the ECLIPSE has taught us a lot, and we have used this experience to redesign our star harness. We applied Adaptive Shell Technology to the EXO model to provide better support, reduced weight and increased durability.

Thanks to a stiffer centre area, the EXO 2.0 perfectly supports the back. However, it allows greater freedom of movement thanks to its different levels of rigidity, especially its flexible outline.

The soft part of the EXO 2.0 is built in one “Single foam”. The single foam doesn’t absorb any water, so the harness stays light and comfy once in use.

Key Features

  • Adaptive shell: The Adaptive Shell stiffness shades from hard in the centre area to softer on the edges. The stiff centre-belt prevents the harness from folding and compressing your body while preserving good lumbar support.
  • Gel foam: The gel foam disperses pressure evenly & efficiently to provide a “pillow comfort”, much appreciated during long sessions.
  • Tuck flap: By stiffening the connection between the harness and the buckle, they prevent it from riding up.

Spare Parts – Sliding Hook

The Sliding bar offers more freedom of movement and range of motion than the fixed hook. It lets you rotate your body without twisting the harness, for a smoother connection with your kite. The harness doesn’t ride up: as the connection with the kite is closer to the body, it doesn’t have the leverage effect of a fixed hook.
It is a good alternative for foiling, strapless, surfing.

Fits on all our harnesses.

“The Sliding hook offers more freedom of movement and range than the fixed hook.”

Key Features

  • Abrasion-resistant ropes: Maximum durability, tension & tearing resistance.
  • Kevlar construction: Lightweight construction and improved lifespan.
  • Double ropes: Better durability and a slower, more controlled slide.

Accessories Collection

Poncho

This is the perfect accessory to change before and after riding, plus it will get you warm and dry in a minute. Poncho is a widely used product, but we’ve been looking for a warmer, softer, cleaner and greener product.

This new version features a higher collar that protects your neck from the wind, a larger bottom cut to improve freedom of movement and a hood tightening system.

We chose a bamboo fabric for mainly two reasons: The Bamboo material has many great characteristics:

  • Ultra-soft feeling
  • Absorbs water three to four times better than a regular cotton
  • Dries twice as fast as other materials
  • Naturally bacteriostatic
  • Naturally hypo-allergenic

And a reduced impact on the earth!

  • Grows without fertilisers and pesticides
  • Bamboo farming needs four times less water than cotton
  • Absorbs 30% more CO2 than a tree, creates 30% more oxygen
  • Prevents deforestation: Can grow 1 meter per day
  • Prevents erosion because of its long roots
