X-Ray Camo camouflage

Beuchat’s exclusive X-Ray Camo camouflage is based on the Beuchat Trigocamo photographic camouflage, specially redesigned for an ultra-smooth suit.

Natural monochrome colours melt into the underwater background.

X-Ray Camo camouflage is used on different parts of the Espadon Elite in order to break up the silhouette of the suit and make the diver even harder to detect. Camouflage is positioned primarily on forward-facing surfaces.

Optimum smoothness 

Smooth outer coating improves movement through the water for slicker, more efficient diving.

Reinforced stress pad on the top specifically designed not to cause turbulence.

Beuchat, inventor of the isothermal wetsuit 

Georges Beuchat creator of the company was an emblematic pioneer of underwater activities. He naturally tried to protect himself from the cold during diving. This is the way that after several experimentations, led in the creeks of Marseille, he invents in 1953 the isothermal wetsuit.

This fundamental invention has played a key role in the development of underwater activities. And more than sixty years later, its bases remain valid although materials and methods evolved.

Type

Two-piece suit for intensive free diving and spearfishing

Top with hood (5, 7 or 8mm)

5 or 7mm waist-cut pants

Super-supple Elaskin X10 neoprene for improved comfort and greater freedom of movement

Open cell neoprene interior for outstanding thermal protection

Cut

High quality pre-formed anatomical cut for maximum comfort

Special anatomical cut at the back to prevent the formation of water pockets on the back or between the shoulders

Seamless stretch panels at articulations to reduce friction (shoulders, knees and elbows).

Pre-formed to follow the curvature of the lower back and crotch for a snugger fitting suit

Pre-formed, crotch-piece ergonomically designed to avoid discomfort between the legs, with double clip closure

Resistance

Jersey crotch-panel on the top and between the legs of the pants designed to prevent wear resulting from friction between the thighs while swimming

Hood with Anti-Squeeze System,

The Anti-Squeeze System mitigates the suction effect in the ears and simplifies pressure equalisation during dives.

Optimum smoothness

Smooth outer coating improves movement through the water for slicker, more efficient diving

Reinforced stress pad on the top specifically designed not to cause turbulence

Thermal protection

The Espadon Elite offers a high degree of thermal protection

Combines the qualities of an open cell interior with a smooth outer skin

Open cell interior procures maximum warmth

Smooth outer skin offers excellent protection from the wind and dries fast, especially useful on boats and at the end of the dive session
