    • Iroko wood

      Iroko wood is the wood of the Iroko tree that originates from Tropical Africa. Iroko wood is a hardwood; it is tough, dense, and very durable. It is light yellow in colour when freshly cut, turning to golden brown when exposed to light. It is often used as a Teak substitute, which it resembles both in colour and in grain. Sometimes it's even called Teak, but the Iroko is unrelated to the Teak family. Given the high prices of genuine Teak, Iroko could be considered a low-cost alternative. Iroko has an excellent strength-to-weight ratio. It has a strength that rivals that of Teak with a decay and insect resistant composition, which makes it particularly well-suited for a variety of outdoor applications. see: Epsealon Dark Matter speargun

    • Neoprene

      Neoprene is a family of synthetic rubbers. It was invented by DuPont scientists on April 17, 1930. Neoprene exhibits good chemical stability and maintains flexibility over a wide temperature range, it's tolerant of extreme conditions and resists degradation more than natural rubber and other synthetic rubbers. Foamed neoprene contains gas cells used as an insulation material. It is produced in open-cell form, and waterproof, less compressible and more expensive closed-cell form. Open cell foam has tiny cells which are not completely closed. The open cells are filled with air and this affects the way the foam feels and performs. Closed cell foam has cells which are sealed off so air doesn't get inside the structure at all. Foamed neoprene is soft, durable, flexible, and highly resistant to a variety of hazards, including ozone, sunlight, oxidation, air, water, and many chemicals. It have superior absorption, insulation and compressive properties than other rubbers. Nitrogen gas is most commonly used for the foaming of Neoprene foam due to its inertness, flame resistance, and large range of processing temperatures. Foamed neoprene is commonly used to make wetsuits because contained gas cells provide excellent insulation against cold. A recent advance in Neoprene for wetsuits is the "super-flex" variety, which mixes spandex into the neoprene for greater flexibility. Yamamoto Neoprene Unlike other Neoprene that is made from petroleum, Yamamoto Neoprene is manufactured out of limestone sourced from mountain ranges in Japan. It's more densely packed than other types of rubber: it has over 30% more air bubbles than the oil based Neoprene, which means there's less room for water to slip between the cracks and be absorbed by the suit. Yamamoto Neoprene boasts 99.7% water impermeability. Because of the tight cell structure and high nitrogen cell content , Yamamoto wetsuits are lighter, warmer, more streachable and more durable than wetsuits made of oil based Neoprene. Yamamoto Neoprene is widely regarded as the premier Neoprene on the market. Neoprene wetsuit care Chlorine accelerates the process of Neoprene wetsuit become old, brittle, and stiff. Do not use Neoprene wetsuit in pools. Neoprene wetsuit exposed to chlorine should be thoroughly rinsed in cold fresh water inside and out. Make sure that you are not washing it in hot water. Hot water will damage the Neoprene cells and cause it to lose its flexibility. Neoprene wetsuit should be rinsed in cold fresh water immediately after the dive in saltwater to prevent salt, minerals, and bacteria accumulated during the remain, crystallize and produce odors. Do not leave Neoprene wetsuit in the sun. UV rays cause the Neoprene to age much quicker, it gets hard and looses its flexibility. Neoprene wetsuit should not be stored folded. Keep it in a cool, dry place, on flat surface or wide coat hanger. Exposure to heat or compression can cause damage, shrinkage or loss of elasticity. Human urine is slightly acidic. It contains ammonia. Ammonia destroys Neoprene gas cells. Do not pee in Neoprene wetsuit.

    • Our Story | Neo Carbone Spearfishing

      Our Story IN AND OUT OF THE SEA „If you put your finger in the sea, you're connected to the whole world“ This old proverb shows the kind of relationship that the man and the sea have always had. I would like to add: "Dive into the sea and you will be connected to the whole world and with yourself." The sea and its depths captivated me since my childhood; my adoration deepened when I arrived at the coasts of the Adriatic, led down some strange paths of my life. The sea would sweep the fatigue away, bringing the relaxation and the infinite sense of happiness. To dive, meant to be released and left in a state of weightlessness, brought by this medium. Everyone who ever dived knows well that diving in the sea is not the same as diving in the fresh water. Not only is the body lighter because of the amount of salt in the water, but also the sense of freedom is undoubtedly greater in the immenseness of the sea. Since the dawn of time, we were able to enjoy the seafood, and in my case the sea has put together my two great passions. Diving and food. Freedom and pleasure. Hunter and the hunted. Being a culinary chef was not a choice for me. It was a calling; the profession chose me. The calling that, after all these years, brings me almost irreplaceable pleasure. And the sea was selflessly giving food. Therefore, in one single medium I got both - in the sea and out of the sea. A few years ago, I started collaborating with Epsealon that has been held to date. In the medium where humans did not adapt like other sea creatures that have gills, scales, dorsal and caudal fins and skin adapted to the sea, it is necessary to have a replacement. That is what I found in Epsealon wetsuits, fins and spearguns. The wetsuit becomes a second skin and the fins allow that unforgettable feeling of diving into the blue, while caring the speargun turns a man into a hunter in a blink of an eye. Spearfishing is in my opinion, the last “fair play” of hunting because both, the hunter and the catch have equal chances and the hunter has to show the best human side… to hunt what is allowed, big game hunting. In doing so, we will be able to preserve and to pass on the sea, which we inherited from our ancestors, to our descendants. After all, the sea has never been ours in the first place. By diving in Epsealon wetsuits, you may never become top divers, fishermen or excellent chefs, but you will be given a chance to make a first step towards an interesting journey. Even the longest journey starts with the first step. The sea, spearfishing and the equipment have helped me to put together two of my greatest passions and, in doing so, to end a circle. The circle that goes from diving into the freedom of seabed to enjoying in seafood. Enjoying in the fruits of your own catch, prepared with love. ​ To end a circle – that may be the most important thing in life. Someone once said: “Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.” That is the meaning of the word apnea, cessation of breathing. The passion for the sea and food I passed on to my daughter Tiana and we embarked on this family underwater adventure in “Neo Carbone” together. By choosing only the best equipment, we aim to transfer our fascination by the sea to the others and take you to the magic of a pleasant and safe dive, regardless of whether you are a top diver or just a beginner in love with the sea. Dive in and the sea will leave you breathless, literally and metaphorically speaking. Stephan Macchi
