Orca Open Water Wetsuit
Orca's latest development for 2015 is the introduction of Open Water Wetsuit. This suit was designed for people that are new to triathlon and open water swimming that need a suit that is both comfortable and safe for racing and training.
The wetsuit uses 2.5mm Yamamoto 39cell neoprene panels in places where you need warmth and extra floatation such as the stomach and legs and where you need ease of movement like around the arms and shoulders they use very supple 1.5mm thick Yamamoto 39cell neoprene panels.
VISIBILITY: High Visibility Neon orange arms allow you to be extremely visible in the open water - greatly increasing your feeling of security.
FLEXIBILITY: With a thickness of 1.5-2.5mm. Yamamoto neoprene all over, this suit is super flexible and warmth, giving you great freedom of movement in the open water.
VALUE: At such an affordable price point it removes one expensive barrier for open water swimming and triathlon.
Yamamoto 39cell: The balance between durability, buoyancy and flexibility.
It is an extremely flexible neoprene which supports an uninhibited natural swimming motion. 39cell extends to a 513% elongation rate, meaning this material is sure to move with you. Added benefits of zero water absorption and zero weight variation can mean only one thing: more speed. A fine balance between buoyancy and flexibility, 39cell is a durable material which will stand the test of time and distance, representing the best neoprene available in it’s class.
Lava Magazine: "This is the suit that caught our eye (literally), but surprised us the most, as it’s a whole new category product: the beginner with safety as a primary concern. Surprisingly we found it to perform nearly as well as Orca’s best suits, with greater durability."
Triathlete Magazine: "At this price point, it's amazing value."
