Orca S7 Open Water Swimming Wetsuit 2021
For the progressive swimmer, who has recently started swimming and needs to polish their swimming technique while they get comfortable in the water the S7 wetsuit offers the buoyancy they need. Designed to raise the triathlete in the water, without neglecting the stretch needed in the stroke.
Use of 5mm thick Yamamoto high-performance neoprene in the lower legs and hips elevates your lower body in the water to improve swimming position and reduce drag. A 3mm chest and 2mm shoulder and arm panels deliver excellent flexibility to ensure the full range of movement throughout your swimming stroke.
Yamamoto 39cell 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 its class.
Super Composite Skin (SCS) is the benchmark coating for the smoothskin neoprene used in triathlon wetsuits, reducing friction and increasing your speed through the water. Nano SCS is the latest from Yamamoto to offer an even lower drag coefficient to help you deliver your fastest swim possible.
HydroLite panels make your transition that extra bit faster using the super fast SCS combined with a special lining which absorbs less water to improve buoyancy while also being extremely sleek –making the suit fast to remove in transition saving you precious seconds.
It’s what’s on the inside that counts and Orca’s unique InfinitySkn lining plays an integral part in the unbelievable flexibility of our top end wetsuits. Constructed from high stretch nylon, InfinitySkin is strategically placed where ultimate stretch is required and allows the wetsuit to move dynamically through your swim stroke.
