If you’re looking for the most flexible entry-level open water swimming wetsuit to help you transition from pool swimming to open water.

FLEXIBILITY - 1.5mm arms and shoulders combined with the superior InfinitySkin lining allows this suit to achieve a range of motion and flexibility previously associated only with intermediate level wetsuits.

BUOYANCY - An enlarged front panel of 4mm SCS 39cell Yamamoto neoprene combined with a 4mm lower back panel provides buoyancy and refines body positioning in the water.

SPEEDY TRANSITIONS - A larger jersey panel at the back of the legs makes this suit super quick to get of in transition, saving you time where it counts.

39CELL - 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 it’s class.

SCS - Acting as a coating over closed-cell neoprene, Super Composite Skin (SCS) has become the benchmark for coating the smoothskin neoprene used in triathlon wetsuits, to reduce friction and increase speed through the water. The micro-cell structure of the SCS coating repels water when in contact with air and reduces surface resistance when in contact with water.

HYDROLITE - HydroLite panels make transition that extra bit faster using the super fast SCS which 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.

INFINITY SKN - It’s what’s on the inside that counts and Orca’s unique InfinitySkn lining plays an integral part in the unbelieveable flexibility of our top end wetsuits. Constructed from a high stretch nylon, InfinitySkn is strategically placed where ultimate stretch is required and allows the wetsuit to move dynamically through your swim stroke.
