Orca Women's Apex Flex Wetsuit - 2022
The Apex Flex wetsuit is the most flexible of the entire Orca range. It is designed for the most technical swimmers, those who benefit from more flexibility and do not need extra buoyancy. The construction of the short, inverted zipper allows for a more elastic design. This, in combination with the most flexible materials on the market with the most hydrodynamic properties, make it the fastest wetsuit for the best open water swimmers.
44+: Orca's high-end range combines exclusive Yamamoto 44 technology with high-elasticity Infinity Skin 2 lining to provide maximum freedom of movement to the shoulders. For improved hydrodynamics, a Nano Ice SCS coating is used, which reduces water resistance for increased speed. The inner lining incorporates bamboo fibers for more flexibility with each stroke, in addition to reducing odor and preventing the growth of bacteria. This combination provides total flexibility in the shoulders of high-end Orca wetsuits. The material requires 90% less force to stretch than conventional neoprene.
40 FS: For maximum freedom of movement, elasticity and flexibility, Orca’s high-end range combines Yamamoto 40 technology with Infinity Skin 2 lining and Smoothskin surface finish. This composition provides the open water swimmer with complete range of motion in the shoulder area. The material requires 72% less force to stretch than any other conventional neoprene. Bamboo fibers in the inner lining provide flexibility with each stroke, in addition to reducing odor and preventing the growth of bacteria.
0.88 Free: 0.88 Free technology was developed with Yamamoto exclusively for Orca, with the goal of creating the most elastic material on the market today. The finest neoprene on the market is 0.5-mm thick and combines the best lining with a titanium coating for better thermal insulation. This revolutionary material is placed in the arms of the suit, providing needed compression to your arm muscles as well as maximum flexibility for bending your elbow with each swim stroke. A step forward in technology.
40 PF: The Power-fit compressive lining, along with Orca's high-end Yamamoto 40 technology, provides a perfect fit in the torso area, ensuring that water will not flow through the wetsuit. Nano Ice SCS coating improves hydrodynamics, reducing water resistance and allowing the open water swimmer to reach top speed with each stroke.
