The Category 3 is constructed with advanced 100% Yamamoto 38 Cell Nano SCS Rubber, which is super sleek and flexible. Besides the fabric, the suit boasts many of the same cutting-edge features as the Category 5 and Freak of Nature suits, but at a fraction of the cost. Features include elevation panels, alpha catch panels, speed wrap paneling, ROM zones, anti-microbial lining and quick-release ankle and wrist cuffs.
Yamamoto Nano-SCS Rubber – The Yamamoto neoprene gives you a coveted second-skin feel with ultimate flexibility, while the built-in Nano-SCS coating provides a sleek swim and an ultralow drag coefficient.
Elevation Panels – Advanced Panels elevate the swimmer and ensure optimal body positioning and maximum buoyancy and speed. Muscle groups are specifically targeted for core stabilization and long-term preservation of core strength.
Alpha Catch Panels – Panels are strategically engineered on the forearm to allow for a maximized catch-and-release stroke. An insulated, thinner layer lies underneath to allow a feel for the water.
Form-Fitting, Quick Release Ankle/Wrist Cuffs – Form-fitting wrist and ankle cuffs allow powerful strokes and kicks, while preventing water from entering the suit. An upgraded triangular wrist design with greater elasticity allows for an even quicker and easier removal to keep you ahead of the pack during T1.
Speed Wrap Paneling and Free Range of Motion Zones – Lightweight panels wrap and curve around entire leg, chest and core area to give you the feeling of second skin, while maximizing body position and minimizing drag. To further achieve the second skin feeling, strategically placed free ROM zones eliminate constrictions, allowing the swimmer to achieve a long reach without straining shoulders.
Anti-Microbial Lining – Anti-microbial lining provides superior odor protection and long lasting freshness.
