The Orca Equip wetsuit has been designed to offer high-quality features usually seen on higher priced items but at an incredible value in this male-specific fit. Yamato 39 is the go-to material now used on great quality wetsuits and the Equip is no different. Yamamoto helps to heighten the position at which your body sits in the water meaning that as you go through the water you do so with less water drag and higher efficiency. The super composite skin coating used on the Equip also helps the suit to glide through the water with enhanced hydrodynamics so much so Orca research has found the water drag of the Equip to be at 0.026 rather than 4.0 compared to other wetsuits and brands. Hydrolite panels found on the arms and legs on the suit help to reduce transition times as they help to get the suit off faster. All in all, a fantastic suit at a fantastic price with more technologies used that we could go on about here.
The Infinity Skin interior lining is used throughout the wetsuit, providing a feeling of complete freedom. The arms, only 1.5mm thick, give the unprecedented flexibility of a top of the range wetsuit.
The buoyancy offered by this wetsuit, with 39-cell SCS, keeps your position raised and horizontal without affecting your swimming technique. It is perfectly buoyant, maintaining the thermal insulation that you need.
The wetsuit´s Yamamoto front panel coated with 39-cell SCS reduces friction while you are swimming. HydroLite panels help make the wetsuit easier to remove so that your transitions are even faster.
The inclusion of these technologies, properly applied, creates a more lightweight feel while you are swimming. Ideal for swimmers who feel less comfortable using a wetsuit.
Now you can enjoy your new Equip Men's Wetsuit in different colours and designs.
The Yamamoto Corporation is the world’s main supplier of high-performance neoprene. Its seal represents quality, technology and innovation.
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)
Super Composite Skin (SCS) is the leading triathlon wetsuit lining because of its capacity to reduce friction and to provide the best possible hydrodynamics. Orca uses the most innovative version of Nano SCS, developed by the Yamamoto company, to ensure top speed in the water. The friction coefficient in the water of Orca’s Nano SCS is 0.026, as compared to an average of 4.0 for the other wetsuits.
The HydroLite panels help the wetsuit come off easier, for faster transitions. This technology, combined with the SCS coating, helps the water slide off your wetsuit, without impregnating it, considerably improving your hydrodynamics.
The inner Infinity Skin lining provides the feeling of absolute freedom. Designed based on a high-elasticity nylon that incorporates bamboo fibres, this technology is applied to the lining of our wetsuits to offer you greater flexibility with each stroke. This cloth maintains body heat longer, reduces body odour and the appearance of bacteria in your wetsuit. It is also made from natural eco-friendly materials to prevent the appearance of skin irritation and care for the environment.
