Orca has designed the Equip wetsuit for the natural swimmer using a wide variety of high-end technologies and materials to create the perfect blend for a fast and free-moving wetsuit. The Equip has been created to provide an unmatched level of flexibility paired with buoyancy for the freedom every natural swimmer wants and needs to produce their best performance in the open water. The Equip has been fitted with 1.5 mm Yamamoto 39 panel material to allow for increased flexibility in the arms, allowing you to move through the water freely and in line with your natural swim stroke. The Yamamoto material built into the Equip provides a high-quality neoprene base along with the 39-panel material that allows the Equip to be adaptable, moulding to your body shape in order to move with you for every phase of your swim stroke, instead of restricting your movement with a rigid mould. The Equip has also been designed using Super Composite Skin technology that is engineered to reduce drag when underwater, meaning you experience less friction when swimming in the Equip, allowing you to swim faster. HYDROLITE technology has been built into the Equip wetsuit to ensure you can have a quick transition on race day, allowing for a speedy removal. To finish off the Equip, Orca used Infinity Skin lining to make your swim stroke longer, allowing you to swim further using less energy.
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 a 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.
