Orca designed the Sonar for the experienced swimmer who is looking for that extra boost to help raise the legs and provide maximum flexibility. Orca has managed to provide this through some key technologies: Aerodome 2, which through a two-layer neoprene design in the hip and quad area increases buoyancy by 30% as well as a core lateral stabiliser that helps to prevent lateral movement, improving efficiency at the centre of the suit. The suit was built with Yamamoto 39 cell neoprene which is the most reliable, durable and flexible wetsuit material currently available on the market. The super skin composite lining on the suit provides a natural glide, decreasing body-friction in the water and increasing overall speed.
Yamamoto 39 Cell Neoprene Technology
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 Skin Composite
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 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.
The all-new SuperStretch lining featured on the chest of the Sonar is a lightweight lining that is super stretchy due to its makeup and the way it has been knitted. It absorbs little water, meaning the panel stays more buoyant and contributes to making the chest really stretchy for unrestricted breathing.
This new technology applied to the lower trunk area provides 30% greater buoyancy for swimmers. The secret lies in its composition: hundreds of cavities located between two layers of previously treated neoprene. Unlike the Exo-lift, the inner layer of this material is made up of a high-quality lining that gives the wetsuit greater elasticity. Orca uses this material in the areas with the greatest body weight to raise you up to an optimal position in the water.
