‘It’s all about FLEXIBILTY ’ is the message that Yonda is shouting loud.
The GHOST wetsuit is Yonda’s flagship product, created by materials expert Angus Greenwood and British Pro triathlete, Mark Buckingham. Yonda’s GHOST features Yamamoto’s super composite skin (SCS) centralising the athlete’s core and raising their hips. The skin repels water when in contact with air and minimises surface resistance when in contact with water. This allows for a natural body roll when extending the arms into the catch and pull.
Buoyancy and technique - Yamamoto #40 SCS Skin AQUAPULL is used in the sleeve, wrist and underarm areas for greater flexibility – this is super thin permeable fabric that is married to FASTDRY waterproof Lycra in the forearm. This creates a great feel in the water and makes the catch point more sensitive and allows for a stronger pull.
Incorporating Yamamoto #39 SCS AERODOME across the chest and thighs – smooth to the touch, the SCS coating reduces friction and increases your speed though the water. SCS dries quickly and is anti-bacterial, keeping your suit clean and hygienic. The super low resistance offered by SCS allows you to swim faster and achieve your true potential.
Vectorcatch - The innovative ‘VectorCatch’ forearm panels are used throughout the range. The hydrophobic VectorCatch Lycra fabric provides the right water sensitivity and gives you a feel for the water runs the full length of your forearm. The trademark Yonda colours ensure you stand out in the crowd and allow your supporters to spot you during the swim.
10K Collar - Designed for distance swimmers, Yonda’s ‘10k collar’ minimises neck rub without the need for the athlete to use additional lubricant. The GHOST wetsuit features a reverse style zipper, which eliminates the need for a bulky collar and prevents the suit being pulled open mid race. The cord is pulled down to fasten, allowing the athlete easy access to the zipper when they come to take the suit off.
Kickout Pannels - The GHOST features a ‘Kickout’ panel on the inside of the lower leg to maximise efficiency of suit removal at transition. The lower leg ‘Kickout’ fabric Yonda uses on the inside of the suit makes getting in and out of the suit very fast.
Superstretch - The ‘Superstretch’ side panels are where the suit gets its award winning shoulder flexibility. This is the most technical and high-grade neoprene on the suit and stretches down your rib cage and below the hip.
