The Athlex Flex is a new (r)evolution of the Orca Equip.
The new Athlex Flex triathlon wetsuit offers a combination of high elasticity and neutral buoyancy, for swimmers who are able to maintain a good position in the water without added buoyancy. The thin material in the upper body and medium-weight material in the legs result in a wetsuit that provides maximum freedom of movement.
With the Athlex Flex, you can swim without restriction and with total freedom of movement in your next triathlon. Thanks to the materials in the shoulder, arm, and back areas, the wetsuit has a high level of elasticity in the upper body.
If you've mastered your swimming technique and have experience in open water, the neutral buoyancy of this wetsuit will allow you maintain your natural body position in the water so that you can give each stroke your all.
The materials used in this wetsuit have been treated with SCS technology which improves hydrodynamics. This helps increase your speed in the water so you can perform to your full potential in the swimming segment of your next triathlon race.
Neoprene can be damaged by excess salt or other chemicals such as chlorine if used in swimming pools. We recommend washing your wetsuit with plenty of water after use. A small amount of neutral pH soap can be used and then rinsed out afterwards.
Once clean, be sure to prevent it from holding on to too much moisture. Air dry it outside or in a ventilated indoor space, somewhere without direct exposure to sunlight as this can damage its materials.
Storing your wetsuit properly keeps the materials and seams from creasing and being strained for long periods of time. It also prevents the material from wrinkling, which can affect both the wetsuit's durability and appearance.
The best way to store a wetsuit is to hang it draped from its waist, so that the most delicate areas such as the shoulders and arms do not have any tension on them.
For wetsuits with very flexible shoulders, (Apex Flex or Apex Flow) it is important not to place them on a hanger from the shoulder area, as this will degrade the elasticity over time. For the rest of the models, a wide hanger can be used, as long as the wetsuit is not strained in the shoulder or neck area.
