The S6 wetsuit is the alternative to the 3.8 for the Progressive Swimmer. This type of swimmer needs extra buoyancy, so the S6 is designed to raise the triathlete in the water, without neglecting the stretch needed in the stroke. The perfect tool to keep you moving through the water.
Yamamoto 39cell is an extremely flexible neoprene that 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 that will stand the test of time and distance, representing the best neoprene available in its class.
The Yamamoto Corporation is the world’s main supplier of high-performance neoprene. Its seal represents quality, technology, and innovation.
Acting as a coating over closed-cell neoprene, Super Composite Skin (SCS) has become the benchmark for coating the smooth skin neoprene used in triathlon wetsuits, to reduce friction and increase speed through the water. The micro-cell structure of the SCS coating repels water when in contact with air and reduces surface resistance when in contact with water.
Exo-Cell is a unique sandwich-designed neoprene that provides over 25% more buoyancy than Aerodome.
HydroLite panels make the transition that extra bit faster using the super fast SCS (Nano ICE in the Predator) which is combined with a special lining that absorbs less water to improve buoyancy while also being extremely sleek –making the suit fast to remove in transition saving you precious seconds.
It’s what’s on the inside that counts and Orca’s unique InfinitySkn lining plays an integral part in the unbelievable flexibility of our top end wetsuits. Constructed from a high stretch nylon, InfinitySkn is strategically placed where ultimate stretch is required and allows the wetsuit to move dynamically through your swim stroke.
