There's a reason why Orca's Sonar has been top in its class of mid-range wetsuits for over five years. If you're serious about open-water swimming and want a step-up from an entry-level wetsuit, the Sonar is your answer. Its 4mm Aerodome neoprene panels contain hundreds of air cavities, providing over 30% greater buoyancy than standard equivalents. The Aerodome core stability panel covers the core area and the small of the back. Together, these panels lift the torso and core into the best possible swim position, lessening drag and improving stability. A 4mm hydrolift body panel adds even greater buoyancy. Extra panels in the shoulder and arm areas, and the multi-stretch inner lining enhance flexibility and range of movement.
The Orca is a perfect example of natural design. With every inch of its sleek, powerful body minutely attuned to the sea's rhythms, it roams the world's oceans as undisputed ruler. For a company set on achieving the pinnacle of performance in challenging environments, it's hard to envisage a better source of inspiration.
- Yamamoto 39-cell is an extremely flexible neoprene, which supports an uninhibited natural swimming motion. Yamamoto 39-cell neoprene extends to a 520% 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.
- Beneath the dimpled surface of Orca's Aerodome 39-cell neoprene are hundreds of air cavities, which provide 30% more buoyancy than normal 5mm neoprene. Aerodome panels are strategically placed around the heaviest parts of the body, lifting you into the optimum swimming position.
- Applied as a coating over closed-cell neoprene. The micro-cell structure of the SCS coating repels water when in contact with air and reduces surface resistance when in contact with water.
