Orca Women's Predator Wetsuit Wetsuits
Orca Women's Predator Wetsuit WetsuitsHIGHLIGHTS 0.88 FREE TECHNOLOGY At just 0.88mm thick, the 0.88 Free Material used on the sleeves, underarms and now upper back of the Predator make it feel like you're not even wearing a wetsuit - with total freedom throughout every phase of your stroke. Titanium coating on this super flexible material provides thermal protection for your arms to regulate your temperature. EXOLIFT WITH AERODOME The unique sandwiching of Exo-Lift technology and the super buoyant Aerodome neoprene on the lower front and back of the suit provides the ultimate lift where it's most needed. These panels have no lining and so don't absorb water and so the level of buoyancy offered remains unchanged no matter how long you've been in the water. CORE LATERAL STABILIZER (CLS) Using a less flexible material on the core panels to stabilise the body. The suit feels stiff but once in the water it gives the feeling of swimming on a surfboard - greatly improving your body position and so also your speed. Technologies YAMAMOTO The Yamamoto Corporation is the worldâ€™s main supplier of high-performance neoprene. Its seal represents quality, technology and innovation. 44 CELL Yamamoto Corporation is regarded as the worldâ€™s top producer of neoprene for triathlon wetsuits in the world, and its 44cell neoprene is the pinnacle for flexibility, suppleness, fit and comfort. Orca uses 1.5mm panels of Yamamoto 44cell neoprene in the key underarm area of the Predator to compliment the super stretchy 0.88 Free arms-providing you with a wetsuit swimming experience never felt before. 0.88 FREE 0.88 Free is a revolutionary material developed by Orca. The five layer construction combined with a patented heat reflective Titanium coating is the secret behind the extraordinarily high insulation effect in such a lightweight material. This results in extreme stretch and flexibility, high buoyancy and insulation as well as low drag in the water. 0.88 Free really is the ultimate weapon for speed in the water. CLS The Core Lateral Stabilizer (CLS) system is a revolutionary new feature that provides body alignment assistance. The effect of 5mm Exo-Cell side panels alongside the 4mm Exo-Lift front panel is that of a flotation device - stabilising the core by preventing lateral movement without restricting rolling. The result is an effortlessly streamlined body position, allowing less fatigue and so a faster time in the water. HYDROLITE HydroLite panels make transition that extra bit faster using the super fast SCS (Nano ICE in the Predator) which combined with a special lining which absorbs less water to improve buoyancy while also being extremely sleek -making the suit fast to remove in transition saving you precious seconds. NANO ICE Super Composite Skin (SCS) has become the benchmark for coating the smoothskin neoprene used in triathlon wetsuits, to reduce friction and increase speed through the water. Orca uses Yamamoto Corporationâ€™s latest Nano SCS for an even lower drag coefficient, ensuring the fastest swim possible. The underwater coefficient of dynamic friction of the Nano SCS is 0.026 in comparison to 4.0 of regular neoprene. Less friction = more speed! Nano ICE is the latest upgrade to Nano SCS and is an Orca exclusive. TIME TO SUIT UP - The Orca Swim Scale Based on common errors in swim technique Orca has identified patterns that have been repeated by triathletes over the years. According to these behaviour patterns, theyâ€™ve have identified three types of triathlon swimmers; Natural, Progressive and Total. Total swimmers make only small mistakes and this is often found in their kicking technique, A little extra buoyancy helps solve this by raising the legs for a more effective horizontal position. For each type of Swimmer Orca has two suits, each at varying price points. Total swimmer includes the Predator and the Sonar wetsuit. The predator includes Orcaâ€™s 0.88 material combined with CLS technology which improves stability and prevents twisting and snaking in the water. In addition, its Exo-lift technology, a revolutionary multi-layer material used on the lower trunk, limits elasticity in the leg area to help prevent bending at the knees when kicking. The panels in the lower trunk, around the hips, bottom and thighs, feature back-to-back panels of neoprene with no lining. This means there is no water absorption into the lining which provides consistent buoyancy however far you swim. Flexibility 96% Buoyancy 94% Hydrodynamic 100%
