The new Openwater SW wetsuit is the perfect combination of safety and technology. An openwater wetsuit with built-in technology that will increase the level of safety for swimmers at sea.
SMART: NFC IDENTIFICATION SYSTEM
The Openwater SW wetsuit features Emerid, a universal identification system using NFC/Contactless technology that instantly provides the athlete's information in the event of an accident or emergency.
SAFETY: RESTUBE READY
The wetsuit features a Restube Ready connector so you can attach the Restube buoy without a belt, which will keep it stable, preventing wear to your wetsuit. Note: This wetsuit does not include the Restube buoy.
The high visibility orange used in the design will make it easy to locate you at all times.
SUPPORT: THERMAL INSULATION
The 4 mm thickness of the abdominal area will provide the thermal insulation you need, helping you maintain an ideal body temperature throughout your journey.
SUPPORT: CONFIDENCE IN THE WATER
This thickness will also give you the buoyancy you need to feel comfortable and confident in the water.
The combination of different thicknesses of neoprene panels allows for a more elastic material to be placed in the arm area to increase flexibility in swim strokes. You'll be comfortable without the neoprene restricting your shoulders and arms.
Orca uses Yamamoto neoprene in all its products, a durable, lightweight and high-performance material. The construction of the panels and the combination of the various high-quality materials place our wetsuits at the forefront of the sector.
The Yamamoto 39 neoprene has high elasticity that allows it to be used in different areas of mid-range wetsuits. For fast, short-stroke movements, 35% less force is required than with conventional wetsuits. For slow, long-haul movements, 45% less force is required than with conventional wetsuits.
SUPER COMPOSITE SKIN (SCS)
The rest of the wetsuits in the Orca triathlon range include this treatment to guarantee optimal performance.
Hydrolite technology helps the wetsuit come off more easily, making transitions even faster.
INFINITY SKIN 2
The Infinity Skin 2 inner lining provides a feeling of absolute freedom. Designed from a highelasticity nylon incorporating bamboo fibers, this technology is used in the lining of our wetsuit to provide greater flexibility in every stroke. It maintains body heat longer and reduces bad odors and the presence of bacteria in your neoprene. It is also composed of natural and environmentally sustainable materials, to avoid skin irritation and to care for the environment.
ULTIMATE SEAL COLLAR
The combination of laser cutting on the neck and the inverse Velcro reduces friction, preventing any abrasion on the skin.
The Yamamoto 38-cell neoprene provides compression for a better fit. Neoprene Technologies.
Size and Fit Guide
- Wetsuits should feel snug on and you will probably feel that range of motion is slightly reduced, this is normal. However, make sure breathing doesn't feel restricted.
- Wetsuit fit should not be too loose. This would let water flow freely through the suit and would therefore lose all the benefits of the trapped water being warmed by your body.
- For a correct wetsuit fit, wrists, ankles and neck should be snug.
- The fit should not be too baggy in the underarm or leg area. Some bagginess at the small of the back is normal.
