FOR THE PROGRESSIVE SWIMMER
The Orca 3.8 is the perfect choice for the Progressive Swimmer, who needs a boost in buoyancy. This wetsuit was designed with the goal of elevating the position of the triathlete in the water, with the most advanced buoyancy technologies on the market, Aerodome and Exo-cell; without compromising elasticity when it comes to swim strokes, with Yamamoto 40. The wetsuit you need to conquer the swimming portion.

The new 3.8 incorporates High Elbow Panel technology, which gives you more stability by keeping your elbow elevated with every stroke. After numerous biomechanical studies to improve stability, this Panel has been strategically placed to support, without limiting flexibility.
CORE LATERAL STABILIZER (CLS)
The Core Lateral is a system of panels located in the lower body that limits twisting, blocking your core. With this technology, you can maintain good technique for longer.
This sandwich-like technology provides 30% more buoyancy, with hundreds of air pockets between the neoprene layers.
Exo-cell technology is incorporated throughout the lower front panel, providing maximum buoyancy. This low-density material will bring your legs to an elevated horizontal position.
1.5-MM 40-CELL NEOPRENE
On top of providing maximum buoyancy, the 1.5-mm 40-cell neoprene in the shoulders, gives you the extra flexibility you need to keep from overloading your shoulders.
The lining in the neck area reduces the likelihood of chafing, while giving you extra comfort.
The lower leg panels, made with Yamamoto 39-cell SCS coating, reduce friction while swimming. HydroLite panels will make your transitions even faster as they make the wetsuit easier to remove.
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 0.88 Free technology has been developed with Yamamoto exclusively for Orca. Stretching this neoprene requires 90% less strength than conventional neoprene, with immediate recovery.
CORE LATERAL STABILISER (CLS) WITH EXO-CELL
CLS is a panel made from Exo-cell that provides lateral rigidity on the abdomen to strengthen your core and thus prevent twisting. This technology helps you maintain an effective technique longer, raising your lower trunk for better performance, thanks to its 5-mm thick side Exo-cell panels that provide 25% more buoyancy than the Aerodome.
Yamamoto 40 technology is the best neoprene on the market, not exclusive to Orca. Stretching this neoprene requires 72% less force than conventional neoprene.
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.
Aerodome 2 consists of small air cavities located between two layers of pre-treated neoprene which provides increased buoyancy. Unlike Exo-lift, the inner layer of this material is composed of a high-quality lining that gives the neoprene more elasticity. With only 3% water absorption, its buoyancy does not decrease throughout the workout.
HIGH ELBOW PANEL (HEP)
High Elbow Panel technology helps to keep your arm elevated before the grip phase, providing greater stability while swimming.
ULTIMATE SEAL COLLAR
The combination of laser cutting on the neck and the inverse Velcro reduces friction, preventing any abrasion on the skin.
FEEL THE WATER (FTW)
The Feel the Water panel (FTW) allows you to feel the water with every stroke, so you forget you’re wearing a wetsuit.
