Orca – Predator Men’s Wetsuit – 2021
Orca’s most advanced wetsuit yet – the result of its 25 years at the forefront of triathlon wear innovation.
Orca claims this suit to be its most advanced wetsuit to date.
The new Orca Predator men’s wetsuit is ideal for swimmers wanting the optimal mix of buoyancy and flexibility. Designed for the Total Swimmer, the latest Orca Predator makes you the most efficient swimmer you can be, by optimising the buoyancy in your legs and helping your upper body be as flexible as possible.
By lifting your hips, the suit helps your entire body find the perfect swim position, reducing resistance against the water as much as possible. The Orca Predator harnesses the most advanced technology for greater performance.
0.88 FREE: 0.88 Free technology was developed with Yamamoto exclusively for Orca, with the goal of creating the most elastic material on the market today. The finest neoprene on the market is 0.5mm thick and is combined with the best lining with a titanium coating for better thermal insulation. This revolutionary material is placed in the arms of the suit, providing needed compression to your arm muscles as well as maximum flexibility for bending your elbow with each swim stroke. Orca says this is a step forward in wetsuit material technology.
EXO-LIFT: This sandwich-type construction combines a neoprene layer, Aerodome technology and a third interior layer of neoprene which is treated specifically to make the Predator even more durable, achieving maximum buoyancy and zero water absorption. So you get a little boost to help you maintain a hydrodynamic position at all times, even when you’re tired.
AERODOME: This new technology, applied to the lower body, gives you 30% more buoyancy. The secret is in its construction: there are hundreds of pockets located between two layers of pre-treated neoprene. Unlike Exo-lift, the inner layer of this material is composed of a high-quality lining that gives the neoprene more elasticity. Orca utilises this material in specific areas, depending on the needs of the swimmer, in order to facilitate proper rotation.
CORE LATERAL STABILISER (CLS): CLS consists of a panel that helps keep your abdomen rigid in order to strengthen your core and prevent twisting. This technology helps you to maintain an effective technique for longer, thanks to its 5mm-thick side panels.
YAMAMOTO 44: This material, exclusive to Orca, is Yamamoto’s most elastic neoprene, made to a thickness of 1.5mm. This flexible material enables a smaller zipper to be used than on the rest of the wetsuits on the market. This smaller closure causes less restriction and improves the suit’s water-tightness. The new Predator incorporates Yamamoto 44 technology in the shoulders for a perfect fit with maximum freedom of movement in the shoulders.
ZERO CHAFING: The new Predator features Velcro on the wetsuit’s exterior zipper flap which, combined with the laser cutting used in the neck seam, reduces friction and prevents chafing.
SPEED: The lower leg panels, made with Yamamoto 40-cell SCS Nano coating, reduce friction through the water. HydroLite panels also make the suit easier to remove, so that your transitions can be even faster.
YAMAMOTO: The Yamamoto Corporation is the world’s main supplier of high-performance neoprene. Its seal represents quality, technology and innovation.
0.88 FREE: 0.88 Free technology has been developed together with Yamamoto exclusively for Orca, with the aim of producing the most elastic material available today. The construction of five layers of neoprene, combined with a warm, reflective titanium skin, is the secret to achieving the great thermal insulation of this lightweight material. The thinnest wetsuit on the market at only 0.5mm thick, it combines the best lining with a layer of titanium to provide better thermal insulation. This revolutionary material is fitted in the suit’s arms, and helps to compress your arm muscles as well as giving you maximum flexibility for bending at your elbow with every swim stroke.
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 5mm-thick side Exo-cell panels that provide 25% more buoyancy than the Aerodome.
44 CELL: This material, exclusively from Orca, is Yamamoto’s most elastic version of wetsuit material, with a thickness of 1.5mm. The use of this flexible element makes it possible to use a smaller zip than is found on the rest of the wetsuits in the market. A smaller zip is less restrictive and improves the water-tight properties of your gear.
HYDROLITE: The HydroLite panels help the wetsuit come off easier, for faster transitions. This technology, combined with the SCS coating, helps the water slide off your wetsuit, without permeating it, considerably improving your hydrodynamics.
NANO ICE: This innovative technology, exclusively from Orca, provides a low friction coefficient and ensures optimal hydrodynamics.
INFINITY SKIN: The inner Infinity Skin lining provides the feeling of absolute freedom. Designed based on a high-elasticity nylon that incorporates bamboo fibres, this technology is applied to the lining of our wetsuits to offer you greater flexibility with each stroke. This cloth maintains body heat longer, reduces body odour and the appearance of bacteria in your wetsuit. It is also made from natural eco-friendly materials to prevent the appearance of skin irritation and care for the environment.
AERODOME 2: This new technology applied to the lower trunk area provides 30% greater buoyancy for swimmers. The secret lies in its composition: hundreds of cavities located between two layers of previously treated neoprene. Unlike the Exo-lift, the inner layer of this material is made up of a high-quality lining that gives the wetsuit greater elasticity. Orca uses this material in the areas with the greatest body weight to raise you up to an optimal position in the water.
