2010 Orca Alpha Female
The Orca Alpha offers a wetsuit swim like you’ve never experienced before. You get amazing flexibility, fit and comfort from the Yamamoto #40 Cell neoprene, which has been shaped for maximum stretch across the wetsuit, while the Nano SCS coating generates increased speed and buoyancy. At the heart of Alpha’s unbelievable flexibility is the FreeStroke 3 System, which comprises of three unique 1.5mm panels, each designed to address a key area of the stroke phase. The seamless FreeWing panel runs from the lateral area, through the underarm and across the chest for incredible reach through the entry and catch phase of the stroke. During the pull-through phase of the stroke the FreeFlex back panel allows the trapezius and latissimus muscles to work unhindered, driving you through the water. The FreeFly arm panel is integral in limiting resistance on the deltoids, reducing the effort required in the recovery phase of the stroke. Meanwhile, what lies beneath is just as important. The 4 Way Free Stretch lining is constructed from a high stretch nylon, allowing the wetsuit to move dynamically with the wearer. The Alpha also features Orca’s new AquaTread forearm panel. 3mm neoprene has been pressed into a tyre tread-like surface, to grab at the water. The panel has also been moulded to increase the water catchment area, increasing power with each stroke. 5mm panels of Yamamoto’s latest AeroDome neoprene have been placed on the front and rear of the torso, using hundreds of internally crafted air cavities to generate 30% more buoyancy. Balancing buoyancy with flexibility, the 3mm Core Xtension sector is used across the chest to allow for full body rotation and reach through each stroke.
