Openwater Perform Women Wetsuit
The Openwater Perform is the first Orca wetsuit with FINA (Fédération Internationale de Natation) certification. This wetsuit has been designed with very technically adept swimmers in mind, who are looking for the most flexibility, a neutral buoyancy and thermal insulation to compete in open water.
FINA APPROVED This is the first wetsuit that has obtained FINA certification. This means that it has passed extensive testing by the Fédération Internationale De Natation (International Swimming Federation) and it can be used in official FINA open water competitions.
Thanks to the combination of high-elasticity technologies, such as Yamamoto 40+, you will enjoy total freedom of movement in your swimming competitions.
This wetsuit has been specially designed for experienced swimmers. While wearing it, you will not feel any interference in your swimming technique and you can make the most of your skills in the water.
Neoprene can be damaged by excess salt or other chemicals such as chlorine if used in swimming pools. We recommend washing your wetsuit with plenty of water after use. A small amount of neutral pH soap can be used and then rinsed out afterwards.
Once clean, be sure to prevent it from holding on to too much moisture. Air dry it outside or in a ventilated indoor space, somewhere without direct exposure to sunlight as this can damage its materials.
Storing your wetsuit properly keeps the materials and seams from creasing and being strained for long periods of time. It also prevents the material from wrinkling, which can affect both the wetsuit's durability and appearance.
The best way to store a wetsuit is to hang it draped from its waist, so that the most delicate areas such as the shoulders and arms do not have any tension on them.
For wetsuits with very flexible shoulders, (Apex Flex or Apex Flow) it is important not to place them on a hanger from the shoulder area, as this will degrade the elasticity over time. For the rest of the models, a wide hanger can be used, as long as the wetsuit is not strained in the shoulder or neck area.
