TIME TO SUIT UP: NATURAL SWIMMER

 

NATURAL SWIMMER

Orca’s Natural Swimmer range is designed specifically for swimmers who have an efficient technique with no flaws. This type of swimmer also maintains a good horizontal and elevated position in the water. With such an effective position there is no need to add extra buoyancy and this type of swimmer will benefit most from extra flexibility.

By using the right materials Orca has helped triathletes achieve a sense of freedom in the water. They are also provided the necessary thermal insulation and floatability buoyancy required to make swimming even more comfortable.

 

 

Orca’s Natural Swimmer line includes the Alpha and Equip wetsuits. The first is the leading model designed for efficient swimmers who are often among the first out of the water. For the Alpha, Orca has created their game changing 0.88 material. This thin fabric, which is only 0.88mm thick, provides incredible flexibility and delivers the sensation of swimming without a wetsuit.

The composition of the 0.88 panels also includes titanium insulation that provides the necessary thermal protection. Orca uses SCS (Super Composite Skin) technology to coat the wetsuit, which makes it possible to
reduce the friction coefficient from 4.00 in the case of a normal wetsuit to 0.026 for those with the SCS coating, ensuring faster speeds and less energy consumption.


The Equip, in turn, is a comfortable elastic and more economical wetsuit. It features 1.5mm thick neoprene and has a specially designed neck area to prevent rubbing.
