The 2017 Orca S6 triathlon wetsuit is an ideal wetsuit for the swimmer looking for extra buoyancy. The Orca S6 is the entry-level option among Orca's competition-ready wetsuits and includes a number of features that can help you swim better.
Built from Yamamoto 39cell neoprene, the Orca S6 is able to be extremely flexible and supports a natural swimming motion. The neoprene in the Orca S6 wetsuit offers zero water absorption and zero weight variation, and a fine balance between buoyancy and flexibility.
The Orca S6 has 2 millimeter Yamamoto panels in the forearms, shoulders, and arms to maximize mobility and flexibility.
5 millimeter panels are used on the hips and legs to improve buoyance in the lower parts of the wetsuit to help you improve your swimming position. 3 millimeter thick panels cover the chest area to help improve comfort and to help prevent your body from rolling too much when turning to breathe.
The collar lining on the Orca S6 reduces friction at the neckline to help reduce chafing. The smooth material also feels better on the skin, making it more comfortable to the touch.
The Orca S6 triathlon wetsuit has a Super Composite Skin coating, also known as SCS, that reduces friction and helps increase speed. Its micro-cell structure repels water, improving hydrodynamics. Orca uses the most innovative version of Nano SCS that allows Orca wetsuits to ensure top speed in the water.
The Orca S6 also features an inner lining they call Infinity Skin. It was designed based on high-elasticity nylon that incorporates bamboo fibers, offering greater flexibility with each swim stroke. This cloth also maintains body heat longer, helps reduce odor and bacteria, and is made from eco-friendly materials to prevent skin irritation.
The Orca S6 triathlon wetsuit is available with and without sleeves, with the sleeveless version being a little less expensive than the full-sleeve option.
If you're looking for a dependable wetsuit that maximizes buoyancy and value, the Orca S6 was built for you.
