The Orca Sonar Wetsuit is ideal for a triathlete looking for top-of-the-line wetsuit at a lower price. The Orca Sonar is the most versatile option among Orca's competition-ready wetsuits that expertly balances flexibility and buoyance.
Built from Yamamoto 39cell neoprene, the Orca Sonar is able to be extremely flexible and supports a natural swimming motion. The Orca Sonar features Aerodome 2 technology in the lower trunk area, providing 30% greater buoyance in this area over the Orca S6, a lower priced option in the Orca lineup.
The chest of the Sonar features Orca's all-new SuperStretch lining that improves flexibility in the chest area and the collar lining on the Sonar 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 Sonar has a Super Composite Skin coating, also known as SCS, that improves hydrodynamics.
The Orca Sonar also features an inner lining they call Infinity Skin, which is designed to improve flexibility, reduce skin irritation, provide improved thermal protection, and reduce odor and bacteria.
If you're looking for a top-performing wetsuit that won't break the bank or looking for a wetsuit that minimizes restriction, the Orca Sonar is a wetsuit worthy of your attention.
- AERODOME 2
This technology, used in the lower body covering the quad and hip area, provides the swimmer with 30% more buoyancy. The secret is in its composition made up of hundreds of cavities between two treated layers of neoprene.
- CORE LATERAL STABILIZER (CLS)
This panel provides lateral support in the abdomen to avoid lateral movement and reinforce your core. With this technology, you will be able to maintain a good technique for longer.
- NO CHAFING
Velcro has been added to the outer flap of the wetsuit, which together with the laser cut used in the collar seam reduces friction and chafing.
A new feature in the new Sonar wetsuit is the addition of a thinner lower leg pannel, a Yamamoto composite with 39-cell nano SCS coating which reduces friction. In addition, HydroLite panels help make the wetsuit easier to remove so that your transitions are even faster.
Our experience has been that Orca wetsuits fit very accurately according to the size chart (seen on the Size Chart tab). Athletes with broader shoulders and larger arms may want to consider going one size up if flexibility is a concern.
