After 25 years of innovation in the triathlon industry, ORCA is launching its most advanced wetsuit ever. The new Predator is ideal for swimmers who are seeking the perfect balance between buoyancy and flexibility. Designed for the Total Swimmer, it achieves the highest possible efficiency by pinpointing buoyancy in your legs and providing flexibility in your upper body. It elevates your hip to correctly position your entire body, reducing hydrodynamic restriction as much as possible. The most advanced technology for greater performance.
Yamamoto is the leading manufacturer of high-performance neoprene used in the sport of triathlon. Yamamoto stands for quality, technology and innovation.
0.88 Free is a new material developed and used exclusively by Orca. The secret is a 5-layer construction with a patented titanium surface coating, which for the first time ever provides perfect insulation for a lightweight material. As a result, you won't feel a thing - swim as if you weren't wearing a wetsuit, but warm and with the fastest surface available. 0.88 Free is the ultimate weapon for fast swims.
Core Lateral Stabiliser (CLS) with Exo-Cell
CLS is an Exo-cell fabric that helps to increase lateral stabilization on the lower body and strengthen the core area to prevent snake movement. Thanks to this technology, the swimmer manages to maintain his sophisticated technique for longer by lifting the lower body by means of 5 mm thick side panels made of Exocell, resulting in 25% more buoyancy compared to Aerodome technology.
This material, developed exclusively for Orca by Yamamoto, is the most elastic neoprene with a thickness of 1.5 mm. This extremely flexible material allows the use of smaller zippers than other wetsuits on the market. In this way, we can reduce friction and increase the waterproofness of the suit.
The HydroLite panels help wipe the neoprene off more quickly for even faster transitions. This technology, together with the SCS technology, allows for better gliding in the water without the neoprene absorbing it, which significantly improves hydrodynamics.
This innovative technology, used exclusively on Orca, offers a low friction coefficient and guarantees optimal hydrodynamics.
The inner lining Infinity Skin gives a feeling of absolute freedom. The lining consists of a highly elastic nylon base with bamboo fibres and results in a particularly high elasticity of the neoprene with every stroke of the arm. The fabric maintains body temperature longer and prevents both unpleasant body odour and the formation of bacteria in the neoprene. In addition, it is made of natural, sustainable materials which at the same time prevent skin irritation and protect the environment.
This new technology is applied to the lower body and leads to 30% more buoyancy when swimming. Its secret is its composition: hundreds of small cavities between two layers of neoprene that have been treated accordingly. Unlike the Exo-lift, the bottom layer here is made up of a high-quality lining that gives the neoprene more elasticity. Orca uses this material in the areas of higher body weight to achieve an optimally elevated posture.
