Orca Sonar 2018

£299.00

Description

FLEXIBILITY The new SuperStretch lining combined with thinner InfinitySkn 1.5mm arms mean that the Sonar is now even more flexible through the full rotation of the stroke -allowing for freedom of movement not previously seen in this intermediate level suit.
BUOYANCY The placement of 4mm Aerodome 2 in the lower back of the suit helps to lift the body into the most efficient swimming position.
ADAPTABILITY Male and female specific front buoyancy panels mean that the optimum buoyancy balance for different body shapes can now be achieved
SPEED SCS coated Yamamoto neoprene is used in special Hydrolite panels in the ankles of the suit combined with a stretchy lining that absorbs less water to improve buoyancy and is super sleek, making the Sonar even faster to remove in transition.

Key Features

Yamamoto
YAMAMOTO
The Yamamoto Corporation is the world’s main supplier of high performance neoprene. Its seal represents quality, technology and innovation.


39 CELL
Yamamoto 39cell is an extremely flexible neoprene which supports an uninhibited natural swimming motion. 39cell extends to a 513% elongation rate, meaning this material is sure to move with you. Added benefits of zero water absorption and zero weight variation can mean only one thing: more speed. A fine balance between buoyancy and flexibility, 39cell is a durable material which will stand the test of time and distance, representing the best neoprene available in it’s class.


SCS
Acting as a coating over closed-cell neoprene, Super Composite Skin (SCS) has become the benchmark for coating the smoothskin neoprene used in triathlon wetsuits, to reduce friction and increase speed through the water. The micro-cell structure of the SCS coating repels water when in contact with air and reduces surface resistance when in contact with water. Less friction = more speed!


INFINITY SKIN
It’s what’s on the inside that counts and Orca’s unique InfinitySkin lining plays an integral part in the unbelievable flexibility of our top end wetsuits. Constructed from a high stretch nylon, InfinitySkin is strategically placed where ultimate stretch is required and allows the wetsuit to move dynamically through your swim stroke.


SUPER STRETCH
The all-new SuperStretch lining featured on the chest of the Sonar is a light weight lining that is super stretchy due to it’s makeup and the way it has been knitted. It absorbs little water, meaning the panel stays more buoyant and contributes to making the chest really stretchy for unrestricted breathing.


AERODOME 2
Beneath the dimpled surface of Orca’s Aerodome 39-cell neoprene are hundreds of air cavities, which provide 30% more buoyancy than normal 5mm neoprene. Aerodome panels are strategically placed around the heaviest parts of the body, lifting you into the optimum swimming position. Aerodome 2 is an upgrade that uses a new lining to increase flexibility and comfort.

Total Swimmer

Your technique is good. Your stroke and position are okay, but you sometimes make small mistakes related to your kicking technique. You’re looking for a wetsuit that meets your needs: maximum freedom in the upper body and extra flotability that helps you achieve a more effective and hydrodynamic horizontal position.

When what you’re looking for is the complete solution
A wetsuit that adapts technology and design, according to the swimmer’s needs: flexibility and flotability, where you most need it.

Total Movement
Maximum flexibility in the upper body that will not limit your movements or your technique.

A little help
Extra flotability in the lower body will enable you to maintain a horizontal posture, even when you’re tired.
