The Orca Men’s Athlex Flex wetsuit offers a combination of high elasticity and medium buoyancy, for swimmers who are able to maintain a good position in the water without added buoyancy. The thin materials in the upper body and those of medium thickness in the legs result in a wetsuit that provides maximum freedom of movement. .
· Flexability – 39+- The increased flexibility of Yamamoto 39 neoprene, combined with the high elasticity of Inifinty Skin 2 lining, provides open water swimmers with maximum freedom of movement. Thanks to this combination, 35% less force is required in fast movements than in conventional neoprene. For slow movements and wider strokes, 45% less force is required than in conventional neoprene. SCS coating also
helps reduce friction and water resistance, improving hydrodynamics and increasing speed.
· Compression – 38+ Yamamoto 38 provides more compression for a better fitting wetsuit,
for greater comfort when swimming in open water. For greater hydrodynamics, SCS coating is used which reduces water resistance, increasing speed.
· Elasticity– 39 FS Elasticity, maximum flexibility and total freedom of movement are brought together thanks to the combination of Yamamoto 39 neoprene, Infinity Skin 2 lining and Smoothskin surface finish. With this combination, the open water swimmer will use 35% less force in fast movements and short strokes, while slower and wider movements will require 45% less force than any other conventional neoprene.
