The Orca Men’s Openwater Perform FINA is the first Orca wetsuit with FINA (Fédération Internationale de Natation) certification. This wetsuit has been designed with very technically adept swimmers in mind, who are looking for the most flexibility, a neutral buoyancy and thermal insulation to compete in open water.
FINA APPROVED; This wetsuit is the first to have FINA’s certification, meaning it has passed the exhaustive tests performed by FINA before they approve products. It can therefore be used in official FINA open water competitions..
YAMAMOTO 40; Yamamoto 40 is used in the shoulders and back together with the Infinityskin lining. This material can stretch by up to 130%, more than double its original size, providing maximum performance in your swim stroke. For the wide range of movements that occur in the shoulders, it offers 72% less resistance than a conventional wetsuit..
THERMAL INSULATION; The torso features Yamamoto 39 technology which ensures sufficient thermal insulation for competitions. Its 3 mm thickness together with the infinityskin lining ensure 77% more protection than if you did not wear a wetsuit.
Orca uses Yamamoto neoprene in all its products, a durable, lightweight and high-performance material. The construction of the panels and the combination of the various high-quality materials place our wetsuits at the forefront of the sector.
Yamamoto 40 technology is the best neoprene on the market, not exclusive to Orca. Stretching this neoprene requires 72% less force than conventional neoprene.
The Yamamoto 39 neoprene has high elasticity that allows it to be used in different areas of mid-range wetsuits. For fast, short-stroke movements, 35% less force is required than with conventional wetsuits. For slow, long-haul movements, 45% less force is required than with conventional wetsuits.
