Fast and durable, the Alpha is also one of the most flexible suits on the market.

 

The Product:

The Orca Alpha Women's Fullsleeve wetsuit is comfortable and extremely flexible due to the 0.88mm arms. The buoyancy dots add lift in the water whilst the Nano technology reduces drag, improving your overall efficiency. The high quality Yamamoto neoprene is very durable and the attractive, eye-catching design on the suit will help you stand out in the water.

 The Alpha is designed to help your swimming technique and improve your movement through the water. 

 

 

Key Features:

 

  • A fit specifically for women.
  • 5 mm Exo-cell Buoyancy Dots on the lower back provide extra buoyancy.
  • 0.88 free arm and underarm panels - create ultimate flexibility to compliment your stroke.
  • 2 millimetre SCS treated neoprene collar for added comfort.
  • Nano SCS treatment to help you glide through the water
  • Hydrolite panels on the arms and legs help you remove the suit quickly in transition.

 

 

Awarded 4.5 stars by 220 magazine - "Aimed at more advanced swimmers, the emphasis is on flexibility and freedom of movement rather than support."

ORCA'S TECHNOLOGIES

Yamamoto 

YAMAMOTO

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

 

0.88 FREE

0.88 Free is a revolutionary material developed by Orca. The five layer construction combined with a patented heat reflective Titanium coating is the secret behind the extraordinarily high insulation effect in such a lightweight material. This results in extreme stretch and flexibility, high buoyancy and insulation as well as low drag in the water. 0.88 Free really is the ultimate weapon for speed in the water.

 

EXO-CELL

Exo-Cell is a unique sandwich-designed neoprene that provides over 25% more buoyancy than Aerodome. Panels of Exo-Cell are used in strategic panels on the Predator, Alpha and 3.8 to optimise swimming position.

 

40 CELL

Yamamoto’s 40cell neoprene is the penultimate for flexibility, suppleness, fit and comfort. Second only to 44cell by the narrowest of margins and located in key high stretch areas on the Predator, Alpha and 3.8 suits, these panels contribute to providing a wetsuit swimming experience of the highest level.

 

NANO SCS

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. Orca uses Yamamoto Corporation’s latest Nano SCS for an even lower drag co-efficient, ensuring the fastest swim possible. The underwater co-efficient of dynamic friction of the Nano SCS is 0.026 in comparison to 4.0 of regular neoprene. Less friction = more speed!

 

HYDROLITE

HydroLite panels make transition that extra bit faster using the super fast SCS (Nano ICE in the Predator) which combined with a special lining which absorbs less water to improve buoyancy while also being extremely sleek -making the suit fast to remove in transition saving you precious seconds.

 

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 their 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.

Orca Alpha ladies wet suit

Lovely feel to this suit, arms are very flexible. very soft all round. Neck felt tight but no problem in the water, comfortable and so easy to get off. Would recommend this for good swimmers but not in the cold.
