Features of the Orca S6 Mens Wetsuit 2016

Flexibility

2mm 39cell SCS coated Yamamoto underarm, shoulder and arm panels combined with a flexible Powerstretch lining provide a superb range of motion and improve flexibility.

Buoyancy

Orca S6 has 5mm SCS coated Yamamoto front panel and a 5mm lower back panel provides maximum buoyancy and freedom of movement in the water.

Comfort

With less panels on the legs and arms, both functionality and comfort of the suit has been increased from it’s S5 predecessor.  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.

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.

Hydrolote

HydroLite panels featured on the Orca S6 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 Orca S6 suit fast to remove in transition saving you precious seconds.

Incinityskn

It’s what’s on the inside that counts and Orca’s unique InfinitySkn lining plays an integral part in the unbelievable flexibility of our top end wetsuits. Constructed from a high stretch nylon, InfinitySkn is strategically placed where ultimate stretch is required.

A wetsuit for every swim style

Orca biggest focus has been on how they can help athletes swim faster when they’re in their wetsuits. Orca know that not all swimmers are alike. Within their wetsuit range they offer wetsuits to suit every swim style and budget so that every athlete’s individual needs can be met. In over twenty years of studying swimmers, they’ve narrowed these main requirements down to the following:

Orca S6 Mens Wetsuit 2016 Reviews

“The Orca S6 triathlon wetsuit gives a overall great performance for freediver. It is not designed specific for it. Nice as expected.”

Pros: Attractive, Comfortable, Good Fit, High Quality

“Great buoyancy. Sizing chart is accurate. Sleeves do not restrict arm rotation and fitting on not as cumbersome as other products. Dries fairly quickly. Lightweight. Must buy for any dedicated athlete wanting to take it to another level. Bit pricy but you are going to have it for a while. ORCA arsenal was not easy making the choice as their product line is so diverse.”

Pros:  Good Fit, High Quality

I am very tall,, 2.00 m, and slim and I was concerned about buying without trying, but I’m glad I did. The orca sizing guide put me at an 11 but I choose a size 9 as that was closest to my chest size. My torso fits it like a glove and I am able to swim so much further than in my winter, surfing wetsuit before my arms get tired. However, because of my very long limbs, it is almost a three quarter length suit on me, which is not a problem now that the sea is warning up.
Having a loop to arch my car key to is a plus and it is quick and easy to get in and out of. I love it.
Pros:  Good Fit, High Quality, Lightweight

Orca TRN Thermo Wetsuit Reviews

“Bought first tri wetsuit for cold swims in open water in Northumberland, up north. Held out well in cold may water in training. Went on to first tri race in Eton dorney where much warmer. Suit was buoyant and comfy in race and quickly came off in transition.  Good value wetsuit.”

Pros: Attractive, Comfortable, Durable, Good Fit, Great Value

Cons: None at this price point

“I have used Orca TRN Thermo Wetsuit for my first open water swims and it has performed very well. I have used it in water temperature of 13 Celsius it has kept me warm. The fit was perfect from the size guide. I have only used it twice so far so cannot comment on how it will perform over a long period of time. At the moment I am very happy with my purchase.”

Pros: Comfortable, Good Fit, Great Value, High Quality, Lightweight

Cons: takes a few swims to bed in

“Regular sea swimmer only strong easterlies keep me out of water, gets too rough thankfully westerlies nine out of ten days. Have used this suit from late December to end April in water down to 7.8° amble warmth once over initial shock and not too much buoyancy and good flexibility unlike my surf suit. Appears to be wearing OK a few minor Nick’s hopefully will get another winter out of it. Flo green on arms shows up well in the water which is good when going out in cove to the marker bouys in dull winter sun. Got the matching cap and wear a normal speedo pool cap under it during the coldest months. Now weaning myself out of it with the water getting close to double figures. Overall very pleased excellent value and cost less than would have spend going to local heated pool during the winter. I’m 180cm 41″ chest 75kilogram and size 7 fits comfortably snug don’t think I’d be able to get in a 6 if that helps anyone”

Pros: Attractive, Comfortable, Durable, Great Value

Cons: Didn’t turn me into Brownlee brothers
