Yonda Ghost Features

Buoyancy – The most flexible Yamamoto #39 SCS Skin AERODOME is used on front chest and thigh to centralise the core and raising the hips. This allows for a perfect natural body roll when extending the arms into the catch and pull.

Comfort – Chest and Torso uses Yamamoto #39 SCS Skin AERODOME allowing flexibility to breath easily by accentuating the lung area.

To Aid Technique – Yamamoto #40 SCS Skin AQUAPULL is used in sleeve, wrist and underam areas – this is super thin permeable fabric that is married to FASTDRY waterproof lycra in the forearm. This creates a great feel in the water and makes the catch point more sensitive and allows for a stronger pull.

To help allow for better sighting the YONDA Ghost wetsuit has a reverse style zipper which means no bulky collar.

Speed in water- -SCS (Super Composite Skin) coating on the outside reduces friction and increases your speed though the water.

Speed in Transition – Tested in the 2014 & 2015 World Series and British Super Series, the YONDA wetsuit proved to be very fast to take off in T1 where seconds make all the difference. The design of the YONDA Ghost wetsuit coupled with Yamamoto #39 SCS Skin in the calf area allows for the suit to be kicked off fast!

Yonda Ghost Wetsuit Reviews

Thank you to Yonda who turned around an order for kit for the Yorkshire & Humberside Regional Junior Triathlon Team. The service was fantastic, with samples for all sizes to try on. The kit arrived in good time even with the short turn around time they were up against. The finish on the kit was very high and definitely made the kids feel like elite athletes. They were all very proud to wear the kit and very pleased with quality and fit.
Debra, Yorkshire & Humberside Regional Junior Triathlon Team

At Holmfirth Harriers we have been waiting a long time for a kit supplier to tick all the boxes. Yonda did that with our first order:
Great Kit, Great Price, Great Service – and we didn’t have to wait 6 weeks for delivery.
Andrew Kerry, Holmfirth Harriers

I have raced in the Yonda Evoke wetsuit and Elite trisuit all season. The trisuit is very comfy and snug enough when racing in non wetsuit races. The Yonda wetsuit is the comfiest I have worn with great flexibility on the arms, the high quality of the suit while swimming is second to non and also makes for super fast transitions too.
Lewis Byram, Yonda Athlete

The elite trisuit is comfortable to wear and as it is Teflon coated it is a dream to swim in, I’ve had plenty of positive comments about it!! There is just the right amount of padding in the seat for the bike but not constrictive in any way on the run, highly recommended! The wetsuit is amazing to swim in, I have nothing to compare it to as this is my first wetsuit, but I have just completed my first half ironman distance triathlon and its a great fit and comfortable to swim in.
I would highly recommend the Yonda range and I will definitely be purchasing more kit!
Dinah C, Half Ironwoman

Having a running background, the swim was the one I needed to work on. In the beginning it really didn’t matter what to wear, however when the open water swim distance increased, the wet suit became the most important factor. For someone like me, Yonda’s wet suit provided me with a confidence I needed, it fits brilliantly and even makes you look slimmer! Its light but warm, its flexible and durable. It is brilliantly designed with accent on every single possible thing that matters, small or big. This wet suit looks cool and most importantly it is fast!! It makes you feel like you’re gliding, whether the waters calm or choppy. Truly looking forward to the next tri season, felling confident with my swim Great value for money and you are worth it!
Bea P, Ironwoman

As a newbie to the world of triathlon, I have faced many challenges, one of them being kit. What’s good, what’s not, is it overpriced etc. Yonda has taken that worry away allowing me to focus on the race. Whilst there kit is competitively priced, the products are first class in quality, durability and comfort, and I hope they expand there range very soon!
Tracey N, Half Ironwoman

I have exclusively used Yonda for all my races this season and it has out performed some of the top branded kit I have owned. The pricing is extremely competitive and is not in any way indicative of a compromise in quality, durability or performance. I look forward to the range expanding as more people become aware of this exciting new brand.

Orca TRN Thermo Wetsuit

Orca Triathlon Wetsuits

One thing you’ll notice immediately upon sliding into an Orca Wetsuit is that it fits incredibly well. Orca designs products with the athlete in mind and with the direct feedback of some of the elite names in our sport. Anyone heard of Craig Alexander? Many of Orca’s most innovative new designs such as Orca TRN Thermo and features are the direct result of working with professional athletes – who else could provide the insight into what really works on the race course?

Orca products are designed and tested on athletes, not computer models. The design, materials and production techniques are always at the cutting edge. Creating a wetsuit line such as the one you are about to see takes years of experience, years of trying new things and countless hours of testing. In the congested world of look-a-like triathlon wetsuits, Orca truly stands out with a suit for any occasion. Come see why some of the most accomplished athletes in the history of triathlon started and finished with Orca triathlon apparel and wetsuits.

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
