The S5 is an entry-level open water swimming wetsuit that offers great technical features for superb value. Made fully of quality Yamamoto neoprene, the S5’s significantly improved panel lines increase functionality and comfort while also providing maximum buoyancy and freedome of movement in the water. The Orca S5. For best entry-level value.
Significantly improved panel lines from its S4 predecessor such as a seam-free front panel from neck to knee increases both functionality and comfort.
5mm SCS coated Yamamoto front panel provides maximum buoyancy and support in the market for your first open water swimming experiance.
Re-designed 2mm 39cell SCS coated Yamamoto underarm, shoulder and arm panels combined with the highly flexible Powerstretch lining provide a superb range of motion and improve flexibility.
The silicon print hydrostroke catch panels on the forearm increase power on the stroke.
The Yamamoto Corporation is the world’s main supplier of high performance neoprene. Its seal represents quality, technology and innovation.
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.
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. Less friction = more speed!
