The Equip offers the most flexible entry-level open water swimming wetsuit to help you transition from pool swimming to open water. The introduction of a superior lining in the 2mm arms and shoulders allows range of motion and flexibility previously only associated with intermediate level wetsuits. A full front panel of Yamamoto neoprene allows for increased buoyancy and flexibility due to a reduction in seams. The Orca Equip. From the pool to the sea.
“If you’re looking to move from the pool to the open water, or you are new to using a wetsuit. Your best bet for an ultra-flexible wetsuit you can get on and off in a flash.” Sebastian Kienle.
The introduction of a superior MultiStretch lining in the 2mm arms and shoulders achieves a range of motion and flexibility previously associated only with intermediate level wetsuits.
A 4mm SCS 39cell Yamamoto front panel extending from chest to knee, paired with a 4mm lower back panel provides buoyancy and refines body positioning in the water.
A front body of fully SCS-coated 39cell Yamamoto neoprene reduces friction while you swim, with the result being you go faster.
The Equip’s Hydrostroke Forearm panel catches the water to increase the power of your 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!
