The Orca Equip Fullsleeve Triathlon Wetsuit is ideal for those transitioning from the pool to open water, or unfamiliar with swimming in a wetsuit. 2-5mm premium quality SCS-coated Yamamoto 39-cell neoprene front panels ensure a range of motion normally associated with intermediate and top level wetsuits. 3-5mm Smooth Skin neoprene panels through the back add buoyancy, while Speed Transition panels aid transition times. The Equip’s Hydrostroke forearm panel has a distinctive silicone print, which catches the water through the pull phase of the stroke. The 2014 Equip’s redesigned torso panel also provides better body positioning, plus increased buoyancy through the waist and the thighs. A multi-stretch lining makes the suit incredibly flexible. Refinements to the waist panel include extending it over the chest, while retaining its 5mm thickness to boost buoyancy.
Why Use It? 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.
