The Orca 3.8 men’s triathlon wetsuit sees many new features added and modifications made when compared to the previous version. The torso of the wetsuit now features the AeroDome Core Equilibrium technology which sees 5mm panels of Yamamoto AeroDome neoprene used in its construction. This gives the core of the wearer’s body more than 30% more buoyancy. To achieve this hundreds of tiny air cavities are sealed within the neoprene helping you float better and keep you in the optimum position for speed and increased power in the water.
The arms of this triathlon wetsuit have been moulded to imitate the surface of a tyre giving you more traction and friction in the water helping you to displace more water as your arms stroke through the water. This effect sees the suit ‘grab’ at the water, pushing it behind you.
Premium Price for a Premium Suit
The premium nature of this wetsuit is reflected in its price tag so if you are on a budget or not a competitor who demands the best then it might not be for you. But if you are willing to pay the relatively high price tag then you will be getting yourself a great product that is right up there with the best full sleeved wetsuits on the market. If you plan to enter multiple triathlons over the coming months and years then this could be a worthy investment and it is likely you will end up buying a premium suit one day once you surpass the level of a beginner and your entry level triathlon wetsuit no longer meets your requirements. So in a way this wetsuit could actually save you money in the long run!
Orca have shown time and time again that they are one of the best manufacturer of wetsuits for triathlons so this one should definitely catch you attention.
Orca 3.8 with CardioFlex
The chest panel of the Orca 3.8 has what is known as CardioFlex technology to allow for increased flexibility and freedom of movement around the chest and shoulder areas.
If you want a modern suit with all the features that will help you record a record time then the Orca 3.8 wetsuit is definitely worth putting on your short-list.
