Our most popular wetsuit in 2020 the Orca Equip gives you one of the most flexible wetsuits under £250. Combined with less buoyancy in the legs it is the perfect wetsuit for confident swimmers who want the freedom of movement in the arms but don’t want any additional buoyancy that wetsuits at a similar price often give.
With less buoyancy in the legs, the Orca Equip is also a great option for swimmers doing breaststroke.
- Flexibility - 1.5mm Yamamoto 39 material in the arms provides the flexibility found in higher-end wetsuit
- Freedom - The infinity skin lining provides freedom of movement which is also gentle on your skin
- Hydrodynamics - SCS panels will minimize the wetsuit's resistance in the water that will help you glide in the water
- Faster Transitions - Hyrdolite panels allow the wetsuit to slip off more easily during transitions

Our new Equip Wetsuit offers maximum flexibility without changing your position, ideal for Natural Swimmers. With Yamamoto 39 technology and the most stretchable lining on the market, with just the right amount of buoyancy has been provided for this type of swimmer without raising the lower body so much that you kick out of the water. The result is an unrivalled feeling of freedom.
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.
SUPER COMPOSITE SKIN (SCS)
Super Composite Skin (SCS) is the leading triathlon wetsuit lining because of its capacity to reduce friction and to provide the best possible hydrodynamics. Orca uses the most innovative version of Nano SCS, developed by the Yamamoto company, to ensure top speed in the water. The friction coefficient in the water of Orca’s Nano SCS is 0.026, as compared to an average of 4.0 for the other wetsuits.
The HydroLite panels help the wetsuit come off easier, for faster transitions. This technology, combined with the SCS coating, helps the water slide off your wetsuit, without permeating it, considerably improving your hydrodynamics.
The inner Infinity Skin lining provides the feeling of absolute freedom. Designed based on a high-elasticity nylon that incorporates bamboo fibres, this technology is applied to the lining of our wetsuits to offer you greater flexibility with each stroke. This cloth maintains body heat longer, reduces body odor and the appearance of bacteria in your wetsuit. It is also made from natural eco-friendly materials to prevent the appearance of skin irritation and care for the environment.
