  • Sale
  • Regular price £699.00
Tax included.


The Orca Predator uses the most flexible neoprene available and combined with 0.88mm in the arms gives the swimmers maximum freedom when swimming coupled with specifically designed buoyancy panels gives the swimmer a huge amount of buoyancy to maximise their swimming.

The Predator is a high-end wetsuit that is designed for swimmers who don’t want to compromise and want the most flexible the highest amount of buoyancy in their wetsuit


Key Features:

  • 0.88 FREE - 0.5mm thick combines the best lining with a titanium coating for better thermal insulation. The most elastic material on the market.
  • Exo-Lift - Combines a neoprene layer, aerodome technology and a third interior layer for maximum buoyancy and hydrodynamics 
  • Aerodome - This material alone gives the wetsuit 30% extra buoyancy to the wetsuit
  • Core Lateral Stabiliser (CLS) with Exo-Cell - CLS is a panel made from Exo-cell that provides lateral rigidity on the abdomen to strengthen your core and thus avoid twisting
  • Yamamoto 44 neoprene - The exclusive Yamamoto 44 technology from Orca’s high-end range is the most elastic version of 1.5 mm neoprene.
  • Zero Chafing - Laser cutting used in the neck seam, reduces friction and prevents chafing

Wetsuit Sizing:

Wetsuit sizing is one of the hardest but most crucial parts of selecting the best wetsuit.  Getting the right sized wetsuit can be a trial-and-error process. For this reason, we advise trying on a range of different wetsuits in different sizes and different makes and models as the exact shape and size of a wetsuit can vary even between wetsuits from the same brand. Quite often the manufactures size guides don’t reflect the best size for you.

PREDATOR

After 25 years of innovation in the triathlon industry, Orca is launching its most advanced wetsuit ever. The new Predator is ideal for swimmers who are seeking the perfect balance between buoyancy and flexibility. Designed for the Total Swimmer, it achieves the highest possible efficiency by pinpointing buoyancy in your legs and providing flexibility in your upper body. It elevates your hip to correctly position your entire body, reducing hydrodynamic restriction as much as possible. The most advanced technology for greater performance.

FOR THE TOTAL SWIMMER


THE HIGHLIGHTS

0.88 FREE

0.88 Free technology was developed with Yamamoto exclusively for Orca, with the goal of creating the most elastic material on the market today. The finest neoprene on the market is 0.5-mm thick and combines the best lining with a titanium coating for better thermal insulation. This revolutionary material is placed in the arms of the suit, providing needed compression to your arm muscles as well as maximum flexibility for bending your elbow with each swim stroke. A step forward in technology.

EXO-LIFT

Exo-Lift is a sandwich-type construction which combines a neoprene layer, Aerodome technology and a third interior layer of neoprene which is treated specifically to make the Predator even more durable, achieving maximum buoyancy and 0% water absorption. A little boost to help you maintain a hydrodynamic position at all times, even when you're tired.

 

AERODOME

This new technology, applied to the lower body, gives the swimmer 30% more buoyancy. The secret is in its construction: there are hundreds of pockets located between two layers of pre-treated neoprene. Unlike Exo-lift, the inner layer of this material is composed of a high-quality lining that gives the neoprene more elasticity. Orca utilizes this material in specific areas, depending on the needs of the swimmer, in order to facilitate proper rotation.

 

CORE LATERAL STABILIZER (CLS)

CLS is a panel that provides lateral rigidity to the abdomen to strengthen your core and prevent twisting. This technology helps you to maintain an effective technique for longer, thanks to its 5-mm thick side panels.

 

YAMAMOTO 44

This material, exclusive to Orca, is Yamamoto's most elastic neoprene with a 1.5-mm thickness. This flexible material allows for a smaller zipper to be used than on the rest of the wetsuits on the market. This smaller closure causes less restriction and improves the product's water impermeability. The new Predator incorporates Yamamoto 44 technology in the shoulders for a perfect fit with maximum freedom of movement in the shoulders.

 

ZERO CHAFING

The new Predator features Velcro on the wetsuit's exterior zipper flap which, combined with the laser cutting used in the neck seam, reduces friction and prevents chafing.

 

SPEED

The lower leg panels, made with Yamamoto 40-cell SCS Nano coating, reduce friction while swimming. HydroLite panels also make wetsuit easier to remove, so that your transitions can be even faster.

      

THE TECHNOLOGIES

  • Yamamoto

    YAMAMOTO

    Orca uses Yamamoto neoprene in all its products, a durable, lightweight and high-performance material. The construction of the panels and the combination of the various high-quality materials place our wetsuits at the forefront of the sector.

  • 0.88 FREE

    The 0.88 Free technology has been developed with Yamamoto exclusively for Orca. Stretching this neoprene requires 90% less strength than conventional neoprene, with immediate recovery.

  • CORE LATERAL STABILISER (CLS) WITH EXO-CELL

    CLS is a panel made from Exo-cell that provides lateral rigidity on the abdomen to strengthen your core and thus prevent twisting. This technology helps you maintain an effective technique longer, raising your lower trunk for better performance, thanks to its 5-mm thick side Exo-cell panels that provide 25% more buoyancy than the Aerodome.

  • EXO-CELL

    Exo-cell technology has a sandwichlike construction that consists of two layers of neoprene and a lightweight foam that provides maximum buoyancy to the swimmer. Thanks to its low density, it is one of the highest buoyancy materials available in the range, and with only 3% water absorption, its buoyancy does not decrease throughout the workout.

  • 44 CELL

    The exclusive Yamamoto 44 technology from Orca’s high-end range is the most elastic version of 1.5 mm neoprene. Stretching this neoprene requires 90% less strength than conventional neoprene.

  • HYDROLITE

    Hydrolite technology helps the wetsuit come off more easily, making transitions even faster.

  • NANO ICE SCS

    Nano Ice SCS is a premium treatment in the high range, which improves the hydrodynamics of the most demanding swimmers

  • INFINITY SKIN 2

    The Infinity Skin 2 inner lining provides a feeling of absolute freedom. Designed from a highelasticity nylon incorporating bamboo fibers, this technology is used in the lining of our wetsuit to provide greater flexibility in every stroke. It maintains body heat longer and reduces bad odors and the presence of bacteria in your neoprene. It is also composed of natural and environmentally sustainable materials, to avoid skin irritation and to care for the environment.

  • AERODOME 2

    Aerodome 2 consists of small air cavities located between two layers of pre-treated neoprene which provides increased buoyancy. Unlike Exo-lift, the inner layer of this material is composed of a high-quality lining that gives the neoprene more elasticity. With only 3% water absorption, its buoyancy does not decrease throughout the workout.

  • CORE LATERAL STABILIZER (CLS)

    The Core Lateral Stabilizer (CLS) system provides support in the abdomen area to prevent twisting while swimming.
