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. We have a range of wetsuits available to try in our store in Aberdeen. If you are unsure what size please contact us and we can help advise on the correct size.
39+: The increased flexibility of Yamamoto 39 neoprene, combined with the high elasticity of Inifinty Skin 2 lining, provides open water swimmers with maximum freedom of movement. Thanks to this combination, 35% less force is required in fast movements than in conventional neoprene. For slow movements and wider strokes, 45% less force is required than in conventional neoprene. SCS coating also helps reduce friction and water resistance, improving hydrodynamics and increasing speed.
39 FS: Elasticity, maximum flexibility and total freedom of movement are brought together thanks to the combination of Yamamoto 39 neoprene, Infinity Skin 2 lining and Smoothskin surface finish. With this combination, the open water swimmer will use 35% less force in fast movements and short strokes, while slower and wider movements will require 45% less force than any other conventional neoprene.
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.
