Orca Men's Athlex Float Swimming Wetsuit Info
The Orca Men's Athlex Float swimming wetsuit combines high buoyancy with high elasticity, resulting in a very balanced wetsuit for swimmers who need added buoyancy to correct their positioning in the water. Thinner upper body and thick leg materials allow swimmers to tackle open water swimming and triathlons with confidence.
39+: The increased flexibility of Yamamoto 39 neoprene, combined with the high elasticity of Infinity 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.
38+: Yamamoto 38 provides more compression for a better fitting wetsuit, for greater comfort when swimming in open water. For greater hydrodynamics, SCS coating is used which reduces water resistance, increasing speed.
Orca's Athlex FLOAT offers a great balance between value and technical features ensuring flexibility for the key swimming phases with enhanced buoyancy in the lower half. Aimed at the more Progressive Swimmer looking for more buoyancy to help encourage better body position and overall technique. The Athlex FLOAT swimming wetsuit is a superb entry level wetsuit - virtually a replacement for and an improvement on the original popular Orca S7 - so the Athlex Float looks certain to pick-up where the S7 has gone before.
