As the most versatile wetsuit in the range, it is suited to the technical capabilities and needs of much of the triathlete community. Designed for the Total Swimmer, it combines buoyancy and flexibility in order to achieve a correct position in the water, improving your hydrodynamics. The Sonar gives you the confidence you need to push a little further.
With the Sonar you get 30% more buoyancy and it will help you maintain a horizontal and elevated position for longer thanks to the Aerodome technology in the men's model and the targeted buoyancy.
Thanks to the 1.5 mm Yamamoto 39 panels and inner Super Stretch lining, you will notice an increase in your stroke distance.
CLS technology supports your abdomen, preventing twisting, and when combined with Aerodome it will help you maitain correct positioning in your lower body.
- Flexibility: 81%.
- Buoyancy: 78%
- Hydrodynamics: 76%.
The Yamamoto Corporation is the world’s main supplier of high performance neoprene. Its seal represents quality, technology and innovation.
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.
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.
The all-new SuperStretch lining featured on the chest of the Sonar is a lightweight lining that is super stretchy due to it’s makeup and the way it has been knitted. It absorbs little water, meaning the panel stays more buoyant and contributes to making the chest really stretchy for unrestricted breathing.
This new technology applied to the lower trunk area provides 30% greater buoyancy for swimmers. The secret lies in its composition: hundreds of cavities located between two layers of previously treated neoprene. Unlike the Exo-lift, the inner layer of this material is made up of a high-quality lining that gives the wetsuit greater elasticity. Orca uses this material in the areas with the greatest body weight to raise you up to an optimal position in the water.
Ultimate Seal Collar
The combination of laser cutting on the neck and the inverse Velcro reduces friction preventing any abrasion on the skin.
