Product Details

Having introduced the open water swimming world to the superior buoyancy of Aerodome, Orca has once again raised the bar with the Exo-Cell Buoyancy System (butt lift). Exo-Cell is an innovative new material that is more than 25% more buoyant than Aerodome - it is used in a system of key areas on the rear area of the wetsuit to help optimize the swimming position, without affecting stroke and kick power.

The Orca Alpha retains the FreeStroke 3 System of Nano SCS - coated 1.5 mm #40 Cell panels through the arm, shoulder, chest and back areas. These lightweight panels are ergonomically crafted to provide unrestricted range of motion - so much so many people say it doesn't even feel like they're wearing a wetsuit. by combining the swim position achieved by the Exo-Cell Buoyancy System with the unparalleled flexibility of the FreeStroke 3 System, the Alpha is the ideal wetsuit for those looking for a swim advantage without compromise.

Other new features for the Alpha include the comfortable low profile neck seal, designed to sit flat against the neck, limiting water entry and reducing the incidence of chafing. The molded neoprene Aquatread forearm panel has been enhanced to provide increased stroke power in the catch phase, while remaining easy to remove during transition. The high stretch 3 System panels allow dynamic movement, while the Exo-Cell panels are lined with a smoothskin neoprene fro comfort and water resistance.
