The S6 Sleeveless Women's Wetsuit, like the S6 with sleeves, is the alternative to the 3.8 for the Progressive Swimmer. This type of swimmer needs extra buoyancy, so the S6 is designed to raise the triathlete in the water without forgetting the stretch needed in the stroke. The perfect tool to keep going through the water transition.
The neck lining reduces friction and therefore the appearance of chafing. What’s more, the soft material improves contact with the skin, making it more pleasant to the touch.
The S6 is intended to correct your position, raising it as much as possible. The 5-mm thick neoprene used on the hips and legs helps your lower trunk area stay on the surface at all times. The 3-mm thick panel on the chest prevents the body from twisting, which is typical of an incorrect breathing technique.
The Hydrolite made of 39-cell Yamamoto neoprene on the lower part of the legs make your transitions faster. Taking off your wetsuit is now easier than ever.
The Yamamoto Corporation is the world’s main supplier of high performance neoprene. Its seal represents quality, technology and innovation.
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.
Acting as a coating over closed-cell neoprene, Super Composite Skin (SCS) has become the benchmark for coating the smoothskin neoprene used in triathlon wetsuits, to reduce friction and increase speed through the water. The micro-cell structure of the SCS coating repels water when in contact with air and reduces surface resistance when in contact with water. Less friction = more speed!
HydroLite panels make transition that extra bit faster using the super fast SCS (Nano ICE in the Predator) which combined with a special lining which absorbs less water to improve buoyancy while also being extremely sleek -making the suit fast to remove in transition saving you precious seconds.
It’s what’s on the inside that counts and Orca’s unique InfinitySkin lining plays an integral part in the unbelievable flexibility of our top end wetsuits. Constructed from a high stretch nylon, InfinitySkin is strategically placed where ultimate stretch is required and allows the wetsuit to move dynamically through your swim stroke.
