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!
Modern triathlon wetsuits were invented by Dan Empfield in 1987 and are customized to the needs of triathletes, they generally incorporate the following key features which differentiates them from a normal wetsuit. 1, Thinner and/or more pliable rubber near the shoulders. 2, Long zippers to facilitate quick removal during transition. In addition, tri wetsuits have a very smooth, but often fragile, surface. This slick surface helps to reduce water friction and allows a faster swim. Another advantage of a tri wetsuit is the added buoyancy that the wetsuit provides, this can provide triathletes with a considerable speed and energy saving advantage over swimming without a suit.
About the Orca brand
Whilst working as a swim coach, and from his first hand experience in competing in triathlon, Scott Unsworth realised that the wetsuits used at the time were completely inadequate for swimming. In 1992 Scott started up a company called Performance Speedsuits Ltd, based out of his parent's house in Auckland, New Zealand. He began to develop his "Speedsuits", which featured greater flexibility and buoyancy than other existing wetsuits. The business started with Scott selling his Speedsuits from the back of his car at swim meets and triathlon events. The Speedsuits quickly gained a following amongst athletes and the business started to grow. Scott was taking his first steps towards introducing what would become Orca, to the world. A young New Zealand triathlete named Hamish Carter became one of the first athletes to sign up with the company that is now Orca. Over the next 13 years Hamish Carter went on to become one of the best known triathletes in the world - culminating in a gold medal at the 2004 Olympics in Athens.

Product Q & A
Ask your questions and share your answers.
It fits perfectly, i did try the 7 & 8 before the 9
help me with picking the size please, as the input parameters are:
*height = 180 [cm]
*chest = 100 [cm]
*weight = 68 [kg]
Gender: Male, Eight is 169 - 170 cm, weight 62 to 64 kilograms
My chest size vary slightly due to breathing, scapula position and tape press on soft tissue, my chest is from 99 cm to 101 cm
I´m not sure if the best option is 6 or 7,
I fit perfectly on 6 in height, and weight is 5-3 lower ( but I think it is not so critical.. ) but I´m afraid of having issues to close the suit for those 2cm during max chest sizing, size 7 is to large for me, from 3 to almost 16 cm larger.
Thanks in advance.
Hola, espero que se encuentren bien, he revisado las preguntas de aquí y las tablas de tamaño de Orca, aún me siento preocupado por el tamaño.
Sexo Hombre, altura 169 a 170 cm, peso 62kg a 64
Mi pecho ha medido de 99 a 101 segun lo apretado de la cinta, la respiracion y un poco por lo salido de las escapulas al momento de medir
No se si sea mejor el 6 o 7, el 6 tiene el largo ideal, mi peso es un poco menor, pero el pecho queda justo, muy justo, sin embargo el 7 me quedaria muy largo.
Gracias por anticipado.
