The perfect choice for open water swimmers who need the semi-custom solution provided by a two-piece wetsuit: the Openwater RS1 Wetsuit offers unsurpassed flexibility in the upper body and good thermal insulation. In addition, the two-piece construction allows you to put on the suit without having to use a zipper, and there are more options when it comes to sizing as two different sizes can be combined for an optimal fit.

 

HIGHLIGHTS

YAMAMOTO 40 - Yamamoto 40 is used in the shoulders and back together with the Infinityskin lining. This material can stretch by up to 130%, more than double its original size, providing maximum performance in your swim stroke. For the wide range of movements that occur in the shoulders, it offers 72% less resistance than a conventional wetsuit.


"BATWING" CONSTRUCTION - To avoid heat loss in the back through the zipper, this model features a "Batwing" construction consisting of a second layer of neoprene. This layer prevents water from seeping through the zipper and coming into direct contact with the body, keeping a layer of warm water inside. It also guarantees a comfortable snug fit in the neck, reducing friction and water entry from the neck area into the suit.

EXTRA WARMTH - In the torso, Yamamoto 39 technology which is up to 5mm thick provides maximum thermal insulation where it is needed most, without affecting the positioning of the swimmer or restricting movement. This material provides 85% more insulation compared to not wearing a wetsuit. The Thermal X high-performance inner lining retains heat more efficiently than our standard linings. It is also comfortable and soft to the touch.

THE TECHNOLOGIES

  • Yamamoto

    YAMAMOTO

    Orca uses Yamamoto neoprene in all its products, a durable, lightweight and high-performance material. The construction of the panels and the combination of the various high-quality materials place our wetsuits at the forefront of the sector.

  • 40 CELL

    Yamamoto 40 technology is the best neoprene on the market, not exclusive to Orca. Stretching this neoprene requires 72% less force than conventional neoprene.

  • 39 CELL

    The Yamamoto 39 neoprene has high elasticity that allows it to be used in different areas of mid-range wetsuits. For fast, short-stroke movements, 35% less force is required than with conventional wetsuits. For slow, long-haul movements, 45% less force is required than with conventional wetsuits.

  • SUPER COMPOSITE SKIN (SCS)

    The rest of the wetsuits in the Orca triathlon range include this treatment to guarantee optimal performance.

  • INFINITY SKIN 2

    The Infinity Skin 2 inner lining provides a feeling of absolute freedom. Designed from a highelasticity nylon incorporating bamboo fibers, this technology is used in the lining of our wetsuit to provide greater flexibility in every stroke. It maintains body heat longer and reduces bad odors and the presence of bacteria in your neoprene. It is also composed of natural and environmentally sustainable materials, to avoid skin irritation and to care for the environment.

  • ULTIMATE SEAL COLLAR

    The combination of laser cutting on the neck and the inverse Velcro reduces friction, preventing any abrasion on the skin.
