Buoyant, flexible, comfortable and fast. Perfect if you're looking for a suit that’s going to give you maximum buoyancy in the water while still being super flexible.
The 3.8 is ideal for you if you want the most buoyancy available to support your legs and hip in the water to improve your swim profile.
Yamamoto’s 40cell neoprene is the penultimate for flexibility, suppleness, fit and comfort. Second only to 44cell by the narrowest of margins and located in key high stretch areas on the Predator, Alpha and 3.8 suits, these panels contribute to providing a wetsuit swimming experience of the highest level.
Exo-Cell is a unique sandwich-designed neoprene that provides over 25% more buoyancy than Aerodome. Panels of Exo-Cell are used in strategic panels on the Predator, Alpha and 3.8 to optimize swimming position.
HydroLite panels make transition that extra bit faster using the super-fast SCS (Nano ICE in the Predator) which combined with a special lining absorbs less water to improve buoyancy whilst also being extremely sleek making the suit fast to remove in transition saving you precious seconds.
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!
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.
It’s what’s on the inside that counts and Orca’s unique InfinitySkn lining plays an integral part in the unbelievable flexibility of our top end wetsuits. Constructed from a high stretch nylon, InfinitySkn is strategically placed where ultimate stretch is required and allo
New men’s specific buoyancy allows more balanced buoyancy with 3mm chest panel, a greater front area of 5mm Exo-cell on the waist than the female version and 5mm SCS coated Aerodome 2 on the butt-giving you greater elevator than any previous 3.8 before.
2mm 44cell Yamamoto shoulders combined with 1.5mm 40cell underarms give you stretch where you need it most.
Super thin 2mm SCS coated neoprene collar provides the ultimate in comfort where you need it most.
SCS coated Yamamoto neoprene is used in Hydrolite panels in the ankles of the suit combined with a stretchy lining that absorbs less water to improve buoyancy and is super sleek, making the 3.8 even faster to remove in transition.
