The 3.8 wetsuit is going to give you maximum buoyancy in the water. Correcting your swim style by lifting your legs and core into a far better, more streamline position in the water or just allow you to rest your legs, ready for the bike and run!

The 1.5mm 40 cell Yamamoto neoprene shoulders, and under-arm panels give elite level flexibility where you need it most. Allowing you to go fast or longer and save as much energy as possible.

If you want comfort in the water, the new bevelled neoprene collar in the 3.8 will sit nice and low and yet still provide a great seal. So, that you can focus on stroke and enjoying swim.

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 its class.

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.

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.

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’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.

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.


  • Flexibility: 1.5mm 40 cell Yamamoto shoulders and underarms give you ultimate stretch where you need it most.
  • Speed: 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.
  • Buoyancy: The new men’s specific buoyancy in the 3.8 now allows more balanced buoyancy with a 3mm chest panel and a greater front area of 5mm Exo-cell on the waist than the female version. 5mm SCS coated Aerodome 2 on the butt also gives even greater lift than any previous 3.8 before.
  • Comfort: Super thin 2mm SCS coated neoprene collar provides the ultimate in comfort.




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.
