The Orca 226 Kompress Race Suit is the one article of clothing you need for your whole triathlon. It’s ready to swim, bike, and run with you. The armholes are wide enough to allow you maximum flexibility in the swim. The full zipper is placed low enough so it doesn’t bunch up by your neck when low in your tri’ bars. The legs are long enough to protect your legs on the bike, and tight enough so they won’t chafe on the run. And beyond fitting in a way to not slow you down, it is actually designed to help you perform better.
The better is thanks to the compressive quality of the fabric when the suit fits right. The Stretchskin and Vapour-Cool spandexes utilize controlled stretch to better support (aka compress) your muscles. Compression reduces fatigue, and helps you feel better. Stretchskin is found in the legs, side and shoulder panels. Vapour-Cool is a spandex with nano-crystals built in which help cool the body when heat activates them.
A multi-density stretch chamois is found inside, with as little as 2mm of padding and as much at 8mm under your sit bones. There are two-inch wide leg grippers to anchor the legs to your body. There are two large back pockets designed with angled entry points to make reaching into them quick and easy.
The Orca 226 Kompress Race Suit makes you faster.
