I’d recommend this suit if you’re regularly competing or training in temperate to warm waters. The suit will work wonders and help you become a better swimmer and get through T1 faster. I recommend this wetsuit if you consider yourself “odd shaped” and have a hard time finding the right fit in a one-piece wetsuit. The Orca Athlex Float wetsuit is ideal for those new to triathlon or open water swimming, with its highly buoyant design providing high levels of stability and confidence in the water. Supportive yet lightweight, this wetsuit is constructed from flexible Yamamoto neoprene, enabling a wide range of motion to limit fatigue on longer swims. Arms Up Construction: Arms Up Construction is another patented ROKA feature. ROKA designed its suit while the model’s arms were above the head instead of at the sides. This means you’ll have more arm movement during the swim.

A specifically designed open water swimming wetsuit will improve the speed of which you transition between stages compared to diving or surf-specific wetsuits. Speaking of panels, this wetsuit has a fair number of impressive ones as well. For instance, this is one of the few wetsuits that we saw which features a single shoulder panel. This is important because it provides the wearer a more stable fit as well as a greater range of motion considering it does not have seams. An SCS coating limits friction, boosting hydrodynamic performance for an effortless feel. By providing additional float, this wetsuit helps build technique and speed, keeping the wearer stable in the water.


Triathletes who have bought the wetsuit like it because it was specialized for colder water swimming. They liked all the technologies of Roka along with its great customer service. Most people who have bought the wetsuit say that it really supports their natural stroke so they don’t have to work as hard in the water.

Yamamoto is one of the main materials of the wetsuit, which makes it the most stretchable wetsuit available. The results have been fairly impressive, though it definitely means that the TYR company is not specialized in triathlon wetsuits. That is part of what makes it so surprising that it has captured our editor’s choice-and did so fairly easily. Speed


If you have a good stroke, this wetsuit will enhance it even more and help you glide in the water. The extra buoyancy will help you from getting tired during a long swim practice or race. This type of suit will generally be made of neoprene and feature numerous layers as well as features to provide the wearer with varying degrees of insulation from the water’s chill. Storing your wetsuit properly keeps the materials and seams from creasing and being stretched for long periods of time. It also prevents the material from wrinkling, which can affect both the wetsuit's durability and appearance.

The inside of the wetsuit was not overlooked during the design meeting. The wetsuit was made with liners that complement the outside technologies so that you won’t feel restricted while in it.

Orca Athlex Float Mens Comfy Triathlon Wetsuit in Red Buoy

The point of this particular wetsuit is not to compete with other traditional wetsuits but to instead fill a niche that they simply cannot. Specifically, this wetsuit was designed to be worn by triathletes who are competing in a race that features warmer water. Aside from the fact that this wetsuit does not feature the insulation of a traditional wetsuit, it also has a sleeveless design. On top of the sleeveless design, this wetsuit is not made out of neoprene or spandex like most of its competitors. Instead, this wetsuit features Italian woven fabrics that provide the perfect balance of compression and flexibility. Construction Graduated Buoyancy Profile: ROKA moves the extra buoyancy, found in the chest area in other brands, to the legs, where you most need it. This puts you in a nearly perfect horizontal position in the water since your legs won’t sink.

Since the suit is made with only one type of neoprene, the whole suit will last a long time. Instead of one part wearing out faster since it was made with a different quality of neoprene. The Orca Athlex float is an upgrade to the Orca S7 Wetsuit and has been designed with freedom of movement in mind as well as elasticity and flexibility, this suit provides all that! Using a combination of Yamamoto 40 technology with Infinity Skin 2 lining and Smoothskin surface finish. This composition provides the open water swimmer with complete range of motion in the shoulder area ensuring little to no fatigue in those critical areas. BlueSeventy Fusion updated its 2018 Fusion model for better comfort and arm reach in the water. The new Fusion model has more buoyancy than its predecessor to help prevent your legs from sinking. The Yamamoto neoprene construction is exceptionally elastic for an unhindered stroke and works with the high-quality lining to reduce fatigue over long distances.Centerline Buoyancy: ROKA’s patented buoyancy pattern helps you stay in the best swimming position the entire time you’re in the water. They place their buoyant material in the center of the body. This helps you have a natural hip rotation. I recommend this wetsuit to any beginner triathlete who needs more swim practice. You can be sure that the wetsuit will put you in the correct swimming position so you won’t struggle through the first third of the triathlon. De Soto sells the top and bottoms separately so you’ll be sure to find the right fit no matter what. Everyone loved the bursts of colour beneath the arms and thought the design was extremely flattering. Look to one of our other options, like this Decathlon number, if you’re heading out in cold conditions, but if you just want some extra protection for your summertime swims or water sports sessions, this is your guy. I recommend this product to beginner triathletes. It gives you the most for your money and with the added buoyancy, you can learn to swim better. Most veteran triathletes say if you practice with this suit, you’ll learn the feel of a proper swim position.
