The 1.5 Alpha (named after the triathlon swim distance) offers a wetsuit swim like you’ve never experienced before. Refined and re-engineered in consultation with the world’s best triathletes. The 1.5 Alpha retains the Freestroke 3 System paneling but now with #44 cell Yamamoto Neoprene panels through the chest, back, arms and shoulders.

Plus the addition of our exclusive Infinity Skn lining, the Alpha offers an unrestricted range of motion - so much so, many people say it doesn’t even feel like they’re wearing a wetsuit. The 1.5 Alpha is the ideal wetsuit for those looking for a swim advantage without compromise.

The 1.5 Alpha offers the highest quality materials, performance features and fit. Designed with seam reduction for larger areas of neoprene that increases flexibility.
We have also included another exclusive, Aerodome 2, allowing for great flexibilty and comfort. Other features for the 1.5 Alpha include the comfortable low profile neck seal, designed to sit flat against the neck, limiting water entry and reducing the incidence of chafing.

The moulded silicone aquatread forearm panel has been enhanced to provide increased stroke power in the catch phase, whilst remaining easy to remove during transition. The high stretch nylon 4 way free stretch inner lining is mated to the freestroke 3 system panels to allow dynamic movement.

About Orca

Orca is a manufacturer that can trace its roots back to New Zealand in the early 90's. Scott Unsworth competed in triathlons and believed he could design greater wetsuits than were currently available. Starting the business in his parents house he developed wetsuits which were more flexible and buoyant than other existing wetsuits.

The company went from strength to strength growing more popular amongst triathletes. Hamish Carter was one of the first athletes to sign up for the company, today known as Orca, and for over a decade became one of the most renowned triathletes in the world – earning a gold medal along the way at the 2004 Olympics in Athens.

Like its beginnings, Orca have not lost its motivation to innovate triathlon clothing and continues to be a market leader in the triathlon market.
